Birthday present




For my birthday I traded in my old sewing machine and got a NEW one. Well, it's used but it's new to me AND it works 10 times better than my old one. I love it and I have been using it a lot. If I had a little girl I would probably be sewing fluffy dresses and skirts, but I have been trying my hand at quilting. The table cloth was my first attempt and it is very flawed. But the messed up parts are against the wall so you can't seem them.
But, I LOVE how my pinwheel pillow turned out! My next project is going to be a quilt for our bed, YIKES! It's going to match this pillow and another pillow I am almost done with. I hope the quilt turns out as nice as my pillow.
The quilt in the middle picture is one my mom made for Jared for his birthday. She made it out of some of Jared's favorite T-shirts that I stole from him. I love how the quilt turned out and this is a way for Jared to keep using his precious T-shirts!

Hey! I am glad you found me in the blog world! I hope you and your adorable family are doing great! Quinn is so big now- and so so cute. Anyways, I love the quilt ... I have been thinking about making one out of my tons of Cal Poly t shirts!
