Baby Quilt

Hi.  This is a quilt I made for a new mother, Amy, at work.  She was having a boy so I chose green, blue and yellow to make her quilt.  I sort of chose 'Trip Around the World' as my pattern and decided to quilt X's through the blocks.  I think it turned out well.  I had learned a new way to attach the binding from my mother's friend Mary-Ellen so I tried it on this quilt.  Wow!!  It made it so much easier when joining the beginning and end.  You can't even tell.  You would think it was just where I joined the binding strips together as I was sewing them together.  I really love making quilts.  I'm making a log cabin right now for my daughter who is getting married this fall.  Hopefully sometime soon I'll be able to show you it as well.

Have a great day,

Hi.  How excited are you about the new catalogue??  I just received mine and I'm thrilled.  So many new sets I want.  Or is that need???  LOL.  Oh my gracious.  I know we've said before that they've outdone themselves at Stampin' UP! but this time it's true.  Gorgeous new in-colors as well as beautiful new dsp.  Effective July 1 customers can order from the new catalogue.  If you would like to have one just send me an email and let me know.  Let me just say 'you are sooooo going to want one'.

Today, I decided to make a card based on a card I saw in the new catalogue.  Mine is below and I'll let you guess where I took the idea from once you are able to see the new Idea Book & Catalogue.

Hope you have a wonderful day. 
 Hugs, Cathy

Too long away!!

Hi.  Well I'm back.  I've been neglecting this blog.  But here I have a birthday card I've made for my Son, Andrew, who turns 24 on Wednesday.  I can't believe it!!  Time really does fly.  It seems just yesterday he was running around the neighbourhood like lightning.  He never stopped until bedtime.  Now he's grown and moved out on his own.  But I don't feel old. LOL!!  

I used ' The Open Sea' for this card.  Love that stamp set!!  It is great for all different applications from cards to scrapbooking to travel logs.  It was a must have in my books.

Hope you enjoy!
