Summer Hiking {Mom-day}

Oh Summer- You are so fleeting!  Only three weeks left before the start of school.  We are trying to cram as much as we can into these last few glorious days.  Yesterday we went on a hike.  My 9 year old had the camera most of the time: Alpine Flowers in Bloom. Our Destination I did take the camera back near the end of the hike so I could capture this: My 2 year old’s epic fit because I wouldn’t…

In the Bag, themeday Thursday

If I had known I would not have a chance to blog again until today, I would have thought twice about putting up my disaster photos on Monday. 🙂  Oh well, now you know my deep, dark secret.  I am not a great housekeeper.  Oh wait, you probably already figured that out long ago.  haha.  Anyway, with the birthday bash and the craziness that May turned into, this is only the second theme-day Thursday I’ve done for the month.  But…

Forcing Spring

Here is a teaser for my Point of View post tomorrow. This is the brooch I made to go with my skirt! Love the colors and fabrics. And totally off topic, but can I just say what a difference quality cotton makes in a project? I am very thrifty (of necessity) and usually don’t splurge on quilt quality cotton, but I’m a believer now! {if I can just get my budget on board we’ll be set}I am DYING for spring…

Pocket Purse, second edition

I had another order for a purse last week. She picked out this fabric and I think it is so spunky and fun! Just like my friend who ordered it. She asked me to make it a little taller (3 in. to be exact) so she could fit more stuff in it! 🙂 {we all need more room for stuff right?}I kept the outer pockets the size they were originally, but if I make a tall purse like this again,…

Early Spring Pillow

When I first saw this chenille fabric in the clearance section of JoAnn’s I knew exactly what I would use it for. It reminded me of early spring, when there’s still dirt on the ground, but things are turning green, promising lush beauty to come. The fact that it was an additional 50% off was a bonus. I thought I’d share with you how I made the flowers- in case any of you wanted to try to make one of…

Pillow Talk

I can honestly say that the “bat” pillow is the first real throw pillow I have ever made. I didn’t have a lot of throw pillows, because, honestly, they’re just one more thing the kids can throw around. But, I have become enamored with the art of the throw pillow. They are small, simple (relatively) sewing projects that don’t take a considerable amout of time to complete (mostly). When my friend commissioned me to make some pillows for her daughter’s…
