Baskets, squares, aprons, and elephants, oh my!

Hello to all!! I know that I have not been posting much this month... either im not crafting much or just too busy to sit and type.. but, here is what I have been doing!!
My Elephant Applique is now available for sale!!

 Also, I have tested this square:

I have created a netted bag to hold my oranges in, as when i put them
on the counter, they tend to mold quickly..
so.. here is how i fixed that problem:
My orange hanger! :) made of cotton yarn, so i can just throw in the machine
to wash between times of getting fruit!

after i made that, i showed my mother in law, and she had to have
one for her onions, so, i made:

so that she could hang her onions! :)

I will probably write this pattern up soon, will put it up for sale for probably $1 or less.

And with Easter coming up soon in the States, i made
for my son, measures about 5in wide and about 4in tall. 
will be crocheting a few things and getting him a chocloate bunny to go in it as well!
a free, easy pattern to make!

At long least, I can put up something else I have made sewing!
Momma gave me a spare apron to fix for her and I turned it into:
Yes, she is a racing nut, and loves Dale Jr. well, also Dale Sr. but, anyhow..
I am in the middle of making another on from scratch, that one is
going to be blue jean material with the 88 fabric! :)
So, now mom can waitress on saturday and sunday in style! LOL

I think that has about done it! all that I have been up to lately... To come, I hope to have more quilling projects, more sewing projects and my march squares completed for my blanket on the next post! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look!! I am always interested in hearing suggestions or comments! see something you like and would want, let me know and we can work something out! Want something else made? let me know!
