New Project

I am working on a new project with these fat quarters. They are a fat quarter bundle from Sandy Gervais' Lovely collection. It's going to be something versatile I can use in my studio and on the go. I finally got everything cut and working on it to finish it later today. I will reveal it tomorrow for my Sew Crafty Thursday link up party. 
Do you have a project you're working on or finished? Link up with me tomorrow.

Spring Blossoms

Happy Monday!
Over the weekend I had to go and get work done on my computer because it was shutting down my programs. While I was at the mall I took the opportunity to take pictures of these beautiful blossoms from the trees along the walkway. Spring is only a few weeks away but these trees are already blossoming. Spring always come early for us since the weather is pretty nice year round.

Did you catch any good movies over the weekend? We went to see Red Tails. We really enjoyed it. Hubby actually met one of them at the Navy Exchange when he was there Friday. This gentleman showed hubby proof that he was one of the original Red Tails.

Sew Crafty Linky Party

While I was taking a blogging break I didn't do much sewing but towards the end I felt I needed to create something, just anything to keep my mind off things. I told hubby I need some creative therapy time so I sat down and made this little zip pouch for my little one to keep his change in. 

During times when I am in the car or watching tv late at night, I would do some really simple knitting. I am trying to use up some yarn that I have laying around. This little neck wrap is made using one ball of Lion Brand Fun Fur and one ball of Red Heart soft yarn. I am going to buy a pretty pin to use it as a closure when I wear it. I had some extra yarn leftover so I made a small baby beanie with a flower to go with it and gave it away before I  took a picture of it.

Would you like to join me each week for some creative therapy? Link up and show us what you've created. I will create a post on Thursday each week for you to link up. This week I am a day late but that's ok. It'll be fun to see what you've all created. Please grab my button and place on your sidebar or in your post when you link up.

It's been rough lately and I would like to thank you all for your kind words, prayers and encouragement. It's time for me to pick myself up and keep going. Along that line, here's a picture I took over Christmas and included these words to help me each day. You are more than welcome to print or save these for your personal use.

These are when we went to see family, just throwing in for inspiration.

Stay tuned tomorrow. I have some great deals you won't want to miss!
