December 30, 2014

Hello! It won't be long and we won't be able to use 2014. Can you believe it? Seems like the last year has flown by so fast. I'm spending a few days relaxing with my youngest DD and her family. I also spent time posting some items that my friend, Nancy, made on etsy. Check them out. When I return home, I'll take better photos. Guess I spend more time creating and less time "staging", lol. Here is a photo of one of the soaps.....

New Partnership

This coming year will be for new beginnings. There are three of us who love to craft, so we are joining together to sell. Dani is from California and loves to do stitcheries; Nancy is from Wisconsin and loves to make bath products; and I'm from Texas and love to quilt and sew. We all do custom orders also. We do have items for sale in two groups in Facebook, Huggins Haven Hand Made Crafts, and Handmade in the USA and SE Texas. We would love for you to visit us.

Another Day!

Someone said it was going to turn cold again, but it hasn't yet. Oh well. that's Texas for you. Today I'm workint in my sewing room; it's a mess! I'm going to reward myself and work on denim tote bags later. I remembered I had started some before I returned to the t-shirt quilt. It's been delivered and customer loved it. Her son is 6' 3", so it's a little big -- about 74" by 92". Hope this photo works.

My latest t-shirt quilt

Hello! Not sure why, but I'm having a hard time blogging, so been doing Facebook. I'm going to try again. Hope it works this time! For the last two years, I've been very busy with my local Senior Center. A few months ago, we had major water damage, so it's been closed. We're lucky that lunches can still be eatten at our Recreation Center, but all other activities are on hold. The remodeling is almost completed; we should be back to normal in January. I've been keeping myself busy with memory/tshirt quilts. I just mailed one today and have one more to finish this week. My DD & I did a local craft show last Saturday. It was a bust for me, but I did pass out cards for the t-shirt quilt. So, maybe I'll have orders next week. Have a great day! Well, my photo didn't show up. Here's a link to etsy and the newest t-shirt quilt. https://www.etsy.com/listing/211091148/raggy-handmade-t-shirt-memory-quilt?

Good Morning!

Good Morning!  It's been a while since I blogged; just been busy quilting and babsitting.  Got to love those grandkids!  I have three orders I'm working on -- a Memory Quilt, a bible tote, and a Market Bag.  I'll post photos when they're completed.
I have been updating a Facebook page.  Hope this link works....  https://www.facebook.com/groups/628790900519949/

Still working at the Senior Center

Hello!  We're still working on projects for the Gift Shop at our Senior Center here in Nedeland Texas.  I finished a quilted placemat & table runner order; will have to wait until camera is working to take photos.  The other Seniors are always coming in to see what we're doing.  I tell them, you never know, lol.  A couple of ladies are doing the old fashioned loom potholders; some of us are making crocheted magic potholders and some are still making crocheted ear warmers.  Here are some photos:

Crocheted Ear Warmers

I've been too busy to post; the ladies at our Senior Center are now making crocheted ear warmers.  We also make flowers to decorate them with.  Or you can add your own pin.  They can be custom ordered with your choice of colors and fit most heads, but can be made smaller or larger at your request.  Wonder what we'll be doing next.......

This is a new year!

Happy New Year!  Seems like 2013 just flew by.  I'm hoping for only good things for 2014.
Our Senior Gift Shop is doing pretty good.  We don't have too many "strangers" walking in, but hopefully our new ad in our local newspaper will bring in people.
Some of the ladies, including myself, are now making crocheted dishcloths and crocheted dishcloth scrubbies.  I've listed some in my etsy shop.  I'm also working on some quilted hot mats to add to the kitchen table.  Also, we will be adding some quilted placemats.  If you live in the Golden Triangle, come visit us.  I can also mail any item, for exact shipping costs.
