Hexagon Quilt

I finished a quilt for my daughter! It took a few years:) I started collecting vintage linens in pinks and yellows until I had a nice stack..

I was inspired by this hexagon quilt...
...which is in this book. 
Here's my quilt!
It turned out to be a nice queen size, about 80x90 inches.
My mom, sister, and friends helped me hand quilt this quilt. We double-quilted all the seams and I love the way that turned out. Now it's looking pretty on my daughter's bed!

Dickies Work Wear

I've ordered online from more than once. Here are the links if you want to buy farm work wear for the family without dragging everyone to town. I'm signed up for emails from and I get an email about once a week. These shop coveralls are a great price. Shipping is free when you spend $75.

A month ago they had a sale where these kids insulated bib overalls were $18 with one of their emailed coupons.

On Pinterest

pretty things on Pinterest
I see on my screen
beauty, fresh and lovely
all neat and clean
dream houses and d├ęcor
food, ideas, art
you could click forever
each time you start
I look at our mess
scattered over the floor
grace is here somewhere
I just have to dig 
a bit more
find the joy in the clutter
and try not to mutter
of chaos, and going insane
even a house full of love
is still not a house without pain
mine is broken beauty
not the Pinterest style
colours clash, ideas crash
after a while
living is imperfect
grace in the strife
Pinterest is there,
it won’t go anywhere
but I have to believe
I do have a beautiful life!
just a minute I'll take to pin it
something pretty and new
then I’m off to play games
with Thing 1 and Thing 2…

Yes, I am an online shopper and is one of my favorite places. I feel so smug when I can get everything on my list without getting in the truck and heading for town. Shipped for free, too. If you haven't ordered from before, you can use this coupon:

a well stocked clearance section
