Movin On

Gosh life can get hectic.....with kids, hubbies, parents, grandkids, cooking, cleaning, and quilting....
blogging adds another dimension of things that take moments of our precious time. I have enjoyed blogging, your comments and all the positive feedback you have shared with me. However I struggle to balance time constraints vs all the things I want to do and want to get done. So something's gotta give and that happens to be the blog. 
It's not that I won't be posting my projects, your projects and other goodies...I'm just trying to simplify things and will be posting to pinterest as an alternative. It will be virtually the same, without the commentary......never thought I would be at a loss for words, however this avenue works better for me, lifestyle wise. 

The blog will continue to stay open on the site so you can always go back and look at projects that were posted there. 
Keep on quilting!

Segue to Hiatus

IMG_1704
So this is my segue to let you know I will be on hiatus until the first week of March. Dear Hubby and I are away for three weeks, heading out to Florida.
I had to make myself a couple of sunglass cases as I couldn’t find a large enough case to fit my glasses.  I had a little piece of sunglass fabric which was perfect for the project. I used Bosal’s Soft and Stable as batting to make the cases extra sturdy.
They turned out just perfect. Now I’m ready to fly!

See you in a few weeks!

Geek Squad

This is the last of six bibs I made for my niece Candice. It started with Einstein fabric….I paired the two fabric together, then added a little tag I had in my stash. The little tag reads Geek in Training which seemed perfect.

My brother’s new grandchild needs to be properly outfitted in train- wear. Dear brother is a huge train and railroad fanatic and this little bib will be a perfect fit.  I’ve been sewing up all kinds of goodies for the mom to be.

Diaper Cutch

IMG_1668
This is a functional little diaper clutch for the busy mom….small enough to tuck in your purse and holds all the essentials you need to change the little one, without pulling out all the necessities.
IMG_1669IMG_1670
It holds your wipes and a few diapers. Just what you need, without taking the whole diaper bag…..just enough for a quick trip.

Sweet-Heart

IMG_1640

This little door wreath is for my Dear Eldest Daughter….she has chickens, and when I saw the chicken wire wreath frame, I knew I needed to make something for her with it.

With Valentine’s day fast approaching I opted to make it to celebrate the occasion.

Ages ago, I had found these cute little pink heart Christmas bulbs after Christmas on sale, bought them and tucked them away. They came in handy to decorate the wreath for Valentine’s Day.

Girl or boy?

IMG_1683

This is the boy version for John…Emily’s brother.

I love the little moustache fabric….so cute. I paired it up with a soft gray, then embroidered the name on.

I can hardly wait to see if Candice’s baby is a John or an Emily!
