Swiss Journal

For the past few days, I have been working on a photo album of my husband's bike tour of Switzerland.  Luckily, he kept a daily journal which really helped me match his itinerary with the many photos he took.

I kept it simple and now he has a something to treasure, filled with the great memories of his fantastic trip.

Scrap Swap

At the beginning of this year, I participated in a scrap swap through Bumble Beans, Inc.  I received a large bag of scraps from Carol in Minnesota and promptly made 6 blocks using the "Lone Starburst" paper pieced pattern.  Now it is the middle of September and I have set myself a goal to make 6 more blocks - here is the latest one.

Thank you again Carol for sharing your scraps with me.

My husband returned home last night from his wonderful 21 day bike tour of Switzerland.  Now my fun begins - turning his photos, notes and small mementos into a travel journal!

Welcome home Storm!!

September Calendar

I really like the light teal and brick red together on my September calendar.  I used acrylics, scrapbook paper, stencils and ink to give it a feeling of crisp, cooler days ahead.

September BOM

The September block of the month is called "Windmill Star".  I was able to finish it this weekend, I love working with the bigger pieces - it was so easy to put together!

New Pillowcases

After making pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer, I decided to make some for our bed.  They are so easy to make and I think they look great with our other pillows.

July BOM Mini

I finally finished the July 6" Block of the Month.  I really like the colors.  Now I need to work on the August mini and the September blocks.  Wow, am I ever behind!!

I'm having major problems with my computer and it looks like I need a new one.  I'm waiting for my husband to return from his bike tour of Switzerland so we can purchase a replacement.  Hopefully this old one will last for another 2 weeks!!
