I did get some more fabric but it wasn’t even here long enough for me to snap a picture of it before I cut into it. I had bought the fabric and quickly sewed it into this. Some also went in the baby quilt I made for my niece that I forgot to take a picture of.
The fabric was the perfect color and I am almost tempted to go get some more of it in case I make another quilt with upcycled shirts. In case you’re wondering the fabric is Hollyhock Cottage by Lynette Anderson by Lecien. Material Magic in New Hampton, Iowa has more of the fabric. You can read more about the quilt here.
Used this Week: 6 yards store bought
Used year to Date: 187 yards store bought + 48.5 Moda fabric + 62.5 yards of recycled fabric…

Today I am thankful for daughter Kalissa. Yesterday I told you about the great relationship I had with my Mom. My relationship with Kalissa is much the same only this time around, I’m the mom. I spoil her just a little bit too much but she spoils me back so it’s all okay. She is at college 17 miles down the road but this came in the mail for me about three weeks ago.
It reads: “Hey mama! I know you’ve been kinda stressed about the house and quilting deadlines and conferences and money and I know all of that is even worse when Dad is in the combine. I found this little turtle when Craig and I went on our mini vacation and it reminded me of you. You’ve always taught me that God is in control, that I just have to have a little faith so I bought you this little turtle so that you can be reminded of that: God is in control, you’ve just gotta have a little faith. Love you lots-Kalissa Kramer”
At the time it was just the reminder I needed. We had gotten the bid back on the house and it was way over what we expected. We didn’t have a plan of how to work around that and I was a little stressed-but she was there when I needed her…just like she always is. She’s a great kid and oh my, she’ll make one heck of a good nurse as she obvious has some great caretaker skills.
The turtle is by my computer desk and will stay there as long as I have a computer desk. It’s special to me not just as the reminder that God is in control but also as a reminder that I have a great daughter who will watch out for me.
Today I am thankful for my daughter Kalissa.
