Where Oh Where Have I Been?

No blogging, I know. No adding more goodies to the shop, I know. But, but, but.

It's the Holiday Season! And Santa Clause has got a toy... (keep singing, I can't hear).

Ha ha.

But, no really, I've been lots of busy doing fun family stuff, making tons of Christmas presents, and eating waaayyy too many cookies... with milk of course.

I haven't even had any time to even read my favorite blogs lately, boo hoo right??

I just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a Happy or Merry Whatever-You-Celebrate!!

Oh yea, and lots of this:

November 26, 2010


(Warning: non-professional, unrelated photos included.)
I am thankful for my husband.

My family was lucky enough to be invited to my big brother's house yesterday for Thanksgiving. It wasn't that long of a trip, only 1 1/2 hours, but it was well worth the drive.

I am so thankful for the ability to bear children.

Growing up, my Dad would pile 3 crazy, wiggly, and prone to fighting in small places kids into our van and we would drive the 5 1/2 hours to Grandma's house. Yes, over the river and through the woods, lots and lots of woods.

I am thankful for my children.

I wish with all that I could wish with that I could do the same with my children, maybe next year we'll make the trip. Grandma and Grandpa would more then welcome me and my large-ish family, but I think that my 2 boys would just drive them up the wall. The week of Thanksgiving is the first week of hunting season in West Virginia, and there are lots and lots of hunters that drive all the way out to our family property for good game. So, the prospect of hiking and playing outside is greatly diminished. And the thought of 4+ kids in a 600-700 square foot living space is just scary at times.

I am thankful for my family.

Back to yesterday.

I am thankful for the love that we share.

My brother put on quite a spread, and I was very happy to be his wingman for the day. And, I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the sweet potato casserole he whipped up. I think I might actually be able to make and eat sweet potatoes now. The texture of them gets me, yuck. But, his were delicious!

I am thankful for curiosity.

I put together a little craft for the kids to work on, and of course Oma was right in the middle of it all with me. We made placemats, I got the idea from this tutorial for woven placemats, I really liked the finished size of these. However, I didn't find any large construction paper at JoAnn's, so I went with a pad of watercolor paper that was the same size. Wouldn't you know that my kids didn't even want to do it?? So, me and my niece & nephews cranked some out. They quite enjoyed it, as did I.

I am thankful for holiday and projects with the kids.

As this is a time to be thankful for the things in our lives, I am of course thankful for quite a lot. My family, my faith, our health, our home, our talents, and of course our love are just a very few of the things I am thankful for. Some of my most favorite pastimes of the season are crafting with the family, making handmade gifts, and of course baking more cookies/cakes/treats than I should make even in an entire year. I look forward to doing all of this all over again in the next few weeks. Hopefully I can get my living room painted and done before the Christmas decorating really gets rolling though... we shall see.
I am thankful that I live in a land of plenty.

I hope you all have an amazing holiday season!

Crochet Shower Puff

Looking for a quick gift?

This one can be made in less than 2 hours!

So, I tried a few different patterns for making a shower puff. I didn't really like the finished product that I got, one was too big, one felt hollow in the middle, and another just felt so dense.

What's a girl to do?

Make a pattern, of course. The pattern can be finished in about 2 hours, with intermediate skills.

This is a great gift that is very quick to produce, just incase you need a last minute something....

Without further ado, here it is:

-1 skein Lily Sugar N Cream 100% cotton yarn
-size G crochet hook

ch= chain
sl st= slip stitch
sc= single crochet

Ch 35, sl st to first ch. This is the handle.

Ch 6, sl st into where you just joined the loop for the handle.

Round 1- Ch 4, sc into smaller loop. *Ch 3, sc in smaller loop*, repeat from * to * 18 more times, making 20 loops total.

Round 2- Ch 5, sc into first loop of Round 1. *Ch 4, sc in same loop. Ch 4, sc in same loop (total of two times). Ch 4, sc in next loop.* Repeat from * to * all the way around. You should now have 60 loops.

Round 3- Ch 6, sc into first loop of Round 2. *Ch 5, sc in same loop. Ch 5, sc in same loop. Ch 5, sc in same loop (three times total). Ch 5, sc in next loop.* Repeat from * to * all the way around. You should have 240 loops now. I know it sounds like a lot, and if you don't have that many, know one will know but you ( ha ha ha, in my best evil chuckle).

