I've been busy making these cute little pincushions for a craft bizarre in our area.
I first saw these beautiful pincushions on "Creations From My Heart" blog.
She has an etsy shop she sells them on. She also has a beautiful blog. A very creative person. I just love her blog.

So with the love of teacup and all girly things, I googled teacup pincushions.
I found this wonderful website called "you can make this", and downloaded
the instructions for free for sigining up. Why not I love crafting! and it was free.
You can go to that website by going here, .
I'm still busy making others I just had to show you all
what I had done.

I made this teacup and saucer for my friend Joyce for
giving me a subscription to "American Quilters Society".
What a wonderful friend I have. Such a sweetie!

I have work to do so I must go....

Spring Hose Wreath

This was my inspiration from Touch Stone Catalog. The price $68.00. Yes! I would never
pay that much for a piece of hose and some ribbon.
So I went to Home Depot and got this 15 ft. hose for $7.47.
tied it up with a length of wire.

I also went to Wal-Mart and purchased a Peony Mixed Bush
for $5.00. and a spool of ribbon for $1.97. Then got the trusty hot glue gun out
and started clipping flowers
and gluing them on to my hose wreath.

All done and hanging on my door.
I think it turned out great, and for only
a little less than $20.00.

Thank for coming by... until next post have
a great day. :)

The "Daughters of Zion" a girls group in our church ask if I could host
a Valentine Friendship Party for the girls. These girls are between the age of 8 and 12.
We had a great time and the girls really enjoyed themselves. My daughter
was asked to speak on friendship, she did a great job.

This table is in the kitchen area. We did a pink theme in there
since that happens to be my very favorite color.

My daughter baked the cupcakes and decorated them.

The tablecloth was a PB inspriation.
I think it turned out really cute.

This party really was fun to decorate for, we all had a wonderful time.
Thanks for coming by!

Valentine Table Runner

When I saw this table runner on the Pottery Barn Kids website I knew this was the runner I wanted it for our girls Valentine's Day Tea. But I also knew I probably could
make it for mere nothing.
So I got some red felt, some of my red and white
scrap fabric, and got started.

I embroidered around each of the fabric hearts with the
blanket stitch. I really had a lot of fun doing this project.

I also printed out some conversation heart with the printer fabric.

I really like how it turned out so what do you think?

I'll post more after our Valentine's Tea, which is on the 19th.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Cindy
