What I Have Been Busy With


So my sister Emily kept bugging me to write on my blog but I was busy and here are the pictures to prove it. I made, all by myself may I add, 8 baby quilts. I even made up one of the patterns just from seeing some pictures online of quilts like it. The reason why I had to make so many was I am on a committee for Festival of Trees and I had to make 8 item to be sold at the shop there. So here are the quilts I made.




So there they are. The zig zag quilt is the one that I made up. I want to do a tutorial for on my blog but I am working on decorating my house for Christmas and getting presents wrapped and finished so when I finally get a second I will work on finishing the tutorial. It was very therapeutic to sew and I have always liked sewing. I don't think that sewing is cheaper than therapy but I do have something to show for all the money spent.

Thanksgiving was good this year. First we went to Cody's parents house at one. After dinner Cody's parents had to fly to San Diego so we went to our house for my families Thanksgiving. We ended up having it here at our house because my parents have downgraded their house because only Amelia is home now. Speaking on Millie she turned 18 this last week! I feel soooo old! So back to Thanksgiving we had it here and it was a packed house! At one time all of my family was here. 7 kids, 6 spouses, 1 Perrie, 2 parents, 4 grandkids, and a partridge in a pear tree (well in a Christmas tree which has been up since the second week of December). This year Cody wanted a 9 foot Christmas tree but I don't have enough ornaments for the whole tree so I put them on the front where you see them.

So this is why I have been busy.
