Our busy life with an amazing veterinarian and cattleman, a gardening, quilting and history loving wife and mother, a creative perfectionist violinist, a spunky and kind epileptic princess, a sweet yet wild little man, and the most mellow and happy babe, on a joyful 1/2 acre living and loving in a beautiful mountain valley.

purple and white
One of my projects today - make something out of this mess to have my daughter blessed in on Sunday. On the right is a bolt of nice pima cotton from my mother in law's mother - old but fantastic. Next to it is some quilted cotton left over from a gift I am making for my best friend's wedding this weekend. The purple at the top is left over from the blessing dress I made my 10 year old (yes, I kept it!) and the fabric below that, is left over cute stuff with purple embroidered flowers from my 7 year old's blessing dress. The white fabric on the left is eyelet cotton also left over from my 7 year old's blessing dress. It is funny how sentimental I am. Of course I kept the fabric for 10 years not used from the other projects so I could make my last daughter's dress from her two big sisters' fabric and be quite the sentimental mother. I know, I am pitiful.
