Material Obsession

Monday, August 31, 2009

Lots of inspiration here. Material Obsession: Modern Quilts with Traditional Roots is what I look to when I'm feeling, well...uninspired. If I didn't enjoy quilting so much, I know I would still love flipping through these pages. The pictures are just beautiful and the colors are amazing. 

My queen sized quilt has been coming along quite nicely, thanks to this book. Hopefully I'll have some pictures soon...

We love coloring around here. It is one of the few things that keeps Odessa preoccupied for more than five minutes at a time. She especially likes it when we sit down and draw with her. Unfortunately, she cannot use a crayon unless the paper has been completely ripped off. Needless to say. . . I am finding crayon paper everywhere. As long as it keeps her busy and creative, I really don't mind.

Handmade Home

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

I can't tell you how excited I am to own a copy of Handmade Home by Amanda Blake Soule. I have been following her blog for quite sometime now and she truly is an inspiration. Each morning, after the girls have gone down for their naps, I sit down briefly in front of the computer with a cup of earl grey tea and read her lovely words and admire the photos. She has some wonderful ideas when it comes to reusing materials around the home and preserving that special bond we have with our families. I always come away in awe, not only because her words are uplifting and her projects are wonderful, but she manages to create and inspire with four young children.  

I'm really looking forward to making Odessa the sweet little pillowcase dress, as long as summer decides to stick around a little bit longer...
