  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

heather ross dress

I love this horse print from Heather Ross and got 3/4 of a yard to make Ellie another dress from the border print dress tutorial for next summer.

I haven’t been good about photos of the bee blocks I’ve made for the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild bee, but here’s my latest.  Lynn requested pinks, white/creams, and lime greens in this strip pattern with some lace accents.

Audrey - Love that dress! You just reminded me that I have to pick up some of that fabric before it is gone. It is my favorite, favorite print by her!

Lyn - Lovely block! It is now snuggled into my basket, joining the others. These are my daughter’s favorite colors, since she was the size of your dancing girl. I always had to make pink and green things for her. Luckily there was a Care Bear who was a lovely shade of pink with green trim. The cake for Katie McCarty’s First Birthday Bash was just this bear. So, as a mom of a darling daughter, you will appreciate that this quilt will be for my darling daughter who is now 27 years old.