Tie off, weave in ends, and call it a day, you're done!

I was able to make 2 puffs out of one skein of yarn, I only had about 3 to 4 yard left though, so be careful.

Happy Hooking!

Edited to add: I would LOVE to see any projects you create with this pattern! Feel free to join & share in my Flickr group: Your Lyanna Jean Designs.

I feel productive... well somewhat

I finally got my computer back, and actually hooked it all up. Why is it so terrible to actually plug all the junk in sometimes??

Better yet, why didn't I think to get my hus to do it?!

So, that isn't my 'productiveness' I'm referring to in my post title, though somedays it sure feels like things like that are my only ounce of productivity for the day... yea.

In case you haven't notice, I managed to put together a new blog header:

I quite like it. My first photo montage one. And, yes, I know it's at the top of the blog, but I wanted it in a post so that if someday I feel like making a book out of this nonsense, then it's in here.

Also, I managed to bind & wash the custom quilt I'm making. It's my first one!!

I'm off to deliver it today, it was requested by an acquaintance, and I'll be in the area she works today, so it works out great. Besides, this way I don't have to take 3 kids to the post office... we all know how fun that is (either personally, or watching the poor woman behind you do it).

Have a great last weekend before the holiday madness! Yup, Turkey Day is next week.

A Day in The Life

Yesterday was a long one.

Woke at 4am- sew for 1 1/2 hours.

6am, Breakfast for the masses

7am, Off to School

9am, Inchworms class at the Y for my little man, his first day and he's not too sure, but LOVES it! (I get to crochet in the waiting room for about 1 hour, score)

11:30am, Pick up the big man at Pre-K, but we're a little early so I get to squeeze in a little knitting (I keep some in the car). He had a good day today.

12noon, Lunch, Daddy comes home today and our little princess is overjoyed.

1pm, Time for a nap (not for me, bummer), and more crochet time while I wait (watch) for them to go to sleep.

2pm, More sewing to do... man, am I glad I like to do all this, haha. The big man has decided that today is not a good day for a nap for him, apparently working on his letters is more important today....

4pm, Everyone's up, and Daddy comes home to tell me MeMa is on her way, and just the grow ups are going to see a movie!! (By the way, Red was good).

(This is what happens when you try to get them to actually sit together for a photo.)

7pm, Home from an impromptu date night (I didn't even get to get all cute... how could he be spontaneous?? No, really, I was wearing faded jeans and a hoodie.)

Now it's bath-time, 3 in a row.

8:30pm, Little miss princess has retired for the evening, now we just have to wrangle the boys to be quiet and not wake her, and by quiet I only mean prevent them from yelling/screaming. (Apparently when there are 2 boys instead of just 1, there is no sense of volume control.)

10pm, finally we all get to sleep. And, I get to start all over again at 4am.

You know, I think I would die if I had to do a 9 to 5...

*All the photos were taken on a different day. Don't you just love the 80's look? haha

October 28, 2010


I finally finished picking out all the quilting I did on my first King.

Now, I get to pack it away till after Christmas so I can get all my presents done... whole 'nother world, holiday gift making is.

Been lots of busy lately too.

Got another custom request, this time it's a quilt though. Here's my fabric pallet I'm using:

There's some from the 'Boy, Oh, Boy' line done by Holly Holderman. I just love this line and the girly one she did like it. Whatever isn't in this line is just coordinating fabrics. Gotta love Chick's N Stitches for nice selection.

I bought between 30 and 40 pounds of apple seconds at Willey Farms in Townsend, DE yesterday for $10, oh yea.

So, last night I made my first batch of applesauce. My house smells amazing!!

I'm hoping to get 2 more batches of sauce and one batch of apple butter out of the lot. I love canning.

October 18, 2010

Where has time gone?

I thought that things were supposed to be calmer, a little less stressful, and far more productive after your kids start the school year.

Well, I feel like I just managed to get out from under the proverbial rock.

Mind you, I have been less stressed, there is two less monsters to reek havoc around the house all day, and, yes, I have been much more productive (especially during naptime).

But I feel like I haven't done anything since school started...

We have been doing lots of this:

And I have gotten a lot of this done:

I am cutting pieces for I-Spy Bag Service Project at Church, as well as cutting my scraps into 1 1/2" & 2 1/2" strips and 2" squares (so I can actually use them... haha).

I have added quite a few things to the "To-Do" list, and am trying to reorganize a lot.

We have officially lived in our first house for a year now! And... I'm looking around at everything that hasn't gotten used or even unpacked yet, yea.

Granite, most of the unpacked boxes are books. We have accumulated quite a few books since both my husband and I love books (at least we have collected all the ones we want to read, with 4 young kids it's kinda hard to fit in some peace and quite...)

Thankfully, bookcases are a part of re-doing the living room. Finally decided on a paint color for the living AND dining room (they are kinda one big room with a railing and 2 steps between), and even bought it too. YES! I really want more definition between the two, what do you think (both colors are from Sherwin-Williams):

Hep Green- Living Room Color
Vanillin- Dining Room Color

The Vanillin is a little more yellow than is pictured on the Sherwin-Williams website.

Another completely awesome thing that happened lately was that my mom gave me her buffet since she got a new one! Ohh, it's so nice to have more storage for kitchen/dining things. But, the best part of it is that I finally have a place to put decorations and my chachkies!! oh yea...

Now I have something to make a table runner for, cause making one for my actual table would just be silly (haha). But, no, my kids would wreck it if it were on the table, between the food and projects.

Howard's Shirts #1

This was the project that easily deterred me from working on my King.
A friend of mine from church lost her husband this past summer. This particular couple was an amazing example to us all. They are the kind of people that you wish there were more of in the world!
After a little time had went by, I sent her a message asking if I could make her a quilt using her husband's (Howard's) button down shirts.
Now, I hadn't spent lots of time with this couple outside of church, so I wasn't quite sure what type of fabric, or what types of pattern's I'd be working with; plaids, hawaiians, solids, etc.
I was so happy when she said yes!
To get to the good part, here is one of the quilts I made for her. She gave me lots and lots of solids, whew, and she gave me so many that I was able to separate the colors and make 2 different quilts.
Here is the lighter/pastels quilt. I quite like how it turned out.

I plan to start on the next one right after the holidays. Very excited to see how it turns out!

Part 6: Along For the Project - My First King

Lets just say that I really liked the varigated blue thread for the quilting that I choose, I wanted the quilt to be "different".

Lets also say that when I started quilting it, I really liked it. It looked good on the dark green.

Lets further say that I continued to quilt, that day during naptime, and made quite a bit of progress, quilting 4 of the 15 inch squares of the 25 total in the quilt.

The next day, I wasn't so sure I loved it anymore. So, I didn't want to work on it...


The day after that, I decided I didn't like it anymore at all. Enter the seam ripper, but not quite.

I completely lost my desire to work on this quilt, OHHH NNNOOOOO!!!

So, what was I to do???

What any sane quilter would do, I got out a large plastic storage bag from a blanket I bought quite a while ago, and I folded my giant, king-sized quilt up, placed all the extra fabric and scraps on top, put it in the bag, zipped it up, and put it away.

Crap, now I have ANOTHER ufo on my list...

This thought lingered, and so did my dreams of finishing this monster (noticed the transition...).

An idea!! I can just use white thread and do straight-ish lines on the quilt, that is after I take out all the blue...

So, I have been pulling quilted stitches out for about a week now, working on it while I wait in my rocking chair for babies to fall asleep. I think I will be done pulling it out within about 3 days.

Now I'm excited about it again.

And it only spent about a month in exile...

Friday Find: Fabric Organizers

Yay for the First Friday of FALL!!!

Needless to say, fall is my favorite season. I don't usually say autumn, not sure why... maybe it's because "happy autumn y'all" just isn't as cute as

Happy Fall Y'all!

On to the Friday Find!

Let me start by saying I wish I wish I had a ton of these!!! I just don't have a room for sewing yet, so no place for my stash to be pretty on these.

The Fabric Organizers are made by DeNiece's Designs.  They come in 2 sizes, large and small, and can hold lots of fabric! For all the specifics head over to their website: The Fabric Organizer.

