I saw so many chevron quilt on Pinterest recently and I coud't wait for a chance of making one. So I had a baby shower last weekend to attend. I knew about this shower months ago but as usual I waited until Wednesday to start this project. "I baby quilt made in 2 days is not to difficult to accomplish" that's what I was keep telling myself. I thin k this time I got lucky because this project took really only two days and $20.00 in material.

I spent the last month working on the girls bedroom. I made new quilts and duvet cover and pom poms. I still have to make some pillows but I am ready to show some pictures of Sophia's bedroom.
I got the duvet at target and I used a set of full size sheet sewn together as a duvet cover. I probably cost me $45.00 not bad. The quilt was not as economic but I love Sarah Jane fabric"children at play" and it took me a month to make her and her sister quilt.
Than I wanted to use all the pompom I had in the garage from open house party and birthday party (if you ever made paper pompom you know that is difficult to get rid of them, they are so cute and full and girly). I put together some tissue paper pompom and paper lantern in different level and had to beg my husband to hang it on the wall. I even mentioned to him that I would love to have one in our bedroom to but the answer was no( you never know he might change his mind....)

Making quilts is a passion I found long time ago. I remember a magazine I found at the local store in Italy where there were example of a log cabin quilts. We do not have quilt like these in Italy so I was fascinating with the images of this beautiful blue log cabin quilt. I was eighteen at that time but I wanted to make my own, so I started to collect the fabrics and started what was going to began one of my passions. These are few of them I made this month.

Making headband is one of my passion and fortunately my girls like them too. I experimented for awhile until I got to the finish product with different material, shape and headbands. This is what I come up with. Headband are very easy accessories you can use to change a dress or just feel pretty. I wear them too sometimes they make me feel pretty.

When my sister in law asked for a faux cupcakes for her birthday, I has no idea what they were. But thanks to google I did my research and found out some tutorial and some inspiration(I love google, it is an indispensable tool for learning). The first attempt did not go that well. I followed one of the tutorial but it turned out very heavy and I had to shipped it all the way to California. So I did the process all again with my own adjustment and this is the results. Now I only wish I wrote down my process just in case I will have to make more in the future.

Today I want to share with you pictures of the present I made for my mother in law-Sherry- for Christmas. I got the container at Wall mart, so I altered it using my xyron machine( it works so much better than just glue). And I cut all different pieces of paper and made tags so she can have all the material by hand to make some cards. She loves scrapbook and carmaking and I hope she will be able to use it. I also included an address stamp with her address from SU
