15 : : Studio Blog Tour

Posted on July 15th, by Amy in photographs. 22 comments

What you don’t see it!? Well it’s lunch time :) My “studio” is put away!My sewing machine is tucked away on the floor.

My fabrics safely stowed away from grubby fingers :)That chest holds fabrics, batting, interfacing, rulers, the cutting mat is behind it, and my tools/notion box is on top! That is my computer chair on the right too :)When nap time rolls around, and the girls go out to play – I pull everything back out again! The iron sits atop the yellow shelf and the board to the right of it. There’s speakers on the shelf too – always some tunes on while quilting :)

Kristina wants to know–– What do you use your space for?
My space is the kitchen table, so it has many uses! We eat 3-5 meals a day here … Read More »

Somehow they all found themselves on the swings at the same time :)

The huge slide! Owen went down a few times, then froze up at the top and I had to go rescue him. The stairs are much worse on the way down!—————————————-

It’s done!! I am so excited, and proud to have this accomplishment under my belt. I will probably never do it again – but I am happy to have quilted this “monster quilt” myself :) I’ll show you more of the quilting once the binding is on and it has been washed – I can’t wait!!

The other resident :) She’s Joe’s dog (I’m allergic) but I love having her around when the house is quiet. Aurora’s a great guard dog – even though all she really wants is attention!—————————————-

After basting my quilt on the floor – we got all the blankets from the other room to build a fort! Kept them busy for a little while :)

Love the look on Owen’s face – it says it all!

It is basted together! I’m still undecided on how to quilt. . . it’s so linear I’m thinking curves . . . any suggestions?

And there’s a new quilt-along in the flickr group – come join us!

Emmalie’s response — “I guess we’re having lettuce for dinner!” She’s right, sadly this is one that the kids don’t eat yet, but they do eat raw spinach. Still can’t figure that one out!

6 : : To Do

Posted on July 6th, by Amy in My kids, photographs. 15 comments

Last week the girls and I sat down and made a list for them to do each day before they can play outside. It works! Having them help decide the chores and then able to check them off themselves, makes them want to do it :) And helps me out too!—————————————-
