Wow it has been awhile since I posted here! I guess I'm a bit rusty at this blogging thing. Well here's to hoping I can stay updated.

I finished my daisy afghan and entered it in the county fair and won 1st place in the afghan section, Champion over all crocheted items, and Sweepstakes over all sewing items! Emma loves her afghan and I'm glad she gave it up for me to enter in the fair.

Well my hands have been giving me trouble when I crochet. So, I've quit crocheting and taken up quilting. I may try crocheting again at a later date. I've turned into a true quilter! I have 3 quilts in progress and not a one finished! LOL The quilter's guild here has been a big help in teaching me. I've taken 2 classes with them and have finished 2 quilt tops, now to get them quilted. My last class was the Lone Star quilt and I've gotten 3 points of my star finished. I really enjoy quilting, but have a hard time finding the time to work on my quilts with work and all the kids activities. Oh well my goal is to have one of my quilts finished by Christmas along with a baby quilt to donate to a local organization.

I'm also working on some clay items for Christmas. On my day off last week Emma & I made dough ornaments for her day care class. We got them shaped and baked, but still need to paint them. I have never made dough ornaments and were really pleased with the results. As soon as they are painted I will post a picture.

I will try my best to keep this blog updated with all my crafty projects. I have a bunch in my head, now I need to let them out.
