New hobby for me this year. These are yard shadow art made from 1/2 and 3/4" plywood and painted black. Its really a lot of fun to do and sell quite well also. Enjoy !
I am a cancer survivor and my friends are "My Angels". When one lost her dear sister to breast cancer and another lost her son, I made them angels to watch over them and keep them safe. I was so moved by the joy the angels gave to my friends, I could not wait to make more and have been making them ever since. This one is 18” tall and trimmed with silver metallic thread.
I made this Barbie wedding dress for one of my granddaughters and am sure she will treasure it for years to come. All the flowers including the headband are crocheted as well as the dress, lace and the form that holds her upright. I pray I am still around to see it on the bridal table at her wedding one day. Long way to go, she is just six!

This is a pleated, drop waist skirt I made for my daughter out of quilt strips called a jelly roll. With just about every color in the rainbow on it you can wear any top you like! My little redhead prefers pink and this skirt is the first thing she wears after laundry day. :)
This is a blue and light green brocade diaper bag made for a friend. It has two outer pockets, and three inner. The large flap shown reveals a changing pad that can be rolled out or even detached. I couldn't believe how striking the bag was when finished! Pondered keeping this one for myself!
