The quilting is not so great....as I said my first attempt at quilting. Have to say, I'm not a fan of handstitching the binding down. ugh. I do want to make a top from the top left fabric for myself and one for my daughter. But really, she doesn't need anything else to wear. At least until cold weather sets in. I also think I will have to make myself a fall purse. I will post more pics of what I make with the fabrics and some of what I have made in the past in the future, and will try to do one for tomorrow with the quilt recipient's sister's gift... Til then!

I'm enjoying the spring that is coming our way. My seeds are started, my garden boxes ready, and I have new porch furniture. Pictures to come one day...we won't discuss my 2 orders from snappy for all of last year's pics. One day.....and once upon a time I was caught up on scrapbooks. True...just many, many years ago now.
I am also loving the new dresser from Restoration Hardware I got this weekend. So much storage! I'm not sure it was worth the 13 year wait for a real, grown-up dresser. Well, ok, it was. I can honestly say that it has only been in the last year that I've felt like we didn't have enough clothes storage in our antique dresser, wardrobe and closet. Mostly as my hubby is as obsessed with clothes as most women are and we haven't really ever had the kind of money to just blow on clothes. Oh, and yes, pregnancy can just ruin the whole wardrobe. I think I finally am down to just 2 sweaters from pre-children and just one nightgown.
well, it is time for baths for kids and rooms need to be clean...new rules with things...they are put away, or thrown away. Counts for all of us. Warnings have all expired and tonight is all is lost night. Don't think my oldest wants to really say his mom threw away his homework...or backpack....we shall see.

A new year and new plans....like actually following through and finishing some projects. So that's what I'm off to do now.
