Tuesday Time to Tackle: Another Baby Quilt

After realizing how quickly I could turn squares of flannel into baby quilts, I decided to make another one.  This time, however, instead of sewing diagonal lines across each square, I sewed hearts.  (I'm easing into "fancy" quilting!)

Also, due to fabric constraints, I made the front and back patterns different. 



I love the cute little owls!

 Thanks for two unexpected, unrelated compliments given days ago, which still make me smile.

  1. So cuddly and cute what a lucky baby to receive this.

  2. I love the little owls! So cute!

  3. I love the fabrics you chose....what size are your squares Kristi? I really need to start another one of these but want to change my standard 6" squares. They recipient is going to adore it!

    1. Thanks!

      I cut them out using an 8-1/2 inch template, but then I sewed the squares together using a 3/4 inch seam, so the squares end up to be 7 inches.

Ten Things of Thankful: Autumn Edition

It's autumn time, one of my favorite times of year.  I just couldn't leave this weekend as a one-post weekend.  

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Monday Mentions: Equate Crutches

Have you ever needed crutches? I hadn't, until a week ago.  I'm pretty sure I strained a muscle while running a half-marathon.  (That sounds kind of cool, doesn't it? I'm not actually that cool; the last time I strained a muscle it was from carrying too many shopping bags at once.) In any case, I found myself in need of some crutches. I sent my husband to the store to get some. Photo: A pair of crutches leans against a wall  Not that crutches are all that complex, but because I hadn't used any before, I wondered if I could figure out how to adjust them to fit me properly. I shouldn't have worried. John came home from Walmart with their generic store brand of crutches, complete with instructions. First, I needed to take out a long bolt that went through the hand grip. Then I needed to find my height range, push down two metal pieces, and slide the crutches until the little metal pieces came up in the hole near my height range. (Having two people for this
