Quilt Top In a Day

By |June 6th, 2008|My kids, work in progress|11 Comments

I know, I surprise myself too! Sewing with 4 little ones running around can be challenging. I just have to plan ahead for naptime and I sew at the kitchen table. This is a blessing and a curse. A blessing because I can be in the midst of my kids while working on little bits. [...]

So yesterday I sat off and on when possible to finish the binding by hand on Emmalie's quilt. By late afternoon I had finished - my hands were numb at that point so it was a good thing! It went straight to the wash, for the puckery finishing touch. I took it up to Em [...]

Owen is walking?! Last week he had his 11 month milestone and it seemed to be the day he decided to walk. He has been practicing for at least 3 months - one, two steps here and there, occasionally a third. Then it turned into five and six steps at a time - until finally [...]

Usually I feel a little whiny after a long Monday - not today! The sun was warm and bright and it was the last Monday of the school year. Just writing it makes me smile, no more Monday alarm clock, no more pestering Ella to get ready before school, we just have to make it [...]

Hi there! Just a quick post to show you the completed top. I loved putting this together - it was so fast and simple. It measures 52x78" - not quite twin, but I am happy with it! My plan now is purchase backing fabric and batting - then get to quilting. Until then I think [...]

Getting Thicker

We had haircuts the other day for the girls. Emmalie and Sophia are both working on growing lots of hair - my Owen, only boy has more hair than my girls. They were bald until 2 usually and then it takes a good 3 years to get real hair - opposed to the super fine [...]
