Baby boy!

December 23, 2013

Hello readers!

I know we’ve been spotty with our posts lately, but I wanted to finally announce I had a baby boy on December 1st!  He’s the most beautiful baby and we are so happy.  We named him James, after my father.  I’m sure he’s looking down on us smiling and will continue as James grows up.  James was born a week and one day early, but we were excited to meet him.  He weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and was 21.25 inches long.

With all that being said, I’ll probably lag a little bit in posts in the near future, but hopefully Sarah will have a few things to share with you.  I still have a post or two pending so if I can finish the posts, you’ll have a few pre-baby crafts I completed.

Here’s a sneak peek at James’ little feet.  🙂

Quilt for Kemett

December 17, 2013

Hey Everyone.  Sorry I’ve been MIA for quite some time.  Lots going on, but I thought I’d take some time and update you on a few projects and meals I’ve tackled lately.

Our oldest sister – Melissa – had her first child a few months back.  The sweetest baby boy – Kemett.  In true fashion, I waited til he was already entering the world to start and finish his quilt.  BUT – it turned out adorable.

In progress

I used a charm pack and backed it with a soft flannel which wrapped around the sides to bind.  To add some textures (and hide a couple flaws), I added felt squares scattered across the front.  Enjoy the pictures!
