Finished Project

Sorry, not much time for explanations. The children are chasing each other around the house. I think even the commando-crawling baby is getting involved. The Christmas projects are piling up. But, I wanted to make sure I at least got pictures up.
Bug Quilt- Full View
It's a twin size (approximately 66" by 92") Irish chain made for a commission. (Spread out here on my queen size bed.)
Bug Quilt Irish Chain
They requested the Irish chain in blue and green with bugs, if possible.
Bug Quilt Borders
There are definitely bugs. Love this bug fabric! I'm very glad I ordered extra.
Trees
Apple
Mushrooms
Birds
And, being me, I included places for the bugs to live and things for them to eat. And even a little something to eat them- just so they didn't get too out of control.
Bug Quilt Backing
The backing is my new favorite shade of blue- a deep, bright blue that the picture does not really do justice.
Bug Quilt Binding
The binding is green swirls. The thin green border and the binding remind me of grass. The blue of the backing and the bug border remind me of a bright clear summer sky. So, officially (at least to me) this quilt is titled "A Summer Day". The new owners can call it whatever the heck they want.

Looks like I had more time for explanations than I thought- and no one's even run into a wall.

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






And after. It took two tries-her toe popped up. #baptismday #eightisgreat #familiesareforever A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 1:03pm 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…

Christmas Gifts #1

Most of October, November and December were consumed by secret Christmas craft projects. It's such a relief to finally be able to blog and Instagram about them without worry. It's going to take a couple of blog posts to get through them all.

 First up, my woven projects. I made two scarves- one for my father-in-law's Christmas Eve birthday. Since he bought me my Cricket Loom for my birthday, it was only fitting I weave him something for his birthday.







The second was a super soft and hopefully super classy plaid scarf for my sister-in-law. It was really difficult to pry this one away from Ellery after our little photo shoot. The girl definitely has an appreciation for my handcrafts- especially the soft and cozy ones.
