Riley Blake Designs - National Parks

When I was little we moved a LOT. I've actually moved over 30 times in my life and I'm in my 30's....so if that says anything. One of my favorite things about moving was seeing our country! I have so many fond memories of the Redwoods to Mesa Verde to the ocean. I haven't been able to go on many road trips with my kids, but we do live in the mountains and we love going on hikes and making trips to the lakes by us! I have a great love for our National Parks and love that Riley Blake made a line showcasing them!


Back to School Tour Day 7

What a week! Did your kids wear me-made all week, a mix, or no me-made at all? Mine was definitely a mix! Are you still sewing your kids school clothes or did you get it all finished before school started? If you're still sewing, make sure to check out all the bloggers this week to get a lot of great inspiration for back to school outfits!


Back to School Tour Day 6

How was your first week back to school?? Ours went really smoothly! No one was late, everyone arrived at school fully clothed and hair done and with everything in their backpacks! It was a definite win. That ended after school yesterday when Aevs took a spill on her longboard and we spent the next few hours at the dentist and then at the doctors (send all the good vibes you can that her tooth is okay!), and she will for sure be staying home all next week, but that happened AFTER school, so I'm not counting it in our amazing first week back!
Anything eventful happen your first week back?


Back to School Tour Day 5

Can you believe it's Friday?! My kids are wrapping up their first week of school and they're really loving it! Reading has always been one of the hardest things to get my kids to do and my Paisley has already read 3 chapter books this week! The new year is seeming to bring new changes and I'm so excited for them! Did your kids start school this week?


Michael Miller - Sew Fruity Mini Quilt Tutorial

I just love bright colors and Michael Miller's new line, Sew Fruity, is chalk full of them! They make me happy and I couldn't resist making a pineapple mini quilt wall hanging so I get that little extra happiness whenever I see it in my sewing room wall!

Back to School Blog Tour Day 4

We're on to day 4 of the Back to School tour and I am loving all these looks! Have you started sewing back to school clothes yet? What is your plan? I love making capsules for my kids, but their likes are so broad, that that usually fails! LOL I'll still be trying to make a few pieces for my kids and we'll see how it goes!


Back to School Tour 2019 Day 3

We're already half way through the week! My kids have been loving their teachers and classes so far and I've been able to get a bit of cleaning done and hoping to get to sewing more this week! Our summer was far more jam-packed and crazy than it ever has been before and I didn't get to sew nearly as much as I was hoping to. I've been looking forward to getting back to it!
How was your summer? Did you get to sew as much as you hoped?



Riley Blake Designs - Under the Canopy

I have been so excited about this line! It's Riley Blake Designs Under the Canopy by Citrus & Mint Designs. It has so many adorable animals: cheeta's, sloths, flamingo's, etc. and I LOVE the colors! I couldn't wait to make a quilt from this line!

Back to School Tour 2019

I can't believe summer is already over. Our summer was incredibly jam packed and I'm honestly kind of excited for the school year to start and to get some me time!

There is a lot of inspiration on this tour along with a giveaway so make sure to follow along!
