This is the last week of school for my children, they are looking forward to their summer break. I have been blogging since 2005 and I think it's time for a (summer blog) break for mom too. I promise to come back in August, fresh and new. I hope to show you some finished quilts, some new projects, home made soap,knitting and wonderful stories.
On a few blogs and websites I saw clothespin bags. I just had to make one for myself. I grabbed my scissors, fabrics, and with some cutting, thinking and sewing this is the result. Now I know how it works I have ideas how to make it better.
I completed a mini, OOH, I love minis! I quilted it with the clamshell pattern. I used the method in the book “Quilting with Style”, its a great book! If you like hand quilting I highly recommend this book by Gwen marston and Joe Cunningham
I thought it would be a nice idea to take a picture of my two oldest kids. You know THE picture you want to show proudly to everyone, you keep in your purse and show everywhere you HAVE to show it. My two eldest are 1 year apart and it's been a long time since I took a picture of them both together!! Besides, it's good practice to take pictures of people with my new camera. I know how to photograph a quilt, photographing people is something totally different!!!
At some point you just give up. I definitely NEED more practice (any tips for the photographer?). And my two eldest??? Well, I guess I have to bribe them before I photograph them again.
