So I am still sick and tired, However. I want to mention that Darlette got her own website with blog and all and here is her address:

Is it been that long?

oh well life happens, Hi!

A couple of weeks ago I sign up to decorate Miss A's teacher door as Appreciation Week. Since our elementary school is the house of the super stars I decided to go with the same theme. I came up with this:
and a friend of mine did this for her son's teacher:

I also made star cookies, but silly me I forgot to take pictures oh well life happens.

Thank you Dr. Seuss...

Dear Dr. Seuss,
Thank you so much for your books, my kids love them. Their favorite part is when Daddy reads to them because he puts such an effort, I think just the way you intended it to be.
Our new best time favorite is Green Eggs and Ham especially for Miss A. She is just starting to read. For me it was hard at first and I really thought it was a great tongue twister for non- English speaking born peeps just like me, but this week I saw the light, yep everything was clear. Dear Miss A said:
"I'll read to you (Miss G feeling sick) Green eggs and ham"
I said: "How come? You cannot read that? It's too long, you know?"
"Yes, I know" She answered, "but it has all my sight words, so I can read it all day long."
So she did, she read it all by herself to little Miss G accompanied by Miss K...
So you see Dr. Seuss, you have made this momma proud for I have a little one that wants to read, tongue twisters to me, yet so fluent to her.
Now I know it is not for me, but for little readers just like Miss A.  
Miss A's, Miss G's and Miss K's proud Momma

Scripture Cover and Bag

Since the end of March we have seen the miracle of reading, yes that magical thing that happens sometime in Kindergarten and first grade. We have been working with miss A all the school year and it finally happened. While visiting Darlette we were reading the scriptures and it was miss A's turn and I told her to try to read and she did. She was so happy and excited that she wanted to keep trying, the next few days she got more excited about reading and I told her if she wanted to have her own scriptures, She said yes! so did miss G so I gave them each her own and I promise to make them a tote to take to Church. I was a few days late from Easter, but since I did not said it was their Easter resent it work out Okay.
I also decided to make them a book cover. I took the girls to the quilt shop and I let them choose one print (they both chose the hot pink fabric) and I complemented them with two more prints.

Happy Sewing

QR Code Wall Hanging Quilt Along: Quilting, Binding and finishing Wall quilt.

This is the last of the quilt along!

First I am going to talk about the back.
I decided to make it a bit interesting so I made a block with this design:
just a black square in the middle with white around and another border of black. I did it with the leftovers I had at hand.
then I added a couple of more squares:

Sorry I did not take pictures of the individual squares but I added them to the back making sure I ended with a back mesuring 34'X34". Now when I started it I thought to line it like the picture above, however as I was taking pictures I change my mind and I decided to line it like this:
Then I place the back facing the carpet then the batting and then the top facing up
Next I pinned about every other square
Now for the quilting since it is a modern design I did a minimal design, lines. Now I had a few options, just straight lines (like I did on the Tokyo Subway map quilt) , diagonal lines or a echo circular design.

I went for the diagonal lines and here is how is finished binded
Here is how the back looks on the back. You can see I should have planned better for the rod

Well I hope you like it

Little hands

Better known as "manitas" this is for now Miss K's name because she is getting into everything. Her latest work was last Sunday when she got hands on my new face soap that I got just the day before. I could adore her, but I was so mad. Her daddy and her big sis clean up for me. Anyway just a little totally unrelated topic of the day.

The joys of parenthood! Daddy even had the joy of shooting delightful pictures.
Have a great Friday
