Crafting Time

 
Hello dear friends
 
I am popping out of my craft room today to share a tag I recently created.
I started off with a #8 tag inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Then layered a big lace doily that I found in the baking section at the craft store. Next was my favorite part! Layering the patterned paper and embellishments.
 
 
Both the paper and embellies come from the same collection. Family Stories by Teresa Collins.
My new addiction this year seems to be for enamel dots. I can't seem to finish off any project without adding at least a few of these little bright colored dots to my projects. I also used a sketch to start off this tag by Scrapbook Generation. You can find a variety of sketches and all the latest pretty paper lines at scrapbookgeneration.com
 
Now it's back to work for me! Working on some fun projects for next month's issue of Create magazine!

Neutral Afghan

Hello ladies!
Another afghan has rolled off my
trusty crochet hook!
 

As far as the color scheme, this one
is quite a departure for me!
 

 
It was made for a male, so my usual
palette would not have been appropriate.

 
 
I really do like the rich colors though!
 
 
Tuesday I had the pleasure of taking
a scenic drive through northern Arkansas.
Finding this church in the Boxley Valley was
one of my destinations.  It was so lovely.
 
Have a beautiful day!
Twyla

Yarn Love

Hello sweet friends!
 
My little dog, Barney, is just as
crazy about yarn as I am!
 

I am always taking pictures of him with
my yarn because he looks so adorable!
 

 
To him, a skein of yarn is a pillow. 
 

 
He's my sweet little buddy!
It was a cold winter so I let his fur grow.
Soon he will be going to the groomer!
 

Happy April!
I hope you all are having
a wonderful week!
Love, Twyla

also have loved you, abide in
My love." - John 15:9

Barn Charm

 
 
 
Hello sweet ladies!
I'm so glad sring is here, I just wish
it felt more like it!
 
I managed to photograph a barn
or two this winter, but I prefer to when
the trees are pretty!
 
 

 
I think these capture the coldness
of winter.  It's the same barn from
different angles in Newton County, MO.

 
Have a most wonderful day!
Love, Twyla

New Issue of Create Magazine!!!!

 
 
 
Hello dear friends!
The third issue of Create magazine that I am so thrilled to design for is ready to view and download. This free magazine has over 200 pages of papercrafting awesomeness.
 
Here is a look of one of the projects I contributed to this issue-
 

 
The magazine focuses on sketches -- providing four free layout, card, and tag sketches designed by Allison Davis and Debbie Sanders each month -- but there is so much more!
 
CREATE features a different manufacturer's design team every month. For February, the Teresa Collins design team has created lovely layouts, cards, and tags using the SG sketches.
 
Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Afghan Obsession!

 
 
Hello dear friends!
 
It seems that I have an obsession.
I just can't stop making blankets!
We have blankets coming out our
ears, I tell ya!
 
 
This is my latest!
I wanted to do something really
different from what I usually do.
 
 
I have a love of gingham and decided
to try my hand at a gingham pattern.
There are many different patterns on the
internet, but I decided to make up my
own very easy version.
 
 
I crocheted it in rows and then sewed the
rows together.  It worked up really quick!
I used the half double crochet stitch throughout
because it gives it a nice weight.
 
 
The idea I had from the beginning was
that I wanted a shocking border color. 
Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn's
'Hot Rose' color was just what I wanted!
 
 
I just love the gingham effect it has!
I absolutely love playing with yarn and
experimenting with color!
I'm already wondering what to start
on next!
 
 
There's been a lot of sitting around this winter
and too many cookies, ahhh, the cookies . . .
I need to get back to my walking and hopefully
will be able to soon!
 
Have a wonderful week!
 
Twyla
 
'Yes, I have loved you with an
everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness
I have drawn you.'

Cross Stitched Sampler Reveal

 
Hello dear friends!
 
Thank you so much for all your kind comments
on the afghan I showed in my last post!
 
I wanted to show you another gift that kept me
very busy during those cold December days!  I cross
  stitched this sampler for my son's Christmas present. 
It is not really framed yet.  We are looking
for an antique frame that will fit it.
 
 
It was an old pattern that looked like one I
could get done and still look impressive!
I changed it just a bit so I could personalize
it for him.
 
 
I really enjoy cross stich and hope to do more.
I have several patterns picked out, but oh, there
are so many things I want to make!
Where's the time?!
 
 
I found this pretty blue McCoy vase in an antique
store this week.  I love McCoy!
 
The photo below is just another
little corner of my home. 
 
 
We are supposed to get another winter
storm this weekend.  I know many of you
are dealing with the same.  Stay warm
and stay safe!
 
"The Lord is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.
- Nahum 1:7
 
Have a nice weekend!
 
Love, Twyla
