Graduation card time...

This is not the best lighting in the world, but I think my grad card came out pretty well.  The owl is made with Stampin Up owl punch, a scalloped circle punch (the wings), and a modified 1" square punch for the mortarboard.  I used Sizzix Notepad sizzlit dies for the gold numbers.

Recently, a good friend found a good deal for me on a used Pfaff Creative Vision.  I love this machine for patchwork!  Here is my first project on my new (to me) Pfaff.  My nephew and his wife are expecting their second child soon, and I always make a quilt for the new babies in the family.  I forgot to take a picture after it was quilted, so all I have is the blocks laid out before assembly.

The quilt pattern is Disappearing Nine Patch.  I love this pattern.  It is super easy to make with 5" squares, and it looks like you cut out a lot of different size pieces.  I want to make another one with an organized color palette instead of a scrappy version.  

I have started my next quilt already.  I am working on using up my fabric stash.  That will keep me busy for awhile, lol.

Long hiatus...

Ok,  Life had become quite complicated for me, but I am now working less hours.  I am hoping to get some computer time again, and start posting pics of what I have been up to.  I have been making cards still, but I have also recently starting doing some patchwork and am planning to make some quilts.  These have been long-term goals for me, and I finally have time!

See you again soon!
