So Today I was googling ragtime quilts and up popped my blog. That is the first time that has happened. And I haven't really been up keeping this blog anymore since I now have a Facebook page, and keep a blog about my family. It's just too much computer time and with two kids there are not many spare minutes. If you are reading this post then please try to find me on Facebook or email me and follow me that way. email@example.com.
Here for the heck of it are a few new pictures. Crochet items mostly...crochet fingerless gloves, crochet pink scarves for breast cancer, and crochet wool scarves.
***Note I am not selling through Etsy anymore. It's a great great place but I just cannot at the moment. I love all the things there and the wonderful people I "met" though! And maybe someday I can again....Much love.

Here are 5 new touques ready for the sale. Each are a little different, but all made from the same type of yarn. It is a satin finish yarn which is nice and soft to the touch. I hope to have a total of 10 by the time the sale comes!

Today I was lucky enough to have the majority of it to myself. My hubby took Cody out for the day to get him out of the house so I could have a quiet day. I first cleaned the house (much needed)and spent a little time outside to cut the grass. Actually I just needed to do something outside, because it was too nice to pass up. The sun was shining, which something we have hardly seen in the last 4 months. Anyway after that I spent sometime figuring out a layout for a new baby quilt and I put together this cute medium sized purse. I used some old jeans for the denim and finished the inside with a funky and colorful quilting cotton. It's the same one that I used for the strap etc on the last denim bag I posted. I also used this cotton to form the flower yo-yo's on the front of the bag. They are super cute!
I hope to get several more bags done soon. I am going to have a table at a local area craftshow at the end of November. It's in a small community called LaCorey. I am excited and nervous. I always am when I put things on display! Likely I will eventually get this bag listed in my Etsy shop. For now it's here!

It's been a long time since I have made something a posted it. I guess I kinda got out of the groove of sewing this summer. I find it hard to stay focused when there are just soooooo many things to create and make. And being anal-retentive, I feel like I should stick with some type of thing or theme. So really I just stew and make myself crazy!
Either way, I did finish this fun and funky rag-time baby blanket. It is the 3rd in a 3 part series ordered by a friend of mine. You might recall the pretty yellow bug/ and pink one and also the sweet blue check/ cowboy one that I made already this year. This one is the final one! And I love it.
The funky farm animal print is fun for either a boy or a girl and the yellow makes it bright and friendly! I hope the new baby...expected early October...will enjoy cuddling up in it! Thank you to my friend S.C. for ordering these blankets. I enjoyed making them for you!

A long time ago I mentioned that I would be partaking in a big fundraiser called the Weekend to End Womens Cancers. I spent the last several months preparing by raising over 2000.00$ and walking to try to get somewhat in shape for the event. It took place in Edmonton on Aug 7 and 8 and it was awesome. I have never done anything like this before and I am so happy that I did it.
I was going to do it alone, but in my travels before the event I found out that my neighbour, Michelle was also doing this event in recognition of her mother who died of breast cancer. So I decided to team up with her, her sister Kathy, and their neice Carie. I am so happy I did. It was great to have their support and to support them. It wasn't an easy task to beat the pavement and withstand the high temperatures. The heat was what made it so tiring.
Anyway we completed the event and were still smiling at the end despite sore legs and tons of blisters. Here are some pictures. I am so proud!
