I've seen all over pinterest and Facebook felt christmas trees. So I made one for over at Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Doll Clothes

I had a sick kid yesterday, so I couldn't work on what I wanted so I made some doll clothes.

Pj's from leftover fabric my son brought home from sewing class.

I then made a skirt. It has a tulle underskirt. Tulle is annoying to work with.

Here is a headband my 11 year old made with my supervision.

This is Pinterest #38. Here is the tutorial. Linking up to Amanda's.

More letters!

Counting this as #26-32 of my 101 pinterest challenge. I challenged myself to start using all the pins I have.

Husband went out hunting this weekend so I spent time sewing. I started the Spell it With Moda blocks.

I'm counting this as #10-26 on my 101 pinterest challenge, since I had to search all over pinterest and blogs to get these patterns from an old blog hop Moda had.

A Descendant's birthday Party!

My daughter turned 11 yesterday and she wanted a Descendant themed birthday party.

So we searched pinterest and came up with some ideas.

We got the idea for the apple and the crow here.

We found the Apple Spell Book Printables here.

2nd spell book idea came from here.

The wall background came from here.

And we got the template for the banner here.
So this is Pin # 3,4,5,6, and 7 from my Pinterest challenge to myself to start using the pins I've pinned!

Here is the Front:

Here is the back:

Fun Fact: My son who was 11 at the time (he is now 12), helped pick out the fabric for this quilt. I had the truck print and was looking for colors to match.

Scrap Jar Quilt

I know I've shared this quilt before. It's the first quilt I've ever made. This one I made for my youngest daughter. I even machine quilted it myself.

Here is the back:

I originally made the scrappy strips to add to the front for a border, but my daughter didn't like that idea. So I added them to the back of the quilt.

I'm entering this into the Blogger's Quilt Festival Scrappy Quilts.
