It's been a productive day

I had a bit of time to myself today. I had somethings that needed mended and those are finished, YEAH!

This little project is one I started with my granddaughter Evie, the day before Easter. She picked out the fabric, the thread and set up her name just how she wanted it on my embroidery machine. We had a lot of fun doing it. We ran out of time to finish it, so I told her I would get it done and send it to her. I left a blank white label so she can write on it. She told me when we were making it that she wanted to write on the back. That's my girl, she wants to document her creativity! She can write whatever she wants on the back.

I worked on my Geese in the Forest blocks. I'm really behind, but now I'm on a roll. I sorted my scrap fabrics by color, which will help in sewing these together a little faster. I really like the paper's so precise!

I also cut up the rest of my freezer paper into 8.5 x 11 inch sheets. That will help me in the log run, too.

Well, I've got to get to the store, I need fruit and rice cakes. LOVE both of those items...staple foods around here! Oh gosh, I got such a good deal on blackberries!!! I should buy bunches and freeze some. They are delicious!


  1. What a sweet project to do with a granddaughter! I'm glad to see that she is documenting.

    Isn't it wonderful to have a little free time to do some things for yourself?

  2. You're a great grandma to take the time to do this with your granddaughter!

  3. Gals, thanks for commenting. It was SO much fun to do this with my granddaughter!! Not only that, when she received it in the mail she was shreiking with joy! She called me and was so excited.

    Maybe I've found a sewing partner!
