Vintage Christmas Quilt

Sewing Retreat

I just spent some very fun days with my best friend at a Sewing Retreat!  We went up to the cabin for a few days of S & S.  (Sewing and Shopping!)

We started out by driving up the canyon and it was just beautiful…the leaves are starting to turn colors and the weather was gorgeous!  We went to our new favorite quilt shop in Midway, Utah, called My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe.  We got the fabric to start a new Vintage Christmas Quilt.  Vintage Christmas Quilt  (more…)

New Quilt Shop

There is a new quilt shop in Midway, Utah that is called My Girlfriend’s Quilt shop.  They have a wonderful assortment of fabrics and a great collection of wool fabrics, so it has become one of my favorite shops to visit!  They have had a shop in Logan, Utah and now they have a second store in Midway!  

They had an open house a week or so ago and so I stopped in the afternoon and I was able to meet the owner of the Logan store and her sister, Kim…as in Kimberbell!  My Girlfriends quilt shoppe (more…)

Choices-Thought

Before I do my Choices-Thought I want to wish every mom out there a Happy Mother’s Day!

Today is the first day of school here so…I want to wish all of you mothers out there an unofficial Happy Mother’s Day!  I used to call my sister every year on the first day of school and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day…and I kind of feel like a young mom today, because I am sending one of the kids that I tend on a regular basis to school all day today!  He is in first grade and I have been tending him since he was 6 months old!  It is a bittersweet feeling, because you miss the baby/toddler stage, yet you are happy for their future!  I am not sure what I will do with my time now, but I do have some fun plans for the next couple of weeks to celebrate!  (I could clean house or work in the yard, but that is no fun!)

Now on to today’s post!

I thought that it would be fun to do a quote from our 40-day conference reading.  It is from the talk by President Monson on choices:Choices-thought-000-Page-1 (more…)

You'll-Never-Be-Brave

You’ll Never…Thought

I have not done a thought in a long while, so when I saw this one the other day, I thought it would be a great motivational thought for not only, those students going back to school, but for each one of us!  

You’ll Never…ThoughtYou'll-Never-Be-BraveNo one likes to makes mistakes or encounter failure, but if we do…we need to remember that all of our experiences in this life are just to help us grow and learn.  

Sometimes it can be a scary world out there and we are too hard on ourselves.  But if we can stand back and take a look at what we learned from a certain experience and be better for it, then we can turn a bad experience into a wonderful growing experience.  We need to learn these lessons for ourselves, but we also need to teach our children how to handle life’s disappointments!

This would be a great one to frame for your home, office, kids, or for yourself!  It is formatted to an 8 x 10 size for those that would like to print it.  Just click on the link below for your free printable download!

You’ll Never

I hope you’ll take a moment to think about this, You’ll Never…Thought.  There are a lot of you’ll never’s out there and we need to be able to turn them into a positive not only for ourselves but for our families!

Hope you have a great weekend.  Think positive and soon the “you’ll never” will turn into the “You Will!”

Thanks for Visiting!
