    Default Post pictures of your hobby/craft that you're proud of

    I love to x-stitch but I usually only do it in the winter while Dh is planted in front of the TV all day watching football. I usually stick with smaller projects like onesies. They're usually a big hit as gifts. (the baby's last name is Gratzer)


    This next craft won't impress anybody else but me but I thought I'd post it here anyway. I just taught myself to sew and I've made two curtains thus far.

    Curtain to hide file cabinet & other junk


    I'd love to see other projects if you'd like to share...I need inspiration!

    Thanks Shannon. I just sort of fell into it actually.

    I have always loved dolls, and I had this image in my head that I wanted a 1920's bride doll. I couldn't find one that looked like what I imagined so I thought to mself, heck, I paint, I sew, I'll make one

    4 years later it's actually become a booming little homebased business.

    I am having the time of my life actually

    Well good for you! I've always admired people that take a idea and bring it to life...and the fact that you've made it business is a double bonus!

    ShannonGH, I love the onsie, and I am impressed with the curtains. I am teaching myself to sew as well. I got myself a sewing machine for Christmas (from DH) and have been trying to learn. I made a curtain and a few pillows for my office. I need to take some pictures of them.

    Gayle, I have seen some of your dolls on your WC journal. (I am a big time lurker, and yours was one I checked often. ) They are really amazing, it seems like you put so much work into them and your love for it really shows in the end result.

    My latest hobby was really a result of the WC. When I became PG I noticed so many nurseries were decorated with hanging letters of the child's name. I really liked the idea & wanted to have customized ones. I made letters for my daughter's room and before I knew it many family members, friends and girls of the WC wanted me to make some for them. I have such a good time making these and they are all different. I have actually just recently created a web site to sell them. Here are a few I have done for the WC gals.
