Easter Pillow


I recently finished this cute little Easter pillow.



I got the kit from Sharon at Daisy Cottage Quilting. I don't know if she still has kits or the pattern available, but I know she has (maybe had by now) a finished one in her Etsy shop. She always has some of the cutest stuff. Go check it out.....and then drop by my shop and browse a little too.

Another one done

I finished another of the Annie squares I have been working on. 


Yes, it is part of a block of the month that I was doing. Yes, it's been forever ago since I started it. Seriously, though, how can I not manage to complete one block in a month?! That's just crazy.

Anyway, I was looking through stuff and realized that I only need to complete one more! I've already started it, so I may actually be able to finish this before the end of the year. (Don't want to stress myself with some strict deadline. Ha!)

Finally a finish

Do you ever feel like it's been forever since you finished something? Even if it hasn't? I certainly do.

I made myself a commitment that I wouldn't buy anything more until I finished some of the tons of things I have around here already. So, I've been busy working on just that.

I recently finished this cute runner.




(Couldn't get it all in one picture.)

To hold my binding down while I stitched it, I used these cute little tiny clothes pins.



It wasn't what I bought them for. But, hey, necessity is the mother of invention.

Brand new bag



Mama's got a brand new bag.  I made it myself but that makes it better. Right?

Here it is in the process of being made....




How to finish it? Decisions, decisions.


I'm happy with the final product.



I used the this pattern. It's really easy to follow and makes a cute bag.

Easter baskets

This year I made these cute little Easter baskets.


I just taped four boxes of candy together in a square. I taped cardboard to the bottom and a taffy handle on. Then, just fill them like you would any other basket.

I saw it on Pinterest and had to give it a shot. I thought they turned out pretty cute and the kids liked them.

Easter Goodies

Just finished this cute cat toy order.





It's made with brown felt and in addition to the stuffing, it also has catnip in it. They're so cute when they're all packaged and ready to go.

And yes, I send them in an actual chocolate Easter Bunny candy box. It drives my kids crazy because I make them carefully open their Easter candy so I can have the packaging.

But it's all for a good cause, right?

Upcycled pin cushion


 How cute is this tiny little pin cushion?






It's only about 2 inches tall by 3 inches wide. 

I used a little cup that I filled with ground walnut shells (to help sharpen pins) and glued a little puff filled with fiber fill. I lined under the fabric with a piece of felt to help hold the pins in place.

I just can't get over how cute it turned out! I've got several more little containers to work with and can't wait to see how they turn out.
