Project Life: Week 26


Photo wise, this was a sparse week; but only because I was too bust to take the photos 😉ProjectLifeWeek26Right PLWk26yard

The yard was magic this week, pure magic – and this is one of my favorite photos of it. The sunlight is perfection and long days are my jam.PLWK26Adventure

I made a couple of filler cards this week. The one above combines the back of a card from week 25, some washi tape, and one of the summer Studio Calico stamps. Fun and simple.PLWK26InsertsFront

I’ve also got two inserts this week – on for each quilt I completed.PLWk26InsertsBack

Both completed quilts are gifts for my sponsored children in Ecuador, and I’ll be taking the quilts to them this September. I was really starting to feel the time crunch for preparing for such a big trip, so I made it a goal to get both of these beauties finished before July. PLWk26Josue

Both quilts use the same pattern, feature a swatch of the same fabric, and have their respective recipient’s name embroidered on them.PLWK26Emily

I love how they both turned out so different, but still related. I can’t wait to give them to my kids 🙂

A few other highlights from the week:

  • I finally got back to yoga and LOVED it. I seriously missed these weekly sessions & am thrilled beyond belief to be back at the studio
  • I love the peek-a-boo rainbows you find after quick summer showers
  • The local library is my favorite. So many books, so little time. (Also Dad and I are looking to plant a few fruit trees in our yard. Any and all tips are welcome)
  • Ghibli movie nights are so fun
