August update

As hot as it has been and with all the fun family things going on- I have still managed to spend some time in my craft room!  While the family was here we had a craft day where we showed how to make no sewing quilted ornament balls!  That was really a lot of fun!  I used the same fold to make this Angel.  Well, the body of the Angel anyway- the head is the Kimikomi technique.  Check out this video on how to do Kimikomi-

I made just a few boo boos on the head.  But I am hoping to get better at it with practice!

I made this Christmas ornament using more basic Christmas colors.  On a previous post, I showed other balls I made with more country colors.   I am loving these things!

I have also been making cards using Spellbinder's die by Becca Feeken.  I love these guys!  The "Bundle of Joy" die is an add on but it works perfectly for Baby cards!

I used Vellum on the back of the Boy card so I could use a little light behind the card.  If you are displaying this card it really pops with the light behind it. 

Sorry for the long post but I wanted to end with some pictures of our weekend trip to Stockholm, Maine.  We traveled to my husband's home town to go to his brother and his wife's 50th wedding anniversary.  We really enjoyed the trip!  Just a few pictures of the sights around the lake where we stayed!

The sunflowers were a HUGE field of flowers that we saw in Westfield, outside Presque Isle.  They were awesome! 

Summer is flying by!!  I am getting together with Sister's this week to make no sew Pine Cone Ornaments!!  Can't wait!
