to teach my kidlets this...

and that we all get over the evil cold/virus that has hit our house yet again :(

ok ladies.  my new quilt is done.  but now comes the hard part....photographing it.  taking images of quilts has proven to be trickier than i thought.  i am new to this and boy is it tough to capture a full quilt and also the small details.  anyone have any tips they can share with me or resources that they learned from?  i'm hoping to get it photographed this weekend so i can have the tutorial up next week for you all.

i'm also going to be busy sewing and finishing up my project for KIDS over on me sew crazy on monday! i can't wait to show you all mackenzie's project.  if you haven't checked out the other fab guests in this series you should. there is a lot of fun stuff!

we also just got back this past monday from a long weekend out of town visiting family and before we left our oldest got a bad virus/sinus thingie that had her knocked down for days and she's still under the weather.  now i have it and the wee one is fighting it off with just a bit of a stuffy nose. can i say i am sick of being sick? we've had a rough go of it since mack started kindergarten in the fall.  she's had 3 colds now!  that's a lot!  jeez louiz!  i already have a very low immune system due to my health problems so anything she brings home i catch for sure.  such is life.  i keep pumping them up with vitamins etc but it would help if they ate the food they get made...lol.  i am stuck with 2 picky eaters and a mom who dislikes cooking...haha.  not a good combo. thankfully the hubs keeps us all alive..haha.

anyhoo this weekend is going to be busy but i'm hoping to carve out some time to take care of myself and get some extra rest.  for sure some reading and knitting is on the agenda as well.  can't have a weekend without knitting :P

what are your plans?  do you have any quilt photography tips?  what have you been working on this week?  fill me in! it's friday! wishing you all a cold free, sunshiney fall day, vintage finds, cozy blankets & snuggle filled kinda weekend.
