My little blurb in Modern by the Yard from IVORY SPRING

Good morning, and happy Monday to you, Friends!  I hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend.

This is a new one for me, as you will find my little blurb a fun twist on the sawtooth star block in the latest issue of Bernatex’s Modern by the Yard issue!

Some of you might know that I am on a quest to see how many sawtooth star quilts I can make.  Here are a few I have made with Benartex’s fabrics.

Friends, we are already 3rd week into Miss Baby’s summer holiday!  It’s been a busy and happy summer so far.  I love having my baby home with me.  In the summer time, I also double as a homeschool Mom.  I was just telling someone the other day that I used to be able to just wing it with the learning material, not anymore!  Now I have to prep.  I am also using this summer to train Miss Baby on some essential life skills.  So, I haven’t had to do as much laundry this summer because she is ...

Long time no chat!!! from IVORY SPRING

Hello Friends, looong time no chat!  I hope you have been well…. and spring has sprung!

DAY IN LIFE

If I don’t see another clump of monkey grass for the rest of my life, it would be too soon!  I don’t mean any offense at all to those of you who love monkey grass.  We are in the process of redoing part of our front garden, and that involved having digging up and digging up and digging up existing monkey grass!  I thought it was just going to be an afternoon to get the front garden on the ...

The foreshadowing and the fulfillment… from IVORY SPRING

Behold, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

John 1:29

I think it’s interesting that Passover and Good Friday falls on the same day this year — combining the foreshadowing and the fulfillment of the Lamb of God on one day.

Have a blessed Passover and Good Friday, Dear Friends!

De-stash Update / NEW BOOK / Free Pattern & More from IVORY SPRING

Hello Everyone, this is your long-lost wayward quilting friend checking in!  I am briefly crawling out of my “pattern writing hole” to write a quick note to you.  It’s been crazy since I last updated my blog… but all is well, and thank you to those who wrote to ask me to take care of myself.  I am so glad you are looking out for me.  Yes, I am doing well despite the craziness.  I am sleeping well – I go running at least once a week – I am getting my house in order – and I am getting caught up ...
