WIP Wednesday

It's been a few weeks since I've posted on WIP Wednesday.  We went on vacation to Sun River, OR and then we had our fair the next week and last week I took the kids swimming at the last pond day before school starts.  School starts today for the kiddos so hopefully I'll be able to get a little more sewing time in:)  However, in the last month, I did manage to get this chevron quilt top finished:

This week, I'm hoping to quilt it and sew some bibs for a friend that just had her baby.

Simple Stories has an awesome new line out called Sn@p!  It comes in a variety of colors and looks so fun to play with.  Here's a fun video they shared on their blog about it:

Memory Works Inspiration

Well it's my month to share some inspiration for the Memory Works website.  You can go here to see the site and then go to inspiration and you can see the full supply list and instructions.  I used the brand new Simple Stories Take a Hike collection which is great for any outdoor projects:)

 A card that would be fun to use to invite someone over for a BBQ

 I created the camping checklist to use and store next to our camping supplies so it's there to use whenever it's time to pack for camping.  I laminated it so I can check it off and then erase the checkmarks and use it again!

A hiking adventure from quite a few years ago (at least 5!)

WIP Wednesday

It's Wednesday again and I wanted to share what I've been working on this past week. I finally finished the binding on my first quilt this past week. Yeah!!!! I shared a few pictures yesterday but here's one again:

I also started working on my chevron quilt.  I got all of the strips cut out, pressed, and then cut into squares.  Now on to putting the quilt top together:)
