Will the "crazyness" ever end?

I feel like I have been abandoning my blog so much lately, the last 2 weeks have been super crazy. Hopefully to be settling down soon! School is now back in session my 5yr old will start next week but there has been orientation and testing and so on.
I wanted to share a great find with everyone! I recently came across the store of Saras Art on etsy I fell in LOVE with her work, she sells her actual paintings but she has prints for those of us on a tight budget! I got these 4 prints and framed them, they will soon be hanging on my wall next to this quilt. Take the time to stop by Sara's blog and check out her "art house" such an inspiration!

I have been sewing a little, taking custom orders for resting/nap towels.

I had to get this on film, the hubby almost got this sweet baby with the weed-whacker.

More to come soon! Have a happy day! Meg

For the boys....

My little one will be starting kindergarten in a few weeks and amongst the list of items needed was a resting towel, they have gotten a lot stricter (no rugs, mats and it had to be with in a certain dimension) I found this blue towel that met the criteria and we decided it need a little something so I appliqued his name on it. He loves it, I am going to make a few more of them for the little relatives starting school as well!
I love how excited the boys get when I make them something, they always love the fat that it has been made just for them. They each got a new pair of sleep shorts. My nephew Cam choose a fun farm print. while mine went with the construction fabric! 1 yard of fabric + 2 hours = 2 happy little boys Have a Happy Friday! Meg

Let's get back to business!!!

I have been a little out of it this last month, I think it is due to all of the rainy days we have had or it could be all of that zucchini I have been eating (I have made 6 loaves of bread this week!) I decided it was time to get back into the swing of things and back to my sewing machine!

I have reduced all of the prices in my SHOP! if you make a purchase just send me a note before you pay and I will give you an extra 10% off your order!
I love Patty Young's new line Mezzanine! Here is a new tote I made yesterday in the fabrics called Secret Garden, it is lined in hot pink linen!
I have had this idea for a while now, I knew I wanted to make pillow shams with the scraps left over from the quilt along. Here is my first one, I love how it turned out I think the prairie point edging really make the pillow!
Here is the sham with out the pillow.
Here is the back view!
I love how it looks with the quilt! I would like to make 2 0r 3 more all different.

Have a happy day! Meg
