Whoops, didn't mean to take a little blog vacation there! The summer is just flying by, between adventures with the munchkin, working, and sewing. I can't believe that July is already in the double digits, and that means that school is literally right around the corner. And if the calendar weren't reminding me of that, the fact that Target already has its entire school supply section set up is a complete in-my-face reminder that it's my just about favorite time of the year: school supply season. Have I mentioned how much I like office supplies? School supplies are nearly as awesome, and it's amazing that I've managed so far to not buy a single thing in the shiny and neat school supply area at Target.

In addition to drooling over school supplies, there's definitely been a lot of sewing happening. 99.999999% is stuff I can't share, which I hate, because I like to share, but I can at least share some tease-y photos for now of what I'm up to...

And I realized that in taking a little mini blog vacay that there are a few things I can actually share that have come out, so yay for that! I'm going to try to and get those shared that this week. In the meantime, here's hoping you're having a wonderful summer in your neck of the woods!


  1. Hello Elizabeth! Enjoyed seeing your 'teasy' photos and am looking forward to seeing what they turn into!! Have a lovely week! :) PS. I adore office supplied too x

  2. I'm glad you are having fun and am looking forward to seeing what you have been making!

  3. I know exactly what you mean about loving office supplies and the back to school section. Colored pencils and crayons and graph paper and... swoon! The sneak peak photos are great teasers, and I look forward to what you can share with us later this week. :)

  4. I am a sucker for school supplies too! Just can not pass them by in the stores!
    Your projects and piecing looks fabulous!

  5. I was totally blown away that Target's aisles were already full. I so wanted to put bunches of graph paper in my cart; but refrained (this time).

    Thanks for the teasy picks, excited to see what becomes of them. Sometimes it is hard remembering what I can and can't show on my least I have lots of draft posts ready for when the time comes :-)

  6. Oh I love the teeny tiny hst's! I need to do school supply shopping too, it's so different here, and I admit I really miss Target.


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
