What I've been working on...

Bet you didn't know I'm a knitter! Well, I am! I used to do more knitting, but with two babies, I have to prioritize my hobbies! So, of course, quilting took the lead. That's my biggest knitting UFO. Its going to be a shawl. The yarn is just to die for! Super soft, and the colors are gorgeous!
I've also been busy appliqueing! I got block one of Anne Sutton's Autumn House just about done. I still have a little bit of embroidery to do. Then I will start on her free block of the month, "A Tiskit, a Tasket". I've been stockpiling my fabrics for that. I will be using Moda's Simplicity and Lakehouse. I found a quilt shop that still has the entire Simplicity line, so I've been buying it one half yard at a time! :)
Happy stitching, everyone!

Happy Birthday to ME!

Today is my birthday. Yay. My husband packed me off to the spa. It was exhausting. Mostly because it is located at the mall, so I managed to do some browsing while I was there. Now I need another massage to recover! The only photo I have today is of the munchkins. Liberty took a break from torturing her little brother and posed for some cute pictures (just kidding...she's usually pretty sweet to him). She even got in a couple of kisses.
I've started block one of Bunny Hill's "Autumn House". I love it! I have been eagerly checking my mailbox since December 26th for its arrival. It finally got here around the 24th of January. I'll post some pics when I get it done. I finally got all the samples done for the shop, so now its all about meeeee! Hooray! I hardly know where to begin! :)
