    You guys did a lot last week.

    I loved seeing the photos.

    I also enjoyed hearing and seeing how Iris enjoys sewing. Glad she is taking a class. They use to do that at the school my nieces and nephew went to but she retired.

    What are you working on this week?

    I might get some more tulle unless I decide to dig thru my totes.

    Happy Crafting week!

    I'm making another Squished Rat Bookmark, but this one will have a twist ... X-eyes (dead) and some ... blood.

    Okay. Gross like, I know. But there's a knitted version on Etsy and DD25's friend wants one like that. LOL ;)

    Keeping the customer ... happy? :rolleyes:

    Greetings All!

    We scheduled a trip to Nebraska in February and will be there for Julia's 2nd birthday. I'll be working on her I-Spy quilt and probably working to piece another one together.

    Evening project will be Sonja's Christmas stocking.

    Will probably go see the office furniture place to get an estimate for them to build me a custom sewing machine cabinet.

    Finished sewing ribbons onto felt heart ornaments that I made last year. I will pop them in a box and decided what to do with them later. Did a few rows on the baby blanket.

    AJ ~ More cute cards!

    I got the I-Spy quilt sandwiched yesterday and played around with some quilting ideas. My machine was quilting my samples very nicely. I hope it doesn't act up when I start on the actual quilt!

    I also made some progress on Sonja's Christmas stocking.

    AJ the cards are so well made. Do you just make them as you go so that you have a stockpile or do you make them for specific people?

    AJ I love ALL your cards! you are very talented.

    Went to see the knitting lady yesterday and she says my socks are fine to just continue, so today is a snowday and I am off work.... I will be doing my Rudy day... watching a Christmas movie and knitting this afternoon.

    Thanks, guys! :) I can't claim original thought on these cards, I'm just looking on Pinterest then recreating with the Cricut and the supplies I have.

    I have a master craft projects spreadsheet that I run every year and part of it includes a list of all the greeting cards I'll need for the year. I've picked out designs I want to do for each one, for each person, and I'm just working my way down the list.

    Here is the Mother's Day Card I did last night:

    I made a start on another birthday card last night but just ran out of steam...
