Wood Block Crafts

I enjoy making wood block crafts.  My husband always has a stack of leftover wood lying around from his projects.  I recently made this name block set and I made the "Believe" blocks last Christmas.  Hope you like them.   If you have made some wood projects; please feel free to leave a link to your blog and share.   Thanks for stopping by!
The scrapbook paper I used came from Stampin' Up.  I cut the letters from vinyl on my cricut.

My Three Ghouls

A friend of mine was kind enough to give me some bed springs recently.  I have been dying to make some crafts and use them.  Tonight -- I was in the mood for something a little "ghostly." I was inspired by this post over at "You're too Crafty".  Go over and check out her ghosts too.  Hope you like them both. 

Turkey Dress Giveaway!

Well.. fall is in the air and I am lovin' it!  This is my absolute most favorite time of the year.  I just love all the fall craft shows and the inspiration it gives me.  As you know, I have been busy making pillowcase dresses lately.  I saw this adorable turkey material and just had to make a turkey dress.  I wish my girls were young again!  I would definitely  put them all in matching turkey dresses on Thanksgiving.  BUT -- since I can't do that -- I am going to give this one away!  It is a size 3-4 Toddler. 

All you  have to do to win this 3-4 toddler size Turkey Dress is "follow me" on Bloglovin and leave a comment on this post.  You can see the Bloglovin  "Follow me" button on the right.  If you have not already signed up.. it's really easy.  Just click it and follow the directions.   To those of you already following me  - I am going to put your name in twice! (please leave a comment so I will know you want to enter the drawing!)  I will be drawing for a winner on Monday, September 30th by 11 a.m.  Good luck to you and share this with your friends!

"Sewing Seeds Outreach" Projects

Hello bloggin' friends!  I have missed you.  I have been extremely busy with all kinds of projects.  I wanted to share with you one of the things I have been working on.  Our church has a group called "Sewing Seeds Outreach".  We make all kinds of things including;  aprons and bread basket liners for our fellowship hall kitchen, rice bags and joy jars for shut ins and friends recovering from surgery, banners for our Bible School, and large apron bibs for the nursing home and Valley Haven School (a special needs school).  Currently,  we are making pillowcase dresses for needy children.  Our missionaries will deliver these when they make their next trip.  I know pillowcase dresses are nothing new -- but they are new to me!  I LOVE making them.  I am enjoying it so much that I have made several for friends also.  I have posted pictures of the dresses I have sewed up for friends so far. I will post a picture of all the dresses that our Sewing Seeds Outreach class does when we are finished.  Thanks for stopping by!


My daughter, Hilary made this one.  It's a tiny size 0-3 months.

Fabrics I have bought to make more!

See you soon.  Please leave a comment so I will know you were here!
