Quilts for Oso Update

Last month, I know you heard of the horrible mudslides here in Washington.

And then I posted about the wonderful woman behind the blog, Layers of Hope, who is running a quilt drive for the victims of the mudslides!  Well, I had a great response. Some quilters contacted me and we ended up finding ways for them to donate without the quilts actually going through me to get to Layers of Hope.

But then this big box showed up with some fantastic goodies for the quilt drive. A lady in California quilts and also spends time in Texas with another group of quilters, the Rayburn Crafters.

The box was super full with quilts and knitted blankets! I was like a kiddo on Christmas morning going through the box and seeing all the fun pieces. And as I was looking at each one, these cute little things kept falling out….

Hats! Adorable little hats were packed in throughout the blankets!

Most of the quilts are baby and toddler sized. They are small in size, but not in detail or love! Each one of these quilts are hand quilted, which I know is a labor of love.

I picked some of my favorite details to show ya! I love the retro little girl fabric and the funny lady bugs! The embroidery and hand stitching is just always fascinating to me as well!

Then there was also this quilt in the box. It’s nice and big and I’m totally in love with it! It’s made to look older than it really is. Doesn’t it look like something you’d and in an antique shop? Love it!

and I’ve started my donations as well, but more to come on that!

I’ve been in touch with Layers of Hope and am dropping of the box this weekend!

 

 

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a happy Easter! We did! A nice relaxing day and some Easter egg hunting!

Easter-1-ImFeelinCrafty

At the last minute we decided to join some friends at their church and I realized the kiddo didn’t really have anything to wear… So what does any crafty mom do? I sewed up some pants, made a bow tie and did some shopping!

Easter-Pow-ImFeelinCrafty

I have been meaning to make the kiddo another pair of Surfer Slacks. I was sewing something else and as I was ironing my eye struck the seersucker on my shelf. So I put two and two together and out came a seersucker surfer slack!

Easter-PantsCloseup-ImFeelinCrafty

I think I mentioned before, but the knit elastic waist is a huge hit with the kiddo! I love that you can dress them up or dress them down.

Then I needed a spring sweater. Um… Has anyone been shopping for a spring sweater for boys lately? I went to 5 stores. Nothing. Absolutely Nothing. So I switched gears when I saw this little jacket at Old Navy. Totally ended up hitting the spot!

Easter-End-ImFeelinCrafty

So I finished the pants, the kiddo went to bed and I knew a bow tie would tie it all together… So, a quick little sew and some hot glue… And you have a bow tie! I’ll make a quick tutorial to show ASAP!

He loved it! Having everyone he saw tell him how handsome he looked helped! He didn’t take it off all day!

Easter-3-ImFeelinCrafty

After the egg hunts, I asked if he wanted to take off his jacket and he said no. Then he did, but I found it on the floor and not in his closet where he was supposed to put it. He didn’t put it away, because he wanted to wear it to do our late afternoon dog walk!

We had fun getting dressed up and enjoying the sun on our lovely Easter Sunday! Hope you did too!

A Perler Bead Easter Card (printable)

EasterCard-Bunny-ImFeelinCrafty

Not long ago, the kiddo picked out this huge bag of perler beads at Goodwill. And a few other things… I told him he had to pick one thing, so he picked the Hulk gloves and put the perler beads back…. Then I put the perler beads back in the cart. A huge bag of […]

Call for Quilts for Oso

This week our state has experienced a devasting loss. They are saying the mudslides are our worst natural disaster since Mt. St. Helens eruption. Last I heard the death toll is around 20 and 30 are still missing. Unfortunately this is part of the better news, in that the missing has been dropped from 90 […]
