Sunday Lately : Wk. 4


Updating
Trying to work on updating my nursing appeal, that I will need in about a month. Thankfully I have found some awesome patterns, that would work well for nursing a little one, but without flashing the whole world
.
Reminding
Myself to not let my anxiety get the better of me. After I had Nora I suffered from postpartum anxiety. And after talking with my doctor, I think we have a plan to help me lessen the anxiety and allow me to enjoy the first few weeks at home with a newborn (which I didn't get with Nora).

Needing
To finish one more book for this month.

Amusing
Nora is quite amusing when she is in a happy go lucky mood, which is most days. And she tolerates momma when I just need to lie down mid-morning.

Being
Present to Nora has been a challenge the last few weeks, since I'm in the homestretch of this pregnancy, I'm pretty worn most mornings after doing a few minor chores around the house. But I know this is just a small window of time and Nora seems to be doing pretty well, she just has learned that momma can play, but it's most likely going to happen while I'm stretched out on the couch and she is driving cars over my belly.

  1. Playtime is playtime. As long as she's getting some extra one-on-one time with her sweet Momma, I don't think Nora cares how it happens. Kiddos understand more than we think they do. She knows change is coming and I'm sure she'll be amazing with a new babe in the house.

  2. It seems like all of us are reminding ourselves to take a minute and think about the good things instead of worrying about all the bad. Can't wait to meet your new little!

Mini Modern Maples Cushion Cover | Scrap Project 6

Ahh, I just love fall! Hands down my favorite season, especially in the UP. There are a few leaves starting to change color and I'm so excited. I'm looking forward to a color tour in a few weeks and really hope I have a few quilts done so I can take some quilt in the wild photos. So with fall rolling in, I figured I would make a fun little fall inspired cushion cover. And since I've been on small scale sewing kick, I thought a mini modern maple cover was just what I needed for my living room. Plus, lets face it this was just a perfect reason to dig through the scrap bins and use up those small little scraps. My mini maple block finishes at 3 inches and when added to a mini 9 patch block it makes for a lovely scrappy cushion cover. For the quilting a did a orange peel design and while a little wonky, I love it! Lately I've been at a lose as to what I want to quilt on my quilts, so this was a nice change. I quilted this cover on my Janome HD9. This bab

Bonnie & Camille Sampler Quilt | A Finished Quilt

so last year i taught a BOM at my local quilt shop. i had already made up the sample quilt, so i needed to make blocks along with my students. well thank goodness for a couple of Bonnie & Camille layer cakes just waiting for the perfect project. the blocks are for the Vice Versa Sampler Quilt from AnnaMarie Chaney ( here is my original quilt ) but this time i decided use the Bonfire Sampler (also from AnnaMarie Chaney) setting for this set of blocks. i love those big HST they just work for this quilt! i just love this quilt and always knew it would be given to someone. i just didn't know who that someone would be. well as i was quilting this up, it finally occurred to me who i would send this along too. when we moved, one of the girl's church grandmas was rather heartbroken that we were moving. so i sent this to her as a surprise and when it showed up she called telling me that this just made her day! and that right there is why i quilt!

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye
