Is it spring yet????

I have worked on a few projects this weekend. So far I have finished a Boyd's Bear fleece tag blankie for someone, and finished my assignments for PIT. I had to create something spring-ish, so I opted for placemats, silverware/napkin holders, name place cards, and a spring card. I love the spring colors. I am working on a project for Erica's next, then I am hoping to play with some new software for a new project. The weekend's just aren't long enough, I swear! I sure hope spring gets here soon, I am completely in the mood for sunshine and lovely temps and seeing the trees and grass really green up. Hope it is spring where you are at!

Look at this!!!

isn't this great??? My hubby and I were at browsing around in a few antique shops and found this desk and chair. Sadly in need of some renovation when we bought them, check out the end results. Pretty spiffy don't you think??? I absolutely love them! The color is so fab. The lovely new laminate desktop was created by a friend's hubby at his business. Didn't they do a marvy job? My hubby did all the other renovation, including stripping the desk and chair and powdercoating them. Can't wait til the grandbabies can create at this darling little desk!

Care to see another frog? :)

I finished this outfit for my darling little 16 month old granddaughter this weekend. She loved her brother's frog quilt so much I decided she needed her own froggie item. I am working on the pattern for this easy to make outfit in a pdf format and will have it available for sale soon. The headband is almost finished, I'll post pics of that when it is complete.I also have a few other patterns I am working on and will give you sneak peekie pics here when they are ready. You can see by the pics that Kaya likes her new outfit. She also loved my tape measure, she thought it was a fabulous new toy, as you can see by the bottom pic. tfl!!!

Like bears? Check this out!

Merilyn has the most amazing and darling bears you will ever see. Really. EVER ever ever see. She makes each and every one, and names them too. Here is a link to check out her blog - Bearwildered Bears
Ya gotta check it out.

I am working on a little outfit for Kaya right now, I hope it turns out. She is coming over this weekend, so I will have her here to fit it to. I love the colors, I used lots of the fabric I used to make Coop's frog quilt (since Kaya wants to keep the quilt for her own). I'll post pics when I finish it. I also have some layouts I want to post, but those probably won't be posted for a week or two. I am trying to be better about posting to my blog. We'll see how it goes!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
