Sarah’s Quilt

So I haven’t even started working on Emmie’s maxi-dress because I recently had some plans change around here, instead of going to the US for July with my whole family, now only I am going for a week, to see my Gramma (who will be visiting from South Africa,) and be part of Sarah’s baby…

Sarah’s Maxi Dress

Remember when I showed pictures of us at the beach and said that Sarah had let me take some pictures of the dress we made her? Here are the pictures of the dress we made her! We used Butterick B5763 to make the dress, altering only the sleeves, the length, and the fabric choice. (She…

I’m Back! {photos of the day}

Sorry I have been so absent around here the last little bit, my sweet sister Sarah came into town, and we have been CRAZY busy, and I just haven’t had even a minute to blog. (The last 2 weeks have flown by and been way too short, we dropped Sarah off at the airport today,…

Yo, Ho, Ho, and a Bottle of Rum!

My quilt that I have been working on with my sister Sarah (she and I are each making one) is finally done (I am afraid I jumped ahead and finished mine before she was done with her’s because she is home in Phoenix for the next couple of days!) We found the adorable pirate fabric…

Almost Home

We are in the long term parking lot of the airport, a three hour drive from home, just over 24 hours after starting our travel back from Peru yesterday morning! The Inca Trail was amazing and grueling, but I will share details later, a I am honestly just too exhausted to do anything right now…

Cuy, The Other White Meat.

So my brother in-law Scott decided to order guinea pig / cuy for dinner tonight, and Sarah and I decided that we would be really brave and try it (even though I have previously made statements to the contrary!) I like to think of myself as adventurous and stuff, but this was a bit of…

Hola Kids!

I am mostly writing about our adventures in Peru so my kids can keep up with what we are doing, so feel free to skip these posts! Today as part of our Peruvian tour we went to Pisac and saw the ruins there (I ended up out of breath like woah, the altitude kicked my…

Our Hotel in Cusco

The hotel we are staying at in Cusco is an old Incan palace that has been rebuilt into a hotel and is just stunning! It’s called the Unaytambo hotel, and we would honestly stay here again in a heartbeat! I don’t have any in room photos yet, but here is the courtyard, The stone around…

In Peru!

It seems I can get Internet in our hotel, so I can upload my phone posts! Oh my gosh, we had to run like crazy in the Lima airport to get through security, an to our flight with seconds to spare! We had a series of perfect events in which our bags came off the…
