Talking about crafts, and sewing, and quilting,
and about my determination
to make and/or learn a new or pretty thing every single day,
I've decided a while ago that I needed some angels.
While growing up (both in Africa and Europe in the between)
my mother always had a guardian angel picture hung on the kid's room
and I really liked my guardian angel.
And so much later in life now
I've decided that we both needed that guardian angel back
(and I mean my husband and I)
and so I started making and collecting angels.
These are just some of the wall hangings with angels I made.
I'll come back to this subject probably later on, with some more pics and some other works.
Another of my favorite things are baskets.
A couple days ago I was just surfing some crafts blogs and found some really neat tutorial and how-to tips to machine sew fabric baskets or bowls from http://freebiesforcrafters.blogspot.com/.
I had made some baskets before but I stitched everything by hand.
These are so much easier and fun to make!
Thank you Linda Permann for sharing!
So ... like always ... I just had to make some!
Made a couple for my sewing needs (notions, treads and scraps),
another one to store my rings
and a couple more for whatever is just lying around and needs a place to be stored away!
I've been fighting the blog for a while now, trying to place my pics where I want them but somehow it always places them on the top of the page!
I know, such a newbie around these things...
Oh well... gotta ask for help,
probably my son or daughter-in-law
(by the away, did I mentioned Rochelle is my daughter-in-law? (yeah, the same Rochelle from http://acquiredflavor.blogspot.com/; check her blog out, she has some fabulous recipes!).
Before I go,
just a few special words to my sister and brothers
(my devoted followers)
Beijinhos para vocês!
and a BIG hug to my friend Irene
(mando notícias em breve, beijinho grande para ti).
