Check out this super cute quilted box I made for my mom for Mother’s Day. I love it so much I think I see one of these for myself in the near future. Look for a tutorial soon.

So my daughter tells this morning that she needs a T-shirt for tonight's Thriller number. So here is what I whipped up. I used fabric paint to add the splatters. I created this cute shredded back and thread painted the portrait of Michael Jackson.

No birthday around our house would be complete without something crafty. I wondered how these party decorations would go over with a group of 15 year old girls. My daughter made her own cake . . . (granted I was right by her side.)
I made these balloon flowers by twisting 5 balloons together and attaching one smaller one to the center. Good thing I took a photo before the party because they all walked out the door before the day was through.
I made this candy cake with an angel food cake pan and small mixing bowl. I covered the pan and bowl with birthday wrapping paper, stacked them on top of each other and used clear tape to hold them together. Then I hot glued the candy to the structure. It didn’t take them long to pick it clean!

Every morning I sit at the end of the couch in my living room, drink coffee and write. There is a lovely view of my back yard. And thanks to my husband’s diligence, there is an amble supply of bird seed that attracts a wide array of animal life right to my windowsill. This art quilt is inspired by the fat mourning doves that make the tree branches bow under their weight. The dove was rendered completely by thread painting and I did a considerable amount of hand beading to add texture to the snow laden branch. As much as I love this little piece, I’m ready for the wintery theme to be behind me.
