Updates soon...

I have been crafting/sewing a lot, I just can't post any photos yet because the things I've made are presents for my adorable nephews! They get them this weekend at Xavier's 2nd birthday party/Jordan's Baptism!! I'll update after this weekend because I don't want their mommy to see them yet! ; ) sorry Rachel!

Love ya'll!

Burp Cloths

This is my first attempt at burp cloths, but I really like how they turned out! Let me know what you think!

Sweet Izzy

Lately, every time I am on the computer sweet little Izzy lays either on top of me or right on the desk so I can see half of the screen. Today I was able to just reach my camera so I could document how cute she is! This little girl apparently needs attention!

On mama's lap today (after I pushed her off the desk)!

change up

I wasn't really liking how this quilt was turning out, then my mom gave me an idea to add solid blocks in between the other ones (that's why she's the expert). I REALLY like how it's turning out now and it's a bigger size for extra snuggle room! I'm about halfway through sewing these blocks together, and after that I will add a border.

What do ya'll think?

New blocks

I started on some new blocks today and I'm really loving how they are turning out. I made 36 blocks today and hope to make more tomorrow. I've had this flower fabric since 2004 and have been waiting for the right project to come along. Let me know what ya'll think!

The Blocks

Starting to come together

I really like how this looks...but it's not big enough yet.

Labor Day Fun

For Labor Day we all went to the St. Louis Zoo; Matt, Rachel, Xavier, Jordan, Kate, Rylee, Erica, Jon and I. They have a sting-ray exhibit going on and it was really neat. Here are some photos of us at the sting-ray exhibit.

I added a border to my quilt today! Now all I have to do is get some backing fabric and quilt it together! I am loving this fabric!


Thanks to the amazing Rachel Hill Photography (by the way she just moved to St. Louis so BOOK with her ASAP; she's AMAZING!!), I just received this adorable photo with my two nephews Xavier and Jordan! I am in LOVE with this picture and just wanted to share it with everyone! If your interested in booking with her I put a link to her website, just click on her name! Anywho...enjoy this photo of my adorable nephews! Thanks Rach!

New Quilt!!

I started this quilt top yesterday and finished it today (besides the border that still needs to be done). Let me know what you think!

I started cutting 12 X 2 inch strips (approximately)

Then I sewed those strips together in groups of 2.
Then I sewed those strips together in groups of 6 to make squares.
Then I cut those squares down to 10 X 10, then cut them diagonally.

tag blankets

I made these the other night and forgot to post them! I made some fleece tag blankets and I really like them!

My model: Ozzie!
