To the New Year!!! I've had a lot go on in such a short time this year! Most importantly, I'd like to introduce everyone to...
Miss Abby who is my newest niece! She was born Jan. 4, 2013 weighing 8lbs 5.7 oz and was 21 1/4 in. long! She's perfect!!! Had a rough first week but is home now and doing great! She's such a good baby so far too! I just want to eat her! LOL! That's been the most exciting news!
On another note, I lost my job! :( But the only reason that happened is because I found a new one, the new job called the old job, and the old job....well.... let's just say got a little mad. But it's for the best, really! I'll be working dayshift (THANK GOD!) instead of nights, pay is better, and I'll get to spend more time with my babies! Hopefully, this will work out the way I have planned! *fingers crossed*
I've been sewing quite a bit this year too! If anyone follows me on IG (craftnursequilt) then you guys already know! Let me show ya a little bit of what I've got going on!
I started on the Lucky Stars BOM last night! This is the practice block, I decided to do this quilt out of all solids! Hopefully I'll get to use up a lot of those charms from my Kona Rainbow swap! I'm going with a grayish background too....I don't think I'm going to stick to a specific gray, just different grays that I have on hand. I think it'll look pretty good!
I finished my Bee block, which I love!!!! I think Samantha did a FANTASTIC job designing this quilt block, she calls it "Momma Goose" and I can NOT wait to see the finished product! You can find the tutorial here and she's also got a drawing of what she wants the finished quilt to look like!
I am enrolled in Vanessa Christenson's Craftsy class called Sewing Texture and I absolutely LOVE her ideas!!!!
Also, this year...my baby girl turned 5!!!!!!! I can't believe how big she is getting! Where has all the time went??????
So this year so far, has been pretty good!!! I'm hoping everything works out the way I want it to! I know it's gonna be a lot to adjust to, but I've got a good support system backing me 100% so I think it'll all work out!
Now, I'm off to sew, not sure what, but it will involve me & my machine!!!!!
~Hope y'all are having a great day!!~
