I've decided recently I want to add more handmade to my life...I sometimes feel the things that surround me with in my home are not necessarily the things that make me happy. I like to walk in my home and be happy about what I see (underneath and behind all the toys, dust and clutter).
I was having a sad day and decided I needed a project to start AND finish. I decided on this mini quilt/runner for the perfect spot in my family room. I made these sweet little Churn Dash blocks, 6" each.
(And don't they look cute on point??)
The sashing is about 2" finished (I believe). Simple straight-line quilting.
My gallery wall has a lot of meaning to me. The US map has hearts in all the places we've lived since we've been married (UT, MO, AZ and VA). I have beautiful framed art with words from my dad and his initials, all backed with the Union Jack flag. My dad's double decker buses, he had so many and he would let my boys pick them off the shelf and play with them. Beautiful figurine of a daddy and his three daughters gifted to me from my sweet cousins. Pictures of my kids that really make me happy. Our 2013 family book of all our adventures last year.
It's the first spot in my new home that really feels like me. I'm excited to create more!
