Puppies

I started dog sitting for my sister.  She has 4 dogs, so we are  taking care of one for her.   Little did I know that she was going to have babies.  Three to be exact.  Now I have 5 dogs!

Snow days and new toys.

I bought this quilt frame this fall.  I finally got to use it Monday when we had a snow day.

I used this quilt as my first practice quilt to quilt.

I finished quilting this quilt tonight.  This quilt is made with t-shirts and sweatshirts that were decorated by a woman’s mother.  Her mother passed away and the  woman wanted something done with the shirts, so this is what I came up with.

 

Projects from earlier in the fall.

I was hired to embroider on this blanket for a third grader that lost both of her parents within 10 weeks of each other.  Her class at school gave this to her.

These are t-shirts stretched over art canvases.  They will also be sold at the Taste of Edmond.

First year teacher gifts

Before school started I was invited to a new teacher luncheon sponsored by Rose State College for Mid-del schools.  I was adopted by a business because they sat at the table I was sitting at.  Right before fall break they brought me these letters covered with paper related to cooking and sewing.

They also brought me a cookie cake that I shared with my class.

It was neat to be adopted by someone in the community.

More Halloween festivities

Jemma helped at the carnival at church.  Justin helped too, but didn’t wear a costume.
