I'm taking a little break from the shop to enjoy some other things around the home. I have about a ka-trillion works in progress right now......like organizing, painting and sewing projects. I'm also just enjoying the daily routines with my family more, like walking to the park on a sunny day with the little ones (which are few and far between these days!) and making more dinners than usual....it's fabulous!
Here's a peek at a couple things keeping me busy.
I finished up my Laundry Day embroidery a few months ago (finally!) and now I'm turning into something....(finally!)
I had cut a bunch of scraps a few months ago and so it was easy to just start laying them out and get moving on this. I added some new favorites too!
Originally, I had just put the finished embroidery in a frame. It looked cute, but it was calling out for some quilting and to become something more!
My plan is for a pillow. I'll be putting it in Ava's room and guarding it with my life.
This one on Pinterest got me going!
It's fun mixing and matching the little 'bows' together....finding the right combinations.
I can't wait to get this one finished...it's super simple. Thanks to Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches for clarifying the 'how-to' for me!! :)
Oh, and here's a perfect excuse I found to use my cutest, newest little pyrex dish! A mini loaf pan! It made making and eating the Banana Bread that much more delish! mmmm. :)
And with that, I wish you all a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to do some enjoying......it really makes life better. ;)
