Hello world. I am a SAHM of 4 beautiful children who drive me absolutely CRAZY. Married to a wonderfully ANNOYING man for soon to be 6 years. I live in Louisiana but was born and PROUDLY raised in Northern California. I learned to bake and craft from my Grandma Rosie and how to crochet from my late Grandma Francoise. I want to use this blog as a means to share my love of crafts, food, and crazy family stuff.

I have been busy playing with my "not so new but NEW to ME" sewing machine the last two days and here is what I have made.
My son picked this fabric when I dragged him to the fabric store with me about 3 months. He was unwilling to leave without it and I figured it was on sale so go for it.
I really like the way it came out. Although I am not completely sold on the blanket binding.
Also, I learned that you are suppose to do the "detail" stitching on the blanket BEFORE you add the binding. Not bad for my first try.
This little cutie is the pillow I made to go with it.
I've been going through the kids "too small" clothes and doing some recon. I figured this shirt would be a great addition to my sons blanket.
It was one of his favorite shirts when he could fit it.
