I Did It!

Posted on November 6th, by Amy in Uncategorized. 15 comments

Some of you probably remember this post where you strongly encouraged me to join the local Quilt Guild. I finally went last night!! Thanks Natalia for the invite :)

I met a fun bunch of quilters and learned a little too. The show and tell was so much fun – but of course I forgot my camera at the last minute, sneaking out of the house is easier said than done. I’m pretty sure that Rachel will have all the quilts up soon.

All that said, I’m hoping to be a regular guild member real soon!

The Arts Night at school was lots of fun – here’s a few pics of the girls and their Eric Carle inspired artwork.Emmalie’s leaf
Ella’s fox

Emmalie and Sophia with a super cute owl!

Our very focused girls!
They were copying the shapes that they saw within the pictures of the animals.
Sophia’s cat – the vertical lines are the cat’s hair.

I’ve got some mega number crunching to get done today and over the weekend – probably should have gotten a better nights sleep! I hope you have a great weekend~

    that is great that you got to go to a guild meeting finally! I've been planning to go to the one in the next town over since August -they meet the 3rd Thur each month but every month something comes up that prevents me from going :(

    Now that the holidays are nearly here I feel like I'd be really out of place going if they are having their end of the year parties… :(

    Like you I'm a mom of little ones – I have a 5 year old and 2 year old twins… so it's more of a challenge to schedule "me" time. Maybe things will work out for me after the new year?

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

    Good for you for going to the quilt guild! Sometimes those things can be intimidating, so I bet you felt relieved to put yourself out there and just go. Art night looks like it was fun!

    That is cool! I should try and go to ours, but it's so hard to sneak out of the house at night and I already have to once a week for something else….

    Love the Eric Carle inspired art! SO cool!

    Your girls are adorable with their artwork. What a great program they're connected with at school.
