1st Birthday Photo Album

My good friend Julie's son turns one tomorrow. They had a party for him this weekend. Along with a book and a sweatshirt from our Alma Mater, I made this album as a gift for the family. I took 12 of my favorite photos that Julie sent over the last year, converted them to black and white and printed them. I then window matted and mounted them into the pages of the book. It turned out well. I found some pretty cool fabrics in fat quarters at the fabric store and used a blue accent ribbon for the cover.

Socks & Dolls

Hello! I have quite a few projects in the works and in my head :) Below are pictures of my first pair of socks (they are tube socks though, so I haven't yet tackled the heel in a pair of socks) and a doll that I made. I am planning to make a handful of these dolls to give as Christmas gifts to my nieces and friends daughters. They're really easy and are a great use of my enormous collection of scrap fabrics. Anyhow . . . more to come, enjoy!

First sock finished! Yay! From "First Time Tube Socks" pattern HERE
