**A reminder that the March/April Project Hope is still going on. Please consider making String blocks for birthday quilts for children who have a parent in prison. All the information is HERE. Blocks can be sent up until April 30th (or a little later :))**
I finished these curtains last week--I love all the different blues.
Oh, and just in case you wonder what I do when I am not parenting and sewing (which is about 30 minutes from 10:45pm -11:15pm) I enjoy reading a wide variety of books. Here is the current stack next to my bed. I actually just finished 'Bittersweet' by Shauna Niequist and I really liked her style of writing-like a journal. I am currently reading 'Same Lake, Different Boat' which is about learning to include people with disabilities in our lives. Did you know that I was a Special Education major in college? Yeah, I have a huge bursting heart for people with disabilities especially those with Down's Syndrome. As you can see 'The 100 Thing Challenge' is next in line. I am a little nervous to read this book because I am afraid he is going to suggest that my life would be better if I got rid of some of my fabric!!!
Anyway, back to my bedroom....
My sister, who was visiting from Chicago this week, made me these pillows last night. Isn't she grand?! See, she knows how to put in an invisible zipper which makes her even grander.
The orange is a voile--ooh la la! Fancy. Don't worry, my kids can sniff a new pillow from a mile away and soon these four beauties will be incorporated into the world's biggest and best living room fort.
That is my 'ocean-view' from my bedroom window. (the ocean is that darker blue under the lighter blue)
I did get lots of sewing done this week--even with 11 people in the house....
Seven more HST tops. These are all baby quilts.
And last but not least, I sandwiched and pinned the airplane quilt which is now on it's way back to Michigan where it will be hand-quilted. I hope to see it again in June :)
Linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish it Up Friday!!
Have a great weekend!
I'll be back on Sunday with a special GIVEAWAY in honor of our 5th anniversary and the 7th anniversary of my grandma's death. Until then, maybe you can think of someone you know that is in need of HOPE and comfort......
