Crapapple Hill Studio

There is a quilt shop up in Lynden that carries these patterns from Crapapple Hill Studio.  I've been drooling over them for quite some time.  I finally decided to bite the bullet and get myself my favorite patterns:

and from her tea party pattern:

Her photos are copyrighted for a good reason.  I can't wait to start these fun projects.  I ordered the tea party one for my mother and I'll make a second for a dear Canadian friend and lover of tea!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Remember when

I mentioned that I had thirty days off and time was ticking away....I could hear the clock....tick, tock, tick, tock........and poof!  It was all gone!!

And I didn't even get to pull out my machine at all!!

But, I was able to get some major sorting, cleaning, and organizing done in the house.  With seven people, four of which are little girls that make huge messes, this really needed to be done!  I'm so glad that monkey is off my back.

Now, I'm back in classes already.  I'm hoping to pull my machine out this weekend to do the binding on TL's quilt and piece together a few blocks for some applique that needs to be done.  Maybe I'll be able to quilt that wallhanging for the living room.

In our homeschool, we're learning about the colonies.  The project that the girls need to work on is a quilt for their baby dolls.  They both sew pretty nicely.  Princess has nice small stitches that are pretty even.  Bug-a-bug has nice stitches although a little big-she is only seven after all.  They picked out their own fabric and are doing a nice job. 

If anyone knows where I can buy small thimbles I'd appreciate it.  The extra small adult ones are too big for my girls. 

Have a wonderful and quilty week!
