Baby Gift

A friend of mine is having a baby and she is simply glowing full of sunshine!

I’ve been working on a few things for her; however, teaching interrupts the best of intentions!  She stated the baby’s theme will be Cinderella!  I found this adorable cross stitch quote from this Etsy shop.  I paired with white Aida fabric and turned into a cute 12″ X 12″ envelope pillow, complete with Cinderella themed fabric from fabric.com.



However I had first made a pit stop at Michaels arts and craft store and saw these bibs that appear to be “princess” themed and completed these quickly over the December holiday break.  The brand for these are both Dimensions.  All together I hope she likes her gift which will be mailed tomorrow!

Baseball Table Runner

Every summer you can usually find me and usually my husband hanging out at the FM RedHawks baseball field!  There’s just something so relaxing watching baseball on a hot summer day!  Well there is a gentleman who I had met working my part time job many years ago and we became pretty close.  Every year he gives us oodles of tickets to the RedHawks games. Now this guy is very well off and never wants anything in return.  Last year I gave home some of our homemade salsa and jelly.  This year I made him a baseball themed table runner.  As a bachelor, I really hope he likes it! 


I found the fabric and pattern at this really cute fabric store in Devils Lake, ND this past September.   


I didn’t realize how wide this was going to turn out until I started piecing it together and thought it looked odd.  With some minor tweaking I made it to more my liking/size.  I used the invisible thread again as well as the basting spray when layering, just love it!  I hope Mike does too!!

A little gift…

I have an odd situation for my job.  My “home” campus is 4 hours directly north and I am located at a different college.  It’s crazy how one gets used to phone and email for communication and not actually walking down to ones office for questions.  I have incredible students and I wouldn’t change my “situation” for anything in the world.  But there is someone very special at the “home” campus who continuously answers any and all crazy questions I can come up with.  I wanted to do something special for her.  I also realized I had ordered 5 hand-sanitizers from Bath and Body Works…apparently I wanted to REALLY get prepared for cold/flu season on campus, haha!

Quoteable Pillows

Joey asked me recently as I was down stairs putting my latest project together, “Harm, haven’t you made enough pillows?”  I looked at him bewildered and said, “Ha, you can never have enough pillows!”  It’s still freezing in No. Dak. lately and there isn’t anything we can do outside yet.  We can’t mow the lawn, can’t plant, can’t weed, can’t play in the sun…we are limited to the indoors still.  So of course, I keep not only a clean house, but have to do something while hanging around so my go-to is always cross-stitching.

First Quilt!

My best-friend since elementary school had a birthday coming up in February…the 20th to be exact.  When you’re friends this long it starts to become difficult to find the perfect gift and I personally much prefer homemade gifts.
