So much has happened…

Since we last talked

I have been SUPER SUPER busy lately…all of it good!  I took my 1 week crash course to get my teaching certification, my kids were out of town during that week.  We took a 3 day trip to Louisiana, went to the zoo, attended at least 3-4 birthday parties/bbqs, took a test (which I didn’t pass…but I will next time!) and in between all of that of course I’ve attempted to keep a clean house, sew, stitch, and be June Cleaver…

First up, a pic of the lovely little present that I received in the mail from Natasha.  I won a giveaway on her blog, and she knew that I liked Blackbird Designs…so I got this great chart!  It was one that I didn’t already have, which is great!  Thanks Natasha!!!

So, I have a few things to share, but not much!

I can’t remember if I’ve posted these or not yet, but I have a snap of the in-progress of the quilts for my next door neighbor’s little girls.  The first one is for Peyton…(design taken from something else I saw on the web…but came up with the dimensions on my own)…

DSCN0479 These squares above will all look like the ones on the bottom row eventually.  I got the idea for this one from the fantabulous Moda Bake Shop.

I have been stitching a bit, and I’ve been in a bit of an ADD stitching mood lately.  I stitched on my pineapple biscornu, a bit on my LHN Traveling Stitcher, and lately I just finished part one of the Papillion Creations SAL Castles in the Air.  I say I’ve finished part 1, but really I still need to do the beads and the metallics.  I haven’t picked those out yet…I’m waiting until I get more of the pattern stitched before I decide on final colors for those.  But so far it’s looking great…definitely VERY different color and style than my “normal.”  Pics below…

Pineapple Biscornu 080409 Traveling Stitcher 080409 Castles Part 1 Alrighty now…I think that just about brings us up to date.  I have really been bad about visiting blogs lately…and even worse about commenting if I make it there!  But, please know, that you’re all doing some amazing things, and I’m really enjoying seeing your progress (as always)! 

And, because I can, I’ll leave you with a cute pic of one of my boys, Baby Jack.  Really I’m not going to be able to call him Baby Jack for much longer…he’s really quickly gone from this…
