Design Wall Monday


Here is a project that I have been slowly working on since May.  I got sidetracked with graduation, then dealing with the miscarriage, but now I am back on track again, I hope.

This is a commission piece, a baby quilt for a lady from church who asked me to make it for her niece.  I needed to order more of the white fabric as I did not quite figure the right amount, so imagine white poka-dot printed fabric between the blocks.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Z Moments: Princess Down..I repeat, Princess Down..

pre-princess almost 2 years ago

My daughter has informed me that hence forth she shall be addressed as "Princess Ziona."

I am not quite certain how it happened exactly, but between the layers of pink on pink , the fluffy dresses, jewels, tiaras, my daughter turned into a...Princess.  I was one of those deluded mothers-to-be who specifically requested no pink for baby showers, who thought that she could avoid the too girlie world of princesshood, but alas I was wrong.  When a girl is a princess down in her soul, there is not much a mommy can do about it but try not to overly sigh, and keep eye-rolls to a minimum.

But, Princess or not, she still has to take a nap!

The Thrill of Winning...


A few weeks ago I went to a bunko night at my LQS.  I had never played bunko before and frankly gathering with women made me nervous, but I needed to get out of the house.  Much to my surprise, I won the most amount of games that night!  For this I won a bundle of fabric containing 7 Halloween FQ's!  I also purchase 1.5 yds of the white print and 1 yd of the Green watercolour print (below) to help me make something.  We have no Halloween or fall d├ęcor for that matter around our house, so I am excited to get working on a particular project--a pattern testing.

The Things We Love..



Here is my finished Butterfly block, paired along with the first block, it has been packed up for mailing to Jennifer, the next person in the traveling quilt process.  The first block (the bird) started with Yvonne; the themes for her traveling quilt is "things we love".  My daughter told me I should make a butterfly when I asked her what she thought!
