Mandy's Quilt

I can finally post the photo of the quilt Mandy made as a present for her sister-in-law! She used fabrics from sample books from Penney's where she works that were discontinued and added the brown trim and backing. I'll post more photos of the finished work later! And all this with hardly any sewing experience esp. in quilt making! It makes me want to finish my log cabin quilt and make more!

Christmas is almost here!

Christmas is almost here! See Toby
on the couch!

More handmade ornaments from my kids!

My painted ornament from 198?

The snowflake is tatting that is hand made and the santa is from my family's ornaments

I love the ornaments my kids made in school or preschool!

Holiday Decorations at the Center

This is the Christmas tree in the Lodge
at the Center in Palos Park. It's
decorated with over 500
pressed Queen Anne's Lace
flowers! This is just the top of the
very tall tree. This part of the lodge
is two stories tall.

Enjoying the holiday decorations at the Center
where our classes are held in a log cabin.

Serenity Prayer

I've been wanting to do another calligraphy
piece of the Serenity Prayer, as the old one
just isn't what I like anymore. Someone
wanted it done, so it pushed me to finish it.
