Current State

DSC_0495Originally uploaded by parkcitygirl So here's where I am stuck! I have it basted together with a backing that I love and I purchased some green thread that works well - I think. White worked on the front but not the back and the opposite is true of cream. Green was a good compromise :) [...]

Do you have fun family traditions for the 4th of July? We have one that we started last year - and the girls love it! Owen was a mere 2 weeks old last summer and I was in no condition to traipse about for hours, so Joe took the girls to the hot air balloon [...]

I have seen a few different diamond patterns around the internet, money being tight - I opted not to buy any. . . now I'm thinking - I'm a fool! I have loved the look of the diamonds and have spent a few hours playing with paper diamonds, a few fabric scraps. I just had [...]
