Only a little creating going on around here!

We have a really busy weekend ahead of us. We have meetings and dinners scheduled pretty much all weekend. I haven't created much of anything lately... my sewing machine is picked up for our dinner party on Sunday. I'm excited for the get together, but I missed my machine these last 2 weeks that we have had people over. I needed the table for people to eat, instead of sewing! Here is a little welcome banner I made from scrapbook papers and a little hanger I bought at dollar tree. I just wanted something cheerful to welcome friends!

What I've Been Doing Lately!

I haven't been creating much in the way of sewing, mostly mending the kids' pants! That still keeps the machine going! I have done a few scrapbook pages and I have a bunch of photos from Sea World that I think I'll use for a mini album. I'm looking for ideas right now and have ordered the photos from Snapfish. I got them all free thanks to my coke rewards.

We have more company this weekend and next weekend, so we are going to stay pretty busy!
Here are a couple of more photos that we took last week:

The Quilt, A Poem

the worn cottony
bluish softness
calls me back
to that time
surrounded by my
light yellow walls
and the love
given by the
small soft-eyed
who sewed the
cottony blush softness
just for me

Organizing Creative "Stuff"

I am NOT good at organizing, especially my creative area! It always looks like a train wreck. So... I have been searching craigslist and found an armoir for my craft supplies. I am hoping to get my creative "stuff" organized. I have my scrapbooking stuff pretty organized, papers, brads, etc. all in drawers and ribbon in jars, etc.

The stuff I can't organize, my quilting notions and my current projects, they just kind of become piles. It's like mountains of memorabilia and fabrics! Any ideas anyone? How do you organize your creative "stuff" and current projects?

DD and I Make a Quillow- OPAM

So I changed my mind... I have always wanted to make a quillow and when my DD saw one I bought as a pattern, she wanted to make one too! I just happened to have a quilt top that was the perfect size and I had started it for her when she was a toddler (she's 9, yikes! that's an old project!). So we spent a few hours making a quillow for her :) She loves it!

I guess this is my finished project for the month- Yeah! I will try to finish another one, but it's shaping up to be a busy month.

Next Project for OPAM (One Project A Month)

I was looking for a quilt top I made for my mother (a few years ago) and found these blocks. I think I'm going to make a little lap throw size quilt out of them. They were leftover scrap blocks and I just have to make one block to finish up the center panel. I'm thinking I'll add a border or two of scraps from my stash (hopefully I have some large sized fabrics as I tend to buy fat quarters a lot!) I WILL find that top for my Mom, maybe for next month...

I also found these 4" blocks, and only 2 of them, maybe I will make something from them as well :)
