A Day In Life
Happy Summer, my dear Friends! I hope you have been well! One reverberating question that has been playing in my mind is where the time has gone! It seemed like it was yesterday I picked Miss Baby from school on the last day of her school year back in May, and now we are way into the month of July!
I have really enjoyed having Miss Baby home this summer although she claims I work her harder than her teacher at school! Haha! I think she is probably right, but I am certainly not keeping score.
Miss Baby is ever inquisitive and happy to go along with my impulsive outings. We were at a lavender farm where shortly after this picture was taken, my partner-in-crime left me out in the field cutting lavender sprigs while she enjoyed herself in the shade of the farmhouse porch.
Lavender is the thing on Miss Baby’s bed at the moment. She even made herself a pillowcase because she thought the one I had out for her was too bland!
A Day in Quilt Life
Quiltingwise, I have kept a demanding pace. But I am not complaining.
A couple of weeks ago, the great and gracious Pat Sloan had me on her podcast! It was so much fun chatting a little with her about machine quilting, and stitching with Miss Baby. If you missed the show, you can listen to the show here.
Besides being excited to see my magazine quilts being published,
Rainbow Room in Quilty (July/August 2018)
Playground Plaza in Fons and Porter Easy Quilts Fall 2018 (click here for kits)
I have been doing a bit of hand applique for my Celebrating Mary Brown quilt. I am using only Lynette Anderson fabrics for this quilt.
I am also a designer included in the Splendid Sampler 2 this year!! Are you sewing along with the Splendid Sampler since its launch about a month ago? It is a great sew-along especially if you want to challenge yourself to new skills and techniques. Here is a picture of my Block #3. Follow me on Instagram (handle: ivory_spring) to see my other blocks. Due to time constraint, I haven’t been able to update my blog as often as I would like, but if you need anything from me, just send me a direct message to me via Instagram. I normally respond much quicker on Instagram.
That’s all for now, My Friends! I would love to hear from you what you’ve been up to this summer.
p.s. I have MORE fabric boxes to give away — if you can even believe it!! But it is what it is, haha. I will post on the giveaway soon!
