soooo, I for some reason....could not get my pics to upload via blogger so I had to go through flickr....anyway....I have not posted in a long, long time....I will try to do better....starting now....this bunkbed set I found at a thrift store for 8.00; it was bubble gum pink. My daughter is not "into" pink anymore...hence the white bunkbeds....then I made mattresses....pillows with cases and these mini quilts....can you guess how many squares are in these babies??

family baby....again

I have yet another cousin (his wife actually) that is going to have a baby....this one is a girl...just a few pictures of the quiltie that I sent off to them last week....I was really pleased with how this turned out....the gray, turqouise and pink :)

tutorial/pattern found at (for some reason I can't link it right now!)

Hard to see but from the right, the second row....the 3rd fabric up (looks like 3 swirly flowers) that fabric was cut from a pillowcase that I took from my parents home when my Grandpa was moving out. :( I enjoyed throwing a little bit of nastalgia in the quiltie.


And here is an upclose shot of my little guy Jack, is this hat not the cutest? I did not make it, I don't know how to crochet or knit....a sister of a friend made it....we all love it.

2011 teacher gift

Tomorrow is the last full day of school for Emily, finishing up the 2nd grade. Wow, where does the time go? Emily showing of 2 fingers for finishing the 2nd grade. :)

Every year I make Emily's teacher a patchwork throw for the end of the school year gift. This year all of the fabric for the top came out of my stash...only had to purchase the batting and backing using some coupon's of course so this really was an inexpensive gift to make, gotta love that!

....upclose...Em's teacher loves coffee so I have some pink and green Japanese fabrics with tea/coffee pots on them and I also had some nuetral fabrics with the abc's and also addition problems on it so that worked out well too, another way to personalize the gift. :)

The label, thanks Mrs. Cutshall for a great year!

The finished product, patchwork teacher throw 2011! Come on SUMMER!

I have been making some pillow covers recently, trying to change things up a bit in the family room and my bedroom. I am an easy peasy girl, nothing too complicated or time consuming for me, all of these have an envelope enclosure on the back so I can just take it off, throw it in the washer or put it away and put a different one on, no ties, buttons, snaps etc. (not yet anyway)

This one might be my all time favorite, this is a picture of my nephew Garrett, oh my gosh this kid is a cutie!


Here is the back, I love using chenille for the backing, so cozy

Here is a pillow I made a while ago, this was a feed sack that I had found at a local garage sale several years ago, I like this one a lot too because it has Spokane on it. :)

I got the idea for this one at a local quilt shop, this is a Moda napkin and all I did was use chenille again for backing....this one has a vintage drawing of Oregon and Washington on it, one of my brothers lives in Oregon {so does Garrett :(} and the rest of my family lives in Washington so it is fun to have a little hometown feel on this pillow too. :)
