It’s been a little more than six months since I last posted here, which is a record. This blog is ten years old, and I’ve never gone that long without posting! But it was kind of a welcome break–I needed to concentrate on packing up, moving from New Jersey to Washington, getting settled, finding a house, getting H settled at a new school. It’s been a ride, and we’re just starting to settle down.

I started this quilt almost two years ago with a ton of sketches, and it is finally, finally finished. I don’t know why I’ve never posted photos of the progress on this quilt, only sketches. But I’ve worked on it, put it aside, finished the top, put it aside for months upon months before making the backing, and then putting it aside again before I finally got it quilted and bound. But now it’s done…just in time for us to move out of this house, and out of this bedroom that we specifically painted to coordinate with this quilt. It’s like the curse of the boyfriend sweater, but for bedrooms.

We put our house on the market last month and have started packing away. Which means it’s a little quiet here on the creativity front–we’re keeping the house tidy for showings, so no ongoing projects out and taking over my studio. I’ve already started packing some supplies, and the stuff that’s boxed up now I won’t see again until we’re in a house in Seattle, after we rent for a few months.

We have some news—we are moving to Seattle this summer! Well, to the Seattle suburbs. An opportunity came for us to go, and we’re taking it. We went out in early March to look at schools and neighborhoods and fell in love with the area.

This was, by a mile, the best birthday party H has ever had. Four of her friends and their moms met us in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Owl, a unicorn horn store, for a day out in NYC. The moms went for coffee, and Adam and I stayed to take photos of the girls picking out their own special unicorn horns, making unicorn crafts, eating unicorn cupcakes, and solving clues for the store’s magic mirror, which spoke to them and transformed them from little girls into magical unicorns. We could not have packed more unicorns in if we tried, it was fabulous.

Another busy month that’s short on photos. But a great month! We’ve got a few big projects happening around here that I’ll post about as I get through photos and find some time. But H had her 6th birthday, which was amazing (still need to post that one, sheesh). And we’ve just been busy. Have I said we’ve been busy? Yeah, I can’t overstate that. I will post more soon, and I will try to be better about photos for April.

I made this quilt for H’s 6th birthday this week, I finished it last week just in time for her big day on Thursday. I used the Lisa the Unicorn pattern from Elizabeth Hartman, and it was phenomenal. Clear directions, and so much fun to make.

This is a great experiment from our Learning Resources Deluxe Lab Set. It was quick, it wasn’t too messy, and H thought it was completely fascinating. You’ve got all these ingredients at home already, so this is a great one for a snow day (like tomorrow), a rainy day, or just when you need a quick experiment to do with the kids.

We spent Presidents’ Day weekend in Philadelphia, hanging out together and visiting museums.

Saturday morning we headed to Philly and stopped at Legoland Discovery Center Philadelphia, which was actually inside a mall. H loved it, we had a great time there. But, it was pretty packed.

I’ve been neglecting this blog so much this year, but I’ve been on Instagram a LOT. But in another month this blog will turn 10, and I still love it, and still want to keep it chugging along, so I’m trying hard to catch up.
