We're alive- I promise!

It's summer vacation though, so I tend to forget about updating the blog. We haven't been up to a whole lot- just getting more pregnant, and kiddo and I took a quick unplanned trip up to Missouri to visit some family for a week.

A few pics of randomness- I haven't been sewing a whole lot lately (since the last post!) but I do have a new stash of embroidered baby quilt tops to quilt up from my grandmother and 2 'new' but vintage quilts for the kids (I think full bed sized- will try and get pics of my old quilts sometime!)

16 weeks pregnant!

Matt getting a guitar lesson from Great Aunt Darlene... so far, all the effort he's put into learning how to play the guitar he bought himself haha!

Matt at CubScout Crossover- he's a Wolf now! (meaning I'm a Wolf den leader now- I'm sure this will work out wonderfully when I'm fat and crabby!)

Another Top!

So, it's absolutely not the one I was thinking of last week... I still haven't figured out quite what to do on that one (black and white prints with bright tone-on-tones).

BUT- I did find a jelly roll in my sewing room closet! It's Moda's Chutes and Ladders line (at least a year old because I'm pretty sure we lived at the other house when I bought it) and it needed something done with it. So I seperated out the pinks/purples from the rest and added a few stash fabrics.

This is the end result! The colors in this picture are washed out some, too much sunlight and I was too lazy to move it to a different spot on the floor, but you get the idea. The applique shapes are sort of just larger versions of the print on the smaller 4 patches. All the applique was done raw edged so it will fuzz up nicely after a few washes!

(and I still need to do something with those other colors... hmmm)
