Crafts I’ve been working on…

Just finished this cute green and cream scarf for my sister for part of her birthday present. My daughters and I decided the green color is just so vibrant. Love it so much! Unfortunately, the hat is not finished yet. I am still working on it, so it will have to get sent later. Sorry, Afton.

These NOEL letters I just love. This particular set is going to Sandy to live with my sister-in-law, Nyla. We copied them out of a pic in Pottery Barn catalog, (they were not for sale, they were a prop in a pic), & had a girls night with all the Power side girls, along with a fun friend who came to do glitter toes! It was an evening to remember. And out of it all, we took home a fun, easy decoration.

This is actually 1 of 4 aprons of this kind I am in the process of making. This particular one is popping into the mail to go live in Portland with my sister for the holidays (& forever). Hope she likes it! I picked up the fabric in Salt Lake in October and when I got home, went to my local store to get a little more so I could make a few more aprons but they were sold out! Sad! Glad I got it when I did! Thanks, Nyla, for taking me with you to the quilt shop! Yours is also coming tomorrow!

I’ve been kind of busy.

Ok. So I got a new toy! A new sewing machine! Love it! Who knew having a new sewing machine would be so much fun! I actually think I love to sew now. It sure is nice to have the right tools for the job.

Anyway, I found some fab fabric and patterns up at Scrapbooks Etc. (http://scrapbooks-etc.com/2009/) and have been sewing away.

I made my friend Kim & I matching aprons and headbands for while we were at girls camp doing the craft. The aprons were reversible and so fast to put together. I love the scalloped edge and the big pocket. If I was going to sew this pattern again, I would make the pocket into 2, not 3 as is shown here in this photo.


Here is another example of the bottle cap charm on a very awesome necklace that my friend Kim came up with. She is so talented! We got so many compliments on them!
I just finished this cupcake apron tonite and need to clip all the strings off of it. I just love this fabric. I plan to make my niece a few bibs from the matching scraps of these. Maybe in a couple days I will have some free time to do that.
I found an idea online and I can’t remember where, but when I loved the idea of a little needle book made out of felt to keep your needles in. This is my quickie version.
One more thing…
Check out this sign…quickie cut out for our ward camp.
