As Requested

These are the decoupaged plates. I am pretty happy with them but I would do a few things a bit different if I do more. The inspiration plates were $58 mine are about $4 each, if that! I am going to put the plate in a square basket, standing upright with a loaf of pumpkin chocolate chip bread for my sister-in law for Thanksgiving. I would like to make some Christmas plates for hostess gift giving .

As we speak, I am putting the binding on the throw. Tomorrrow I will add a stamped patch or two and it will be done! I will post then.~Patti

Birthday gift!

We went up to PA this weekend and I wanted to show off my birthday gift from my friend, Deb. She got me a bunch of fabric samples, you know, from those sample books that we covet. An absolutely fabulous gift!

We made the observation that there aren't many people who would get so excited over this type of thing.

Yarn & Fabric

Here are some projects I am going to tackle.

The first is a throw to help tie the colors of the living room together. The fabric on the far left covers the seats on the dining room chairs. It is very busy so picking fabrics is not very easy. I went to the sewing center in EA and was mildly surprised at the cost per yard of these beauties-$9. Is that alot or am I out of touch? I really need some more prints I think. Three just isn't going to cut it. The striped fabric is green, even though it appears dark in the picture. I'm thinking, black of some sort for certain. Tell me what you think..all suggestions welcome.

The second project is a for a baby blanket. Amy picked out the pattern last weekend and I went to Wooly Lamb and picked out this yarn. It is so soft. It is knit in strips so it should be pretty quick. I can't wait to start it!

That's it from here!~Patti

Costumes and pumpkins!

Look at the Halloween costume I made my favorite 2 year old! it will probably fit him next year, so the plan is to find lots more cool patches for him in the meantime. And isn't it cool that they do Mr. Potatohead pieces for pumpkins?
