More Minis

My sister needed some small items for gifts and luckily I had these mini wallets already made.  They were mailed off to Texas to be used for bunco prizes - I do love making these little treasures!

Project Life - Week 6

I can't believe it's been 6 weeks since I started this journal.  I'm so glad I have taken the time to photograph our daily life - this project will be a great reminder of the happy times we have spent.

On her facebook page, Victoria from Bumble Beans, Inc. asked for donated anvil blocks.  She is making a quilt for a cancer patient and I was very happy to help.  She suggested any blue background and bright colors for the center.  I love using scraps and happy colors.  These blocks are off to NYC today.

ConKerr Cancer

My friend Nancy is having a birthday soon.  She has asked for donations of pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer instead of gifts, so I got busy and made these for her.  The pillowcases will go to young cancer patients and hopefully will brighten a child's hospital stay a little.

The August Break # 1 - 5

Many thanks to Kathy at for sharing Susannah Conway's "The August Break" photo prompts for the month.  As usual, I had to play catch up and was able to take the 1st two weeks of photos all in one day at my house.  What was really cool - I figured out how to print on my pictures using Photoshop!!

August Calendar

Summer seems to be passing so fast.  Using stencils and scrapbook paper, I created my August calendar with the thought that autumn is just around the corner.

Have a great month!

August Block of the Month

The Pinwheel Star is the block paper pattern for August.  There are a lot of different fabrics in this pattern and I like the way the colors give depth to it.

After enjoying a visit from my sister, I'm playing catch up on a lot of projects.
