I live in the beautiful state of Wisconsin. I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 3 sons. I love to paint, sew, knit, stitch and create. I enjoy selling my creations at local fairs, ebay and here on my blog. When I not crafting I love to decorate my home. I'm always moving furniture, painting or switching things around. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day~*~Leanne~*~
I have been taking full advantage of the cold winter to work on some cross stitch, wool projects and unfinished projects.
I started this before Christmas and just finished the cross stitch portion a couple of weeks ago. I just love the frame around Santa with the snowman, trees and houses.
The above is a pattern from Brenda Gervis of With Thy Needle and Thread.
I'm almost finished with this table topper. I just love all the scrappy pennies....it's a great way to use up all those little pieces of wool. I'm not sure how I'm going to finish the edges yet.
This is a pattern by Lynda Hall of Primitive Pieces by Lynda.
I also tried my hand at quilting. This was a kit I bought many years ago. I had everything cut and marked but that was as far as I got. So one very cold day I finished piecing and hand quilted it. I really haven't done much quilting but I hope to do more.
Don't look to closely because some of my points are gone.
Now to bind it and I'm done. It will be great to finish this off.
I love this penny rug!
It's a pattern from Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings.
All ready to be stitched. I'll start this tonight.
I visited the 9/11 Museum this summer and came upon this amazing quilt....the Victims Quilt.
I started to read the plaque next to the quilt and immediately I remembered my mom telling me about this quilt. We didn't know it made it into the museum.
A wonderful quilt artist from my parents small town Connie Daniel was one of the people to design and make this quilt. It has so much detail every victims picture is on this quilt. Little angels are next to the picture of moms that were pregnant.
My parents, my brother and his family, and my cousins and their families were all able to stitch on this quilt. That how Connie was, she wanted to share her love of quilting with everyone.
First day of school and it's time for some fall decorating!
I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here. My summer was filled with family visiting, vacations, Summerfest, crafting and of course August our birth month. Everyone in our family has a birthday in August so were eating cake all month long.... Yum!
I love decorating for fall it starts my favorite time of the year, first fall and then Christmas.
Craft fairs start the middle of this month and I've been crafting like crazy. Stitching and painting, painting and stitching. Check my Facebook page for some pictures of things that I've been working on.
