Sweet 16

photo 1 (6)

My baby girl turns 16 tomorrow! I can hardly believe it. Seems like it wasn’t that long ago that we brought her home from the hospital and she wouldn’t sleep at all that first night! No matter what we did or where we placed her, she wasn’t having it. LOL. We called the 24 hour line at the hospital maternity floor because we had NO IDEA what we were doing!! Funny now but 16 years ago, not so much.

Our family and one of Amanda’s friends headed to Providence, RI Saturday night to celebrate. We did lots of shopping (3 story mall), lots of eating at Fire & Ice and we stayed over night at the Hilton down there. It was a fun celebration for her and for us too. We had a nice brunch the next morning then we had to hurry home as two of our girls were in a performance in the afternoon. Lindsey sang and played piano and Amanda played piano and flute. They did a great job and we were so proud of them. Tomorrow we will celebrate the ‘real day’and per request of the birthday girl, have strawberry shortcake.

I got a few pictures of evidence that spring is really here…despite the fact it was 39 degrees this morning and my heat is still running…

POSTCARD SWAP is coming to a close regarding sign ups at the end of the week. Drop me a line if you’d like to join us.

If you like the little PARTY mini quilt at the top of the post, you can find the pattern on Craftsy and also at QuiltWoman. This is one of three mini quilts in the Fourth Seasonal Trio pattern.

Have a beautiful day!


Double Slice Layer Cake & First Seasonal Trio

While I was at Keepsake Quilting, I picked up this Moda layer cake.

My plan for this is to make it into a Double Slice Layer Cake quilt for the music school to raffle off next year. My mom recently made this beautiful one with a Riley Blake layer cake (that rhymes quite nicely). LOL.

I love the way it came out. My mother found this tutorial from Missouri Quilt Company for instructions.

I am going to be posting photos of the Seasonal Trio pattern projects over the next few posts. Today’s post will feature the First Seasonal Trio pattern.

Slippers and Fourth Seasonal Trio

Leah and I purchased some new slippers while we were in NH. They are called Snoozies and they were $12.99. So far they are very comfortable although a bit too warm on the feet in the middle of a heatwave! I love how soft they are inside and how cute they are outside!!
Here are the ones Leah got (one day after her birthday)

Here are mine…

These remind me of Pam Kitty Love’s fabrics.

I am going to be posting photos of the Seasonal Trio pattern projects over the next few posts. They will be out of order because I started posting yesterday with the Third Seasonal Trio since it features a summer project. If you want to see the Third Seasonal Trio photos click here.

Keepsake Trip, Summer Roller Coaster, Devotionals, Patterns & Give-Aways!

photo (35)

We had our wonderful trip to Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, NH last week. Here’s Leah picking out some Dr. Seuss fabric for some pillows she is going to make herself. The trip was a quick one but we managed to get into the quilt shop twice in 24 hours! I didn’t purchase a lot this time around as I made the mistake of going there without a clear plan. I was hoping for coordinating music themed fabric for the music school quilt but this time around the selection of music fabric was slim. Instead I opted for a non-music themed layer cake and I will make something of that for next year’s raffle.

Here are more pictures from the trip…

I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them!

The last topic for today’s post has to do with the summer roller coaster syndrome I’m experiencing. Since the end of the school year, I feel as though I have pretty much just been struggling to keep up around here. The laundry is piled high, the flower beds need attention, the bathrooms need cleaning, the blog needs updating, a podcast is overdue, patterns need writing, new projects are a joke at the moment and no exercise is happening. The reasons why I’m behind are all fun things…the kids are home, the friends are over, places to go, packing for vacation, summer activities, etc, etc, etc. I have no right to complain but I still have that feeling that I’m not achieving anything. Honestly, it gives me anxiety. I just want to pass along to you that it seems every time I’m down and I open my Daily Guideposts book, the exact right message is waiting for me and somehow makes me feel better. I don’t know if you are familiar with Daily Guideposts but it’s a book that contains a daily devotional. I went on their website this morning and saw that you can sign up for a free 30 day devotional by email. So for 30 days, you will receive an email with a devotional. It’s a nice way to try it out. This is not something sponsored just something that I thought you might want to try out.

Happy Sunday!


Workin’ On It & A Sneak Peek Reveal!!!

This week has been a quiet one and I loved it! We went to the beach and I tried out my first in the hoop embroidery design. I had seen quite a few people making these on Twitter and I figured I’d give it a try…now I know why they made them…they are addictive!!! These are little pouches that you fit on your key-chain with a split ring. It’s big enough for chap-stick, coins, Splenda, etc.

Here are the ones I made this week:

And here is FREE design download so you can make one or ten yourself!

I didn’t do much else in the way of quilting this week apparently! Today is Leah’s 11th birthday so there won’t be much today either. I did format and send off my Coming Down The Chimney Pattern to be printed so that will be available shortly as will my 4 new Seasonal Trio patterns…stay tuned…..ok, sneak peek…here is what the seasonal ones look like. They will be available through QuiltWoman, shops near you and through my website.
