How I Spent My Summer Vacation ~ Part 1


Time to move back into my sewing room!

Son #2 moved out again.
I will miss seeing him all the time,
but I am happy to move my sewing mess out of my dining room.
Nutmeg is new to this sewing room thing.
She is actually missing my Matty. 

There is one piece of furniture left from my daughter's
youth bedroom set, an old storage/TV unit,
that I will fill with fabric and stuff again.
The shelf ledges used to hold her photos and trophies and treasures.
Soon they will hold my sewing notions.


Maestro is not sure what to make of this either.

We are repainting the walls and ran out of the original gallon of paint.

Time to get more paint.


They are both very curious though.

More photos coming soon!

Nutmeg Says


Nutmeg says, "Good Morning, Mommy!  
Time to work on our new quilt?
I got up before you so I decided to get started."


"Maestro says 'Me, too!'"


"Do you like new arrangement of the blocks?"


"Maestro helped!"


"These fabrics are sew nice and soft and colorful."


"What is the bag of trim scraps for?
Can I play with it?"


"We love to help you, Mommy!"
