I'm always inspired by crafty people who can build/sew/stencil/paint/stamp and all sorts of things. Not every project turns out the way it's supposed to, but I always wanted to know how something worked so I gave it a good try anyway. When I was little, I was so inspired by reading all of the "Little House" books, I begged my mom to teach me to sew. As a home economics teacher, my mom is a whiz in everything crafty, and we whipped up a lovely little dress. It was adorable!
I still love to sew and many friends have asked me to hem pants for them or fix buttons, rips and tears. I even made a quilt for my nephew when he was born. I'm not sure how much he used it, but I hope his mom and dad enjoyed it!

that say "I love Mommy" and "I love Daddy" are flannel for some interesting texture differences.

I took off the St. Patrick's Day shamrocks and added rosettes.

What do you do to decorate for the seasons?
Have any other ideas for me to try?
Want to more crafts or just get back to food?