(Photo from The Fabric Organizer website)

They even have a video with how they put their fabric on them.

All I have to say is: awesomeness!

My First Fabric Based Bus Trip- Eastern PA Fabric Shops

I really feel like I can call myself a fabric addict now. 

I went on a bus trip, sat on the bus for 2+ hours just to get to the destination, and woke up before 5am to get to the meeting point, all to BUY FABRIC! Oh, and look at tons of really awesome quilts too.

Wanna know where I went??

Lancaster, PA, of course!

Here's the shops that were on "the list":

    I think that Burkholder's, Log Cabin, and Zook's were my favorite, and in that order. Sauder's and Zook's had the best prices by far, and had a really big selection too.

    I didn't get into Bitty Kinna's, but heard from the other ladies on the trip that it was quite nice.

    Burkholder's was so pretty to just walk inside and look around. They had the store so well organized, it was almost like fabric heaven. They even had a playground outside, genius!

    This is what one of their isles looked like, I wish they had a photo of what it looks like once you walk in the door, breathtaking. Just look:

    (Photo from Burkholder's site)
    The new "thing" in fabrics is fruits and veggies. These fabrics were everywhere! I got a FQ pack at Burkholders that was folded up like a 6 point star, so very cute. Here's a pic of the vast selection (so yummy, hehe):

    (Photo from Burkholder's site)
    I even took my soon-to-be eight-year-old (her birthday is next month), and she had fun too! She was much more well behaved than I even hoped she would be, woohoo! Kit had to come along too, of course.

    I'll post a few photos of the goodies I got soon.

    Sauder's had the cheapest prices of all the stores we ventured to (and I bought almost all of my fabric from this shop). The shop itself felt like someone's basement, with an attic room that housed their bolt sale. I totally didn't have a problem with it, but it just didn't give it any bonus points for me. Thanks for the Beatle's Panels for only $2 each! yea.

    In the downstairs of The Quilt & Fabric Shack, they had lots of notions for really cheap! I found some sleeping bag zippers for only $8.75! For reals...

    For lunch, we ate at the Kettle Cafe. They had a soup of the day that was Chicken & Corn soup, ohh so yummy!! And, my little LuLu had a chicken nugget meal which she got a coupon to decorate a gingerbread cookie, much fun!

    We finished up the trip with dinner at CiCi's pizza. It was fun and totally great for kids. Miss LuLu got to veg out and watch SpongeBob, she was very happy.

    Can't WAIT till next year's trip!!

    Friday Find: The Stay Pincushion

    This weeks Friday Find is another project. I just happened to stumble upon it, and really think it's quite awesome!

    Madame Samm over at Sew I Quilt has a tut for this pin cushion that rests on the arm of your sewing machine.

    (Photo courtesy of Sew I Quilt)

    I really think this needs to go on the "to-make" list... maybe add some pretties to it, like maybe a wool flower.

    My "New" Chandelier

    When we bought our house, one of the I'd say top 10 things I really didn't like, at all, was the light in our dining room:

    Yea, it's ugly. I don't do brass fixtures.

    So, trying to not blow our budget last month, and not wanting to invest in a serious make-over by getting a thrifted light, I just went to Home Depot and picked up some spray paint (I could live with a splurge of about $4). I made sure to get the kind that sticks to everything, especially metal, since that's what I was gonna paint (I had no idea there were so many types of spray paint).

    Down it came.

    I put three coats of paint on it, and made sure it dried really well between coats. I took full advantage of a 100 degree day.

    I also decided to use etching cream on the glass things that went over the lights (wow, that was technical... the thingy for the thingy right??).

    I am very happy with how it turned out, actually, I think it's quite a nice light now.

    The best part is: my husband actually likes it.

    Simplicity Pattern B5301 Review

    A very good friend of mine just became a nurse. Yahoo!! No It's kinda funny, this was the friend of mine who couldn't stand blood back in the day.

    Yea, she's a nurse, and a kick-a one at that. (I am pretty sure she's over the blood thing by now...)

    What do you get for a new/just graduated nurse?? Well, you don't get them anything, you make them some hot-to-trot scrub tops!

