MEMORY BOXES



HERE ARE TWO MORE MEMORY BOXES WITH A FEW THINGS TO GO IN THEM. I MADE A JOURNAL AND SYMPATHY CARD FOR EACH. I BOUGHT SOME CLEAR LABELS AND PUT A CUTE LITTLE SAYING ON IT THAT CANDY ( FROM E. G. F. ) GAVE ME. I PUT THESE ON CANDLE HOLDERS AND PUT A CANDLE IN IT. THERE'S A BAG FOR A LOCK OF HAIR AND A BABY DOLL AND A TEDDY BEAR. I STILL NEED TO GET A CAMERA FOR EACH BOX. I WANT TO MAKE A BEREAVEMENT OUTFIT FOR EACH BOX TO.




I'VE MADE A LOT OF FRIENDS ON THE INTERNET. ONE OF MY NEW FRIENDS BRENDA SUGGESTED I MAKE THREE BOOTIES SO THE PARENTS CAN HAVE ONE. I PLAN ON DOING THAT THIS TIME. THANKS BRENDA.


IT MAY TAKE AWHILE TO GET THE BEREAVEMENT ITEMS MADE. I'M TRYING TO MAKE AN AFGHAN FOR A LOCAL SMALL SCHOOL TO RAFFLE OFF IN OCT DURING THEIR HARVEST FESTIVAL.

HERE IS HARLIE A QUILT. SHE LOVES LITTLE PRINCESS AND SPARKLIE THINGS. THIS QUILT HAS BOTH AND ITS PINK.


TWO FLEECE BLANKETS


WELL HERE ARE TWO FLEECE BLANKETS SIZE 25X36 FOR HUNTSVILLE HOSPITAL.I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WAS THINKING WHEN I GOT THE MATERIAL. I ONLY GOT TWO YARDS. I HAVE SOME LEFT OVER. I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL MAKE A FEW SMALLER BLANKETS OR IF I'LL WAIT UNTIL I HAVE MORE AND MAKE A PIECED QUILT.I DON'T LIKE MACHINE QUILTING THAT WELL BUT IF IT GETS FINISHED THAT'S WHAT COUNTS. IF I HAND QUILT IT I KNOW IT'LL STILL BE THERE THIS TIME NEXT YEAR.

ANOTHER CARD FOR E.G.F. I'VE HAD A HARD TIME FINDING ANGEL PAPER. I WENT INTO THE SISTER SITE OF E.G.F. AND GOT THIS ANGEL TO USE ON THE CARDS. I HOPE THAT WAS ALRIGHT CANDY AND AMY. I NEED TO GO BACK TO THE THREE SISTERS SCRAP BOOKING STORE AND GET MORE CARD STOCK PAPER NOW.

CARDS FOR E.G.F.

THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT MAKING CARDS. THE BRASS CHARMS ARE JUST SITTING ON THERE NOW. I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE WHAT GLUE TO USE ON THEM. THE CARDS LOOK BLUE BUT ARE LILIC.



THE CARD ON THE TOP RIGHT HAND CORNER IS THE ONE THAT DEBRA MADE.





I WENT TO THREE LADIES AND A SCRAPBOOK IN RAINSVILLE AL. I'VE NEVER HAD ANYONE TREAT ME SO NICE. SHE SAT DOWN WITH ME AND MADE A CARD FOR ME TO LET ME SEE HOW IT WAS DONE. THEN SHE PICKED OUT PAPER THAT I WOULD NEED. THAT WAY I LEARNED THE RIGHT PAPER FOR THE CARDS AND THE DECORATIONS ON THE FRONT. THEY ARE DIFFERENT. AFTER ALL HER HELP WHEN I PAYED HER SHE GAVE ME A DISCOUNT BECAUSE I WAS MAKING THEM FOR CHARITY. I NEARLY CRIED. THANK YOU DEBRA. I GOT THE NAME RIGHT THIS TIME. I'M REALLY BAD ON NAMES. WELL ANYTHING FOR THAT MATTER. IT GOES WITH AGE.

EdgeryDoo


THIS CAME IN THE MAIL THURSDAY. THIS IS A THANK YOU PRIZE THAT CANDY FROM E. G. F. GAVE ME. HER DAUGHTER HANNAH DREW MY NAME OUT FIRST. I WANTED ONE OF THESE BUT WAS TO CHEAP TO BUY ONE. I HAVE BEEN BUYING FLEECE SO I WOULD BE READY TO GO TO WORK WHEN IT GOT HERE.
I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW EXCITED I AM. AND TO THINK I WAS GOING TO TELL HER NOT TO PUT MY NAME IN THE POT. I DID WHAT I DID OUT OF LOVE NOT TO WIN SOMETHING. BUT IT CAME TO ME THAT CANDY GAVE OUT THESE PRIZES OUT OF LOVE ALSO. I'M JUST GLAD I NEVER E-MAILED HER. THANKS A LOT CANDY. AS LONG AS I'M ABLE TO CROCHET I'LL THINK OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY EVERY TIME I USE THIS.
