Thank you so very kindly to everyone who bought a quilt kit this past week. I'm going to be shipping everything on Tuesday and Wednesday of this coming week. We are almost completely done cutting the solid fabrics and then they will be out the door. As I've mentioned, more will be coming next month or so. Fabric continues to become available and I continue to scoop it up. Happy work, this stuff! I love it!

We have a busy weekend working in the yard, trying to rescue it from the endless winter that we Portlanders are just now starting to come out of. The sun is threatening to not last the weekend so I want to take advantage of it while I can. Wishing you all some very lovely days, and happy almost-May. XOXO, a



Always such gorgeous colours and textures when I stop by here. And what glorious blooms. Spring perfection. I hope the sunshine lasts a little longer for you. CJ xx

I'm one of those who were fortunate this time around - thank you for putting the kits together - hoping you're able to get some rest.
Have a glorious awesome weekend!

This endless winter it causing so much trouble everywhere! Have a nice weekend!

I really enjoy your blogs! You're amazing, so clever, and take beautiful pictures! We were in Newberg for the Camellia Festival, on that windy, windy weekend, but such a pretty town. Oregon is so pretty, we live out of Sacramento & enjoyed our trip..and we got to see the tulips at Wooden Shoe!
Thank you for sharing your world with us! Blessings to you and your family! xo

We're also just getting out of Winter. We can still see just a tiny bit of snow around some ditches in the country. Nice to see the lakes defrosted with many ducks and geese on top of the water. I'm anxious for Spring. You've been working quite hard, blessings to you and thank you!

Absolutely lovely! I look forward to reading your blog everyday ;-)

lovely pinks in that one...my goodness.

Love that dogwood! I've seen it for the first time in my life last May in Austria and it was just like on your picture! So wonderful!
Alicia, may be you'll tell someday how you storage your fotos? You have so many and obviously take them almost every day, but how you keep them? Do you print some, may be in some books (like blurb etc)? I just can't figure out what to do with them, they just lie in folders month by month, but we rarely look through them to be honest. And I'm doubt should I keep them all, and not just the best ones.

Thank you for your beautiful blog and hand sewing. I have been reading your blog since my first daughter Ella was born. Now I have four children and we have all enjoyed reading your story over the years. Thank you x

What wonderful quilt top kits. I recently had a new grandon so I am on a pacifier clip and matching zip pouch kick for my shop.
I love how versatile working with fabrics can be.
Some day I would love to make up kits for my giddy-up tote for little girls that has the most darling horse head on it. Just need to figure out how to write instructions 😉
You are such an encouragement to me!

Lovely post. That's so wonderful about Birthmother's Day!

Love the pics of your garden. How do you keep the ivy out? I hope you can keep it out. I have a large garden and a huge yard, and the ivy has devastated the native plants. Some of the plants have been growing for 14 years. I'm still trying to get the ivy out.
