Woo Hoo All Done!!!!!

So the last of the projects are done and in the mail, well at least three of them are! Now just have a few other little odds and ends to play with, and made the last batch of marshmallows today with Corrie, think I have a problem, love making marshmallows, its just magic! These little book bags are for three of my favorite little boos, one of them will have to "grow" into hers, but it wont be long.... I made them from fabric my sis sent to me, jitterbug, love it even more now that I have worked with it, has such a great feel, and washed up perfect and they way it all goes together, makes what is a very simple bag look way more special!

Kitchen is done!!! This was the most easiest ( I know thats not right but it fits) home project we have ever have done, and think it was really effective, looks like a totally different kitchen, and love the pulls, clearance bin at Lowes, love that, anyways, inspires me to be in there way more, the color is devilsfood, appropriate huh?

This is for my mum, love how this came out, once again the fabric raises up a simple thing to sorta cool, its from Hoffman Fabrics, instead of calling them jelly rolls they call them Bali Pops, the colors are just so incredible. Its for her to put all her yarn in for the projects she makes for next Christmas!

Boy this blog is all sorts of out of order!

So, its been sooo long since the last post seems I forgot how!!! Just wanted to thank everyone who is linked to my sisters blog, when I couldnt craft, you all were my outlet and inspiration with my morning coffee, you all are very talented! These are just a few silly pics of me and my crazy fam, corrie and I on the dock at Camp Richardson, Lake Tahoe and some beautiful little ducks, I adore ducks, just dont know why the guys get to be so pretty??? The little hat is for a very sick little boy who we go to worship services with, you were there were more you could do for a family who is facing such a hard journey, the little bag is for his big sister, its the last of the moda basic grey that i had, love that fabric. The Big hat is for my big/little boy, its from pattern from, its a skull cap pattern that people make and send to her and she distributes them to the military, (on the top of my list of things to do). The scarf is out of 5o lama and 5o silk, my new favorite yarn, really soft but its got a bit of a tooth with the slub of the silk, the pattern is from purl bee, their mistake pattern, really fun. So, everything else is off limits and in a box in the mail. Have a few more projects to finish and then its making marshmallow time, you've got to try it, just a blast!!! and amazingly wonderfully delish, use Alton Browns recipe from food network, way better then martha stewarts recipe. Happy Mallowing!!!

Thanks and some projects

chloe sells seashells.....

So I have a visitor from afar, and she is the best houseguest ever, she asked very politely to get to stay with the seashells and it is just the perfect spot for her. So glad she is mine. My sister also sent me the jitterbug fabric, am just a total nut about it, it was the first thing that was put out on the shelf, one day I will be brave enough to cut it, but for now it just makes me so happy to see it there and to think about my wonderful other-half-of-me sis who sent it to me!

Silly reasons to smile...

I couldn't resist these earrings, their long, have round circles and are blue, they were at the art gallery here, so glad they could come home with me.

Okay, how cool is this, coffee bag from the gas station/bakery/coffee shop/ice cream/wine store, love the colors, the print is this years print from pt. roberts, both will go in the kitchen, think they will look good, wall art for under 10.00, gotta love that.

The flowers are from right outside my door, the colors are just beautiful.

Please welcome Maggie, the jack russell and Timmy, the corgi, they are husband and wife and belong to a lovely woman here who has a boat charter business, and who is kind enough to let us play with them, there is just no way you can look at a corgi face and not smile with your heart.

Paws and a pillow

Slippers paws, I love her feet, she is happy as long as her head is under and her feet are out....
This is the pillow after being felted, I was so excited it worked, shrank over 8 inches, it was like magic, then put the circles to mimic the Kaffe (pronounced coffee in my head even though I know its wrong) fabric on the back.

Luckily the grocery store here on the point is like one stop shopping, they had really cheap camping pillows, it fit perfect, imagine that.

So, this is really kind of awful, but a fun exercise in pastel, thats one thing I would really love to learn how to use, someday....

Beach Treasures

So these are some of the amazing things we saw , thought these rocks were cool, notice the circle rock....

These jelly fish were everywhere need to find out what kind they are, and they are really big, like two feet around, wanted Doug to pick one up but he didnt, dont know why.

These berries grow wild all over the Point, should really pick something and cook something yummy, or maybe just do what the bears do and eat them as I go.

Back to Perfect

So, after a moving day that lasted 3 lifetimes, we have arrived back at Point Roberts, although this time it is without our children. For the first time in a really long time it is just my man and me, not a bad thing, just weird. We left behind us belongings strewn through two states and one foreign country, and dont really know how much of what got left behind that is needed, the only thing that might be missed is the rope I used to have a slight grasp on, think that is somewhere on I-5 not too far from salem, that can be done without for a while too, just float through the next couple of days untethered to any responsibility at all. Only thing in the near future is some beautiful yarn, and a pillow project, think it might just turn out!!! Oh, and trying to master putting a picture in the right spot on this post, maybe if I knew how to use a computer!!!
