So this week I was inspired by my friend, Sandra. She is planning a quilt/blanket with a panel of a world map. I have the same panel and have decided to try to make a full size quilt with it in the center of the quilt. Not exactly sure how that will come about.
No pattern yet or anything! 🙂
However, I went to the fabric store (actually all of them in town!) to try and find some fun stuff to match the map. I was actually looking for something with like, kids of the world or something. So far nothing along those lines. But walking into the store and seeing all the possibilities was FUN!!

I love how they have arranged the bolts by colors!

Just makes me want to SEW!!!! Something, anything!!

Here is the map panel. (I used the photo from Sandra’s blog, easier than taking it myself)

The fabrics I have chosen so far.

Here they are laid out together. The lighting seems sort of off, but you get the idea. I would like to find one more fabric. I am not giving up yet on something with children of the world.

Well, I hit the jackpot this past week! I found some amazing “China” scrapbook paper for Joshua’s China book. I found it at

It has not been easy finding nice background paper for China. I had found some stickers and my friend Ginger had also found some and sent them to me back when we were in Albania and we had begun the waiting process for Joshua. But I had an entire book to do and so wanted a bit more paper to use. Anyway, I was so excited to find this. The website is awesome! They have TONS of different places. You can search by the places you want which are listed alphabetically.

This past week I got to go to a Saturday crop and work for 8 hours without interruption!! Below are my pages.

Sorry it is a little fuzzy. Not sure, but I think I moved the camera!

At the crop, my friend had this new electronic device that cut the shapes I used on this page. So cool!!

Another fuzzy one, sorry!

Here is another layout where I needed just a little more space and so I added the fold outs.
