New Year~New Discoveries

Well, it seems everyone liked the little dollhouse potholders that received them! It's always encouraging when a gift is well received...makes you want to keep on creating to make more unique items for those you love.

Speaking of unique, I found a great shop on etsy today that has beautiful,bright and fun fabrics. I'm so glad I discovered this shop! It's called 44th Street Fabrics and I just love their offerings! I also visited their blog and they are running a fabric giveaway until January 11th! Check out the sweet and charming fabrics...I know you'll love them just like I do. I think I'm going to have to order this pattern (above)! It is just too cute!!
The new year is going to be a busy one and I'm hoping to get some of my projects finished that have been waiting to be pulled out of the cupboard and worked on for far too long. Let's hope my wishes become reality this year!

Another Little Doll House

Just finished this little house for daughter-in-law, Jessica. Her kitchen is black and white and red, so I think this might fit right in!

Christmas Crafting

Here are some of the items I've made for friends and family this Christmas. The Farmer's Market Pot Holder came from a pattern I found on a blog. It's so simple! Check out Craftzine for lots of different ideas.
I just love creating something special for a dear one in my life!This was made as part of a Secret Santa gift for my CBS (Community Bible Study) Leadership Christmas Fellowship Party. I made it from a free pattern I found...a tutorial called Doll House Pot Holder on Freda's Hive . It was so easy following her excellent instructions.

This is the other part of the gift. A tablerunner from a pattern called "Sew Square Runner" by Pieced Tree Patterns.

Made this pillowcase for a special friend. It is from the pattern "The Amazing Pillowcace" by The Great American Quilt .com
