I’m Baaack!

I intended to sit down tonight and write a post about Thanksgiving 2010.  But thanks to this little beauty I received for my birthday,

and the extra-large photo files which it creates, I spent too much time tonight learning to down-size pictures to a reasonable size for web uploading.  So the Thanksgiving Re-cap will have to wait.  But I hope you’ll be seeing a lot more of me around here.  I’ve definitely been taking more pictures these days.

Happy Birthday Mom!

I thought I’d share the cutest picture of us I could find.  This one was the winner.
We made quite the blonde team back in the day.

Wishing a very happy birthday to the very best mom!

Today is my 25th birthday.

From the archives. My birth day.

And to celebrate, my most-amazing-in-the-whold-wide-world husband bought me this.


I cannot tell you how excited I am!  My very own brand new sewing machine.  Sunday, I got it set up and learned how to thread it.  I also played with it for a bit.  It has a few whimsical stitches that I can’t wait to find a use for.  Like turtles and houses.  I know.  Who would have thought I’d need a sewing machine that makes turtles?


I’m most excited for how easy it is to use.  I started a quilt top months ago that I’m back to working on.  Yesterday you saw my progress, I trimmed all the blocks nice and square.  Can’t wait to finish the top and try out maching quilting for the first time.

So, if you’re looking for me the rest of the day, I’ll be in my sewing room, smiling really big. 

P.S. Alex, I love you!
