Proverbs 31:13 (descriptioin of a worthy woman)
She looks for wool and flax, and works with her hands in delight

I made this tiny quilt for Allie today. It clips onto her stroller or car seat, and so far she has drooled on it just a little. I'm trying to think of ways to creatively use the hundreds of 4inch squares my husband's aunt gave me. They are in various colors. That's my project for tomorrow. Any ideas?
LOL I don't think I have any readers yet.

Here I am! I finally started my very own craft blog. I'm a lurker, and I have been reading other beautiful crafty blogs for a while not. I think I'm ready to join in.
Let me introduce myself. I am 24, married, and have a beautiful 5 month old daughter. I have been crafty all my life. My nickname emedoodle (pronounced Emmy Doodle) was given to me by my dad when I was around 5 years old. I started sewing when I was around 8 or 9, and got my first machine at age 12 (a hand-me-down White from my aunt Kathy). I also have dabbled in knitting, polymer clay, papercraft/altered books, scrapbooking, and bookbinding. I love my "stuff" container which has all the essentials for nearly every craft project imaginable. I have recently decided to make things easier I'm going to focus on sewing as a past time for now. Too many things at once means none of them get done well (and I seem to want to buy the whole craft store). I'm cheap. I hesitate to buy too much fabric at once and well... I need to ease into it. I don't think I've ever really "quilted" a whole quilt. Not as far as piecing it and fabric coordination etc. I'm working on starting and my first major project will (hopefully) be a full size quilt for my daughter. I like making usable things. I'd like to get involved in a couple quilt related swaps. I should be asleep. Why am I writing this at 1:47am?
