My Emerald Challenge quilt is coming along! Yet, the deadline is quickly approaching. For me, the first deadline is getting my quilt top ready for the quilter by August 15. After that, I am hoping to have it back by September 15. That gives me two weeks to complete the binding before the October 1 deadline.

How are your Emerald Challenge projects coming along? What are you working on?

Even though the deadline is approaching, I think it is not too late to start a project like a table runner or purse featuring the challenge fabric. I am already excited to see the final results!

Happy stitching,

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
