Checking In

Crafty pursuits have been few and far between this month. I am part of a month long Breastfeeding awareness campaign, and it is taking up all of my extra time. I am having a blast, and am continually amazed at the incredible women I am meeting everyday. So here's a big shout out to all you breastfeeding moms! What a great sisterhood to share! Oh, and YES!!! I am STILL breastfeeding.....and proud of it! :)

I like posts with pictures so I will show you a couple of projects I did at the beginning of the summer. One of my oldest friends just had a baby (I think! I should call her!!) and I made her a cowboy quilt for her baby shower.

I had so much fun with the fabric, that when I found out a close friend from high school was getting married I made her an apron out of some of the same materials. I love the cute western feel of these. I might have to explore this genre more!

I'm back with a New Look

Surprised to see me??? No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I was in a blogging rut, and decided to take an unannounced break. Sorry!!! I thought maybe sprucing things up a bit might help me feel inspired. (Now to get me a new look! It has been far to long since I have visited the salon!)

I am in complete disbelief that the summer is almost over! It has been a fun few months filled with family, friends, birthdays, and of course many crafty pursuits. I will try to post a few of the projects I have been working on. It will be good material for the days when I have finished nothing, and still want to post! For now I will give you my most recent. You may remember the fun quilted purse I did for Mother's Day (if not, I think that the pics were in the last post) well, I love that bag. It is a great "night on the town" purse, but it isn't ideal for everyday mom use. Moms need a big more storage space! I still have a little one in diapers, so I need some room, but I don't need the major diaper bag anymore. This purse is my answer. (and it is one cute answer if I do say so myself!) It has a similar shape to the quilted bag, but I added sections to the sides and bottom for added depth. I also made it reversible just for fun. What do you think???
