I wanted to wait until I had at least some quilting pics to show!
we've been kind of busy around here.
My neighbor offered to paint the baby's room, so she's been doing that the last two mornings, it looks awesome!!
and AFTER! a nice lavender :-)
See! I did do SOME quilting- more pics about that later in the post :-)
Here's another picture of Peanut, he's not getting any of....
these! my husband and kids made peanut butter cookies the other night.
my husband makes much better cookies than I do :-)
and the sunset the other day was so pretty I had to snap a picture of it with my new camera.
Now, have you ever seen one of these??
my neighbor brought it over for the kids to see, it's some sort of horned carterpillar that eats tomato plants, I've seen it before, but NOT with the eggs on top of it, those are a kind of wasp eggs, when they hatch they burrow into the caterpillar and eat him from the inside! yuck! well good for the tomato plant, not good for him....
here's a youtube she sent me about it
And I also got some fabric in the mail- Christmas in July!!
well they are not really christmas-y fabrics, more like winter... but fabric.com had them on sale, so I just couldn't HELP myself...
here's what I want to make with it....
BUT make it into a tree skirt!
I have been working on more hexies :-)
And sewed on some labels in missing quilts, this is the back of the wonky house block swap!
Here's the lil' twister quilt all done!! TADA!
I quilted in a swirly loopy pattern
