Summer is Over

Well at least at our house. When dh goes back to work life returns to normal.  I get to homeschool my boys and play on the computer more as we aren't so busy.  Haven't figure if playing on the computer more is a good thing or bad thing...anyway, thought it was time to post again.  I have been sewing, though not all of it quilting.

First up are some wonky log cabin squares I made for a contest at a local quilt store.  I had lots of fun.  I had scraps from Lucky's scrap box and it was fun and mindless.  Quilt Dad is where I got the idea.  If you haven't been be sure to check out his site. 

  I haven't decided if I want to do a quilt with them or just hang them in my boys room which is done in primary colors. Decisions, decisions.

And last is my efforts at marketing my skills.  School is about to start around here and lots of little kiddos, go to public school where they have naps.  With naps comes napmats made of vinyl and well I can't stand the thought of napping on vinyl can you? So I whipped up some simple nap mat covers, of my own design and am marketing them on craigslist.  Here is the pink girly one.


  1. Those mat covers are wonderful and so much more comfortable than vinyl.

    Your wonky square looks fab too.

  2. That is so clever of get all sticky and sweaty on vinyl....and sooo cute.

    Love the squares as well....

  3. When you sell the covers do you sell the mat with it? I only ask because I have one in the plastic still that I bought like 3 year ago and never used. If you want it, let me know and I will bring it to church.


Thanks for dropping by and sharing!
