Sorry about the other day. Even though the boy is pulling wipes out of the wipe container one at a time while I write this, things are so much better over here now. My parents came and went, and everything is back to normal crazy instead of overwhelming crazy. My mom and I worked our guts out, ate great food, and stayed up way too late. Thank goodness for grandpa who took Nic on bike rides and entertained him (and followed him up and down the stairs), who met the boys for lunch at school, and helped out with school pick-ups/drop-offs. I have fantastic parents, it's true. (Thanks, guys.) Aside from the BYU game, it was a perfect weekend.
Anyhow, something I have been meaning to post about for months now, is this cute girl,
her equally cute blog,
and this completely adorable bag she made me, inspired by the sugar rush quilt from my book. Isn't it lovely?
If you haven't read Kristyne's blog, you are in for a treat. She is witty, her photography is gorgeous, and she sews at lightning speed. I hope she doesn't kill me for borrowing a whole bunch of photos to show you... also, her Farmer's Wife blocks are to die for. You've been warned.
In an attempt to use up some of her stash, Kristyne started Project Simplify and sewed her way through my book and donated the quilts to many different charities and causes. (She has now started sewing the quilts as minis, and already I'm dying.) Here are a few of her projects, all from her stash, might I add. Impressive.
Guess this whole post is really meant to be a big fat thank you to Kristyne. Thank you for making my heart happy every time a new post showed up in my reader, for your clever posts, and for choosing my silly little book to do so much good. And to all of you, like Kristyne, who make my job what it is and make beautiful projects from my book and patterns. I know I've said it before, but it just makes me so happy.
Cheesy, yes, but true.
