Charms of Doe

Doe charm pack

We were a bunch of sickies this week…which, on one hand I hate being sick…but on the other hand we stayed home and did nothing…and it was glorious. 

Almost like in the summer…but with colds.  ;)

Sewing with Doe Fabric

Little Charm Pack blocks, Cluck Cluck Sew

I broke open two charm packs from Robert Kaufman of Doe.  One charm pack is the Doe coordinating solids…not colors I would ever put together on my own and that’s why I love Carolyn’s fabric so much.

Last weekend before my sweet lovely children gave me a cold I snuck out to my favorite local shop and picked up a few fabrics I didn’t need had to have.

Favorite fabric meme

It’s like whoever wrote that knows me personally.  ;)

Scraps Inc.

Bangles Quilt from Scraps Inc.

I’m kicking off a blog tour this week for Scraps, Inc!  I am beyond lucky to be included with 14 crazy talented designers who contributed beautiful patterns to this book.  The quilts and patterns are modern and unique.  Plus the photography is amazing….and good quilt photography gets me every time! 

Scraps Inc. Book

My quilt is Bangles.  It’s two simple blocks, put together to become a chain quilt that I think looks a little like jewelry. Thus the name “Bangles”.  Have I told you how bad I am at naming quilts??  Horrible.  Luckily I’m pretty good at naming kids and that’s what counts.

You can find the book here on amazon.  Or, during the blog tour you can get the book 30% off the original price….enter discount code SCRAPS30 (click on discount code for link), the code is good through Dec. 1st.

I hope you’ll like this beautiful book and the patterns in it as much as I do…and a big thanks to Susanne Woods for being crazy amazing.  Happy Scrapping!

PS. The quilting was done by Christina!

Summer Days Table Topper

 

Oh Clementine Table Runner, Quilts and More

Summer days are definitely gone around here…it’s freezing outside!  If you pick up the latest Quilts and More magazine you’ll find some summery projects made from Oh Clementine.

Quilts and More, Winter 2014

There is a quilt pattern by Carrie and an adorable apron by Patty in it, along with some other great projects (love the sewing caddy Monica!).

Now back to my normal spot for the day….we sit by the fireplace and watch Frozen for the 1246351st time, Sophie eats frosted flakes out of a bag, the dog begs for her frosted flakes, Ryan makes potty noises during all the songs so Sophie will scream, and I’m trying to figure out what to start for dinner and planning a cub scout activity.   It’s the best.  :)
