I'm dusting off the cobwebs in my Phoca Gallery here in The Quilted Story Studio and updating all the cute projects I have made over the last few days, weeks, months...and eeeek...YEARS!  These are the ones that I made "in-between" all the Big Quilts, Major Projects and the Wallets...

Have I mentioned the Wallets?  Yeah...I have a little Etsy Shop too!

Note to self...when I ask again in a couple of weeks "where does the time go"...try to remember about the Wallets you are making!  I love to make them...but they do take time...

YES...more than a minute or two!

Well here I am with these two little adorable Baby Pillows I made for a couple NEW arrivals...two little PINK bundles of Joy!  Little Addie is the most adorable little pumpkin with the biggest eyes...she just makes you smile! She joins her BIG Brother Benji.

The Pillow to the left here was made for Little Leah...she joins her two older sisters Ella and Sarah and is as cute as a button!  I simply love these pretty fabrics...

Addie's was made using a contemporary all over print as her nursery was more modern and the parents tell me it fit perfectly!  I just love the way her name "popped" off the background fabric in a bright teal!

Leah's was made using an adorable print I picked up a while ago and it just screams "little girl"...these little frogs are even cuter in person!  I did her name in a Hot Pink Dot fabric by Moda...called Dot Essentials.


I have almost every color way in Moda's Dot Essentials...

Get Real...Who doesn't?

Excuse my tardiness...but I simply could not move on to 2014 and all the projects going on here at The Quilted Story Studio without showing off my Handmade Christmas Cards for 2013!

So...please bear with me and let's back up a bit!

I just LOVE these bright and sparkly little Christmas Cards...they turned out adorable and I made them with my own little hands.

And...my big THUMBS!

I must confess though...if you are thinking..."how did you get all those done with the craziness of the Holiday, plus your Etsy Shop"...

Fear Not...I made these little beauties back in March of 2013 with the anticipation of the crazies here in South Carolina.  I am soooo glad I did!  The first one took me all day to figure out, but then I just wrote down a few notes, cut everything out and sat and put them all together in one whole day. Not to shabby for two days work...hmm?

Lookey Me...accomplishment in 2013!

Good Grief People...it's 2014 and I haven't written a blog post in about two months!  Just where does the time go...I felt so organized in October...but then the days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into almost two months.  Geesh!

This framed poster is hung right above my beloved Ruby Jane and I see daily as I sit at my Machine, sewing away the hours.

I wanted to share this little bit about "ME"...just like the infamous Norman Rockwell's Art piece, I believe that "Every Job is a Self Portrait of the Person who Did it".  One might think that he is saying that your work must be perfect...not quite...really.

I believe that he was saying that one should take pride in the work they do...remembering that when we do "our personal best" we show just how important that particular task is to us.

Let's face it...what might be important to me isn't necessarily the same thing to you and vice versa.  That's OK...whatever yours is to you just bring it to the table.

With that said I hope that 2014 allows me to be a healthy person, a better blogger, and a  more helpful, productive and positive human being.  How about you?

Now...let's get on with it...

Nothing says Happy Thanksgiving better than this adorable Appliqued Towel I made several years ago...just because I could!  Lol!   However...I am hoping my "Tom the Turkey" does not look like this little guy when I unwrap him from the package tomorrow morning!

Now...get your Happy face on and give Thanks for your many blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving ALL!

With Thanksgiving fast approaching I thought I best get my Basket full of Fall Mini Pillows uploaded for you all to see before I pack them away to make room for all my Christmas Decorations!  I Love Love Love these adorable little pillows...they make me smile!

The Basket is simply PERFECT to hold these little pillows...I purchased it several years back at our local Hobby Lobby (aka...my little home away from home). This basket is fairly large and since I didn't have 700 of these little gems to fill it up just right...I crunched up some plain brown paper and made a "fake bottom".  This way all my cute pillows sit "on top" and stick out a bit...and it gives an appearance that the basket is overflowing with mini pillows....when in reality it is NOT!

I'm clever that way!
