So, I was trying to find something to blog about...

...and I really couldn't think of much. I had a wonderful few hours visiting a fabric shop. I was on my quest to find the fabrics that I need for a baby quilt. I found something that I need to make work for me. Probably more on that later.
Picture-wise, I found another recent project. I've made a version of this little hat for my niece and both of my nephews and so, of course, I was immediately informed that I HAD to make one for my Little Miss as well. So I did.




The pictures are a bit fuzzy because she would NOT sit still. I guess she just wasn't in the mood to model that day...












The pattern is from an old crochet magazine. I think its just about the cutest little hat... I just hope I can get her to wear it once or twice- for more than 10 seconds!


This one is very blurry because she was trying to run away as fast as possible! Definitely not in the mood to model for me...





So, that's my little cutie in her new hat.
Hopefully, I'll have a bit more to say tomorrow. Have a good night everybody!

My favorite shirt...


Just a quick post tonight. Mostly because I have been fighting with this stupid thing for ages now -and it still won't do exactly what I want it to! I'm fed up! So, I'll maybe post what was going to be the other half of this post tomorrow. I just wanted to show a quick snap of my favorite t-shirt. As you can tell from the title of my blog, I have learned to accept and embrace the title that has been bestowed upon me by my friends and family. And when I saw this shirt in the Keepsake Quilting catalog a few months ago, I knew I had to have it. I think the folks over at TwoChicksDesigns.com must have made it just for me. So I bought one. And I'm sort of thinking that I might need a couple more... just so I'll always have a clean one ready and waiting for any occasion...I wonder if it comes in any color other than pink? I think I may just run and check. See you next time!

Hello out there...

Ok, so I finally did it. I've been thinking about it for a while and finally just said "Screw it, why not?" So here is my very first blog entry.

Exciting, isn't it? ; )

I thought I would just take a moment to introduce myself. As you can see from the "About me" section, I am now a stay-at-home mom with a growing-up-faster-than-I-want now-toddler. She's soon to be one year old, and running me completely ragged. In the little spare time I have, I surf the web (more and more often now) and try to finish, start, or at least get a little tiny bit of work done on one of my many UFO's. I dabble in several hobbies, and the chaos in my "quilting room" will prove it. Lately, I spend most of the time with quilting, knitting, crochet, or (a very tiny bit of) embroidery. Sometimes, something else sort of crafty will sneak in on me.

This blog will probably (mostly, but I can't promise exclusively) deal with my crafting projects. I will probably moan about my attempts to finish UFO's, gloat over any project that gets finished, and daydream about projects to come. You're welcome to come along on my ramblings. Just be prepared to find yourself in the middle of baby issues, rants over husband, and anything else that strikes my fancy along the way.... It'll be fun. I hope.

I'll quit for now, its awfully close to bedtime. A sleeping toddler is a joy! See you all soon!
