New addition: Old Red Barn is giving away a quilt. Enter...but don't win...that quilt is mine! Old Red Barn
In an effort to keep my mind occupied and avoiding house work, my mind has been working overtime on different projects. Pillsbury cookoff, new recipes, and new sewing projects. My favorite type of projects are for people I love and ones that I can start and finish in a day. And my friend Kate can attest, I'm an avid pattern changer. I'm always taking quilt or bag patterns and reswizzling them for my own amusement (remember the teddy bear pattern that became a kitty!)
Since the oldest Munchkin just got her first pair of glasses, naturally, crafty Mom had to whip her up a quilted eyeglass case. I made up the pattern and construction as I went. I added a flap so her glasses wouldn't slip out in her backpack. And then I recently read a blog about making custom buttons with Shrinky Dinks (OMG, who knew!), so this seemed like the perfect time to experiment with that. And to finish it off, BEJEWELS! Around here sparkles make anything better. The best reward is the reaction I got from the Munchkin,"Oh Mommy I just love it so much!"
