Valentine Bags

These are going to look good with bars of chocolate hanging out of them!!

This one is a little blurry but I love the red fabric.

Started stitching some Valentine bags over the week-end. Each bag is a combination of paper and fabric.

Took these old Valentines and added glitter and hot glued them on a piece of dark red velvet ribbon.

Spent some time working on a Valentine banner this evening. I was out today and found some cool Valentines at an antique store in Creston,Illinois.

This is the finished fabric collage that I gave to my mother-in-law,Barb, for Christmas. The photo is my husbands Grandmother, Mildred. She was a lovely lady!!

Embroidered dish towels that were a birthday gift...
napkins that were in the cabinet...what could I make with these??

Washed and ironed some linen from my old white cabinet. I like to iron this kind of stuff...somebody else can come over and do my husbands shirts!!

Used some left over yarn to knit two scarves.......I'm going to wear them both at the same time because it is only three degrees out!!!

Stamped muslin.

Happy New Year everyone! I got all the closets cleaned out and went straight to my craft room afterwards. I started making a tablerunner with some old stuff I had laying around. All of the fabric is coffee dyed. I also used a rubber stamp to do the piece of stamped muslin....then sewed on some beads.
