Colorado Cousin Purses

Colorado Cousin Purses

My extended family got together last August in Colorado to celebrate my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a great time of fun and fellowship, especially since I got to spend time with cousins, whom I rarely see, from all over the world.

Status Update - July 2013

Hi, everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything lately. I am finding that I’d like to do a major redesign for the site to make it better meet my needs. I have been busy making things since Christmas. I have made lots more zipper pouches and drawstring bags, and I even made my first clothing item (a dress for my little girl).

And someday I’ll get this site squared away… Thanks for reading! Read more »

I went to my local quilt shop a week or two ago looking for fabric for a project. My sister asked me to make her a cover for her Kitchen-Aid stand mixer for Christmas. She just remodeled her kitchen a couple of years ago, and she has a mix of warm, neutral colors in it. She asked for “harvest colors” of burnt orange, gold, or brown. So, anyway, I headed off to the quilt shop in search of inspiration. Read more »
