She told me she wanted to make a busy book from the time she knew she was pregnant because her grandmother had made one for her when she was a little girl.
She shared the book with me and it's so precious, I just had to share. This is a counting book, and it's all totally hand stitched. The pieces can either be inserted into the objects on the page, or there is velcro where the objects can be stuck on.

I wish I had more pictures, but these few photos were taken from my iphone because a cooler was accidentally dumped on my camera, and it went on strike. This means....I'll need to go back!
From Dallas, this was about a four out trip...if you don't stop at all the litttle antique stores in the little towns between here and there....and we did. We also hit up Sweetwater, another town my Granddad called home. I was able to find the addresses where he lived here and in Abilene, and we swung by the houses he called home once upon a childhood.

I'm currently in a holding pattern. I've been collecting some fun things to put together my dream craft room. But...my brother is currently residing in said room. I was going to try to up my youtube game this year, but....there really isn't a great place to record. BUT here is a video I did....you'll see my issues....I ran out of storage room, I ran out of glue, and my dog saw her shadow or something and decided to express her feelings mid video. BUT...I told a gal I'd teach her how to make a bow, but...it's been a little chaotic, so I recorded her a video for now and provided some supplies so I'm almost teaching her...and when we finally do get to get together for bow lessons....she'll be ready for Bow 102. So...if you want to see a few ways to make some (almost) free bows. You can find that video here.
I also refer to a bow pattern I have online (free). That lives here.
