My First Baby Quilt

I finally made my first ever baby quilt (for my baby! what?!)! Quilts aren’t my usual choice when it comes to sewing, but I wanted to make him something special, even if he’s got like a zillion blankets from everyone now (AMAZING ones, made by family members). Blankets are always a good thing. As you can see, we’ve got a … Continue reading “My First Baby Quilt”

I definitely didn’t really think about what I was getting into, since I had never sewn something this difficult … Continue reading “Lonetree Jacket”


What song are you most grateful for? I have a whole playlist on my iTunes literally labeled “positive mix”, because I am the bomb at mix playlists (formerly mix CDs). It has uplifting Christian and gospel (Your Love – Brandon Heath, I Can Only Imagine – Mercy Me, Overcomer – Mandisa), empowering hip hop/pop (Hall of Fame – The Script, … Continue reading “Grati-Tuesday”


What memory are you grateful for today? A little while ago my friend on Instagram posted this quote “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” -Theodor Seuss Geisel It came a few days after I should have done this Grati-Tuesday, but sometimes I really slack at these posts. Sometimes I just get … Continue reading “Grati-Tuesday”
