This past week I tried my hand at making a quilt. I'm going to send this to an old friend that is expecting in May. I'm trying to reach out to her because she's been through some rough times lately and things God is out to get her. I once told her that He is out to get her, but not in the bad way that she thinks. He wants to get her, and pull her close to Him!

So I found a tutorial for sewing just a cotton panel to minky dot fabric to make a lovely baby blanket. I wanted to make the one side a bit more interesting than just a cotton panel so I decided to try a quilt pattern. I already had the fabric picked out so I just sat down and figured out how I wanted to lay out the squares. I don't think it turned out too bad considering it was my first try and that minky dot fabric is so hard to sew with unless you have a million pins.

New Hobby!

Well my Cookie crafting started after I received a wonderful book called "Cookie Craft" from my wonderful husband for Christmas 2008. I had always love making cookies but they never looked so good. That book inspired me to make prettier cookies, and gave me great directions to do so.

So this past Christmas I received a sewing machine from my mom. I've never sewn before so I wasn't sure what to do at first. I mean, I've always wanted to make things, but my excuse was "I don't have a sewing machine" I decided to just jump in and start practicing with some scrap fabrics I had from other crafts. Then I got the confidence to re-cover some pillows. THEN I got the confidence to try a purse. The first bag came from a kit. From doing that, I figured out how I could make my own pattern...and this is what I came up with.
