Loads going on!

I have been extremely busy this summer. Sorry for the inactive blog. I really have had little time to sew or do anything. Also have found that we are moving. I have found an apartment that we are going to move into and we will see if it all works out. So please pray for me that I can get into the apartments before school starts in August.

This August is going to be a busy month for me. I have lots of cleaning, purging, and a huge garage sale planned. We have to move the week before school starts and its an hour away. Not 100% sure yet, that is where I will settle. It all depends on if everything is meant to be, I believe if it is then things will just fall into place and I wont have a problem moving like I keep thinking I will.

Aliya starts Kindergarten and I will go back to school full time. Taking a whopping 16 credit hours. Not going to be fun but it has to be done.


Hope you all are having a lovely summer! Also check back on the first as I will have a surprise for you! Happy quilting!

Last day of school!!

I’m so proud of Aliya this year, she accomplished a lot in Pre-k.

Next year she will be starting Kindergarten and will be ready for it.

Two of her main accomplishments this year were: learning to read (which she does very well for a 5 year old) and she learned to tie her shoes all by herself!

We are so proud of her!

We decided to make a little gift for Aliyas teachers. This is my first year with a school age kid so I wasn’t sure what to make the teachers. I did some looking online for some ideas and saw that soaps, lotions, and gift cards were all pretty common. Since they were probably going to get tons of those we decided to be a little different.

These pouches were made using Keyka Lou’s patterns. Her patterns are well written and easy to understand.


Being the first time I made these I like the way they turned out.

I hope her teachers like them. We really appreciate all that they have done for Aliya this year. I know that Aliya will miss them very much! I will miss her picking her up from school and hearing about her fun day and all the new songs she learned.

Also be sure to check out my friends blog. She is hosting a fun “Fresh Sewing Day!”
