I Need Your Help

So, I finished another baby quilt top. Yeah, I know- yet another one. Good thing I happen to live in Provo, Utah- the baby capital of the world.

Bright Baby Quilt Top

When I started this, I was thinking I wanted it to be uni-sex but it would probably be for a girl. Well, now its probably for a boy. That's where I need your help.

Too Girly?

Is this too girly? It's got some floral prints and purple that I would have left out if I was thinking boy while I was putting it together. Should I find a girl to give it to or would it be fine for a boy?

(My two favorite squares.)

I also made a cat toy for Anna today.

If I had a boy, I would LOVE it for him. I think there is enough going on that no one is going to look that closely.
PS When I have a kid, you can recreate this quilt if you want. :)

It could totally be for a boy! I have 3, and I would use it for them.

The quilters in my office love it and say it would be great for either gender.

I vote unisex! It will be great for a boy or a girl.
It looks terrific!

I think it would be fun if you saved it for someone who doesn't find out what they are having!! I think it's great for a boy though! Love it, great job!! It's funny to look at the quilt and see lots of fabric prints that I own in there!

I think it's great for either a boy or a girl! It's a beautiful quilt.

it is perfect for either boy or girl, why do boys should be spared from flowers on quilts? your colour choice is so bright and cheerful, great!

Momma's Got a (kind-of, sorta) Brand New Bag

I must be some sort of sadist. It seems the work and stress of getting a family of five all packed and ready for a big trip isn't enough for me. It's becoming tradition to also try and make myself a new complicated bag right before we leave. There was the Supertote before Disneyland. This time around it was the a messenger bag right before a 4,000 mile road trip.

(Photography and photo styling by my 10 year old, Anna.)

 There was really no choice, though. My everyday Supertote is a year and a half old. It was definitely looking it. The handles were all frayed. One of the magnetic snaps had ripped out. It was dirty. It just would not do. I tried stores. Everything was too big, too small, too strappy, not strappy enough, too ugly, or too expensive. I guess making my own bags has made me pretty dang picky when it comes to purses.

This one, though. This one is pretty much the prefect size, the perfect strap, the perfect fabric, and plenty of pockets.

Something A Little Different

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that for my birthday this week, I got a weaving loom of my very own. Specifically, a 15" Cricket Loom. There was some major happy dancing involved.

Feeling a little nervous. #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:06am PDT

Now what do I do with it? #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:41am PDT

WooHoo! Thank goodness for the many YouTube videos which got me here! A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 10:39am PDT
I spent all morning on my birthday watching YouTube instructional videos, putting it together, getting it warped, and starting my very first handwoven scarf using bits and pieces of yarn leftover from other projects.

Today I finished it.

Sure, it's got some issues. The edges are a bit wonky. The fringe went all fuzzy when I washed it. But, I love it. I love how thin and drap…

Ellery's Baptism and the First Day of School

Exciting times around our household in the past week. This Saturday, Ellery was baptized.

Almost time to go! #baptismday #eightisgreat A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 9:10am PDT

She was so happy and excited. It was a great day.

And then, today, the kids finally started school! Hallelujah!

The local school district went back to school like two and a half weeks ago. We've all been anxiously waiting for their charter school to start.

First grade for this guy and an empty house for me. Every summer I let his hair grow wild so that I can enjoy his curls. I was all ready to give him his standard back to school haircut until we went to meet his teacher. She went into raptures over his curls. So, they stayed. We'll see how long they last now that he has to face a squirt bottle and a bru…
