Volunteer Sewing and Family Pics

I'm hemming scarves for my sons' music teacher. In true Heather fashion I heard sewing and signed up without knowing exactly what I was going to have to do. Turns out that she needs this really sheer fabric hemmed. Well, I panicked a little bit, but then decided to go to my local Bernina shop and sure enough they have a foot for exactly that purpose. It's called the Roll and Shell Hemmer. It worked out quite nicely and the hem looks pretty professional, still working on the corners though.

Thought I'd also share some family photos, we had our portraits done at JCPenny this last weekend. I found out that it's nearly impossible for all six of us to face the same way and smile at the same time. I like that they aren't perfect though, it shows everyone's personality.

Check them out here.

One block is better than none

A wonky log cabin, I really like the freedom of the block, we're doing a round robin/swap in my quilt group, and I think I'm going to request wonky log cabins in this color way.

And I just had to add a photo of little Ava, hard to believe how big she's getting!
