It's still all mainly about the Melo (look whose picture is prominently placed at the top of this page!), and what we're in to, up to, and trying to do, and all of the other good bits in between.

back to blogging

Yeah, facebook kinda took over for a while. . . . that and we were not spending any time in the basement, so alas no computer/blogger access. But, I've decided to get on the bandwagon again and maybe even liven up the place a bit.

For now, here's a sneak peek at what I hope to work on next (once I finish my dang rainbow circle quilt!!):

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

If I don't get a chance to make the doll, maybe I'll send the rainbow quilt instead . . . . Anyways, either way I've got to get my butt back in gear on crafting. Thankfully, Erica's visit (aside from being AWESOME) brought about a renewed love of knitting, further fostered by yummy new yarn. I need to hit Chrissie up to plan a weekend away since I've fallen off my make-it-for-christmas plans and there's only 8 months left!!!

Finished Crayon Rolls for the Girls

I love how these turned out, and it was so much making a rainbow with fabrics! The project was from Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts and I am hoping to use some of my left over rainbow stripping for another project, the Coin Quilt, from the same book--using the new sewing machine!

A crafty Saturday!

Our friend Greg came down Friday night for a visit along with his beautiful chocolate lab, Bella. After our last Saturday Dragon Boat practice (thank goodness), I headed out to meet up with Chrissie for the going-out-of-business sale at the Let's Quilt shop (yet another victim of the Chrissie-Kat quilt shop curse, it seems). Then Chrissie took me to a wonderful, awesome place that will be my mom's second favorite place in the NW: Monticello's. It is incredible - a wonderful cafe, lovely places to sit, and an amazing collection of various bis and baubles. I cannot wait to go back with my mom and Chrissie!

Chrissie then took me to another great place, Knittn' Kitten, a craft thrift store. They had bamboo double points in an assortment of sizes for only $2!!!!!! And buttons, and fabric, and yarn - oh my! Erica - you must come visit soon, there are so many crafty things to see and do!!
