Yes, it has been a long time since I have posted! I have good excuses! We were in Disney - and while we were there got to extend our trip by 5 more days! Then when we got home we adopted a puppy! Beautiful Jasmine (yup, we're a Disney family all the way). She is a black standard poodle (no shedding - yay!) The first few weeks were very time consuming - I had to watch Jasmine every second - so there was very little sewing going on!
But, some exciting things happened at the end of October. Two of my friends were blessed to be chosen as adoptive Mamas (within 2 days of each other - I was so stressed!) Baby Theo was born and placed with a very good friend of mine from college and 2 days later Baby Sofia was born and placed with my friend in Florida! So I had to get moving on some quilts!
I chose a "wonky log cabin" block for baby Theo's quilt. His mom loves bright colors, so I chose orange and teal. I bought the fabric a while ago, I just couldn't decide on the design. This quilt was a major labor of love. I don't know if I'll be doing this design again any time soon! Ironing after every seam was very tedious. But, I finally finished it and I really love how it turned out! Another one that my husband says he wishes could be kept at our house :)
I already decided on a design for Sofia's quilt, and I know the colors I want - I am going out on Black Friday to get some deals on fabric! Also on the docket is a lap quilt for Gracie's preschool teacher for Christmas and another quilt I need to finish for Christmas time too! I also have a few homemade gifts I want to make too... I better get moving :)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
