Scrapbook Page Swap

I joined a swap on Splitcoast where each participant sends 6-10 pictures to another person and that person makes pages for you and sends them back.  Below are the pages that I made for another scrapper.  There was a required theme of "stars and stripes".  Enoy!

My 1st Article of Clothing!!!!!

Ok, so I was at JoAnn's and they had all their sewing patterns on sale for $1.  I thought....hey, this would be a good time to try to make a skirt.  That way if I didn't succeed, I didn't lose a lot of money right.  So I bought the fabric and went to it.  I had some trouble with the hem because of the shape of the skirt, but with some help and pointers from my wonderful MIL, we were able to get it done.  I am wearing it to work today!  I really like it and I am so proud that I made it!!!  :-o

Summer Table Runner

I made this fun "summerish" table runner for myself.  I just love the big daisies and it turned out great!!  I wasn't too sure on the fabrics prior to sewing together, but I think it looks perfect for summer!  I will think twice about using stripes in the future as it was a challenge to get them to line up.  :-)
