Red and white


My goal this summer with Steve gone was to make sure I got to the gym most days, give the kids a fun summer and learn to make some fun crafts. I have never been much into sewing. So this summer I told myself my sewing machine was going to live in my dining room. That way I could really play around with it while being with the kids. My kids have always like to be right next to me. So while I watch them play wii, with friends and even watching some fun tv I have been sewing. One of my favorite kinds of quilts are the ones with the triangles so I thought I would try a small project and it was so fun! I would love to one day make a quilt this style for Madi's bed.
This red apple fabric is my favorite this summer. I used some in my quilted project above and made Madi some cute capri pants with a matching ribbon for her hair.

I have wanted to know how to quilt also....you must share a tutorial...I have a sewing machine and haven't even begun to use it. I really need to. I bought it last Fall and have only played a couple times on it.

I do plan on making the fabric neckless this weekend...I can't wait!

Have a Happy 4th with the kids!

The capris are so cute. I think you are doing an amazing job with the kids and getting lots accomplished. I am so proud of how far you have advanced in the last 6months of running. Whatever will your next New Years resolution be?? Full marathon : )!

Good for you ~ I do a little sewing but have never taken on a big project. I really should do more with it and get out of my comfort zone.

You're so talented.
