Summer Mode

I have been so busy for the last month; I'm afraid I'm not going to have a lot of time for blog-writing (or reading) this summer! Here's a quick list of some of the things going on here:
*Pool time
*Late start but we got a little garden in
*Library with kids
*Sewing a secret project (needing to work on another one, too!)
*Working on keeping up a chore schedule for my kids
*Totally giving up on a bedtime routine for them, sigh.

I did want to share about the KCMQG pouch project; it is a difficult thing to write about but our guild has been making fetal demise pouches to be used at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City. That's where my preemie girl was born so of course I had to join in. I've made a couple and have a few more kits to make up today before our guild meeting. Do visit the Kansas City MQG blog to find out more about the project, ok?

Also I got this sweet book in the mail the other day; I was lucky to win it from Ayumi at Pink Penguin during giveaway week. Thanks Ayumi! I've just flipped through it so far but it has some interesting projects that I think I'll try for sure.

My boys want to help make a German pancake this morning, so yummy. I need to decide if I'm going to wake them up now or wait a little longer. Hope you have a great day!

Yay for summer! My garden went in late, too. It was just so crazy wet this spring. But things are starting to sprout, so there's hope for it!

And German pancake sounds good, I haven't made that in awhile and my kids love it too!

First I want to say how much I have enjoyed your blog. I do very little quilting but do lots of girl sewing. I would like to have the pattern for the "pouches'. I belong to a group that smocks premie and burial gowns for our local hospital. We have been doing this for about 15 years. The pouches would be something different to offer parents.
