more my small world jen kingwell



this has been a crazy fun messy summer project ~inspired by verykerryberry jen kingwell my small world i am about 2/3rds into it and i am crazy in love

using fun itty bitty scraps and loving all the teeny tiny blocks...mostly between 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 "

i have been playing with this part .....definitely my favorite section of all
my cutting table has been one hot colorful mess all summer... i started back here in july
    this has been a great little project to have over the busy summer when i really don't get much sew time...and as i said before i could not find the quiltmania special spring edition with the pattern for this crazy fun mysmallworldqal by jen kingwell with verykerryberry but i fell  soooo hard and decided to plug along without it and  thanks to verykerryberry and instagram ~ hashtag #mysmallworldqal there is oodles of great inspirations and i am doing ok...feeling quite challenged but i love improvising.
i LOVE jen kingwell so much i did order her quilt lovely and it does have some similar lovlies in there. xoxo   

happy sunday xo pam

we hiked

to silver falls
we walked in the grove of the patriarchs

we also did the  naches peak loop
and the mt. fremont trail was complete with a mighty mt. rainier backdrop

 this was the view north from a fire look out
the amazing view along the ridge ~ it was a great weekend for sure...we were all sad to say goodbye
meanwhile this is what's happening in the sewing room...i did some feathers and lines on diane's sweet baby girl and matching dolly quilt backed w the softest white rose minky xo

and i got started on katherine's beauty w swirl and twirl from lorien

good old summertime 2015




i have a great stack of books this summer...with great intentions...

just got back from another camping trip...

we were in southern washington at maryhill state park  on the great columbia river gorge

i LOVE our little trailer ~ i made the lotta jansdotter curtains and quilt  in 2012 ~ the special hang onto my heart is made by dottie angel


some amazing vantage points and history here xo


one of  the petroglyphs that were saved back when the columbia river was dammed in 1957

love  our good camping friends
and we enjoyed  being in wine country ~ many vineyards to choose from ~ we had a few great wine tastings xo

we celebrated nick's 55th when we got back from camping...his first as a grampa...baby milo slept through it all xo

this girl made a lemon meringue pie for her dad xoxo


and this has been my summer playtime...it is jen kingwell ~ my small world ~ verykerryberry is doing a quiltalong that caught my attention...i was not able to find the spring quiltmania with this pattern but with the help of kerry berry [thankyou] i am getting along and loving the challenge and  inspiration xo


and this is our  garden gone wild with the  pacific northwest heat wave ...we will have PUMPKINS this year...lots of them...these seeds came from isaac and ani's  special home grown pumpkins last halloween...and i am thinking free pumpkins all around this year xo
