Crazy Quilting for Relaxing

I love to curl up and do a little stitching especially this time of year! The weather is starting to cool off a little bit even though muggy and I sat down and finished this little coin purse for my SIL for part of her Christmas gift. She loves Scratchers and lottery tickets so I thought I would tuck a few in for fun and maybe a clutch bag to tuck it into. Did I mention she loves Cats, I had to include those. Until next time....

Yep It's Me Again Sharing A Little Fairy Love










So here we are and I was just bragging about a cool off, ha... Mother Nature taught me a lesson, don't trust her!! Lol Yesterday when it reached 100 degrees I tossed in the towel and decided Fall is not arriving this year and we will probably just slide into some cooler weather for ?? Christmas maybe. So be it, enough whining already. I'm Grateful we aren't in a rainy flood area or fire zone right now and must remember that:) Prayers for all that are:)
Here is the last of the "what I did this Summer projects" since I don't have a heck of a lot to show for it.
This is a mini Book created for a dear friend as a gift and was really fun to create. Size of this mini is 2 by 3 inches and about 3 inches thick with the front little Fairy door opening to hold some what..... fairy dust of course:)  I really wanted to add a clasp created from the wire that I used to attached the ribbon but my hands just aren't strong enough anymore so after several unsuccessful attempts I went to Plan B, we all need a plan B don'tch ya know... There are a few things I would have added or done differently but we always see what we can make better once we finish, at least I do:) I hope you enjoy the pics as I'm off to get a few more thing done before I run out of day........

Spinning My Wheels

Finally the weather officially cooled of today and I am thrilled. It has been a long hot summer and I have accomplished very little with the exception of completing a class over at Artful Gathering (pic's above") and making a gift for a friend (will show those  pics next time). My youngest Grandkids have returned to school and a big shout out"thank you" to all my Facebook friends for sending Richie postcards for his 5th grade class project!

Blogging has gone by the wayside it seems like everything else when Mother Nature acts up:) Here are a few pics of summer projects from where I left off in my last post, ha.. way back when.....finishing up with the Grands on their first day back to school:) Yep, here comes trouble I call the one in the center, lol
