Working on selective coloring--my daughter Bel wearing one of my bows and being a great model :)

Covered Button Pony Tail Holders & Snap Clips for a customer!

A stacked bow I made for my neice, Olivia

I made a woven headband for my daughter to match one of her tops

My friends daughter modeling it for me since my girls do not have enough hair :)

Quilt-a-long week 2 w/ my sashing---I'm choosing to go w/ blue, something different

So many different projects going on at the same, which is good for me in order to keep motivated and complete orders, above are some completed bows that I made for my neice and some of my friends daughter and me messing with selective coloring--I love the black and white photos and having a pop of color here and there!

I've also been keeping up w/ the quilt along--still working on my nine patch Amanda Jean!
I've decided it will not be a twin size, but rather a crib or lap--I don't think I have the strength to make a twin on top of several other quilts and crib set orders that I need to complete. Off to post the photo in my flickr group!

Quilt Along, Week one patches finished

Here they are, I've completed my first 7 blocks for the quilt-a-long w/ Amanda Jean of CrazyMomQuilts. My goal is to use up a lot of my vintage scraps that I have laying around. I wish I decided to use my designer fabrics that are more current and more modern, but I need to get rid of a lot of my vintage here they are, not my favorites, but it's just the beginning and maybe once I add my sashing and complete several more patches, it will start to look better. HOPEFULLY.

Korkers and clippies and boutique bows, OH MY!

I'm hooked! I wanted to make only a couple of clippies, but I just couldn't stop at 2. I stayed up until 3am making some really cute bows that I'm proud of and making quite a mess--who knew this little craft could be so messy, addicting, and frustrating, but so worth it at the same time?!
So I thought I would share the bows that I ended up making :)

My latest korker bow that I made to match a couple of Bel's dresses

A photo of my very first korkers...I've come a loooong way, almost to embarrasing to show these

Mini-clippies for both girls in solid colors for playdates--super no-slip!

This is my twisted, stacked boutique bow that is waaaaay to big to placed on either one of my girls hair, but I know the perfects little girl with TONS of hair to model this bow for me :)

So, that's it for now, I'll have to take photos of these bow and clips in action! Hope you liked my bows!
