I finally finished my brother and sister-in-love's...ahem...Christmas gift, a Viking-Packer quilt I call "Black and Blue" division.
Here's the label. You can also see the fun binding. It's actually from a Mardi Gras collection.
We celebrated the end of D's preschool career. He loves school.
We had our first garage sale.
I made Niels a money bag (apron).
I finished a quilt for a sweet girl my friend was fostering.
With a coordinating pillowcase.
And drawstring bag.
I was published again, and very pleased to learn that my story is the very first one!
We watched a lot of World Cup soccer/voetbal.
We gave up on the first lawn we put in two years ago. A freak windstorm swooped in and stole our seed so it was one big garden of weeds.
Less than twenty minutes after the new seed was sprayed, a freak flash flood hit. Sigh...
We are now on our third attempt at a backyard.
We've done lots of science experiments.
I made a baby quilt for friends in Wisconsin.
And attempted free motion quilting.
I discovered how to make homemade Mama Chia.
I designed a block for NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg's star block challenge.
I hit some early sales to get D's school uniforms ready.
I completed my first applique project.
And my second.
And my third and fourth.
I stumbled onto the BEST garage sale. A man was setting up a sale because his wife passed away (that part's not so great). She was an avid sewer and had totes and totes of fabric and notions. I got first nibs and came away with all this for $35!
Here's a better look at the stack of fabric. That bottom piece alone is five yards!
I made D some space-theme pajamas.
And then, because he asked nicely, I made him another pair.
And lastly, I supervised a lot of workbook time, aka "earn tech time."
Hopefully July will see a few more blog posts, but then, it is summer, so I wouldn't be too sure!
