libbydibby Another #nofilter beauty 5h
  •   libbydibby @lillyellasworld I just read all up on them. Poisonous. Toxic. Invasive. Can't find anything that curbs it's spread... Such sad words for such a beautiful plant. I've liked them for years, just never knew what they were. But butterflies like it! Reason enough to plant maybe just one? 4h
  •   lillyellasworld My grandma has them on her property in southern GA, I never noticed them overtaking anything and her partner is a botanist and he loves them 4h
  •   crackers_n_cheese My mom grew them in our yard when I was a kid. They're very pretty flowers. 4h
  •   hannitashouse Some varieties smell pretty too. 3h
  •   artquilt1 I WISH they were invasive! Only in other countries, not in southern USA! 3h
  •   libbydibby @artquilt1 wow! I'm getting a little botany lesson here. Sounds like I can plant without guilt then! @lillyellasworld 3h
  •   artquilt1 @libbydibby plant and enjoy! 3h
  •   mobearlindsey They sell lots of them here at the fancy nurseries. They don't make it through our winters, but they sure are deliciously sunny and happy while they last. The remind me of sorbet! 3h

libbydibby Stood on my feet packing boxes and wrangling my tornado today. Packed up most of my stash into boxes, which made me sad. So tonight as I was too sick to go to a concert with @jay_worth, I ended up packing more. But then I found more orphan blocks and thought I'd mess with them a little and see if I couldn't at least start the pillow-fication process for some of them. I am not wanting to bring 100 purposeless blocks into my new space. #sunnyroompillowdrive 23h

libbydibby This was texted to me by my neighbor @swannyleigh as she found her daughter and my son giggling through the upstairs window into the backyard. THIS is why I'm sad to move, even if it's only 1000ft south. #bestneighborhoodever #droughtlawn #wealsoagreemaybeitsbestwemove 1d

libbydibby Just try to box up a house with this little helper around. I dare you. On the bright side, there is less and less for him to destroy every day. Also... A pile of clean clothes and cloth diapers will keep him busy for a solid 5 minutes. #dailydaxfix #daxthedestroyer 1d

libbydibby I'm collecting pillows for teen moms in a local LA shelter. When they check in to this home, they are given a safe place to stay, but not a very bright or pretty room or bed. Help me make a pillow to cheer up the room and bring some sunshine to these girls. It's the perfect use for leftover scraps or orphaned quilt blocks. Or for new sewists/quilters, a great project to learn a new skill!
Pillows should be between 12"-18" and have to have no openings - covers need to be sewn onto the pillow.
Pillows are due this fall (you have plenty of time) - September 1, 2015 sound good?
Pillows can be brought to an #Lamqg meeting and given to me personally or if you direct message me a pic of your finished pillow, I'll send you an address to mail it to. Please feel free to repost this and share the opportunity and hashtag... #sunnyroompillowdrive

libbydibby Using up scraps and family movie night to sew a little #handquilted sunshine to be made into a pillow for a teen mom in a local shelter here in LA. If you want to join me and make a pillow to brighten up a teen mom's room along with me, send me a direct message or email (I'm trying to collect/make 40-50 total and would love the help of this generous community) #sunnyroompillowdrive 2d

libbydibby The back of tonight's hand quilting project shows the quilting way better than the front. It was just another orphan block that I found while packing my studio. But I needed something to do with my hands while we watched a movie with the kids, so now its on its way to becoming a part of the #sunnyroompillowdrive. (I'll post details this week if anyone wants to participate in a fun charity project. 2d

  •   4bean Feel better! I am home with migraine myself. Ugh. We have had quite the month over here and I think it's catching up with me. 3d

libbydibby Me and my giant cup of tea before bed. Same hoodie. He's still gone and I'm crazy sick, so it's gonna need to be sterilized when he gets back in town. If he's smart he will stay there. But I think he likes me, because he always seems to come back. 4d

libbydibby I interrupted my packing yesterday for some sanity sewing. This is for a new charity project I'm starting. A friend of mine works with teen moms in a home where they have very sad and sterile rooms. I'm going to start making and collecting pillows to cheer up their rooms (they need about 40). Orphan blocks seem a great place to start. So this is pillow number 1. Anyone want to join in? Let's call it the #sunnyroompillowdrive - I plan to ask the #Lamqg friends to help, but 40 is a lot to collect. Hint: I sometime make pillow forms from my fabric, thread and batting scraps too... So $0 used to make this. Also, charity pillows are such a great way to practice #freemotionquilting - I'm going to use this project to try out some different patterns than just stippling and squares. 5d

libbydibby A special pouch commissioned by a 5th grade customer. She's got a special place in my heart so I put lots of extra love into it. 5d
  •   jacquelyn_elzinga Oh I need a little wallet like this. So cute! 5d
  •   latifahsaafirstudios Your pouches are the best! I have a few of my own and I treasure each one! 5d
  •   libbydibby @latifahsaafirstudios it's a bit of a love language for me, i think. seems like everywhere i go someone pulls out some little pouch i made for them. you might have one of the larger collections. 5d
  •   loveshinescreates I LOVE the lil pouch you made for me years back and it houses my very favorite pens. You're the best!!! 4d

libbydibby Dax demonstrating the joy of destruction and why the drawers are all removed. This is fun to have going on while packing the house up. #daxthedestroyer 5d
  •   tinkerfrog I regularly walk into the kitchen to find all the dish towels on the floor only to wonder in what minute span I wasn't watching Zane that he accomplished that! 5d
  •   sdavisson21 Oh I love his pants! I need some. 5d
  •   libbydibby @tinkerfrog sounds like he's as fast as Dax. There is no time where he is unattended and not destroying stuff 5d
  •   tinkerfrog Zane also throws the recycling out the dog door. So helpful! 5d
  •   libbydibby @sdavisson21 I actually made them for him and bought enough fabric to make my own as well but I haven't done them yet. By the time I get around to it I will probably have to make another pair for him the next size up 5d
  •   threadedmess I wish I could comment with a picture! I have nothing on my bottom shelves (all the time) either because little hands like to pull everything down. 5d
  •   ahlbaa He must be so happy! 5d

libbydibby It's good that our school year is longer than other people's, because that gives me more time for teacher gifts... 5d
  •   pammyoh Really @libbydibby?...a quilt for a teacher gift? Sheesh. No hope for slackers like me. 5d
  •   libbydibby @pammyoh actually, I have done a quilt for the teachers every year The problem is that I have repeat teachers this year and both teachers are mail, so I have to do something different and special 5d
  •   libbydibby @pammyoh This is actually just a pillow from a stray orphan block 5d
  •   libbydibby @pammyoh oops MALE! 5d
