2014 stargazing

just like last year, i wanted to share a little stargazing printable with you. stargazing is one of my most favorite things to do. it’s so romantic and peaceful, don’t you think? watching the universe in this way always makes me feel in awe of God’s greatness and power and i feel so fortunate to be able to sit back and admire it.

january 5 - jupiter at opposition. the giant planet will be at its closest approach to earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the sun. this is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons.

march 20 – occultation of regulus. an extremely rare event will take place on the morning of thursday, march 20. an asteroid known as 163 erigone will pass in front of the bright star regulus in the constellation of leo, causing the star to disappear.

april 8 – mars at opposition. the red planet will be at its closest approach to earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the sun. this is the best time to view and photograph mars.

april 15 – total lunar eclipse. a total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes completely through the earth’s dark shadow, or umbra.

april 22-23 – lyrids meteor shower. the lyrids is an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. it is produced by dust particles left behind by comet c/1861 g1 thatcher, which was discovered in 1861.

may 5-6 – eta aaquarids meteor shower. an above average shower, capable of producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. most of the activity is seen in the southern hemisphere. it is produced by dust particles left behind by comet halley, which has known and observed since ancient times.

may 10 – saturn at opposition. the ringed planet will be at its closest approach to earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the sun. this is the best time to view and photograph saturn and its moons.

may 24 – possible meteor storm. in the early morning hours of saturday, may 24, the earth will pass through the debris field left behind by a small comet known as p/209 linear. astronomers are predicting that this interaction may result in a brief but intense burst of meteor activity that could range from dozens to hundreds of meteors per hour. nothing is certain, but many mathematical models are predicting that this could be the most intense meteor shower in more than a decade.

june 7 – conjunction of the moon and mars. the moon will pass within two degrees of the the planet mars in the evening sky. the gibbous moon will be at magnitude -12.2 and mars will be at magnitude -0.8. look for both objects in the western sky just after sunset.

july 28-29 – delta aquarids meteor shower. an average shower that can produce up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. it is produced by debris left behind by comets marsden and kracht.

august 12-13 -  perseids meteor shower. one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. it is produced by comet swift-tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. the Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors.

august 18 – conjunction of venus and jupiter. conjunctions are rare events where two or more objects will appear extremely close together in the night sky. the two bright planets will come unusually close to each other, only a quarter of a degree, in the early morning sky.

october 8 – total lunar eclipse. a total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes completely through the earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. during this type of eclipse, the moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color.

october 8-9 – draconids meteor shower. a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. it is produced by dust grains left behind by comet 21P giacobini-zinner, which was first discovered in 1900.

october 22, 23 – orionids meteor shower. an average shower producing up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. it is produced by dust grains left behind by comet halley, which has been known and observed since ancient times.

october 23 – partial solar eclipse. a partial solar eclipse occurs when the moon covers only a part of the sun, sometimes resembling a bite taken out of a cookie.

december 13-14 – geminids meteor shower. the king of the meteor showers. it is considered by many to be the best shower in the heavens, producing up to 120 multicolored meteors per hour at its peak. it is produced by debris left behind by an asteroid known as 3200 phaethon, which was discovered in 1982.

reversible apron pattern

October 9, 2013

reversible apron pattern by bonnie christine

hey friends! a few of you may know, i got my start selling aprons and tea towels on etsy about 6 years ago. though i don’t sell aprons any more, they are still one of my most favorite items to make! i just love wearing a pretty apron while i cook, don’t you?

to celebrate my latest fabric line, reminisce, i’m sharing with you the very apron pattern i made to get my start in the handmade industry all those years ago. it’s tried and true, fits beautifully and is easy to make. keep reading for the how-to and downloadable pdf pattern!

reversible apron pattern by bonnie christine (1)

supplies:

- pdf pattern (download here)
- 1 yard each of two coordinating  fabrics (we used timeless rosewood and sweet nostalgia antique)
- scissors
- rotary cutter and ruler (or just scissors if not available)
- sewing machine & thread

directions:

1. cut two apron panels, using the pattern supplied, one from each 1 yard piece of fabric. if your fabric is directional, be sure to cut out the apron with your pattern facing the correct direction.

2. cut four apron strings from the length of each 1 yard piece of fabric 1.5″ wide (8 total).

3. place two apron ties of contrasting colors right sides together and stitch around two long sides and one short end. (leave one end open for turning.) turn right sides out and press well. set aside.

4. place the apron pieces right sides together and pin together. tuck the apron ties inside the apron, with the open, unsewn ends extending in the seam allowance. placement is on both sides, ½” below the cut edge of the apron’s top edges and at the tops of the shoulders (see pattern for placement).

5. stitch around the entire apron, leaving a 4” opening for turning on one of the sides, below the tie. seam allowances are ¼”. turn the apron right side out and press well. tip: using a  point turner in the corners will ensure sharp points.

6. machine or hand stitch the opening on the side closed.

7. cook up a storm and enjoy!

reminisce by bonnie christine for art gallery fabrics

hello, lovelies! though i’ve shared my latest fabric collection reminisce with you before, today i want to highlight one of my favorite projects from the collection: the sentimentalities quilt. my mom, maxine ramey and i worked together to design it and she pieced and quilted it for me.

sen·ti·men·tal·i·ties

1. The quality or condition of being excessively or affectedly sentimental.
2. A sentimental idea or an expression of it.

reminisce by bonnie christine for art gallery fabrics

it’s also a free downloadable pattern! you can download the pdf pattern right here from art gallery fabrics. the dresdon plate in the middle is easier than it looks (i promise!) and you’ll have the quilt top together in no time.

sentimentalities quilt fabric requirements

above are the fabric requirements for the quilt and coordinating sku numbers. if you’re interested in grabbing some of the fabric, you can either check your local fabric store for availability or purchase it online from hawthorne threads. the sentimentalities quilt finishes out to be 66″ x 66″. it’s the perfect size to throw on a bed or curl up under on the couch!
