My reality......

If you've been to my studio before you know that I'm far from perfect. I try to keep it clean and under control but with a 3yr old running around and playing all day every day while I stand at my quilting machine some day's it's far far far from perfect. 
Also, if you were come to my studio on a day that I wasn't expecting you, you'd probably see me like this.
No shoes or socks, I despise shoes and socks. Flip flops all year long, no matter how much snow. 
Showing off my nasty black toe that is still black from the half marathon.
I may be wearing my favorite comfy pants that have lots of worn out spots that my husband despises. :)
You may also find my hair in one of those, just got out of the shower and threw my hair in a pony tail things.
In my studio you may also see way more of these babies than I'd like to admit, especially lately.... I've been working on something exciting, and have needed a little caffeine to stay awake all night, more details to come later. :)
Even though things aren't always perfect and some days I put in way too many hours I will never complain. I really love what I do. I love that I have to opportunity to work, I love that I have the opportunity to spend time with my daughter, I love that I am able to spend a lot of time with my parents and husband, well when I can get him to stay at the studio for more than 5 minutes. 

That's the reality of me in a nutshell. 
I'd love to hear about yours. :)

Taco Soup {a free recipe}

Taco Soup is another "go-to" food in our home. My husband is even a pro at making it.

Carpenters Star Quilt {custom machine quilting}

Susan recently pieced two Carpenters Star Quilts.
I did custom machine quilting on both quilts, they turned out really pretty but the batiks kinda hide the quilting in the photos.

Hope you have a fantastic Wednesday. I can't believe how fast this week, wait this month have gone by.

Long Armed and Dangerously Fast.....

Tomorrow Kathleen and I will be participating in an exciting fundraiser for the Make A Wish foundation of Utah.
Button_Round_White_Bkgd
The Make A Wish foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
The Urban Challenge is sure to be a fun fundraiser. Kathleen and I are gearing up...making t-shirts and a video of ourselves..... (I'll share later) and so excited to participate.... even though we have to run....a lot.... and we haven't run at all since April... We had to come up with a team name after much deliberation we came up with Long Armed and Dangerously Fast... I'm thinking we're probably just a danger to ourselves..

Anyways, one of the challenges for the Urban Challenge Utah is to raise funds for Make A Wish foundation of Utah. We earn points toward our total score for money that we raise. If you'd like to donate to Make A Wish we are raising funds through the Urban Challenge website. Every little bit helps.
