to rhoda, with love

i have a dear sweet friend named rhoda who is a missionary in thailand.  she is beautiful, generous, and one of the top 10 funnest people i know.  inspired by my own personal rock stars, three friends and i are making her a friendship quilt.  we’re each creating four unique quilt blocks, putting them all together to make a quilt, and sending it to her with love.  so far i’ve made two of my four… (RHODA! COVER YOUR EYES!)

numero uno:

numero dos:

our deadline is in about a week, so i hope to post pics of my other blocks soon.  and if i’m lucky and the stars line up just right, i might have that tshirt quilt front done by the weekend… cross your fingers!!!!!!

xo, jess

me and my little man

my bff took this snapshot of me and my sweet boy. isn’t she a genius?! i’m not this cute in real life… cooper is a handsome little devil though, don’tcha think???


i’ve been working on a tshirt quilt for a craft swap with erin. she’s making me a crocheted afghan and i can’t WAIT to see it. i’d love to show you a picture of the quilt, but that’d give away the surprise for her, so i’ll just show you this pretty pile of scraps.


i’ll keep you posted on my progress, and hopefully will have a tutorial available for you once it’s done.

and since i know we all love inspiration, here’s one more little bit ‘o love for ya. it’s for a little boy named william, who loves worms, and when he was little he couldn’t say “william”, he said “worm”. so there’s the story behind this appliqued tshirt.


have a great day everyone!!!

after… my wasp bag!

the moment you’ve all been waiting for (i know your lives have literally stopped since wednesday in anticipation!)…



the original wasp bag pattern called for two straps, and i always try to make things my own, so i stuck with a single strap, and eliminated the inner pocket because it was sooo complicated.  i may add one in later if i find that i miss it.  i do love a good organized purse with lots of pockets, like my all-time fave vera bradley!   dscf3805.jpg



well, what do you think?  was it worth the wait?  it was definitely worth the work!!!  if you’ve made a bag from another free online tutorial & loved it, let me know because i’d love to try it!  xoxo

birthday announcement

i promised you an idea for a newborn in your life, and here it is. let me tell you, this was very well-received! the proud new mommy has declared that THIS will be what she grabs in a house fire (immediately after the children are safe, of course)!!!



i used scrap drapery fabric, stitched out the birth info with a pretty frame on my Babylock Ellageo (say it with a british accent and you’ll sound cool), sized it to fit a 5×7 mat, & framed it to match the nursery.  sooo shabby chic, and perfect for a garden fairy princess.
