My goodness, when I look at the last date I blogged, I can't believe it was almost an entire month ago. I have been busy, I promise! I have 2 big accomplishments to mention here for the month.

The first one doesn't have anything to do with sewing, but everything to do with my precious children! Earlier this month, I created 5 photo books in the kodak gallery to document each of my children's lives up to this point. There is a book for each kid, for each year of their life, minus the current year which I will be completing before Christmas, but that's only 2 books left, I already did 5!! I don't think that you can fully understand the magnitude of this project until I tell you that I had to go through thousands of pictures and relive all of those years, then organize them into the actual books. Anyway, it was a huge project, I'm so excited to be caught up and I can't wait to complete one book per year going forward! The books should arrive in the mail on Friday and I'm more than excited!

The second accomplisment is a twin size quilt for my daughter to use on the new "big girl" bed we will be putting her into next month. I think I mentioned that I would be doing this project, and now it's done. The quilt went together in record time, and was so easy. I used Amy Butler's "Lotus Brick Path" quilt pattern with Heather Bailey's new "Nicey Jane" fabric line. And for the backing I used a vintage Holly Hobbie twin flat sheet. I love, love, love this quilt and I know she will too! Oh, how could I forget to point out the pink pom poms that are sewn into the corners, so sweet!

Next project on the list...A wedding guest book quilt for my dear friend who is getting married in Septmeber.
