Redefining "Soccer Mom"

Binding at last night's game.  
Nice and clear -no rain- and the quilt kept off the wind. 
Thanks for the encouragement.
 
If you're local, check out Tom & Lucy's Art Shoppe boutique which is going on this weekend. I'm going this afternoon. Maybe we could meet? They always have beautiful things.  Last time I bought some awesome earrings. Jewelry is what I typically buy at craft fairs.  It's a part of the craft world that I have not allowed myself to enter.  I figure I save money by buying someone else's finished product rather than buying all the supplies and hoarding them in my basement, never getting to them. I already have one too many hoards.

I knew you could do it. And who knows, you may convert other moms's to hand work during all of those games.

Sounds like a great way to spend your day... Cheering on the kids and sewing/quilting.

It's such a breath of fresh air to see a soccer mum that distances herself from the "bulldog" variety that made the tour around the world on TV screens giving real soccer mums a bad reputation. Go girl, go!

I hit the "publish" button a little too fast ... your quilt looks gorgeous. I love the bright, sunny feeling it has and the green/white dots are yummy!

Deanna said...

Yay, you! It will probably help you be very calm at the games, too, because you don't dare jump up and yell. 1: quilt might get dirty. 2: you could stab yourself.

looks like the perfect outdoor activity to me!

Nice way to keep warm!!

Hey do you teach at American Quilting or just design for them? I'm coming to Utah in June and thought it might be fun to take a class from you if you do!
