Summer Days

I can hardly believe it's August.  This summer really has flown by and blogging has taken a back seat to  playing with my boys, camping, boating, and several trips home to Idaho.  I can't tell you how many different tutorials I've started and never gotten around to finishing. School will be starting in a few weeks and hopefully things will settle down enough so I can show you a few new quilt patterns I've been working on.

A few weeks ago my oldest little boy turned 8.  EIGHT.  Its been a hard age for me to wrap my mind around.  I think one of the main reasons is that in my mind OLD people have 8 year old kids, and I don't feel that old at 29.

In our church, children are baptized at 8 years old. My little guy will be getting baptized in September and one of my dear friends took time out of her busy schedule to snap a few pictures of him for announcements. He looks so grown up in his little suit.  I sure love that kid.

So a few of the tutorials I've been working on include DIY board and batten...

 and some pocket throw pillows with piping for my bedroom re-style series.

Also, I will be doing Part Three of my Quilting 101 series (you can find Part One here and Part Two here) on half-square triangles and will be using this fabric to make a sweet baby girl quilt.

Here's to hoping at least one of these tutorials ends up on the blog by the end of the week...
