Summertime. It is the best of times, it is the worst of times. The best of times with family and fun, the worst of times for getting anything done! As I sit here trying to squeeze some work in between play dates and swimming lessons I realize how very little I have actually accomplished in the last six weeks. We are on year round school here, so my kids go back to school next week which is both very sad and a huge relief. I am happy to say, however, that this has been an incredibly fun summer with my kids, and one that they aren’t going to forget anytime soon! At the beginning of last year if you had told me that I would be the proud owner of a travel trailer (nicknamed the Glamper) I would have laughed at you. At the beginning of this year if you had told me that I would be the proud owner of a dirt bike I would have laughed even harder! Well, never say never!
Yep. That’s me in the middle. I named my bike Chancho. And, in case you are wondering I HAVE crashed. Twice. And it hurt. But oh the fun I am having! That is Mr. Fish on the left and the big fish stick on the right. The two little fish sticks have bikes, too, but thanks to a really grumpy camp host they were to afraid to ride them this trip. So now that I own a dirt bike, I have been thinking about what kinds of things I can sew for it. A bike cozy? A seat cover? Mr. Fish promised to never ride with me if I made a quilted seat cover. I can for sure make myself a fancy helmet bag. But what else???? There has to be something! Can you think of anything??
In other news, I haven’t been around to announce the winner of the Apple a Day book and Necklace kit! The winner is Cecilia Young! Congrats to her. I hope you all enjoyed the blog tour and had a good time seeing all of my team members again. They are such a lovely group of ladies.
One last little tidbit to share with you! I am just finishing up my SIXTH fabric line!!! It will be done by the end of this month. I cannot wait to show you this one…it may be my favorite. I am so so so excited about it. I can’t even tell you the name because it will give it all away! Stay tuned, though, I will share some soon!