    Now, I am not one to just pull something like scrubs out of my butt without a pattern the first go round, or second, or third, for that matter. Thankfully there is a sale on patterns at almost all times at Joann's.

    $1.99 for the Simplicity B5301.

    (Photo courtesy of

    So, of course I had to go buy some fabric for this... heaven forbid I use my stash... hehe.

    I used butcher paper to transfer the pattern onto this time. I usually just use tissue paper for wrapping presents, but I knew I was going to make a couple of these. I stacked the fabric on the fold to cut out the fronts and backs, then just rearranged what was left to cut out the pockets, sleeves, and collar.

    On to the actual review:

    Pattern Description: This description is from the pattern envelope:

    The V-neck scrub top features comfortable t-shirt ease, shirt sleeves, and styled pockets. The specially fitted sleeves allow more arm movement for a full-figured woman. The elastic waist pants with side seam pockets have been specially drafted to fit the correct waistline slant of a full-figured woman. Directions for a drawstring waistline are also included.

    Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yea, it was a drawing, so it wasn't all cartoon-y (hehe), but it did look a lot like the drawing, the top doesn't have waist definition like the drawing though.

    Written Instructions: The written instructions are very clear, easy to follow, and have ample amounts of photos.

    What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like how the pattern chose to instruct sewing the sleeves on. I like sewing a sleeve on before sewing the side seams.

    Fabric Used: I just used woven cotton, the fabric that the pattern recommends.

    Level Of Difficulty: I would say that this is a good beginner pattern. The collar is a little tricky, but it's more maneuvering of fabric than the actual pattern itself.  
    Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
    The only tip I have for the pattern is to sew the bottom pockets on about 1/2 inch above where it is marked on the pattern. I suggest this because the first one I assembled, the hem would have been sewn about 1/2 inch up into the actual pocket, no good.
    Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yup, I would sew it again. I am making 3 of them. I would recommend this pattern.

    Conclusion: This pattern is very well written, and even has instructions in it to alter it for common body shapes that the basic pattern was not drafted for, like a fuller bust, petite or tall sizes, and even pear shapes.

    On a final note, I would just like to apologize to all nurses, you do some of the most important work and yet you wear clothing that makes you look very blob-ish. I am truly sorry, not that my typical jeans & t-shirt wardrobe is that much better...

    The Brick Wall Quilt Pattern

    It all started with a 3 pound cotton assortment from that contained much more browns than I was ready for. I had no idea what to do with them.

    I was thinking about things outside that I like. I live in Dover, DE, so we have a pretty ample supply of very old buildings. Among my most favorites are brick buildings.

    Hmm, lots of brown fabric, and a liking to bricks... not too tough, right?!

    Next step, the drawing board:

    I don't really sketch in any particular order, but the amount of fabric needed is almost always the last thing to be figured out.

    Thanks to Wikipedia, the standard U.S. brick size is:  8" wide, 4" high, and 2 1/4" deep.

    I went with that measurement and created this quilt.

    Here's the tutorial:

    - 16 Fat Quarters
    - 3 yards backing fabric, or material cut/pieced to measure 48" by 68"
    - batting measuring at least 48" by 68"
    - 1/2 yard for binding

    - 94 rectangles measuring 8 1/2" by 4 1/2"
    - 16 squares measuring 4 1/2" by 4 1/2"
    - 6 strips of binding, 2 1/2" wide by the width of fabric for the length

    Sew 9 rows as follows: one 4 1/2" square, then three 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" rectangles, then one 4 1/2" square.

    Sew 8 rows of six 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" rectangles.

    You should now have 17 rows measuring 48" by 4 1/2".

    Figure out the order you want the rows to be in, alternating the rows to stagger the blocks. I made sure that none of the blocks touched another block of the same fabric. Sew the rows together horizontally. Your top is done!

    (This is not that great of a pic, but it got the true colors the best of the couple I took.)

    Now, lay your backing right side down, lay the batting on top, then place the top on top of these 2 layers, pin all layers together, and quilt as desired. When I pin my quilt, I try to think about where I am going to quilt it so that I don't put the pins there. It goes a LOT faster if you aren't taking pins out every 5 seconds.

