Family



Works-in-progress…

Using these little charm packs to make a quick and easy (and just a little out of my comfort zone) quilt.

The colors are right up my alley, and so are the prints.  I’ve been a fan of Lotta’s long before she was creating fabric. In fact, I think I still have a stationery set from a few years ago on my Amazon wish list. :)

Ignore that this quilt needs to be pressed. There’s only so much daylight. The part that’s out of my comfort zone? That stretched me as a quilter just a bit this week? The asymmetry–and not just a little asymmetry, but a whole quilt full of it. I think it’s interesting that something can still be balanced even though it’s not the same on both sides.

I’m also working on deciding what baking project is worthy of these beautiful eggs from the chickens around the corner. (Thanks Sue!)

I’m working on living up the rest of the summer at the farmer’s markets with a fairy princess.

And her bodyguard, Batman. (Dang, they’re cute.)

I’m also working on a project with this…

Using a whole bunch of these–because hey. Soccer season just started. I’m chillin’ at the field 3 evenings a week and twice on Saturdays. Plus, Halloween is one of the best holidays around.

I’ll keep you posted.

What are you working on?

Baby Boy Shower

My sister had a baby boy last week, but before he came we threw her a big party.

Complete with sailboats and sharks and starfish.

And lots and lots of treats.

(Yes, I picked out all the pink and purple m&ms. I’m weird like that.)

Here comes the bride.

My (not so) little brother is getting married tomorrow, which of course means that my house is full of flowers.

His little chicky (aka fiancee) wanted to be surrounded with purple, yellow, and white on her big day.

So naturally, her wish is our command.

My house smells glorious, and I’m gearing up to make a billion boutonierres and bouquets.

Right after I go have some yummy food at the dinner in their honor.

This event will also explain why I’ve been a little distracted…I’ve been altering wedding and bridesmaids dresses all week.

But don’t worry, I still love you. And I still have a bunch of quilts and projects to show you, too.

Just as soon as I can breathe.

xoxo
