Please let me know if you were able to download these or if you experienced any problems. (Amdended April 11, 2010)

Have a great night!


Fleece critters

I have been working on making cute animals made out of fleece the past few days. While I love to quilt I have never worked with sewing patterns and such. So this has been a bit of a challenge for me. The first critter I made was Pablo the Polar Bear. I definitely made some mistakes on this one but that's ok, I learned from them :O)! The second critter I made was Olivia the Octopus with her cool hat! This one came out much better and I have the hang of the patterns now. Please leave me a note and let me know what you think.

Some quilts

Just a couple of pictures of some quilts I have made.

My 3D flowers to remind me of spring

I love love love the 3D Flower sets from SVG Cuts. I made this 12x24 wall hanging for my craft room to remind me of my flower beds during the dreary winter months of the high desert.

My Fairy Wall

I found these tiny fairy kites at Wal-Mart the other day (for a buck!) and had to buy them. I have been wanting to do something in my craft room with fairies but really the only thing I could find (and already own) for fairies are the ones on the Tinkerbell and Friends cartridge for the Cricut. When I found these little kites I knew that I could use them in my fairyland for my craft room. Of course when I took the pictures only one of the fairies was facing the correct way at a time. The fairies are hanging from the ceiling. Now this is the very beginning of my fairy wall, I am sure there will be more added over time. I used the Tinkerbell & Friends cart for the solo tree and mushrooms, My World cart for the other trees and the Walk in My Garden for the ferns. The flowers are from SVG Cuts 3D Flowers (bachelor buttons).

Joining the world of Blogging :)

The more I have been playing with my Cricut and Make-The-Cut software the more I want to show off some of my work to friends and family that don't get a chance to see it all. I will try to keep things up dated on here as much as possible. Raising my two and a half year old grandson takes up a lot of my time but I still try to find time to craft and play on the computer! I'll be posting pictures of some of my creations and will point you in the direction of contests or cool sites that I have found for those of you that are crafters like me.
