The flowers and the bee's



I love catching a bee on flowers and then backing away in hopes of not getting stung. I went to Old Salem and took these as I love the flowers that grow there in the summer

A sequin halter top and a tiger lily







My daughter in law takes belly dancing classes and know I am a crafty girl wanted to see if I could make her some things. Once again I found some pretty fabric at the thrift store and made her this sparkly green halter top. I wish I had taken pics of her wearing it but maybe next time.






Summer wouldn't be the same without taking some flower pics. I love getting up close and personal to a flower to show off the detail.

Is it an ironing pad or a blocking pad?







Actually it is both. Surrounded by lot's of fabric I was debating on what to try next. And of course being a knitter and a crocheter you can always use something to block your small items on that is also portable and can be rolled up and stashed in your knitting bag, Of course there is one more option.... a changing pad for a baby. The outside is a pretty decorative fabric and the inside is cotton. It has quilt batting between the layers and a pretty silk ribbon for tying it up when not in use. Can be used for quick ironing small projects too.

Pillow sham pocketbook


I had went to the knit shop and they has some beautiful pocketbook's that were made out of a tapestry fabric and with a very high price tag of 175.00. Well looking at the bag I new I could make one of those so I went to the thrift store and found a tapestry king size pillow sham and an old pocketbook that I wanted the handles for it. I came home took the pillow sham apart and cut the handles off of the old bag and sewed. The inside has pockets and it can be carried as a shoulder bag or handbag.
On a sad note today makes 3 years since my daddy passed away and I miss him every day.

Burlap and cotton string Market Bag or tote







I found this wonderful burlap at the thrift store. About three yards of it so decided to make totes with it. Now what to use for a handle? I had some cotton string so seemed like a good idea to crochet a handle with it. This is large in size and could hold a lot of goodies and the handle stays on your wrist.
Now on to my next project
