If you follow me on Instagram (thefooshe) you know this post is beyond overdue. I used the Shift quilt pattern (written by Alison Glass and I) to make a queen size quilt for my sister out of Anna Maria and Julia Horner’s fabrics. I backed it in one of my all time favorite AMH prints, […]

If you’re a quilter (or crafter of any kind) you’ve probably had that person you’ve needed to make a quilt for for ages. My cousin came to visit years ago and fell in love with this quilt I made for my mom.    I knew he wanted one but it wasn’t until this year after […]

    Can’t believe I missed this on the blog. Been just too busy these days with school and work. This looks absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to see the final result. In the meantime, I hope you’re finding a little time, every day, to do a little dance :)ReplyCancel

Over the past several months one topic has weighed very heavily on my mind- being intentional with my time and the things I do during that time. I am so terrible with time management as a rule. One of the only set times we have is that the kids go to bed at 7:30.   […]

    Yes, yes, yes! You are a mind reader! I am struggling with this right now so I’m totally with you for this journey. Oh, and that AMH weaving is amazing!ReplyCancel

  • I had a similar thought yesterday, though my problem is finishing my thesis rather than crafts. I am fairly intentional with my crafts, I sew and make things I really need, because even with one child my time is restrained and fragmented. I find crafts fit that perfectly, since I can cut a bit here, put a few pins there and all that while something is cooking on the stove and I keep my boy from maiming himself. A half or full hour walk with Daddy is enough to sew plenty. But the thesis? I need concentrated blocks of time, possibly at the library. I have those in the evening when boy is asleep, but then I am tired and I read blogs. And just yesterday I thought I should try to use my time intentionally, instead of drifting along. I am following eagerly.
    BTW, those quilts are gorgeous.ReplyCancel

  • yes! setting intentions truly helps me, too.ReplyCancel

Are you a creature of habit? I sure am. I’m the girl that orders the same meal at Panera every time for 10 years. I go to the same restaurant on every date (which happens to take place only on my birthday and anniversary for the most part). I use fabric from the same companies […]

Wallace just turned two. He’s becoming more independent. Couple that with his great love of dressing up and accessorizing, and I knew that kid needed a backpack.  Remember this backpack I made for Layla when she turned two? I knew with some personalization it would be perfect for Wallace too. I found that crazy awesome […]
