Today I'm over at Kiki and Company with a fun summer activity involving painting and bubbles. It's brilliantly entitled "Bubble Painting." Go here to check out the fun I had with my buddy Ryan making this fun art. Also look around at some of the other great posts in Kiki's series- she is having all kinds of fun over there!
Also make sure to check out Jacey's blog to see the amazing gifts she sent me last week! If you've been around a while, you may remember this mini quilt I made a while back. It was actually sent to her, and now she has paid me back in the greatest way. I seriously love my new pincushion, fabric basket and sewing kit. Can you believe I haven't been using a pincushion for most of my sewing career? What in the world?
She really picked the greatest fabrics for me. (Her picture) Thanks so much Jacey!!
I feel so behind in sharing things I've been making with you! I finished a quilt recently that I hope to get photographs of in the next couple days. I'm also really excited to be making my own version of my buddy Maureen's West Elm inspired pillow:
Isn't is crazy gorgeous? I can't wait to put my own spin on it. (See I told you I can't get away from those damn chevron patterns!)
The whole project has inspired me to give our living room a bit of a makeover, so today I made curtains and I hope to make two or three more new pillow covers soon as well.
Quilt wise, I'm really close to finishing a gift quilt and then I'm itching to finish up the scrappy +&x. That one is always getting put on the back burner because it's just for me, but I WILL finish before fall is here!
On the kids' clothing front, the next installment of Film Petit is in the works already and we are pumped about this one. Just chuffed to bits.
Do you ever finish a blog post and think to yourself, "Wow, I really used way too many exclamation points on this one. How obnoxious... Oh well!!!"
Yeah, me neither.
