This a messenger bag that I made for Alli this weekend. She wanted her first grown up bag, so we went with the green with polka dots, but it is for Alli after all so there had to be some frogs somewhere, so we decided that they could live inside the bag where no one would see them unless she wanted them to. Just like everything else I can't just follow the directions and do what I'm told. No I have to make it 'better' don'tcha know. (Had to throw in a little Minnesotan there.) The button on the front pocket is of Colton he was her boyfriend and he was killed in a farming accident this past summer, so the button is never far from her at any given time. She asked me to add a pocket to the front so she could just drop her phone in and go, not having to worry about the zipper pocket that is inside. She is so excited with it. I'm so happy that she likes it.

This is a wall hanging that I made for someone that my husband works with. It's hard to tell but I fussy cut the centers of the stars from the fabric on the borders, so each star has the navy symbols or a ship in the center. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
These are the cutest little purses I made this weekend with matching wallets. The pattern still needs a little twicking to rally make me happy, but for the most part easy. I think it needs at least one pocket inside. I hope the ladies I made them for like them.

Someone was being naughty! Hope Rich doesn't see them. Now we know what they do all day when we aren't home. Sit in the one chair that is off limits to them. lol They are just so darn cute though sleeping there.

These are some pictures of the scrapbook calendar I made for our friends for Christmas. I think it turned out really cute, and maybe next year when I do the ones for my parents & Rich's mom I will have a little more time so I can be even more creative. I think the 3 I did this year were pretty good for a beginner.
