Say Hello to Miss Lilliana, or Lilly for short! And short she is! She should be. She is only 7 years old, and was our youngest student in yesterday’s crumbs class. Here she is so proud of her trimmed up Maverick Star! Good going, Lilly! A model student, I think all of us wished for a granddaughter just like Lilly who was here with her grandma to spend the day with us. She is so cute andread more

My bright idea is adding a hexie flower border.......which adds months of time to this quilt. It is all just pinned up on the design wall for now. I see a vine in my future too.
I'm short of my goal.
How about three blocks a week?

The other day I made this ditty bag. I'd been meaning to make myself a new make-up bag. I had won $10 to MichellePatterns and used it to purchase the pattern. This is size medium. It's cute but I decided I'm going to give it to my teenager daughter for her own make-up.. or nail polish, or something.
The blocks were designed by Camille Roskelley. The center plus sign was supposed to be more prominent then the rest of the block. I was using what I had and wasn't thinking much of the color order but I still like my blocks. I ended up pulling another purple print from my stash to ... read more

I've been doing more collecting of fabric lately than cutting/sewing/quilting of fabric. Considering how badly I'm itching to get sewing...it's been hard to figure out WHAT to sew! Anyways, while I work through that particular dilemma, figured I'd show you some of the recent bits and pieces I've been adding to my collection!
In June we took a little family mini-cation to western North Carolina and took a slight detour to Bless My Stitches Quilt Shop in Murphy, NC where I picked up:
a yummy bunch of chevrons, and the Jaybird Quilts ...
I made a couple of things last week which I forgot to share.
A cute pencil case
and a mini make up pouch
Hoping to make some more of these in the next couple of weeks!
If you've been reading my blog for long, you know by now that we're a homeschooling family. One of my pet peeves when it comes to curriculum is the writing instruction. I've seen too many books and curriculums that tell kids that there are certain steps you have to follow. I've also known a lot of authors and written a few novels myself, so I know for a fact that there's no absolute combination of brainstorming and outlining and writing ideas on index cards that's the "right way" to write something.
I'm loving ...
Y’all are going to get tired of my posts this upcoming week – with just working on two projects it is more of the same – hexies and insanity – sorry! Yesterday morning it was so nice outside on the porch and it was so nice not to have to run to Little Rock once […]read more

I drove all the way to Mornington today to attend Treehouse Textiles open day – and I’m so glad I did – wouldn’t have missed it!! 2 friends were supposed to come with me but they both were unable to but that didn’t stop me from going.
The shop is just gorgeous – as is to be expected. I think the photos speak for themselves.
So if you get a chance, pop in and say hi to Emma and Sarah. Its at 2B Empire Street, Mornington. They will still be running some larger workshops in Merricks North as well as ...read more
So today was finally the last day of term for the kids, the summer holiday has officially started and it will be very short with just under 6 weeks off. And of course, last night, I was frantically finishing the teacher's presents. I made some little key pouches from Heidi's tutorial (similar to the one I made last week for the sample swap at the Fat Quarterly Retreat). In total I made 10 of these little pouches: 1 as a trial that I kept for myself, 3 for the sample swaps, 5 for the teachers and 1 ...read more
