Paper Crafts and Stitchery

Steve and I are in the process of getting our Passports so we can go to Canada this Spring for our Vacation. We are going to drive, which will take us through Oregon, Washington and then into Canada. We don't live in Southern CA so that will save us about 8 hours of driving. We are bringing our dogs and I found a few places in Canada that will take pets for our stay. Awesome! the only bad thing is we are leaving on Good Friday and will be in Canada on Easter. I will miss my family for Easter but we will get together when we get back. I will do the gathering for my birthday which is the 9th, that way I will be sure to get gifts....ha...ha...ha. We will see lighthouses and I will photograph them. There will be quite a few. I wont' be able to see them all though on this trip. 

Another Potpourri Post really about Paper Crafts & Embroidery.

I made this cute birthday card for my  brother just this morning, it was his birthday yesterday and I am going to stop at his shop today and give him the card and a little gift. He loves Starbucks so a gift card to there with chocolate candy he likes is what I got him.

I made several owl pillow boxes aren't they so cute? The pillow box die is from Die-Namics and the owl is from Savvy Dies

I just love these two owls, so cute..................

The owl above is the first one I made.... not my favorite but cute in a way. It says Happy Valentines day, but I decided the ones with the other owls are super cute and I will go with those.

I hear my real owl in the oak tree hooting right now! yes it's mine. LOL!

I made this embroidery stitchery while trying to figure out what I want to do for the last floral panel to make a quilt. I need four panels and I have three.

I don't think I can find anything that knocks my socks off, so I will just go with one that is going to be rated as a 7, that will have to do I guess. I will get started on the last floral panel  this weekend. Then the next week hopefully the quilt!

Have a wonderful Friday and Happy Weekend!

  1. Love the diecut sentiment and the paper is perfect with your sailboat, like your owls decorating the boxes. Can't wait to see your quilt done!

  2. Yikes your blog typeface is sooo tiny! Where do you plan to visit in Canada? We did that trip when the kids were younger. Went thru Oregon, Washington and stayed in Vancouver. Then we took the ferry across to Victoria where we camped (in our VW camper) on the beach and visited Buchardt Gardens. It was a fun trip! (((Hugz)))


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