    Attach binding, and your done. I recently found a GREAT tutorial for doing the binding, which is my absolute least favorite part of quilting. But, Rita over at Red Pepper Quilts has the right idea about binding!

    Just look how great it turned out:

    Edited to add: I would LOVE to see any blocks/projects you create with this pattern! Feel free to join & share in my Flickr group: Your Lyanna Jean Designs.

    Social Media Icons

    Yesterday morning, I had no idea what the name for those cute little buttons that are usually all in a row on blogs that link you up to other social networking sites.

    Well, they're called social media icons.

    And, you can get some really awesome ones for FREE, that's right, free.

    I picked my bottle cap ones up at Six Revisions, and I think they rock.

    I love bottle caps, especially vintage ones. Once upon a time, I actually collected them.... Then I graduated from high school and went through a purging stage, I am still upset about some of the things I got rid of.

    Either way, these babies were too fun for me to pass up. Now, I just need to get an awesome new header...

    Here's a place to find more free social media icons.

    I've Decided a Few Things

    I think I am just not liking the blue varigated thread on my king sized quilt I'm making for my friend's wedding. Err. Time to take it out and start over with the quilting... fun times.

    Right now I am working on a charity quilt for Anna Maria Horner's Rainbow Around the Block project. It's quite cute I think. A couple months ago I ordered a 3 pound cotton remnant assortment from, and I managed to get about 7 or 8 fat quarters that were various shades of brown. Now, I'm not too crazy about brown, but I decided to run with it. I actually bought a few more fat quarters to go along with these, and now I'm making them into a Brick Wall quilt. I'll put up the pattern once I've completed it, very simple though.

    I also decided this week that I want to start making my own patterns. All too often I buy a pattern for something, spend lots of time cutting it all out and (mostly) following it's instructions (I've been sewing for about 20 years now, so I am pretty familiar with how most things are made). I guess the only reason I do it is because I've been somewhat lazy, or busy/overloaded... who knows. Then the article of clothing doesn't really fit right, and then the person it's made for just complains (no names, you know who you are, wink wink).

    So, I ordered a few books this week from Amazon (love love that website). 

    Here's what I'm getting:
    I got Sew U because sometimes I just have issues with sewing finer knits, lets just stick with "issues". And, I noticed that Dana over at Made had it as one of her favorite books right now, and she's just a genius with knits!!

    I promise I've been productive lately, I even did a project with knits that turned out pretty good. I'm just tired of my horrible photos all taken between 3 and 5 am with even more horrible lighting. I'm hoping to take a naptime this week and head outside to take some pics. Wish me luck...

    Friday Find: Sew a Straight Line

    In case you haven't heard, the lady behind Sew a Straight Line is pretty awesome. She has committed to challenge herself to step up her sewing skills by sewing through an old college sewing textbook.

    I think that is awesome!! Maybe I should look around for a sewing textbook, I know I could use some up-ing of my skills ;)

    She's got some pretty awesome tutorials too, like: Star Pin Cushion, Rolled Kitchen Towels, To Make a Fitted Diaper, and The Domesticated Skirt.

    Mind you, this is just a few of her tutorials.

    The best best thing about Sew a Straight Line, is that she has a post with link parties for each day of the week! How awesome is that?!

    So, hop on over and check out Sew a Straight Line.

    Needless to say, my first king has officially been put on hold for at least 1 week, and no more than 2!!

    I have a yard sale/craft sale coming up this weekend, so I want to get a few things made up to have a bit more that just what's in my etsy shop.

    (Some flowers my daughter is growing, pretty.)
    My #3 kiddo is turning 3 the end of this month, and I want to get a banner made up, so I can finally have one...

    Also, I have a few miscellaneous projects that I need to get a start on for the holidays, and birthdays.

    You see, my kids birthdays fall in June, August, October, and December, so the second half of the year is all birthday and all holiday... fun times.

    On another note, here's a pillow I made on Tuesday. I quite like it, I did a hidden zipper on one side, and I think I'm in love with how it turned out. I don't think I'll be doing too many envelope cases now.

    It was so easy to cut it out and attach the trim, I just followed the pattern in the fabric. It matched up perfectly at the seams too!! Yay.
