Denim Rag quilt

This summer I got a box of Jeans free at a garage sale. So I turned it into a Rag Quilt. I just finished it yesterday and have a blister on my finger from all the snipping.

Baby Quilt

Here's the baby quilt I told you I was working on. It took longer than anticipated since I messed up my back and hip and had to go to physical therapy to correct it. Still have a couple more sessions of therapy, but the therapist was impressed that I'm almost back to normal.

Now I have to sew together more rag letters for Sydney. She got the uppercase alphabet last year. Now she wants the lowercase alphabet to go with it. I also want to make a I spy quilt for the girls but I need lots of different novelty print fabrics for it.

Car Seat Cover

I made this last week and can't believe I didn't post it on blogger.

I found this through pinterest. Pinterest is giving me too many cool ideas. It doesn't help that my back is messed up so I can't sit over my crafts like I want too. I'm in the process of making a baby blanket, so as soon as I get it done you will see it.

So after searching and searching for my box of card envelopes, I finally found a single one! The good news is my scrappy room is getted a much needed cleaning. I decided to decorate my envelope to match a card I made.

I think it adds a little something extra.

Cards from Scraps

The other day I got to looking on pinterest and found a bunch of simple cards that I liked so I got busy making some:

If I can get my computer to link up to pinterest I'll send links to my cards inspiration.

Now I know my ABC's

I made these:

From this pin .

Sydney is having trouble learning her ABC's, so I thought it looked like fun. I cut all the letter templates from my Cricut. Didn't have any ink at the time. Now I have to make the small letters. Sydney took the letters V and I and placed them on top of each other to make a Y for her name.

I just completed this outfit today. Pants are from an old pair of corderoys. Tulle is leftover from dresses I'm making for the girls.

More doll outfits.

I bought a pattern at Wal-mart for 18" doll clothes, (simplicity pattern #3936). I spent all day yesterday playing and came up with 2 new outfits for Grandma's dolls.

My big project.....

I know I've hinted a few times about my big project for my nephew or christmas and never posted it so here it is:

A car mat!! And he loves it!!!

I found different ideas on pinterest, and went from there. My kids all got into helping design it. It needed apples on the trees, the stop signs, Wal-mart... lots of ideas.. one of them also wanted me to make him another one with an airport, or a bunch more that all connect to the roads I already made (that didn't happen)!
