the joys of my life

i've been thinking a lot about my joys this week.
my dogs, kids, husband, home and my job (not necessarily in that order) all bring such immense joy.
my to-do list is being conquered...
the sun has been shining...
the roses are blooming...

here's what's been happening on the frame these last few weeks...

A Finish!
My 2015 Ben Franklin BOM is officially done!
I gave it to a friend whose just had her 50th birthday.
The quilt is just as sassy as she is.

My Silo Barn Quilt.
I modified Lori Holts Silo Barn quilt to have 12 silo barns instead of 4.
I LOVE the way it turned out.
It's waiting patiently for it's binding.
Quilted with Blush pantograph in a light teal thread.
my studio is a bit of a disaster.
we've spent quite a bit of time away from the house visiting homeschool co-ops and running errands.
i'm hoping this next week will be quieter.
though, happily, we'll be having quite a few rehearsals for ballet coming up!
*squee*
did i tell y'all that i'll be a jellyfish in our recital?
the girls will be fish.
we'll be dancing together.
i love being a mommy.
my girls are without a doubt some of the most amazing people i know.
and they make me a better person just for having known them.

happy early mother's day to all you beautiful women out there!
whether you have children of your own body or not your influence and love is felt and cherished.

xo,
