Sorry I haven’t been around much this past week. I’ve been spending every spare moment (so pretty much whenever Brynlee is sleeping) working on this giant project!
I’ve had it in my head to make a denim quilt for a few years now, but never really had the motivation, or enough jeans to get it done. But recently I had the idea to make this as a gift for someone and begged every member of my family to donate their old jeans to me and WHO-HOO! I finally got it done! It definitely helped having a time crunch, it needed to be done by this Thursday and I just got all the jeans on our camping trip the other weekend so I really had to buckle down and get it done! This is by far the largest patchwork quilt I’ve made, I usually stick to baby sized quilts since they don’t take up so much time, but I have to admit, I’m a little hooked and am looking forward to making more quilts in the future.
Aside from that, we had a pretty low key weekend, Saturday was spent just relaxing and spending time together. Brynlee loves it when her Daddy is home and really soaks up every moment getting to be with him.
On Sunday we got some much needed yard work done, even though it was like a million degrees outside we really needed to rip out all of our old dead plants from our garden to prepare for fall/winter planting this week. And our front yard was looking mighty sad with all the remains of my poor burned up flowers from early this summer. I have yet to find a plant that can take the July/August heat in our from yard. It get nearly full sun and not even succulents stand a chance…
Oh and I have a little proud mama moment, Brynlee drew her first Mickey this weekend! She was so excited and so was I! She’s been practicing and practicing her circles and finally put them all together. Now it’s nonstop Mickey drawing in this house.
So anyway, onto the week and the beginning of Fall. I am really looking forward to some cooler weather over hear and of course for the PSL. I’m really excited to try it now that they’ve changed the recipe to include real pumpkin, I’ve heard it’s so much better.
I hope you all had fantastic weekends too!
Happy Fall Friends!!!
