Fabric Giveaway & The Last First Day of School

Hey everybody! I wanted to share what some of my "peeps" (hey, I am a totally cool and happening chick, yes??) have been up to....

Kiera at It's Sew Kiki has just completed table topper and a candle mat using my Oh Holy Night fabric line for Henry Glass Fabrics. (Click here to see swatches). It is available in stores now and on my website.

Kiera isn't the only one who has been busy using my Oh Holy Night fabric. Look what Snoodles at LilyPad Quilting has been up to:

She promises to show us the entire finished project once it's finished. In the meantime, she is giving away fat quarter bundles of my Oh Holy Night fabric. Hop over now to enter!

In other news, yesterday was my youngest daughter's first day of her Senior year. Every year, since my oldest started Kindergarten, we have taken their photos on the first day of school. Yesterday, I took the last "First Day of School" photo ever. Sniff.

First Day of Kindergarten

First Day of Freshman Year

First Day of Senior Year

As a Senior, she will be driving herself to and from school everyday. Thus ends 17 years of shuttling children back and forth to school everyday. It's going to be quite an adjustment, probably requiring lots of chocolate and Lifetime movies...... As many of you know, our oldest daughter got married back in June. I am constantly fluctuating between excitement about this new season of our lives, and nostalgia for the "good old days" when the kids were little..... I am constantly amazed at how fast life seems to fly by, and the older I get, the more and more I realize how precious time is and that there is only so much you can put off  "til tomorrow." 

Finally, the September Newsletter will go out next week. If you're not already a subscriber, make sure you sign up on the upper right bar of this blog page. The September issue will offer a wonderful recipe, free projects, and more.....

Have a lovely day,

  2. LOVE the fabric!!! So it was your daughter's last "first day of school"! She looks happy! :)

  3. They sure do grow up fast, mine live on their own now and my son is on his honeymoon trip.


  4. I didn't realize she was a Senior this year!!!!! I really enjoyed the 3 pics of her first day. She is beautiful!

    Hey I wanted to thank you for the birthday card-What a nice happy surprise! Sorry I am just now getting back to you-It has been one of the busiest summers in our history and we are REALLY enjoying it! It's the first time in my life that I am holding onto summer and not pushing for fall to be here. So strange for me, but then again, we have really only had one week of real sunshine around here this summer!

    Enjoy that chocolate and the Lifetime movies...I'm still really into the sappy bad acting Hallmark shows!

  5. The fabric is wonderful. It is really so hard to watch the kids get bigger, but we don't realize it until we look at those pictures and see.. gosh wasn't it just yesterday that they were heading off to school for the first time, and oooh now they are going into their last year of school..??? how did that happen so fast!

  6. Wonderful fabrics! I love the panel. :-) How sweet to have photo's of your DD from each stage of her school days. They do grow fast!

  7. thanks for sponsoring Lily Pad's giveaway! i love the pear quilted placemats you blogged about earlier in the week.

  8. I popped over from Lily Pad to say hello. I love the Christmas fabric!

  9. what a passing of an age, although if she goes off to college there will be other first days of schools, you just might not be there. I love teh fabric, nice color choices!
