Great-Nephew's birth announcement
Over the years, I've found different projects to get into.
Thomas is my niece, LeAnne's, son. (Anne's mom is my sister, Jody.) He's nearly four and a smart little man. I designed the cross-stitch announcement. My husband, Dave, sculpted the sun and helped me complete the 3-D scene with railroad tracks and trees.
Handmade wedding albums are my favorite wedding gift. I try to match the colors to the bridesmaids' colors.
I've been making baby quilts as long as I can remember.
Some projects are even edible. For my brother's daughter, Audrey, I once made a Rice Krispie treat "pepperoni" pizza for her birthday. I used a hairspray cap (don't worry, I cleaned it first!) to cut out round pieces of strawberry Roll-Ups.
I also enjoy knitting. For the past two years, I've met with a group at church. The first project we did as a group was make baby caps to send to third-world countries. Babies there have a high mortality rate and one of the reasons is they lose a lot of body heat when they're first born. It's nice to think something I knitted could save a little one's life.
