  •   ceciliainthestable It proves that there is light at the end of the tunnel🔆 1d
  •   kidgiddy @polygirl aw thanks - but it's not mine to share until it's made public. It's a friend of mine that painted on each canvas and needed them sewn together. I'll share when I can - it's pretty cool! 1d
  •   kidgiddy @ceciliainthestable lol - I couldn't resist making sure that was in the pic once i saw it on the screen. 1d

kidgiddy This was the back of the oversized #valentinesgift #mugrug I made. These little @sizzix_quilting squares were warming me up for fun #sizzix project.

kidgiddy It's a miracle I have access to my computer again. For weeks it's been going down hill & then I lost all access to it and my files/email last week. So finally today I was able to list this bad boy #modularstar pattern in my etsy shop! Yay! Have at it for those that have been patiently waiting.

kidgiddy I'm always amazed (& giddy) seeing how @fishmuseum & everyone else can put their own touch on my @sizzix_quilting doll pattern. You have to visit Deb's feed and blog to read all about her @genqmag #sewmyself doll entry...and all her other cool stuff including her botwal patterns.

kidgiddy Ok so my quilting is wobbly but I had this awesome idea for quilting connected hearts (after seeing @poppyprint #sewprompted2016 pic last week of her bias tape appliqué method) and used my @sizzix_quilting hearts as my guide. Thanks for the inspiration Krista!
This is also my #love post for last week since I forgot to post one for @bluenickelstudios!

kidgiddy Little Pearl is overseeing the quick production of this mugrug backing. I think she approves.

kidgiddy Sunday's are for sleeping. I was so exhausted from a weekend of cleaning house that I crashed on my couch - so grateful.

kidgiddy I only briefly went outside today to mail a package and drove by this beautiful #snow covered tree near my pond. The rest of my day was spent with my crashing computer updating it and praying for miracles, as well as cleaning house (literally). #ineedtopetsomefabricnow the stress did me in!

kidgiddy @growstudio I got my hands on some of your new neighborhood fabric from @windhamfabrics. So cute - congrats on your debut line. 1w

kidgiddy #tbt I think this is still one of my favorite #sewingpatterns I've ever designed. This little #turtle comes out of his shell and is in my book #sewingtalestostitchandlove. I designed it a few years before my book came out for an @amybutlerdesign fabric contest she was having that year.

  •   whynotsewquilts I just tagged you in a picture I have for freezer paper appliqué circles. 2w
  •   kidgiddy @clutteredcurator I wish. Not sure they want to be making my husband a Valentine's gift. 2w
  •   kidgiddy @jeaniehlm @mtweedel @susansquiltstudio thanks ladies - will look this ideas up. I have a yoyo maker so I'll have to try that too. 2w
  •   kidgiddy @scrappymommy2 I've tried that before and I failed miserably. But that was many many years ago. Lol 2w
  •   kidgiddy @megmormel @whynotsewquilts thanks for the tags. I will have to try that next time with my Sizzix die cutting the freezer paper not the fabric. (I'd cut both if I had the next size up or down). 2w
  •   astitchinbetween I do this: sew right sides together of the main fabric and thin white fabric in the back. Cut notches in the seam allowance, then cut a vertical slit in the white fabric and through it turn the circle right side out. When you iron it it will be nice and flat 2w
  •   mjnorindr I use Perfect Circles. Make tiny stitches around the edge to gather the fabric. Use spray starch and press with an iron after gathering around the circle. When its cool and dry remove the template and I use YLI silk to applique down the circles. Good luck! 2w
  •   elnorac Perfect Circles are quick, and they make, well... you know. 6d

kidgiddy I don't post personal pics very often (ESP of my kids) but I caught a glimpse of my daughter yesterday and realized how time is passing quickly and they are becoming their own persons and picking their own outfits. Makes my mama heart happy and sad.

  •   lynncarsonharris I know how you feel. I love my daughter's style. She loves layering her clothes and pairs things I would never put together but they are so "her". I love that she is so confident with her style before she enters middle school. 2w
  •   copperbay Whooooosh. Just like that. 2w
  •   kidgiddy @lynncarsonharris this one is going into MS too. She def has found her style. Mine has changed so much being a sahm- not sure what it is anymore. Lol 2w
  •   kidgiddy @copperbay exactly! 2w
  •   scrappymommy2 I'm in the same boat! Mine are 12 &14 and we are buying new sneakers every 3 months....where does the time go???? 2w
