i haven’t really had much sewing motivation lately. between trying to make a go of caking, end of year school stuff, and constant sicknesses, i just haven’t gotten around to it. then one day, an old friend called to ask me about making a chemo quilt for the daughter in law of a mutual friend […]
rainbow unicorn cake.
while we were on one of our fall leaves hike, i informed anna that i wanted a rainbow unicorn cake for my birthday. well, as my birthday came closer, she (with a little help) made it happen. i helped with some of the difficult bits, like leveling the cake, getting a smooth frosting base, and […]
an epic unicorn pillow and other random finishes.
over the summer, i had a bit of a lull in my quilting mojo. i’m not sure why. coronavirus fatigue? tired of looking at my same old fabrics? grumpy from losing my dedicated quilt room? some of all? either way, i decided to look for a paper pieced project to jump start things. they give […]
rainbow alternate ending quilt.(ie: new favorite quilt).
so. one other benefit of stationary living is that i have a permanent quilting space. i was able to quilt more than i thought on the road, but it was a bit of work to set up and break down all the time. and, there was no room for fabric storage, so i always bought […]

rainbow dash cake
as i previously mentioned, anna decided on a rainbow dash cake. obviously, that meant the inside should be rainbow layers. obviously. the crumb coated cake is always pretty too. rainbow dash. on a cloud. as requested. it was also explained to me that i was NOT to put the blue border around the bottom of […]
last week. on thursday. this kid turned four. it seems very impossible. she’s quite a little character. very independent. and stubborn. she is a super little artist. and loves to read. and pretend. and play with princess dolls. and baby dolls. and hoard piles of random toys into the hidden corners of the house. we […]
had a rainbowrific photoshoot with hazel today. she turned a whopping 6 weeks yesterday, but was in no mood to commemorate the ocassion.
