ONE CREATIVE PERSON

So you all have heard me talk about my friend Krista....she joined a towel swap with me....I have had my towel from the start because she just lives down the road. I have noticed that others got their towel but haven't seen anyone blog about it so I am blogging for her.

Isn't this towel adorable? She is amazing. She does scrapbooking too and that is how she designed this towel, from her scrapbooking supplies. When she brought over her idea, I just could not believe how awesome it was going to be.



She came over one day with another friend and they made potholders like the trivet below...well..she didn't stop there, she went home and made me this pot holder...I love it...it matches the towel...



Then I went to her home to watch her use her new embroidery machine....and this is what she came up with after I left. I am the happy recipient of this wrist pin cushion....she designed it herself....quilted the bottom with extra batting...isn't she amazing? Shouldn't she do a blog?

Doesn't she spoil me?
She has the cutest husband and kids, her youngest calls me grammie...isn't that adorable....I just love it..and the boys shower me with hugs when they leave me...I truly love her and her family....and since I don't have grandkids of my own....by as well steal hers...

Very cute. I love the 3D flowers! Would be great if you and Krista would write a tutorial on making them. I do love flowers AND tutorials! {hint, hint, hint}.
