I enjoy creating blankets for babies too.
These two are simple stiched blankets with fun fabic designs.

My sister Jan and I are into making quilts. We love making them! We have made a lot of quilts in the past but now we are getting into the art of it. As we are making them we feel that we become a part of each quilt. When the quilt is done its hard to part with it because you have grown to love and hate it with every stitch. We hope that the receiver of the quilt will learn to love the quilt as we have.
It fun working with quilt makers, learning new tricks, trading secrets, and sharing stories. In 2007 we made a "sister" quilt. The sister got together to cut, blocks and trade them. I decided to put mine together as a rag quilt.
Jan and I just finished making a TShirt quilt . This quilt was for Jan's son Dustin. Jan had saved all of Dustins TShirts, so it was full of fun memories.
A few years ago my sisters and I decided to get into making jewelry. We mostly made bracelets, we found it to be a lot of fun, relaxing, and exciting to design new ones. Elaine and I did most of the beading, the others most of the chatting. We decided to sale them so we took them to a few show and had some home parties. Here are some of our results and ones that need to be given some love. If you are interested in purchasing a bracelet they are under $10.00, a super great deal!
