I really love the community that is created through social media. Shipping out today are these two Sew Sew Sensory Sheets that were gifted anonymously from one mama to another. They are connected through a special needs Facebook group and found me through another one like it. How cool is that??
In honor of our Red Phoenix Rising Meghan, these are being sent in your neverending pursuit of SPREADING THE LOVE.
Grateful to be featured alongside these other creative mamas. Side hustle FTW!
I haven’t had the desire to sew much lately, but it’s still important to me to create. Here’s a little watercolor floral practice I did during art time with the kiddos this weekend. I think I liked outlining in black ink better than the painting.
A secret suit coat pocket floating in sea swirling seafoam–perfect for love notes to J. #sunsetonthebeachquilt #riseredphoenix #sewsewbyaudreyperrott
Meghan, I’ve got your back–and so do thousands (yes, thousands) of others.
We make our own sunshine around here.
I didn’t have much of a plan when I started this quilt. I knew I wanted it to reflect Baby K’s adventure-seeking, nature-loving, modern mama and daddy. And I knew I wanted to create a modified flying geese pattern. And I LOVED these color combos–boyish but subdued. But what I didn’t expect as it came together is how perfect it would be for this adventurous family of three!
My favorite part about making my own patterns is that it’s hard to make mistakes–you just change up the original idea. It’s a great exercise in flexibility for the Type A gal that I am.
There were a few changes mid-layout, blocks finished and rearranged. When I finished the top and showed it to B before I started to quilt it he said, “Wow, I love how you made the mountains look like spring and winter in daytime and night.”
Um yeah, I TOTALLY meant to do that.
I guess my subconscious was channeling their Mount Kilimanjaro excursion.
