I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! I’ve found myself up early before both kids, so I thought i’d see how far I could get with this post before the kraken awakens. 😉 But mostly, I wanted to greet you with these beautiful tulips made using fabrics from my second collection, La Conner (available in stores this August!).
These lovely tulips were made by the talented Viktoriia of Color View on Etsy. She was so pleasant to work with and she made them so quickly. I simply sent her my fabric and she made this gorgeous bundle. Be sure to pick up a bundle for yourself – they never wilt! 😉
These tulips were perfect with my La Conner collection, which was inspired by the town of La Conner, Washington – located 1 hour north of Seattle. La Conner is known for their endless fields of tulips in the Spring season. I captured these two photos below in May when visiting.
These tulips made a lovely bunch to display at my Spring quilt market booth. They also made the sweetest little thank you’s for my quilty friends that helped prepare La Conner quilts for my market booth.
On a different note, per usual I’ve been quiet on the blog lately. Here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to…
🙂 Let’s just say this was a totally new experience for me! A few weeks ago I was in Texas filming at Fat Quarter Shop. I was there for two days and we filmed non-stop tutorials for you all! I’m both nervous and excited to share these tutorials with you all. Nervous because i’m dreading seeing myself on camera, oy. But honestly, video tutorials are the most efficient way to explain technique style projects, such as quilt-as-you-go, which I will be sharing with you all!
Be on the lookout for my videos which will eventually appear here and on my blog as well. I will of course let you know when they are ready. Should be within a week or so! Here’s a sneak peak of one of the QAYG projects that we filmed..
Other than my quilty stuff which is keeping my very busy, i’ve had my hands full with these two peanuts! Summer is in full swing at the Brandvig house!
This guy starts kindergarten this September…time slow down!
We’ve been picking blueberries and raspberries from our yard. I cannot thank the lovely woman who lived in our house before us enough, for planting beautiful blueberry bushes along our backyard fence. Thank you, Bonnie. My boys and I have gotten so much joy (and happy tummies) from these blueberry bushes.
Happy tummies indeed! I used this delicious and simple Contest Winning Blueberry Pie recipe. I completely recommend it, and we’ll be making another pie this week as the blueberries keep on coming.
Such a happy site!
Since I’ve somehow started blogging about baking (which was my love before quilting!), I might as well share these lemon bars I made the other day for my husband’s birthday. The recipe uses only 5 ingredients and can be found here. We make them every year. Sooo yummy.
My husband lost his birthday 2 years ago when Simon decided to pop into this world 30 minutes into July 3rd, sharing his birthday. 😉 So a construction site cake for Si, and lemon bars for Dad.
I’ve been a busy mama!
Anyway, i’m feeling triumphant for finishing this blog post before the kids are totally up (I can here their faint awakening cries upstairs now, lol). That being said, I will leave you with this beautiful tulip bundle. Excited to share more with you next time, and as always, thanks for stopping by! Bye-bye!!!
