Oh so excited!


Hello everyone...it's been a while. I've been a busy bee around here. I'm so, so excited over my latest project! It's a baby quilt I put together for a gal back in Cali. We grew up in the same little town, went to the same little ol' H.S....had a lot of the same friends. Anyway...she came across my "myspace" and really liked the things I've been designing. Her new little girl is due in Nov. and she wanted something unique for her bedding. I told her I would LOVE to make a quilt for her new bundle of Joy! Here we are...all finished. I do have to say so myself...it's absolutely gorgeous! What do you think?

...lastly, a tiny, but important piece of satisfaction...


My little Mae, as you all know, is struggling with kindergarten this year. Last week I was so busy, trying to get the baby quilt finished, trying to get more items ready for my etsy shop, planning birthday parties (we have 3 this month!), trying to get started on my fall crafty swap (which I have, thank you Lord), and making progress on all my coffee cozy orders! Well, in the middle of the day on Tues. I went to have lunch w/ her (that was our deal...she would try not to cry for 3 full weeks & I would come and have lunch w/ her) she made it, so I had to make good on my promise (I did make sure w/ her teacher that it wouldn't affect her progress, she assured me it wouldn't) hmmm...well it did. She had a heck of a time letting me leave. She cried, and held on to me for dear life. I slowly made it out of the classroom, and yes...had my cry, too. Of course my day went south. All I could think of is how much I missed her, how much it hurt her to be away from me, was she that scared? It was not a very productive day after that. I finally made it back to my sewing machine and sat down with a thump. I could not sew for enjoyment or even necessity...all I could think of was Mae. Before I knew it I was on the floor cutting out a little somthin' somthin for my sweet girl. This is what it turned out to be...






She loved it! I was so happy to see her smile after school. It made me feel like there was a light at the end of the tunnel. For now, we're both on the road to Kindergarten recovery. I know it's a difficult road, but I've been told it's not a very long road and it will get easier and easier everyday :-)

Hi Charity ~ She is too cute! And I love that bag you made her. I still remember leaving my Cassie at kindergarten...I cried for what seemed like forever!

Have a great week!

Hugz,
