Cash Gregory

This sweet boy was born on Tuesday February 1st, 2011 to Chantel (a receptionist from my office) and Carson Benallack. Little Cash was born 2 days after my friend Sara had her baby, Levi.  Since I found out these two were expecting near the same time I choose the same pattern with different fabrics for […]

Sneak Peak

Today I am giving you a sneak peak into what is going on in my sewing room.  I seem to have several projects on the go at the moment that all got a bit sidestepped as I have been spending all my free time working on the Stepping Stones quilt (for which by the way […]


I had an idea.  I decided that I would start posting a “gratitude” post every once in a while.  Whenever something nice happens, something to brighten my day, or something that I think might brighten your day, I will share it.  I have found that God often gives me little glimpses of something fantastic or even something […]

Valentines Day

I’m going to be honest with you all.  I have never had a boyfriend who took me out or did anything special for me on Valentines Day.  Since I have been single for 11 of the last 14 years since high school I have always been jealous of those people who have someone who loves […]

Stepping Stones

I wanted to share a bit of the technique I have been using for this new quilt with you all.  It is done by foundation paper piecing. Step One: Set up you laptop to watch episodes of ER and organized 72 strips of bali pop batiks in to 36 pairs of contrasting strips.  I chose […]

New York Beauty

This is the prelude to my Stepping Stones quilt.  I took a New York Beauty class a few days before the Stepping Stones class.  The New York Beauty is so named because the block resembles the tiara worn by the Statue of Liberty in New York. This block contained two elements that are my very […]

Stepping Stones

Hey!  Welcome to my new blogger site!  I just thought I would give you a little peak at what I’ve been working on this week.  I took a class on Monday to lear paper-piecing, something that I have been avoiding since I started quilting.  So far it is not as bad as I thought!  The […]

Mug Rug Swap!

I thought it would be fun to get involved in a quilt square swap so I found this fun swap on The Quilting Gallery blog.  It’s the Mug Rug Swap! I make two mug rugs and send them to my secret partner and someone else gets my name and sends me two mug rugs!  I’m […]

Levi Hunter Stickel

Hurray!  Levi Hunter has finally arrived at 6:19pm on Sunday, January 30, 2011.  He is the second adorable son of my very good friends Bryce and Sara. He is a spitting image of his dad Bryce. I got to go and meet him today for the first time and I can’t wait to watch him […]
