pieced... and waiting.

Well... I got all of the blocks finished... And the cat, Panzie, proceeded to do, exactly what cats do. She was so proud and purring. You could hear her from the hallway. Silly kitty.
Then came sewing the rows together.

My favorite block of this quilt:

I LOVE the swirls and hearts together.

And now, its waiting... for borders and backing.

She isn't going to know what do to with herself when she opens it on Christmas!

On getting up early...

This "gotta get up early" crap, is just that. Crapola. Especially on the mornings that my body will let me sleep... SO sad. I know, I know. "The early bird gets the worm" and all that nonsense. But COME ON! Just 15 more minutes would have been grand. *sigh*  Okay. I'm done whining now.

Those are cupcakes?

You bet they are!!! VERY tastey cupcakes, at that! SO simple. So tastey.

Adrianne likes them too! 


1 small can pumpkin

1 box devil's food cake mix

Mix together JUST the cake mix and pumpkin
Scoop into cupcake liners
Bake for 15-18 minutes at 350* F

They come out a wee bit sticky and are less so if you
allow them to cool before partaking.

Up past my bedtime!

Yep, thats right. I am up wayyyyy past my bedtime... However, it is with a good intent, and a creative output. I have been designing a pattern using nothin but three fat quarters (maybe four) and a zipper with a little piece of cardboard for a handbag... or project bag... or reading bag... or whatever bag! Stay tuned for the frustration and love and details that will follow! =) xoxo  (Did I mention for my LDS family - it will be large enough for scriptures and a book and notepad?) xoxoxo

Oh, how the time flies!

Well. Obviously I am not all that great about updating. That is probably an understatement. I am OBVIOUSLY TERRIBLE about updating. I promise to make a better effort ;-)  That being said, how bout an update??

I have been sewing like crazy!! And loving every minute of it! Pillowcases, gift bags, note cards, quilts, purses... And soon to try my hand at clothing...  (more photos will have to come later - the uploader is telling me that it is being a wee bit off...)

                                                          These were Taryn's birthday gift!

Adrianne is growing like a weed! Nate took her to the doc on Tuesday and she is in the 93rd percentile for height! HOLY COW! Not to mention, she has one heck of a vocabulary.

The other night (not sure which) I hear her and daddy talking in her room -

Daddy: You dont need to sit down in here, Mommy made cake!
Adrianne: I love it! I love cake!
Daddy: You love it?
Adrianne: I love it! (a few seconds later) Mommy! I love cake!

Nate is loving being a stay-at-home dad!

Hopefully it wont be so long in between posts for the next go...
