I like seeing your posts from your quilt journal. I am so unorganized - sometimes I don't even have pictures let alone know the date I made something or the person it was made for!

That is adorable and purple, no less. One of my fav colors and the official FAB group color.

It is fun doing crafty stuff like that. DJ said I am branching out but he doesn't remember when I did not just quilt---and I did make curtains and all sorts of things at one time.

Thanks, Katie - I'm glad you like my quilt journal posts - ;)) I don't have photos of some of my earlier stuff and am guessing on some of the dates - but once I started trying to keep a scrapbook - it was kind of fun to add notes - photos - sometimes even a ribbon - and to share them with friends and family. Now my scrapbook notes are on my blog - the photos are digital - and it's fun sharing them with my bloggy buddies - ;))

Thanks, Linda - who doesn't love a PURPLE dinosaur??!! - ;))

I used to do more crafty stuff when the kids/grandkids were little - and made clothes for our daughter way back when - but not so much any more. I even made curtains for our house from sheets and pleater-tape because it was more cost effective at the time - but that's not something that I would ever want to tackle again. Now I pretty much stick to quilting - and don't remember the last zipper that I put in anything - haha - ;))
