A Baby Quilt

Remember this? Well, after Max's backpack arrived, his mom asked if I'd be willing to make him a quilt. She'd bought a bumper for him, but the pediatrian told her that was a, what better to do with a bumper than to make it into a quilt. The bumper fabric is the stripe I used for the binding...I totally get why she loved it. It's super cute!

Here it is finished, but before washing it. It was my first time doing a meander stitch for the quilting. It was so much nicer than doing swirls! I did have to unpick about 1/4 after I realized that my tension was WAY off. But worth it in the end for a nice finished project.

And here it is nice and crinckled. Fresh out of the dryer. With minky on the back (which is totally easy to work with for a quilt backing & I take back every bad thing I've ever said about it!).

The Monsters

I love that my children were the recipents of these adorable cupcakes made by T & Kai's "big sisters". The monsters with the eyelashes were picked out specifically for T (cause they're girly, of course!)...and the cyclopse for Kai...and they both devoured them. Aren't they delicious? (In SO many ways!)

I can only hope to someday take my baking to this level!!!

Spy Party

In case you are wondering, I actually have been working on stuff. In fact, I've been working on A LOT. They are all just huge projects in some level of completion...just not complete (wedding invitations, quilts, etc). But Kai's birthday party invites? They are complete...and awesome. Just for a couple of his friends ("his spies"). Now onto the party planning...

PS...the top secret memo IS encrypted.  It's not just backwards accidentally.
