Where the heck has the first quarter of the year gone?? Once again, I cannot believe this year is just flying by so quickly. Also how have I not posted since January?!

My husband gifted me a nice, shiny sewing machine for Christmas last year and it has been getting a TON of use. I just finished up my third baby quilt of the year this past weekend, and I'm starting to sketch out some ideas for a few new quilts. My sister also gifted me a journal for Christmas that has been absolutely perfect for this.

My husband has also been hinting that I should make us a quilt- something that has been on my "to-do" list for quite a while. Once upon a time, long ago, I made cocktail napkins for our wedding and I have still have fabric + some left over napkins that are patiently waiting to be sewn into something. I don't think I have enough fabric for my original idea, so I've been brainstorming a few new layouts. Nothing set in stone yet, which means it may be awhile before I actually start piecing together a quilt top, but I'm excited to start the process. 

I also picked up a few sewing patterns that I really want to try out, including this dress and this tote. I was lucky enough to see this tote, and it's seamstress, in person at QuiltCon :)

And since I haven't had any time to edit the photos of my recent quilts (yet), I'll leave you with this little sneak-peak from one. 

Happy Tuesday everyone!

RIP Google Reader

Along with pretty much everyone else in the blogging world, I too am pretty bummed that Google Reader is calling it quits. I'm still deciding on some alternative platforms to view my favorite, blogs (mainly feedly  & bloglovin')

In order to prep for the inevitable, you can find me here:

I'll be back with soon with some new posts!!
