Summer Snapshot Update

(Elliot was so excited when he discovered he could cut a piece of construction paper into the shape of our state! Most mornings he eats his toast into the Oklahoma shape.)

(A cuddly quilt for a good friend's new baby.  Fabrics are "It's a Hoot" by MoMo, combined with pink minky and vintage hobnail chenille.)

(My lil' sister, Katie got engaged this month!  Aren't they cutie-pies??  And no, we're not making the wedding dress...she found an absolutely gorgeous one already!  Can't wait to see her in it!)

(Cowboy burp cloths for my sister-in-law's baby boy...this has been a summer of babies!)

(Marie wearing my tennis shoes around the house...she's my baby doll!)

(Sew Chic boutique nursing covers are now available in my etsy shop!)

(It's been a hot, hot, dry summer here...we are praying for rain and surviving by staying indoors, only venturing out to go to the splash pad or library storytime.)

(Last month we went out to visit my Great-Aunt Helen. I love this this lady and am so blessed every time we get to go visit her.  She and her brothers and sisters are a precious picture of what it looks like to grow older in the Lord with grace, faith, and lots of laughter!)

 (My kids are such goons!)

(And I don't know what I'd do without them!!)

(That's all for now, folks!)

    Jessica they are getting so big! My kids used to eat their toast like that too, how funny. Love what you have sewn. I haven't done much lately but you are good inspiration!

  2. I can't believe how big your children are getting! Where has the time gone? It's great that they have a good sense of humor.

  3. They are gorgeous! Love the quilt the colours are beautiful :)

    Like, like, like, like!!! The picture of Marie with her doggy, pacifier, and your shoes is priceless. Love it all. Love you all.

  6. Thanks for the nice little update. Your kids are getting big! How old are they now? I'd like to share some of our rain and cool weather in exchange for some of your heat. How does that sound?

  7. Thanks Alisa, they are 4 and 2 now...growing so fast! I agree...let's have a weather swap!
