FINALLY sewing something has inspired me to sew more and start talking a bit about it. [Please blur your eyes a bit with this post as I haven't written a word in over a year (aside from facebook posts and grocery lists).] First, I'll just say that the past year... Continue reading

These are my living/dining/kitchen colors. I believe I need this as a fat quarter pack. Any chance?
I use a nostepinne. I like the combination of hand winding (in front of a good movie when the littles have gone to sleep) with center pull results. I look forward to reading about your Lark experience.

I am a Mama of 3-1/2 year old twins. I couldn't agree more with your advice to hold them AND take care of herself/himself. It's a delicate balance, but important for all four of them. Congratulations to them all!

Obviously, I've not posted in a while. I've been busy. After more than two years of being an American statistic, we're getting back on our feet. Among other things, we've been searching for, and now buying, a house. It's a lovely little mid-century-modern in a lovely little neighborhood. Naturally, we... Continue reading

I know your pain firsthand and I am so very sorry. You and Andy (and the birth family) are in our prayers.
I have a summer dress, 2 doll blankets and a queen quilt to get done before the end of summer. Those bits and bobs would be just the thing for embellishing any of them. Not to mention the fall projects I already have stacking up. Then there are the zoo trips, picnics, bbqs, pool visits and so on. Lots of summer fun!

As everyone knows, this has been a nasty weather year. My neck of the woods is no exception. The northwest is trapped in an early spring weather pattern because the rest of the woods (who I wouldn't trade with, for the record) have skipped spring all together and jumped straight... Continue reading

If you've never been to the Walla Walla wine valley (formerly known for sweet onions), you are truly missing something. A good portion of my childhood was spent in that area and I have nothing but fond memories of the rolling hills, the endless fields, the always gorgeous sunsets and... Continue reading

I have lots to tell and lots to show. But I'm afraid I have nothing to say. I've written, inserted photos, deleted and started over many times over the past couple of weeks. sigh. I guess I'll be back in action eventually (hopefully soon). Definitely not tonight. Continue reading

I love being busy. I love having a long list of projects. Somehow, I'm less overwhelmed by daily tasks if I have many big ones in the back of my mind. Here are just a few sneak peeks of what I have going and a quick pic of the one... Continue reading

With two little girls in the family the inevitability of at least one loving pink and/or purple is stout. In our case, both love both. Kate is primarily pink oriented and Lily is a fan of purple. Although they both will accept either in a pinch. All of that said,... Continue reading

This is the Willard throw. They have the loveliest home that began as an underwhelming 70's split level. With four little kids (fortunately, #5 didn't arrive until after the construction mayhem), several reno phases, much head-scratching and stress, they transformed it into a gorgeous modern farm house complete with mother-in-law...
