Did anyone wonder what happened to me? I have spent every spare moment working on a commissioned queen size quilt for one of my most favorite clients! She had a vision of a bold, Anthro-esque quilt. We went back and forth on the fabrics and decided on our palette. She has excellent taste! The quilt […]

    I love this quilt. Those bright happy colors, the pattern itself. It’s so gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

Isnt it easy to get caught up in our tiny, little worlds thinking whatever challenge comes our way is a big deal? Isn’t it easy to think our perspective is real and thorough as long as we manage to keep a grasp on what we deem important?  Today I came home from volunteering and picked […]

My Gathering Flowers quilt is growing. My first week yielded three blocks so I only have 33 to go.    Rather than taking this quilt in phases like I would normally do (cutting all the fabric then piecing all blocks and so on), I’m planning and cutting each block as I go. It makes for […]

  • i think i am a little of both…some things i need to be intentional about and other times i can be spontaneous. great example: my new habit is that if i am watching tv, i have to be hand sewing or knitting. that is intentional! but, i still had time yesterday to whip up a pencil pouch for kate. totally spontaneous – she picked out the fabric and i had it sewn up an hour later. i think the key is balance for me.ReplyCancel

    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

Its high time I begin a fresh, new quilt for our bed. It’s not convenient and I don’t have extra time, but sometimes one must make time for special things!  The last quilt I made for our bed was back in 2012. I made Anna Maria’s Spinning Stars Quilt with her Innocent Crush collection. That […]

    This post made my day. I love grace and being thankful. You manage both everyday.ReplyCancel

    • What a compliment! I wish I handled life with more grace than I do. I’m so happy God is patient! ReplyCancel

  • Both of your quilts are lovely :) I am also making one right now with AMH’s Skipping Stones, so simply beautiful!
    Our anniversary is Thursday, and the last three years of our lives have been nothing but struggle, so I can absolutely relate. You need to appreciate the small things to get through these times, and it seems that you are doing just that. Proverbs 19:21 popped up on my IG feed today, and it really hit me. I hope this next chapter is triumph for your family!ReplyCancel

    • Thank you so much for leaving this! I went straight to Proverbs and I feel like I need that verse hanging in our home! So true. I hope you have a great anniversary and that it will be refreshing for you. Living in constant struggle makes one so weary. ReplyCancel
