Needing some handwork in my life, so I got all prepped to start this project by @caterpillarcrossstitch. I like her stuff... she keeps it simple so it stays fun and relaxing. #tothineownselfbetrue #shakespeare #caterpillarcrossstitch #crossstitch

So proud of my girl for being as brave as could be during x-rays after a fall while playing tag with her brother. Thankfully they sedated her to set the bones. #longnight #shesachamp

So that our missionary son can “be here” for his youngest brother’s priesthood ordination tomorrow. #ldsmissionary #familyiseverything #thechurchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints

I gave this a try... and they turned out somewhere between “okay” and “cute!” I had another one with a blanket stitch (already given away), but straight stitch was easier and faster. If you’re short on cards, but have a supply of cardstock and some fabric scraps, then you’re set for a last minute card for any occasion. #nicetohaveoptions

Shhhh... Christmas surprise for my girl. This bunkbed is for her @americangirlbrand dolls. Bed pattern by @anawhitediy, built by my husband, painted by my DiL @mah_reeree (aka @theharperplace), and I made the bedding, including the mattresses. I love it! #dollbunkbed #anawhite

Stakes of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in our area will be holding a special fast this weekend. Please pray for good fire fighting weather, for the safety of the fire fighters and emergency responders, and that they can hold the fire lines. We invite people of all faiths to join with us in prayer today and tomorrow. #prayer #fasting #polecreekfire

We’re evacuated due to Pole Creek Fire. Praying for the safety of the emergency personnel and the people of my community. It helps me understand those who have dealt with this and are dealing with this type of stuff across our nation.

I combined directions from three different pouch instructions and tried again. I’m happy with this one, and even had minimal frustration while making it. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Now I can go back to my regular quilting with satisfaction with the pouch-making process. 😜

As soon as he heard me turn on the sewing machine, he chose his napping place. And he’s ignoring my request to move!!! 🙄😁😒 #ourpuptatertot #goldendoodle

I made two pouches today, and I can say that I don’t think I’ll ever be classified as a Bag Lady. Those zippers complicate my sewing. @itssewshannon I gave it a good try, and they won’t go to waste. The first one will be used in my church bag for my lotion and chap stick and whatever, and my daughter happily took the frog one.

Thirty-three years of marriage being celebrated today! Started with a hike with #ourpuptatertot, and now we’re heading out on the town. 😁

Introducing “Audrey and Cecil.” I don’t usually name my quilts, especially wallhangings, but this one is named for my wonderful grandma and her decades-long dear friend and neighbor. They are both in heaven now, and no doubt still enjoying their friendship there. 💞 There’s a quilting story represented here, too, but it’s more sentimental than compelling, so I won’t explain. As I came to the last part of my quilting, I had the thought to add the words. #friendsforever Here’s to friendship that spans a lifetime! #sunbonnetsue
