Getting Ready for the Big Trip

20140729-213742-77862750.jpg

For those of you following along on my big family vacation at Yellowstone, I mentioned that the trip was in the planning stages for months. After we made our reservations I did my best to get Athena ready for the trip. She needed new curtains, seat cushions, and more! My dad came out in April […]

A Family Vacation, Part 2

20140727-200410-72250930.jpg

In case you missed it, I just returned from a family vacation in Yellowstone National Park. After we left Old Faithful, we drove up to the northern part of the Park for our Chuckwagon dinner. Originally I was going to ride a horse while everyone else rode in the chuck wagon. But we didn’t account […]

A Family Vacation, Part I

20140726-162546-59146703.jpg

Today is my first day back from my vacation, which I had been planning since October! After I bought Athena I thought it would be fun to get my family together for a big camping trip. My cousins are in Vegas and my brother and sister are in Washington State, so I knew it was […]

I Believe Summers Were Made For Glamping!

Hello there, How is your summer going? I have to say I am having a great summer so far! I’ve been Glamping it up with Athena and having a ball! Sew far this summer I’ve been to Crow Wing State Park and got eaten alive by ticks and mosquitos. But discovered a very fun brewery […]

Athena’s Maiden Voyage

Firewood

Over Mother’s Day weekend I finally took Athena out for her Maiden Voyage! With all the work I’ve been doing on her I couldn’t wait any longer!  I decided to Glamp at Baker Park Reserve just West of the Cities, figuring better close than sorry.   I arrived Friday night and backed her gingerly into the […]

Well Hello there!  How have you been?  I have been doing my best at keeping my basement dry with all the rain we’ve had.  Someone told me that April was the second wettest on record!  Hard to believe that we could out-do last April, but I guess we did. Last April I had some water […]

Floors for Athena

What happened to April? Last time I looked up it was April 4th! Time to slow my a$$ down! I hope everyone made it through tax season without too many tears. I don’t know where the month went so I can’t tell you what I’ve been up to other than not sewing as much as […]

What I made at Quilt Retreat

20140406-211129.jpg

Last weekend I went to Quilt Retreat with a few friends.  It dawned on me while I was up there that I’ve been going to this Retreat for 10 years!  It definitely doesn’t seem that long! I used to be really good about finishing projects while I’m there, but lately all I seem to be […]

What I Made: Pillows for Athena

So remember when I showed you how I sew a curved seam? Here are the finished products from that tutorial. Okay – so that’s only one pillow, but I did make three of them!  I’m only showing you one of them because for the most part they all look the same. The pattern I used […]
