June, eerrr July!

Posted on June 30th, by Amy in photographs. 10 comments

Where did the month go!?

In an effort to keep up with my family and remain connected with you, my plan for the next month is to post daily – but just a picture or two.

I’m finding it impossible to sit at the computer (desktop – ugh!) with all the daily activity around here, not to mention my lack of sewing time for this space.

So my month of pictures may be quilting, sewing, kids, cooking, baking or cleaning – somebody’s got to do it! I hope you enjoy a wider glance in our life through photographs!

Any questions? Let me know – I’ll do my best to answer them all :)

Our weekend in pictures

Posted on June 29th, by Amy in My kids. 20 comments

I hope you had a good weekend! We had been promising the kids a little pool, but had to wait for it to warm up enough. They had a great time in and out of the pool – getting the water nice and dirty! Oh well :)Owen loves being in the water, I have to drag him out – even if the water is cold and making him shiver.

Lots of fun family time.

A little gardening – finally ready to start eating some of it!

A little binding, with my feet in the kiddie pool – of course!

That’s about it for our weekend! What did you do?

Also, do have a question for me? Any sort of question, I’m willing to share – just ask!

Blessings to you ~

New Handbag

Posted on June 26th, by Amy in bag. 37 comments

Yesterday I cut out two bags :) It was a good day – and that was before noon! After bedtime I managed to put one together, the other is waiting patiently for a bit more free time.

Do you recognize it? It is the same bag I’ve been playing with for a while now – this version had been taunting me last week, when I had no time to sit down. Do you like this version!?

I had to add the touch of pink! The other bag I cut had lots of extra fabric, so I added the pink/gray panel. This bag has no quilting and I used fusible fleece for the first time – Love it! I need to go browsing for closures – any suggestions?

Have a great weekend ~Amy

SewConnected – June

Posted on June 24th, by Amy in SewConnected. 13 comments

Sarah of house of krom, or krommama on flickr, surprised us this month by not sending fabrics! Instead she asked that we use our scraps to make a wonky log cabin house. Super fun and something new for me :)

This is my busy, wonky log cabin house! I found some old scraps I haven’t seen for a while – it was a lot of fun!

Finally I have sat with my machine, after a whole week without my creative therapy – I was overdue! I have a placemat swap to get to next!

See you soon ~Amy

It would seem I’ve been absent more than present here lately. . . and my creative time has been out the window, but I have good reason!

Saturday morning we packed the kids up andwent camping! Our plan was to be gone two nights, but the second night had some serious storms in the forecast. Joe and I ended up taking down the tent in the midst of a crazy hail storm – thankfully the kids were safe inside the truck :) We opted for more sleep at home, instead of the lightening/thunder night that was predicted.

We had a great time over in Dinosaur! The kids love to collect rocks, and poke sticks in holes to see who lives there. And explore the petroglyphs and scramble the mountain side.

Being in a National Monument means that all … Read More »


My Girlie Girls :)

Posted on June 18th, by Amy in My kids. 36 comments

I got my top done and haven’t touched my machine since! My mind is full of projects, but the sun has finally been shining. Today was a full day with the kiddos, running errands and gardening/weeding! It’s crazy how fast those things grow :/

Ella and I spent some time playing Scrabble while Owen napped and the little girls entertained themselves – Ella’s a great speller, and Scrabble is a great way to reinforce it!Sophia ended up watching us, she seemed to want to chat while I was trying to come up with a word :)Today Ella and Emmalie got haircuts! Both have been ready for a while, but I wanted to make sure they were certain, before heading to the salon. At 5 and 9 these things change quickly :)Aren’t they cute!?I’m hoping that Em’s … Read More »


Quilt Along Top

Posted on June 15th, by Amy in quilt-along. 64 comments

Hi all! I managed to get my quilt top together! I love all the colors and beautiful prints. It is SO big!

My helpers were holding it down while the wind was blowing :) I am still working out the batting and backing, really just crossing my fingers! Part of the quilt-along this week is a long-arm quilting giveaway :)

I’m super behind in my reader – I can’t seem to keep up with it since school’s been out! Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow instead of sewing . . . maybe :)

Blessings~Amy

Happy Day!

Posted on June 13th, by Amy in bag. 18 comments

Earlier this week I made use of the gift certificate my sister gave me for my birthday. Isn’t she sweet!?I’ve been watching Wildwood since Market, loving the cool colors and graphic design. The bag I have loved for a while and so I thought I would do a crisp, modern bag – because you know I need another! :) No chance for a giveaway with this one!

————————————–

The yard sale this morning was decent, slight chance of rain for the morning, but I did manage to unload $60 worth of stuff. Pretty good considering I don’t hang on to much for long – no space to collect here :) The last hour has been full of big lightening and crazy winds – my girls are busy inside with a fort today. I even … Read More »


Quilt Along Progress

Posted on June 11th, by Amy in My kids, quilt-along. 34 comments

I have to admit it – I’ve been overwhelmed by the project I took on. A queen, almost king sized quilt! What was I thinking??

To have a few less pieces to deal with I made 4-patches of my blocks. Great idea! I had decisions to make for each block but not all at the same time, and I did it while watching tv in the evening after the kids went to bed :)

Before I sewed my groups together I laid a few out to get an idea of the final results -

This is a quarter of my blocks, I’m now full of excitement and energy to get it together! For today I’m taking a little break though — I took my machine in for servicing. Thankfully the little shop in town has a 24 … Read More »
