We headed down to the zoo today with some friends and had a blast. First time I have had 3 car seats in my truck. It worked out quite nicely. And someone was so tuckered out that I managed to get a blanket sewn up for a friend's new baby. I am loving how the turtles turned out. Just a simple cotton print backed with minky and then I free motioned traced some of the turtles. Continue reading

I finished up the giant quilt last night. I am pleased with how it turned out and am thrilled to have it done. It is very hard to get a good picture but here are a few. And even better Keith really likes it. I hope he doesn't get any ideas about more quilts in this size. Continue reading

DONE!!!! I have been working on the giant for our bed quite a bit this week and managed to finish up the free motion quilting and now just have to get the binding done. Keith and I even agree on the fabric we would like, I just hope I can pick up a bit more. Fingers crossed. I am pretty please with how it is turning out and I even like the back. Pardon the poor pictures, no natural light. Continue reading

She has a great sense of color. I bought a charm pack to make a toddler bed quilt for my special girl. I had the charm squares on two cuts of solids that I was toying with, Tiny asked to sit in the chair and had a great time moving them from one to the other and mixing them up. We also had quite a bit of fun at the mall with a friend. Continue reading

Very long ago....I promised Keith an oversize quilt for our king size bed. Julie was kind enough to help me with a strategy, cutting plan and lots of encouragement. I got to cutting that first nap. Take a look. Continue reading

We were so lucky to have Julie visit! We had such a great time, play, reading and a zoo trip. Tiny even learned to say Julie....her first name other than mama and dada. We are looking forward to an even longer visit this summer :) Continue reading

This first one is a reading blanket. Tiny loves quilts and blankets. So I whipped this one up with some cute fabric from my trip to Fancy Tiger. Just two yards of coordinating fabric, double layer of batting and I had a lot of fun with improv free motion quilting. Then a very pink binding, its what we affectionately call Aunt Mary pink. I can say that this is getting a lot of use. Continue reading

Let me say that I was not prepared for this at 16 month old. I know everyone tells you how fast they grow up but sometimes it just smacks you in the face. Tiny is climbing out of her crib, and to state the obvious, it is no longer safe. Last night was the second escape and fortunately we haven't had any injuries but we're not chancing it. So today we converted to a toddler bed. Here are the before, during and after transition shots to get us to a big girl bed. She did great, this is the monitor picture of her first nap in her own big bed. Snuggled in with her bunny, elephant, blanket and book! Continue reading

My mom was visiting and she was so sweet to pick us up a child's table and chairs from Ikea and haul it out here. Tiny certainly seems to like it. We also went to the grand reopening of Tomorrow's Heirlooms and got a very cool balloon butterfly. Continue reading
