I feel like I’ve been on a bit of a Tula Pink bender lately – fabric and pattern. So I think these are my last Tula projects for a bit – but she is a tempting mistress, so I know I’ll be back (besides, I still have a Neptune quilt top to finish up, [...]
Ooh, it is nice to have crafty bloggy friends! Generally speaking, I’m known as the crafty one among my friends, and am the giver of handmade gifts. However, I generally don’t receive many handmade gifts. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised to get a fun package for little Kit in the mail last week from [...]
The little miss is becoming a bit more demanding of my attention during the day (aka, she’s actually staying awake – sometimes because she has some awful gassiness going on), so I haven’t been doing much sewing the past couple of weeks unless Steve is around to give me a break. She likes the [...]
Thanks to my awesome husband, combined with the fact that I’ve been pumping and he was able to feed the baby, I was able to finish up the baby quilt for Kit last night! It’s definitely not perfect, especially the machine binding, but I’m glad it’s done and I’m sure this is the first [...]
Life with Kit has been going well – she usually has at least one 3-4 hour stretch of sleep at night, which is fantastic. My teenage & early 20s self would have never dreamed that I would be excited to have 4 hours of sleep in a row, but that’s the new reality in [...]
And no baby yet – honestly, we’re hoping Kit stays put for a couple more weeks. But you are more than welcome to go & laugh at my complete ineptitude as a pregnant chick.
One of the bindings I sewed up a few weeks ago went onto a 30th Birthday quilt for my good [...]
Just another wild night in the Fox house… 940″ of binding cut and prepped. (oh, we also discussed health care plans, Steve is renewing this week).
Perhaps I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not terribly helpful with home improvement projects. I don’t tend to have the patience necessary to meet Steve’s standards. All of this is fine, we’ve both accepted this fact and I will help when necessary. But I have to admit that I feel a little less guilty [...]
The 6 month update of my 30 Before 30 list:
Visit a National Park – I’m thinking this one. Finish the bedroom quilt. TOP IS DONE! And I sent it to Margaret for quilting, now just to hand-stitch the binding to the back. Here’s a sneak peak of the quilting: Remodel my doll [...]
Warning: no photos in this post to protect the innocent: my friend Jöelle. She’s 20 weeks preggo with “Minion,” a baby girl. (Minion apparently has something to do with Megamind, but as I haven’t seen that movie yet, I’ll have to take dad Gabo’s word that the nickname is funny.)
I showed a preview [...]
