This weekend my sister blessed her baby boy, Peyton, and my first official day started at Just Sew on Friday....so I had the idea of making one of these darling car seat covers that I have seen everywhere lately. I figured out the pattern (was so proud of myself) and bought the fabric and took it out to Stacey's house and made it Saturday so he could have it Sunday for his blessing. I found out after I was done that it matched his diaper bag perfectly! I showed Jenny the pictures when I got home of the one I made and she decided she had to make one for her new niece...so we went to Just Sew together and picked out the fabric....then she came over today and I let her use my machine so she could do a cute edge on it and I helped her with the "pattern". Her pictures are at the bottom! Hers has a nice girly touch....would love to make a girly one for myself one day!
A couple Saturdays ago my good friend died......My Blowdryer....it has been the best one I have ever had...it serioiusly lasted about 15 years...the longest lasting blowdryer I have ever known. It was there for me for dates, my wedding, and many other important days, through curly and straight, short and long....it was seriously a sad day when it didn't run anymore...I almost cried! So heres to you Blowdryer....I have found a replacement...but it will never measure up.

I finished!!!! I have been in a Block of the Month group at American Quilting called "Saturday Sampler" for the past year. We would do one block a month and if you finished the block and brought it in the next meeting...you got the next block free...I finished every month and got all mine for free!!! The second Saturday in June we were shown how it would look and bought our finishing kits and I finished mine just 2 weeks ago! We just started another one in July and I am so excited...it's a mystery again...will find out what it looks like at the end again....one more year...one more quilt! I love doing them this way! I just need to get this one quilting and then I can bind it....then it will be all the way done!

I am so proud of myself...I have always helped my mom can growing up, but never did it for myself! Well, my aunt called me and gave me a 5 gallon bucket full of apricots...so I made jam! It wasn't even freezer jam either....it was the shelf stuff! My mom came and helped me ALL day Wednesday and then my sweet visiting teachers came over and Cammi Garner (one of them) gave me a bunch of apples! So, Thursday we decided to can apple pie filling! I am so proud of myself...so I took pictures of how pretty 38 pints of jam and 7 quarts of apples look!

So I'm finally blogging about this because I wanted permission to steal these layouts off of my friend Jenn's Blog! What a blast we had. First we went to Olive Garden for dinner (so yummy)! Then we went to Jenny's parents house and played games all night and some tuckered out early and had to leave....then Jenn and I finally fell asleep around 6 am! Thanks so much to Jenny's parents for letting us stay at their house while they were gone! My favorite pic on this whole layout is my fake-out nose pick!!! Looks pretty real doesn't it! We had such a blast that night! Can't wait to hang out again....I truly love these ladies...they have become great friends of mine!

We had a great Easter weekend and I am finally blogging about it! We colored eggs, the boys got spoiled...we were all lazy...it was great! Bear with me...there are a lot of pictures! The boys hunting for eggs!Their balls from Grandma!Their Easter baskets! New sunday outfits, with matching socks!
The boys got kites for Easter and it was the perfect day to fly kites! Kason would hold on for awhile and then just let go....so we had to chase the kite before it flew away!
