Auberne` Has Been Creative

Pride book softi 

Thank you for all the well wishes, I had a lovely time. I have to say I am quite blessed because I have the kindest MIL. She is always encouraging to me, calls me her friend as well as a daughter. She also adores her granddaughters and is always encouraging in all their endeavors. I never hear one word of criticism from her (which as a homeschooler, it is so nice to do not have to deal with them being unsuportive). Auberne` was showing her all she had been doing and I thought I would share with all of you.

Auberne` finds hand sewing softie very interesting. She is always looking for real things she can turn into a softies. One of her favorite books is Pride and Prejudice. She copied the front and side of the book on fabric and made a softie. You can even open the flap and read the first page. She discover writing on fabric is not as easy as she thought. But I told her to remember all she has learned, it will make her a better "craft-er" in the future.

For Valentine's day she made her father a Hobbit pipe from clay. She also constructed a holder from bark and a branch.

For me for Valentines day she made this pin cushion, that you tie onto the machine.

Another softie she made for her bed is a crown, she collects crowns.

For her sis she made a Jawa with chocolate chip cookie. You should have seen the sand-crawler box she made to wrap the gift. She even had Star Wars music playing in the background.


Also banner for her Star War pins. Keep up the creative work sweetie, I love to see your out of the box creativity xoxoxox

What a wonderfully talented girl! You must be so incredibly proud! I adore the pincushion idea! What a great job you are doing mom!


Everything is beautiful! What a talented and beautiful daughter you have! And I know you can go ditto on that! (Waving at Cloe too!).

Thanks for the breakfast casserole recipe. It sounds delish!

Glad to have you back in blogland. I really missed you!



It's nice to hear that you've enjoyed a good visit with you MIL.

Both your girls are very talented. I always enjoy seeing what they are up to.

A tip for writing on fabric....iron the fabric to the shiny waxed side of freezer paper. It stiffens it enough to make writing much easier. Unpeel from the paper, then sew.


I just finished Pride and Prejudice and fell in love with it! Your girls are quite the artists! Homeschooling is the best, isn't it?


The book turned out great. Love everything. Pincusion is a great idea. Love, Grandma

Like mother like daughter! Isn't it wonderful being able to create and craft together. I thank my Mom all the time for taking the time to teach me all that she did. Would love to see the crown collection sometime! How about show and tell?


Well no surprise to me that Auberne is so clever and multi-talented.
I love the orginality of each design.

Hugs to your Dear MIL!

And oh my, but your Auberne is talented! So creatively talented.

And I smiled when I saw the Jane Austen title. I seem to be on a Jane Austen track today, also. :-)

Dear Clarice,

What fun to have such creative juices flowing! I never associated Jawas with chocolate chip cookies before! And the book is just perfect; what memories she'll have when she's grown up.

I'm glad the visit went well.




What a wonderfully creative person, and such varity, from Starwars to Jane Austin. I applaude her wide field of interests.


Hi Clarice,
Glad you had a nice time!
Your daughter is quite talented!!
Thanks for sharing,

Auberne` has really made some fantastic creative projects. I am so impressed. The Jane Austen book, the hobbit pipe, and just everything is wonderfully done. I may have to "borrow" her ideas as they all look fun. Thank you, Auberne`, for sharing your projects with us.


Those are really great projects! That pincushion is especially cute.


What wonderful creativity! And how great that you all encourage her.

I hope you all have a great day!
