recent projects

I've had fun the last few weeks working on some projects...I thought I'd share.

My friend Kayla is having a little boy any day now.  She had a shower the beginning of February and I gave her this quilt....I love how it turned out.

She asked me if I'd help her make a car seat canopy for her baby too.  I had never made one before but was excited about trying....this is how it turned out...
 She picked such cute fabric and it was so easy to make. 
I'm glad I know how to make these now.

And these are a few recent decorations I have made...
LOVE letters and the block says "is all you need"

This is a wooden board that I painted and put vinyl letters on...and the heart is attached with bakers twine.  I know it's cheesy, but I still like it.  My brother Mike makes fun of me when I make things like this and tells me he hopes he marries a girl that makes a lot of crap like I do...ha ha..cracks me up!

A menu board.  I had started a different one awhile back and never finished it.  It was turning into being too complicated, so I started over and kept it simple this time.

 A family birthday board....I have seen these before and thought there were cute.  And an easy way to remember everyone in your family's birthday.  I haven't finished it yet, just need to add everyone's name to a circle (or heart for anniversary) and hang it up.
