Made a couple more blocks for the Scrappy Trip Along!

And here is all of them together so far!  Only 6 done but the DS blocks will be interspersed throughout the entire thing.

Designer Mystery BOM month 8

Here is month 8!!

Yes I know I goofed up making this block, the blue print is all supposed to be going the same way but you know what?  I actually like this!  I literally did this block the night after I did a 22 hr shift at work so it represents a crazy time in my life while making this quilt.  I'm keeping it!

Also cut into the finishing kit so I can start getting this bad boy put together!!  Only 4 more blocks left!

Modern Siggy Swap Blocks

When going through some of my sewing and quilting items I came across these blocks.  I have blocks from Rounds 1 & 2.  I have no desire to get these to the finished format.  If you want them all I ask is that you pay for shipping.  I will ship them via priority flat rate envelope.  Both sets will fit into one envelope so if you want them both it's the same price.

First top finish of 2013

Well, at least I finished a top earlier this year than last!  My only top finish is 2012 came in July.  Now, to be completely honest, this top finish was made possible by the Mod Bento Block swap from 2 1/2 years ago.  I *FINALLY* made something with the blocks I received.  Each block was about 8 3/4" so it's only about 35" square, perfect baby size!  

Nothing spectacular but it's a quick finish.  It will probably be a gift for one of the many babies that are being born in my circle.

Yep, I've been bitten.  I need another project like I need a hole in my head but these are so quick and simple.  I've done two so far and I'm loving how quick and simple they are.  I know it's the "scrappy" trip along but I'm loving the block I did in DS Quilts fabrics.  I have a bunch of fabric from the Picnics & Fairgrounds collection and a few other prints of her subsequent JoAnn line.

Happy 2013!!!

Ok, where did 2012 go?!  Seems like just yesterday it was January 1, 2012.  

I wasn't originally going to a 2012 year in review but a lot has happened so I figured why not! 

I tried to get myself into a UFO program and I failed.  Miserably!  I didn't complete one top on my list of UFOs, I did piece all my dresdens now they just have to be appliqued onto backing fabric.

I began the Dear Jane BOM from Twiddletails.  I ended up having to cancel the fabric portion but still get the instructions.  I'm still maintaining the binder of instructions and have been collecting fabrics more to my suiting than what the kit was providing.  After seeing the same fabrics in different colors it really wasn't what I had in mind.  

I bought myself a new (to me) car!!  Finally I have a reliable car that doesn't randomly die out on me.  This was a HUGE moment in my life!

Was pretty much a blur, I can't remember much of what happened!

Wrecked my car before I ever made the first payment.  Thankfully, it wasn't my fault but I'm still dealing with insurance companies to this day.

Moved my mom to Virginia and had a fun road trip and subsequent vacation in Virginia Beach.  Took my daughter on her first airplane and she had a blast, we had a great time just the two of us on that trip!  Also started the FQS Designer Mystery BOM.  I've managed to keep up with that one!

My daughter celebrated birthday number 9!  I can't believe it.  I also went to Colorado on a solo trip to get to know my boyfriend's mom and step dad better.  I had met them briefly once before but had a blast with his family and really enjoyed all the wonderful scenery.  His sister and gram were also there.

This was when my boyfriend told me he loved me.  We are still very much in love and it feels like our relationship has only gotten stronger by the day.  

Was a low key month, getting back into the swing of school starting and adjusting to that routine again.  I also found out I had been promoted at work!!  Still not sure if I love the position but with everything comes adjustment.  

My sweet daughter broke her arm!  She fell roller blading and did a number on her radius and ulna.  6 weeks in a cast and now she is still in a brace.  Hopefully that'll be gone next week!

My crazy son turned 5!!  My baby is all of a sudden such a big kid now.  He's such an awesome kid (when he wants to be) and such a challenge all at the same time.

Turned out to be a wonderful month!  We celebrated New Years Eve at Key Lime Cove, all 5 of us.  Myself and my 2 kids, my boyfriend and his kid.  It was so much fun but so tiring!  And water?  I don't want to see it for a LONG time now!

Here's to a happy, healthy, & hopefully quilty 2013!!
