I'm here today to share a few of my most recent creations and to update Diane's blog while she's a little out of commission. So here goes:
5 months ago my life was blessed with a darling daughter, things have not been the same since. I mean that in the best way possible, except perhaps for all the spit up! It's true, we can't go anywhere without multiple burp rags, I'm always changing my shirt and sometimes my whole outfit! Her dad says we should have purchased spit up insurance. I've decided that the very best burp rags are cloth diapers, which are rather dull. This is an example of my attempts to liven them up. Hexagons!
2 weeks after my daughter was born we moved into our brand new house! Living in a house is fabulous. I just can't get over all the space we have. These curtains hang in my family room over the sliding door to the back yard. I found the white curtains at Ikea but wanted more color. I bought a flat aqua colored sheet at Target, cut it in half, hemmed it a bit, sewed the two layers together and presto- curtains!
We had an open house to show off our new home. The refreshments included a cake made from Oreos (my fav). I love cake plates. This is my most recent purchase. I didn't have a ribbon that was quite the right color so, what you see threaded through there is actually a selvage!
Finally, my favorite time of the year is quickly approaching! This is my festive addition to our decorations~ this quilt is made from 2 charm packs of Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas fabric line fashioned into snowball blocks.
Thanks for allowing me to show off a bit. Here's hoping that you have a yummy, family filled, relaxing week. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
