This week was the last week of school for my kids! We are on to the holiday vacation. Our plans are small – making and delivering cookies, cutting out paper snowflakes, sewing, shopping a little. We are also working on getting healthy. The kids have been sick for a couple of weeks now, with one child missing the entire last week of school. This is stressful to kids, especially living overseas and the expectations of what the school wants from you are different.
This is so fun – have you seen that Maddie at BadAss Quilters Society is having a big celebration because she is thrilled to have reached 8,000 people via the BAQ facebook page. I am so excited to be a part of this, quilting is whatever you make it be and I encourage you to check them out.
I was lucky to meet and have lunch with Carmen of CarmencitaB and I went with her to one of her book signings. She is such a fun woman! I loved having lunch with her and visiting about sewing and her experience being on the The French Sewing Bee and in case you don’t know Carmen, she won. I love this great tote bag she made and has up for sale! I ordered a couple of them and hope you do too.
I have started labeling my quilts (and I need to send labels to the US to be added to quilts of mine that are finished and ready to give away!) and I love this really simple way to make your own custom product tags. I made a lot of small zipper pouches or drawsting bags for gifts and it would be great to be able to add a tag so people remember who gave it to them.
