A Quiet Summer
Hi Friends! It's been a quiet summer over here and, if I am to be perfectly honest, it's been kind of a tough summer.  I'm not going to go into too much detail but June and July were really difficult for our family. August is looking much better and I know ...

Quilting the Daisy Chain
Hi Friends! Confession time: I have two, maybe weird but I think totally normal, habits. The first is, if I really want to sew but there is something that is more important to get done (for example, taxes) I won't sew anything until I get the more important...

Daisy Chain (part 3)
Hello Friends! I just returned home earlier this week from two weeks in AZ with my family. We had so much fun: the kids were able to play with their cousins, we went to parks, we saw plays, we rode trains and carousels! Whew! I am beat! We left 95 degree we...

Daisy Chain part 2
Hi! It's Monday! We don't have school today and it's been kind of awesome. I've been sewing my tail off these past few days (it helped that it rained cats and dogs yesterday), trying to get all the blocks done for the Daisy Chain quilt. If you follow me on ...
