Hand Stitching Time • 4 X 4
I know very, very basic but you have to start somewhere at some point. Here is my first 4" x 4" project since I updated my hand stitching material box here. This craft along with crochet is something I learned when I was very little. There should be a point in life when we start appreciating every single moment of our lives, remembering the good things of our childhood that helped build the person we are now, so I will forever treasure this art as part of my life. I have a project I made when I was like 12 years old. I am sure I brought it with me when I moved to USA from the Dominican Republic, I can't find it right now but when I do I will share it with you.

Quilting Time • My First
Here it is! my first quilting piece. It went from here to this. It was supposed to be done last Friday but since The Road to Californian Quilting Show was happening that weekend, I decided to post some of my pics from the 2015 show here, since I was not able to attend this year. I know is very simple and tiny compared with the spectacular work you quilters make out there but this is just for me to have some fun and escape my fashion world for a moment.

Scrapbook Time • I Rode a Zebra
Yes, yes I did! What's wrong with me dreaming a bit too much? Too funny and silly. I love carousels, that kid inside me that never stops trying to have some fun here and there. So, in this carousel I rode a Zebra.

Quilting Time • Road to California Quilting Show
Now, I know I said here that I was going to be showing you my first quilting project this week, but I totally forgot that the Road to California is held each year at the Ontario Convention Center it started yesterday and I thought it was more appropriate to post about it instead. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend this year, but I wanted to show you some of the pics I took from last year's show. I really admire the creativity and the work involved in this art. You can check out their website here for more info.

Hand Stitching Time • Goodies
I'm so excited about these materials I bought for hand stitching. Like anything you do in life, it is all done step by step, so I first had to get the basics and then go from there. I'll share with you the final project next week. Happy Saturday!

Quilting Time • Preparing for It
This is one craft I have been admiring for a while now, not like completely crazy about it but I have even been in quilting shows and it is amazing what people can do with this art. Since this year I am embracing different things, I thought: Why not quilt a little? Just for fun! So, I decided to go to the store to get me a few pieces of fabric and start preparing for it. I'll show you the final project next week.

I enjoyed this scrapbook piece a lot! Using the polka dots papers shown here. I am very new to this but I like this craft I think is fun. Obviously I couldn't decide, sandals or heels? Orange or Green? Happy Thursday!
