I've been busy making cards out of all my scrap paper:

Getting lots of ideas off of pinterest. And I'm sure I'll be making more.

A gift...

My MIL was cleaning out her craft room and gave me a few goodies.

I love the stamps. Will work great for cardmaking and Project Life.

Baby Quilt

I'm entering this quilt into the Small Quilts at the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

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I originally made the scrappy strips to add to the front for a border, but my daughter didn't like that idea.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.

My MIL asked me to make this for FIL:

I have no idea when she is giving it to him. But it did give me practice on my new embroidery machine!!

Girl Scouts!

It's been a little over a month since I wrote. I've been crazy busy. I'm the Troop Leader for 2 Girl Scout Troops! I took on the 2nd troop just after Christmas when my youngest daughter's troop leader quit. We had a busy time the last 2 months with cookies. And yesterday we had an Ice Cream Party and we made Animal Toys for the Humane Society. I made the girls these to give them their patches.

I made this for my older daughters Junior Troop.

And these were made for my younger daughter's Daisy Troop.

We have a trip planned to the Animal Humane Society in a couple weeks to drop off the toys they made. But no more meetings to plan every week!
