Five Photo Friday

16 Sep

Today we’re following Kitty Pearl’s lead and posting our five favorite photos we took this week! Selina has been very consistent about posting her favorite five photos from the week, and for the first time, I have a couple photos to share too! We don’t have five each, but collectively we do! Sharon at A Prairie Sunrise hosts Fave Five Friday weekly! How fun!
So, Here we go!

Sienna and Sunflowers

Last weekend I was lucky enough to happen upon a patch of wild sunflowers! I have always loved sunflowers and this was a perfect way to end summer!

Look how happy this little field is!  How fun!

This is a weird bug that was on my house this week. My sister is pretty great at identifying bugs and I sent this to her.  It was one of three bugs that day. I still don’t know what it is, but it was fancy!

Sara's Skirt

Selina’s oldest daughter Sara made this skirt without any help! She did a great job and was proud enough to wear it to school! Naturally, her classmates were very impressed.  This normally shy little girl has an incredible talent and a product she made herself. Great job, Sara!

Selina made this charming Churn Dash wall hanging this week with scraps, on a whim! Super cute! I love it!  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Kaleidoscope Baby Quilt

19 Aug

This is our latest listing. It features fun and bold fabrics in all of your favorite fall colors. I know it’s not a kaleidoscope quilt pattern. I named it that because all of the colors reminded me of looking into a kaleidoscope (also, I didn’t know there was a pattern with that name until I finished this one… I’m still learning!) I think this turned out very nicely.

I had a few remnants left over and I decided to use them rather than toss them away. I was unsure of what to make since the pieces were pretty small, so I just began to sew them together. I ended up with a pretty adorable pillow. Just to be safe, I need to add that a pillow should never be placed in a crib with a baby. It is purely for decoration only. The pillow could be used as a cute accent on a rocking chair, or perhaps a window seat, in the nursery.

I love the bright colors. It’s so cheerful! I think any baby would love to cozy up in this lovely blanket.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to make back-to-school gifts for my kids teachers. I’m so excited that school is starting again! Two weeks and counting!
