Twins first day of preschool!

Fall is sure in the air today in the PNW, rain falling on the windows, leaves changing, pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks and BACK TO SCHOOL!

Believe it or not my youngest are old enough for preschool already! Just a couple  hours twice a week, perfect amount of time for them to make some new friends, gain some new skills and have lots of fun. Ruby usually has a easy time with fitting in to any situation but Larkin has been a little more shy. Today was no exception. However since her new teacher is also a friend of mine it helped out a lot and although she was a little shy at first Teacher Tasha made her feel right at home in no time!

I sewed some little book bags and dresses (from my favorite heather ross van fabrics, hello betty hounds tooth for the top  and Oliver and S ice cream dress pattern) for them to wear for the first day of school so they looked extra cute ;-) Tomorrow the big girls start school. I have a 5th and 3rd grader now! Amazing  how fast time goes by once you become a parent. While I am looking forward to a little more time to work on business and keep up on house work, help at the school and crafts it is a strange feeling to not have any “babies” for the first time in 11 years!

I have a lot of catching up on pictures from the summer and I will be working on some new things soon. Speaking of new.. I also finally made a business page on facebook! Check it out HERE. Keep up with new things, and watch for discounts and specials. Hope everyone is having a great week thanks for stopping by

New Projects

Hey there! I am still alive ;-) wow what a busy busy summer it has been! Having 4 little ones at home and my photography business have been keeping me hopping! I have managed however to spend a little time working on a couple of sewing projects. My oldest is almost eleven and decided she wanted to decorate a couple of T-shirts for back to school so she picked out some favorite fabrics and decorated her shirts.

a day at the beach

Last month our family took a day to drive down to long beach Washington with some of our closest friends. It was so much fun to have a day to relax and play with the kids.  I am glad I finally took a few minutes to sit down and upload some of my own pictures from the last few months… ok now back to wedding edits ;-) Be sure to check out Liz’s Blog. She just had a pattern published in a new book that just came out and is doing a giveaway for the book!

Meeting Heather Ross

Last Friday after a totally stressful crazy week (my 8 year old is going through some bad allergic reactions, spending lots of time in Dr’s offices and even a ER visit) I almost wasn’t able to make to meet Heather Ross. I am so glad Liz told me about the event and invited me to go with her because being so busy I have seriously neglected my blog reading and didn’t even know Heather was giving a free lecture! So my daughter Iris (who is a huge Heather Ross fan) and cousin Cory (artist,writer,amazing baker,wonderful life long friend, lover of chickens ;-) took a little trip across the river.

If you know me (at least in a crafty sense) you know that I am a HUGE Heather Ross fan. I love everything about her work. In fact the main reason I decided to learn to sew in the first place was because I saw her goldfish fabric ;-) Before that I had just seen some of the more traditional quilting fabrics and wasn’t that inspired. Little did I know the world of awesome designers and bold brilliant fabrics awaiting me ;-)

Heather was everything I had imagined she would be. Totally fun to listen to speak and inspiring, creative, funny. We loved hearing about her design process and her general message about doing what  you love in your art. I am looking forward to seeing some of her new projects in the future… and I seriously hope one of these days to be able to take a workshop from her (I need a not wedding season workshop pleeeasssse)

After the lecture we went to dinner at Pf Chang’s (haven’t been there in a long time I was overdue for some lettuce wraps) It was a great night and a much needed break

ps see those little mermaid hexies… I am using the scraps from Iris’s quilt to make a matching pillow for her room ;-)
