Learning Embroidery

In my shop at LittleMamaHenCo
 A couple of weeks ago was our Spring Break vacation here in Florida.  My husband and I are not beach goers; so, we packed up the kids and headed to the mountains!  I usually bring cross-stitching with me while we are traveling, but this time I decided to try my hand at embroidering.

It all started when I was browsing instagram and found Fabric and Ink .  She has the most darling creations ever!  I then went on youtube and looked up some "how-to" videos on embroidery.  I immediately fell in love with the French Knot! 

Embroidery is a great travel craft!  It's not the same as quilting, but it makes me happy to see all those tiny knots form into creations. 

Today being Sunday means that we will be heading to the Homeschool Resource Center to try and finish-up painting the backdrops for my daughter's school play coming up in May.  Her homeschool Drama Group is presenting Beauty and the Beast Jr.  I can't wait!

The Florida rain hasn't started yet.  Even my kids are starting to 'whine' about missing the Thunder and storms.  So until then, I'll sit at my bay window and listen to Thunderstorms on youtube while binding my latest baby quilt.

Happy Sunday,
-April @ Little Mama Hen

Summer Totes

What a busy week!! We've been having so much fun: swimming, painting, nature walks, gardening, chalk murals, and summer totes!!!  I've been wanting to make totes and summer seemed a perfect time.   Of course, it is very important to include the kids in my summer craft activities.  So, Little Man, Ladybug, and my sister's grandbaby, Little Queen, picked out an animal hand-print that they wanted on their totes.  

I should have videoed the process of painting the kids feet and hands and then printing them onto the Fabric!  Utter Chaos!  It was so funny!  I couldn't have done it without my sister. After they hand/foot printed their fabric, I let them dry overnight.  Then I painted over the prints with Mod Podge and let them dry again.  Then I sewed them up into totes (Tutorial Here)!!  It is super easy and oh so cute.  I've finished Little Man's and Little Queen's and I MUST finish Ladybug's this weekend!!  Little Man isn't really "into" paint…

EZ Dresden Challenge

Do you ever start out to do something and then you find your path shifting in a different direction.  I have found in life that this usually leads me to good things.

Well, several months ago I read about the EZ Dresden Challenge and I wanted to make a quilt to participate.  I love dresdens; in fact, I used the Darlene Zimmerman's ruler and pattern for my first quilt! (Picture Here) My fist design (Here) was and will be stunning (the red and black one) but for some reason I got distracted with making dresdens to use up my scraps.

I knew right away that this quilt would go to a charity.  (I blogged about it Here) It was such FUN to make and I know that I will make more.  My Mom is working to find 'her' the right home and I hope that it will be a blessing for whoever receives it. For me, the little scraps are symbolic of what might have been thrown away, discarded, considered of no value.  But with a little love, patience, and inspiration,  what was considered lost was foun…
