Quilted cell phone holder!

I decided I needed a cell-phone holder.  I went to Mom's stash of fabric and found a cute tan with brown flowers print.  I gathered up a piece of batting and my supplies and this is what I came up with.  I like the little clip that easily attaches to my purse.  It will be nice to hang in my car or on my tote.  Now I have a purse and a holder that will remind me of "MOM" everyday.  Memories never take the place of "things" but it is nice to have "things" that do remind me of "my mommy"!

I miss you, Mommy!

venetian lace

I finally finished the doll I made. I used my MOM's fabric.  I crocheted the venetian lace edging to sew onto her skirt.  It was hard to do.  I must have "frogged" fifty times before I was able to do it.  I love it and I think it looks lovely on her dress.  What do you think?

Santa Ornament!

I decided that I wanted to make some projects using some of my MOM's fabric and some of mine.  The green and red prints are my MOM's and the other fabric is mine.  Now, I have a cute little santa ornament that's a little bit of MOM and a little bit of me. I know she is looking down on me and smiling.  I think it turned out very cute.  I am loving it!  I know she is, too!

Baked potato bag!

Well, well.  I finally finished my baked potato bag.  Wow, it makes the most wonderfully fluffy baked potatoes in the microwave. Simply wash and scrub potatoes, no need to pierce them, wrap in paper towel and place in bag.  Close bag and microwave for 3-4 minutes.  The potatoes are tender, fluffy and not all wilted and shriveled up or hard.  It also works just as amazing for corn on the cob.

Yumm! Gotta run, need to scrub up some 'taters!
