kidgiddy @laurakellydesigns has been busy making orcas from my book #SewingTalesToStitchAndLove today while I was watching eagles and catching swallowtails. She's got a really fun word search download on her blog too.

kidgiddy Just went on an adventure & I wasn't sure which pic to share - the far away bald eagle guarding it's nest, the deer, the lighthouse - or this #Swallowtail that may have just emerged with a folded wing. This pic won.

kidgiddy Trying to find inspiration for a project I have to get done in 4 days. Was flipping through my pics and found this #flower pic from the #quilterscolorweekend retreat which was only 3 weeks ago.

kidgiddy So excited to see my #hexie stash growing but feeling I've barely scratched the surface on two #quiltsformydaughters!

kidgiddy Added more #hexies to the stash last night. These really have no rhyme or reason other than they were simply scraps from other projects.

kidgiddy Enjoying a little time amongst my Granny's old treasures - like this 90+ year old yo-yo quilt made for her as a dolly blanket.

kidgiddy Can't get over how cute this sweet #LenciDoll is, and her adorable dress.

  •   thecursivequilter The picture you posted before this one is the thing my nightmares are made of lol!! 3d
  •   kidgiddy @thecursivequilter maybe that's why no one was liking it? Scared people off? Usually spiders do the trick for me. 3d
  •   kidgiddy @thecursivequilter the LenciDoll eyes were always very strange. Hers are no exception. I'd love to learn the wool doll technique but have normal eyes. 3d
  •   thecursivequilter Agreed about the eyes; I think that's what did it for me. The dress is absolutely adorable though! 3d
  •   kitkabbit Pretty sure that like the steiff and r john wright dolls they use wool felt and use heat and molds to form the doll bodies. 3d
  •   kitkabbit And steam. 3d
  •   kidgiddy @kitkabbit yes - that's exactly how this one was made. Would love to learn that technique. 3d

kidgiddy Made some more #hexies last night and had a fun idea to photograph them outside. Stepped out in the sun and saw this shadow which was too fun to not share.

kidgiddy It's been over a week since I've posted?. Crazy but good. I came home from the awesome first time ever #quilterscolorweekend retreat and crashed hard. While I was gone I found out that a sweet woman I know, lost her son unexpectedly. When I got home, I just wanted to be with my family, hold my girls, and cry for this sweet friend and her family. Since being home I've retreated to my secret hiding place and have been evaluating what is most dear to me and enjoying the little moments, the laughter and even the trials. At the same time - I've been working my butt off cleaning the #kidgiddystudio and haven't had time to sew anything fun for myself. I had to take time for my creative space. It was in shambles and needed a lot of TLC. A lot - luckily it helped ease my mind too! I've been on IG a little here and there - but not much - so what have I missed? What have you been up to? 6d

kidgiddy Bought some origami paper from @fiddleheadartisansupply for my daughters this weekend and am pretty sure this color pattern on the edges would make an awesome quilt pattern...

kidgiddy During my #quilterscolorweekend trip - I got to visit the awesome shop and peeps @alewivesfabrics and loved the sign out front too! "Welcome to Alewives, where the irons are hot, but the fabrics are hotter"! Lol.
If you are ever up in #Damariscotta check them out! (Fyi - They are off of Rt 215 not Rt 1)

  •   sewgiddy @kidgiddy can you teach a class the week of October 10th when I'll be home? Haha. No pressure! ;) 2w
  •   kidgiddy @sewgiddy I don't know if October will work while prepping for market - but will certainly keep you posted. After all - us giddy gals need to meet and bond! 2w
  •   kidgiddy @alewivesfabrics yay! Can't wait! 2w
  •   sewgiddy Yes! Kiddy-girls bonding/ meeting must happen! Any chance you're going to Glamp? 2w
  •   kidgiddy @sewgiddy sadly no - and not to quiltcon either unless I can teach. Just can't foot the bills right now. This retreat replaced my annual craft and hobby convention trip this past jan. It was a luxury for sure! 2w
  •   sewgiddy @kidgiddy ...we'll sort this out someday! 2w
  •   kitkabbit Awesome!!! Love damariscotta!!! 2w
  •   kidgiddy @kitkabbit wish I had had even more time to explore on the way up last week! 2w
