My Most recent project

So my Freshtech canning machine came. I have not used it yet, though today might be the day. I have some strawberry fresh from the field that I really must do something with today or they will be past their prime. So stay tuned for that.... I have been working on a gift for my Stepdaughter Natalie's birthday. I have made a decision to give handmade items for gifts when ever possible. they have so much more meaning and since I have so many gadgets to help me create It seems like a great idea. It seems like there is more appreciation for handmade articles these days. So here is the pillow I made for her.

Here is a close up of the detail
Natalie is into dragonfly's and her favorite color is purple. Hope she likes it. Here is how I am packaging the gift

I made the embellishments with my Silhouette Cameo and my Cricut Explore machine.

Here is a closeup of the rosette detail on the bag.

So that's what I've been up to. Projects that I need to get started ASAP include one for my Daughter in law, Chelyse's her Birthday is July 2 and I am participating in a Handmade Swap. I drew a lady from the South who does paper crafting and I think I will do some sewing project to send her. I've got to get that in the mail by July 1 and Chelyse's Birthday is July 2. I've got to get a move on!!!!


  1. Your pillow is beautiful! And the bag is to die for as well.

  2. Thank you so much, I am glad you like it!!
