I've been quite negligent with my blog lately....first we had company, now we're getting ready for a big trip. That involved a bunch of last minute sewing projects, which I spent today doing, along with one of my daughters. I made a sundress, a denim skirt, the last 15 of 85 cards I needed to have done (they still need to be glued to the card stock) and a nifty pocket insert for a new bag I got that didn't have enough pockets. Now it has 6 more :-) My daughter made a pillow cover, a drawstring backback/bag, and she finished a couple of owl pillows and 20 little marble bags for the kids at a family reunion. The cards were already started, and the pillow top was already made, so we had a head start on some of the things at least! I don't need too many days like that, but my 4 years of sewing at a tailor shop using a stop watch pays off occasionally!
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing. After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now starting to design kits and patterns Some of these are now available from Keepsake Quilting also. I teach classes at a local quilt shop, The Material Girls, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
