Horseshoe Donation

I managed to find some time this week to finish this quilt for my Dad. I donate every year to help raise money for his Horseshoe club. I also send him some table runners and mats for prizes. The girls that play really like those. Rene

Free Pattern

I had so much fun designing and making the table runner for Christina that I just had to share it. Unfortunatly I can not post so if you wish to have this pattern I will gladly email it to you.
Please email me at crazyquilter@rogers.com.
Hopefully in the next couple of days I can figure out how to post it so it is more convenient to you.

Have fun with it.

Christina's Last Day!

Today was Christina's last day. She will be missed. She is a very special person. So full of sunshine and lollipops. My first day at work she called me Cupcake. That has always stuck with me. So with her on her way to bigger and better things, I couldn't let her go without giving her something to remember us with.
I designed this table runner just for her. It is done in purples and reds with some gold accents. It is bright and cheery just like her.

All the best Christina. We will all miss you very much!!

Sad to See You Go!

We meet alot of people in our lives. Some just come and go and some really touch our lives.
As some of you know I work part-time. While there I have gotten to know some really great girls. One of them is Christina. She is the most bubbly, energetic and nicest person I have ever met. She has taught me many things. When she enters a room you can not help but smile. She just does that to you.
Sadly she is moving on to another job. I really do understand why she is moving, but it doesn't make the move any easier. I wish her the very best in her new job, but will miss her very much. I wish her nothing but happiness and can't wait to see pics of her with her business suit and briefcase. (She knows what I mean!)
Good Luck Christina!!!

Queen Anne's Lace

While helping my husband work on my truck this weekend, I watched a butterfly land on a piece of Queen Anne's Lace. There was something very striking about it. So being that my brain is always in create mode and my husband was busy looking for a tool, I decided to take a picture for later reference. By the time I got my camera though, the butterfly was gone. So I got my handy journal out and drew a quick picture so I could come up with something later. Of course I still thinking of that butterfly as we finished up with my truck and once supper was done I headed down to my studio to see what I could come up with. Than I remembered a technique I learned at the Creative Needle Festival this spring. I have been wanting to try it and this was perfect. The yarn in the flowers gives it a 3D effect which I love, and the butterflies were added on to add to the effect. It always amazes me what you can do with some scraps and some imagination. - Rene
