Owls, Dove and Bird's Nest

I'm loving these owls. I've seen so many on Pinterest and etsy I just had to try them. These are for my niece Ashley to go along with her quilt.

I found the dove tutorial here and the bird's nest necklace here. Loved making the necklaces. Rissa's coming over today to make Christmas gifts for her family. Maybe she'll want to try this.

Queen Size 9 Patch

I've been working on this 9-patch for about 6 months. I put it down in the summer because I was tired of working on it and it was just too hot. So lately I've really been determined to finish it. I made it for my niece Ashley. Hand quilted in about a week, because it has been pretty cold and I could cover up. Hope she likes it.

Memory Pillows

When you loose someone so dear to you, sometimes it's nice to have a little special memory. My friend Angie lost her sister a few years ago. She had kept lots of clothes and wasn't sure what to do them them. Her first thought was to make purses. I tried that, some of the fabric was too stretchy and some was too thin. So we decided on pillows. I made six, 2 sets are identical.

On the backs I used plain silky fabrics and added her sister's name and name of the person it's going to. I used silky transfer fabric for the names and added lace to each. Hope everyone likes them.

Rissa's doll

This is a very sweet, dear friend Rissa. She's 12 and is an awesome designer.

First she drew out her design exactly like she wanted her doll to be. She loves Coraline and wanted her doll to be similar.

I drew out the pattern for her.

She added the button (first buttons she ever sewed). I helped with the embroidery.She also made a Hello Kitty bag from some pj's at bought for $.99.

Then she designed and sewed the 2 outfits. She had sewn before and decided she loves it.

At the last minute she made this darling little blanket and a few bracelet's from ribbon.

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween

Ruby my pretty kitty. I bought her a nice little princess outfit and at the last minute she's a kitty.
Layla is a zombie. She wanted to be a chainsaw masacre, but we couldn't find a toy chainsaw.

Watch out Kitty, the zombie is going to eat you. They had a lot of fun and got way too much candy as most kids do.
