Were you near the path of totality yesterday to watch the eclipse? Here in Franklin, TN, we were on the edge of the path so our view wasn’t quite as exciting as it was in Nashville, but it was pretty cool nonetheless. Sam’s office was empty, so he came home for lunch and we watched… Continue reading Total Eclipse of the Heart
This year I’m participating in my first-ever round robin. The idea is fun: start with a square or strip for the center, then pass it around a group of quilters, each adding to it (borders or blocks or whatever they want) and passing it on to the next person each month, until it makes it… Continue reading Round Robin Quilt: Round 5

Amelia is 10 months old! Another month has flown by and I can’t believe my little baby is inching ever closer to a year old. She is learning new tricks at lightning speed these days, and I’m so glad I’ve kept up with these monthly check-ins to see how much she’s changed! Likes: dancing to music,… Continue reading Ten Months with Amelia
