Back In Time

We got 2" of snow last week and were out of school for 3 and a half days. The boys went out to play that first morning and I snapped some pictures. Check this out:

On the left is Bigger Kid Starfish in 2009. On the right is Littler Kid Starfish last week. My husband remembered the older picture and the similarities. Same hat, position, style of shoes! Almost the exact same ages!

I'm still working on binding my Penny Sampler but that didn't stop me from picking another big project to begin. This is happening:

I'm going to work on Gypsy Wife throughout 2014. There are at least two QALs happening for this pattern right now. It's a riot of color and once again, juuuust outside my comfort zone.

I'm using fabrics pulled by The Intrepid Thread.

I can't wait to post my progress of this as we go along!

My Kind of Valentine

This is the upper right corner of my Penny Sampler. My first work with sketch applique. It's not my favorite look but was a good thing to try and is featured more than once in the Penny Sampler.

A lot of good snow here over the last few days so we're getting a surprise snowcation from school. Wake Forest University even closed for two days which never happens!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Penny Sampler Finished

This was such a stretch yourself/be open to new ideas process for me.

I go back and forth between being head over heels in love with it and just sort of being proud of myself for being adventurous. I do love the Nordika fabrics that I used throughout.

Here are a few of my favorite parts. The dala horse (where I finally felt like I knew what I was doing with paper piecing):

The spruce forest:

I'm linking this up to Show and Tell Tuesday!

After a surprise 6 day stretch of no school/work, it's back to our regular schedule tomorrow! The snow is almost gone and we're supposed to be into the 60s this week. What?!?!
