Summer News and Sale!

Hi all! I hope everyone is having a great summer vacation! So far, I have been really busy, unfortunately, the kids, are bored out of their minds. We had all these plans for the summer that have now gone down the drain since my husband's injury. So, since going out of town is probably out of the question {we'll know a bit more once his cast comes off next month but so far, we stay put} we decided to "redo" Natalie's room, and for Claire, since she just got a new room makeover a few months ago, we will be working on school stuff. Natalie went back and fourth on what kind of decor she wanted, this was very painful. So, the new plan, is to decorate the room with everything she likes, "Natalie's world" per say {lol} and we are starting with her bedding, after looking at about 50 bedding sets online {I know, I know, what am I doing looking at that stuff online if I can make it for her, read the rest of the story} she decides she wants ME to make her one, with "cool fabrics" ... well, after looking at HUNDREDS of "cool fabrics", we decided to go with a quilt, nothing very fancy, just a regular patchwork quilt with cute fabrics. OK, went through my fabrics, found quite a few we could use, narrowed it down to around 11 prints ... started cutting, and then it hit me, Natalie can sew straight lines! So, she did, I had her put together the pieces in rows, and then I sewed all the rows together... over 200 pieces of fabrics and about 4 hours later, we had the top of her quilt! Tomorrow, after all my "work projects" we will be working on the batting and the backing. I'm so proud of her, I think this is going to be a great and inexpensive way for us to spend our time this summer, at least for a few weeks! lol
