Fairy Tales Receiving Blanket

This is a receiving blanket that is available for sale for $15. It is made with a double thickness of lightweight cotton, edge-stitched in green with a cute vine pattern. The dimensions of this blanket are 31.5" x 37".

The characters include Little Red Riding Hood, Little Miss Muffet, the Gingerbread Man, etc.

I'm currently working on a baby quilt made with the same fabric. Buy the set and give it as a gift!


I made this twin size quilt for my oldest son a few years ago. It is foundation pieced on a big piece of muslin and then machine quilted in the ditch.

The dimensions of this quilt are 69" x 83".

New Purse

I just made this purse today for a friend and I have another one just like it available.

Here is a close up of the personalization I added. If you want a name on yours, then the total cost would be $20 instead of the regular $18.

This is a shot of the inside of the bag so you can get an idea of how big the pocket is.

Bees and Dots

This quilt was made for the daughter of a good friend and yes, I was pregnant when I made it. The purple fabric has brightly colored polka dots and the blue fabric has cute bees and flowers. The back of this quilt is a marbled medium purple and the dimensions are 39"x50".

I currently have two similar quilts in the works; one has a bright yellow instead of pink and the other uses the green fabric instead of pink. Both use the same green, blue and purple nine patch and have the marbled purple flannel on the back. I will post pictures of these quilts as they become available.

Blue and Yellow

I made this quilt while I was pregnant with my son Jack (surprise, surprise). I got the idea from seeing the two fabrics next to each other on the shelf at the store. I thought they looked great and deserved to be showed off!

The back of this quilt is a marbled yellow flannel, the same shade as the yellow on the front.

The dimensions of this quilt are approximately 46"x62" and it is available for purchase for $55. It is currently available for your viewing pleasure at Lucky's Grill. Did I mention that the burgers there are great?


I made this quilt for my son Adam while I was pregnant with him. (Hmmm. I'm beginning to see a pattern.) I also made nearly identical quilts for two of my girlfriends' babies.

The dimensions of this quilt are 32"x48", which make it a little small for a baby quilt but length and width could be easily added. I used a primary-color-polka-dot flannel for the back of this one.

Jack's Trucks

I got the idea for this quilt while I was pregnant with my son Jack. My youngest son (at that time) was fascinated by all things with wheels. I wanted to try out paper piecing and just happened to have a paper piecing book with these patterns in it. I should have made the quilt for the son who loves trucks, but he already had lots of quilts and a pregnant mommy needs to make something for the baby in her tummy, right?

I originally planned to use big buttons as the wheels for these trucks, (very securely fastened buttons) but in the end decided to paint them on. I think that the painted wheels turned out nicely.

The "Jack's Trucks" inscription was hand embroidered, but now I have a fancy machine that will do that for me.

This quilt measures 39"x47". I would be willing to make another, but because of the time needed to piece each individual block, I would need to charge $150-$200 to make it worth my time.

Super Cute Purses!!!

I first made one of these purses for my niece and I was soon getting requests to make more. They are machine washable/dryable and most of them come with a pocket on the inside. The following four purses are currently available at Lucky's Grill in American Falls, which is very convenient if you need to buy a purse and you've got a craving for a great burger. Mmmm....

Each purse is $18.

As is the same with all of my projects, more purses are currently under construction. : )
