As I created this silly Happy Birthday place mat for Missy pictured in the banner, I began to think, I want to create for people's homes for a conversation piece or a fun way to start the day while eating breakfast. A dear friend of mine, Jess, has asked that I make 4 place mats for her new home. She is zanier than me and my mind is a whirl with ideas!!!!!!! Roxy is loving the idea because she and I have fallen in love with the small project. Off to shop in Bellevue for some cheeky fabric I am hoping!
May your TOOsday have TOO much of something wonderFULL!

It is Missy's birthday tomorrow and creating this card reminded me how much fun a fabric scrap stash can be! I cut up Christmas presents from my Seuss Grinch line and gifted them to Ms. Ruby the Birthday pin-up and my sweet DOD couple. I always enjoy creating a landscape from random fabrics and this theme of the farmland is related to Missy and my brother living on horse acreage. Roxy is ready but I reminded her that taxes are first.....boring but necessary :).
Speaking of Ru......by, Noah's Rhu......barb pie is a yummy treat and that is begging me to have with coffee. Anyone want to join me this morning?
Happy Monday! Em

Can you imagine my giggly delight when I walked in to Noah's new classroom and the 2 bins of fabric scraps were present!!!!? I have had so much fun creating little ditties for sweet Kailanie's doll and a card for my father thanking him for making the drive with me to Seattle. Stories upon stories! Roxy is having so much fun with our move and I look forward to catching up with you all!
Missy sent me texts throughout the morning as she bound Hannah's quilt. Her first quilt she has created and she is hooked! So much fun creating this special quilt for little Hannah who lies in a hospital bed with her fate in God's hands.
It was an emotional weekend as Missy and I created this quilt knowing the grieving mom who will wrap her little 6 year old in it. Hannah was hit by a car on the freeway crossing the street to play with a neighbor. CELEBRATING a community who is praying for Hannah and Missy's intro to this wonderful hobby we call quilting!

HI!!!!! We made it to Lake Forest Park and are moved in, almost......Busy week but we have Noah in school, Roxy has a new platform with LOVE graffitied all over it and a little project I started last night for my dad. He made the drive with me and although the flowers are morning glories, I am asking them to be the cherry blossoms that were intoxicating on the campus of UDUB when we visited.
I should be back on track with time with you all in the next couple of week and cannot wait until I hug Miki and LeeAnn in person! Rebels, here I come in a couple of weeks!!!!
New job...hoping to be a school nurse and things look good. No call after hours and be able to dote on my son when he is home...AHHHHHHHHHH!
Please remember, I am no longer at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can please change the address to Legendlime@hotmail.com. And do you know what this addresses? A favorite Mustang car color of course! When I made the switch from the station wagon to the sports car....Oh how fun life is CELEBRATING the nuances of what makes our hearts richer!
