Quilts and Afghan

I made this Hexagon quilt in 1989. I never made a quilt before, so this was a massive project with over 3.000 hexagons, all assembled by hand. Truly a labor of love. The wall hanging quilt I made a few years later, all machine pieced and hand quilted.

This afghan I made to shortly after I finished the big California King Size Quilt. Love Granny Squares :)

Mini Baby Album

I made this mini album as a gift for a friend.

I added the bow by sandwiching it between 2 papers

Use three 12x12  scrapbook cardstock
Folded them in half, open the paper than fold it in half the opposite way.
Open it again and than fold the paper diagonally - only one side!

Now cut papers, some in squares and some in triangles and adhere them to your pages.
You can do both sides or just one side.

Add stickers and sayings

And you are done!
This little album makes a wonderful gifts for any occasion!

Knitted Clutch

the outside is knitted using 100%  acrylic yarn
The button is a vintage button

for the inside I chose a metallic cotton blend.
I designed the pockets to hold a phone, lip stick, feminine care or money

The closure is a magnetic snap
