Thanks Cheesy
We tend to use shadow boxes for quite a few crafty projects.  I love dollarama too much...lol  Spend way too much money there.
553  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First non-patchwork quilt!!! IMG HEAVY on: December 03, 2009 08:43:21 PM
This is my first attempt at something other than a patchwork quilt.  Our Christmas this year, is all handmade.  So this is what I made for my mom.  A simple Cathedral Window quilt.  Which, in all honesty, wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be!  Now I'm planning on making at least 3 more before Valentines day!!!

So, here are the progress pics.

All the little squares

Joined.  And not perfect!  I know that.  And my mom will simply say "My Grandma would say...A man on a galloping horse would never notice."  LOL.  My favorite saying by far as well.

My daughter trimming the batting, and one of our many pets trying to help her.


And showing how the back, and the outter boarder are the same.

 :)Hope you like it!  Any comments, or criticism are welcome.

Found this idea while browsing the internet, well, not exactly like it, but you get the idea.  Anyway my daughter loved it!  So, she made it for her grandpa as one of his home made gifts.  Something he can take to his office and "play".  His own Mini Zen Garden.  She even picked out the rocks, because the words reminded her of him.

Whole cost...less than 5 dollars, after tax!  All items from local dollar store.
Photo Box $1
Colored Sand $1
Word Rocks $1
Fork $1 (instead of rake)

After playing with it

With the glass on.

We are doing a completely homemade christmas.  All the gifts that are being given, are things that we can make.  Ex, quilt for my mom.  PJs for neices, nephews.....

I'm having a hard time trying to think of things my 9 year old daughter can make for my dad....and neat ideas?

Thanks Smiley

The hair for both was just yarn that I purchased at the dollar store.  I do the crochet cap, and then tie all the yarn on.

Hi ladies.  Its been nearly a year since I posted.  Embarrassed  Been tons of stuff going on.  Just recently, thyroid surgery, and now tore a bunch of ligaments off my ankle.  Needless to say, not a lot of time to craft.  Hoping that this is the start of coming back to it.

My newest edition, poppets 3+4.  My daughter asked me to make a poppet for her friends birthday on saturday.  So I willingly obliged.  Then my daughter asked me to make one for her own birthday which is thursday.  So, I made two poppets this past weekend.  Both girls will be 9.

Natalie, and Punk (no name yet) Poppet.

And here is their own post.  Let me know what you think.


p.s. Glad to be back!
