Design Wall!

I feel like I have fallen off the face of the earth.  I can't believe I didn't blog anything for two months.  Our life kept going, in fact a little more quickly than I was ready for.  It seemed as if everything kept coming and coming and we were just trying to keep up.  With Christmas coming up I know things are going to get even more busy.  
I am excited to share what I have been working on!  I am in the process of making two matching twin sized bed quilts.  Here are my fabric choices.  

The design is pretty simple, nine patches (shown here) and the plan is to have a green border, then a white border.  Hopefully some fun, funky bright pink embellishment in the border.  Do you love my design wall?  I love hanging my projects on the banister.  They don't get as wrinkled this way!

There is always a lot of dancing and dressing up as I sew and I get easily distracted because they are just so dang cute!  (Please notice their fat quarters on the floor, I think they have as much as a stash as I do.)

One more thing I wanted to share with you.  Recently we went to Disneyland with our cute little family as well as some extended family.  We had a great time, I personally love Disneyland!   

This girl does too.

It was this little one's first time at Disneyland, and she loved it for the most part.  

 Splash Mountain, Matterhorn and Tower of Terror she did not.  I promise we are not bad parents, we tried and tried to get her to stay off Tower of Terror but she didn't want to stay behind.  Even after we said it would be scary she was adamant about going with us.  She was a little freaked out by the time she stepped on the ride.  During the ride she was screaming louder than anyone else and I'm pretty sure she thought she was going to die.  She made it through and even got some sour gummy worms for trying to be brave.

We took a side trip to the beach and even though my husband likes Disneyland he would much rather spend time at the beach.  

Check back soon, I promise I won't be away for long!


  1. those girls are so cute! fat quarters all over the floor - that is what it looks like when I have a visit with my granddaughter. We will see her for Thanksgiving and I had to promise to bring my sewing machine with me to "help" her finish a doll quilt she started last year - somehow I think I will be doing the work - she is 9.

  2. So today -its Design Railing for You! Great that you could get away. The Blog is still here, But I missed seeing you posting through the time I was still in the McCall's Contest.
