An update.....Finally......

I know it's shocking....I am finally updating my blog! I just never take the time to sit down and do it. The past few months have been busy with lots of stuff happening. So, here are a few things that I've been meaning to post...



This is a quilt that I've been working on. I just love these fabrics. I still have 2 borders to add and I'm thinking I'll use the striped material to back it ....






My friends and I made this quilt for another friends wedding. It was a whirlwind. We made it start to finish in 4 days....talk about hectic. It's one of those projects that was good in theory, but then reality sets in and you realize that you should have left yourself more time or picked out a gift from a store.. However, I have to admit that the finished product was beautiful.

In the same week that we tackled the quilt, we ended up in another pickle...literally! We got 5 cases of free cucumbers and decided to make pickles to put in our storage. Mom and I had fun with the process and we made some delicious dills and sweets.


My friend Wendy and I made curtains for her roommate. We made them for her doorway and her window. I think they turned out awesome. I want to make some curtains for me now. We'll see if that actually ever happens ;)


She doesn't have a door, so we wanted to make them look nice from the hallway too. So, we put a sheer overlay on the back. I really like how it looks.

Here are the set for the window.

This next picture is for Sarah - how's this for an inspiration purse!?

I love it!

This summer, I was in Idaho and went to Tautphus Park Zoo with my mom and Jer and Heidi's family. We had a great time. This video is of the Gibbon monkeys that we saw. They make the loudest noise ever and were hilarious to watch because they entertained themselves by swinging around the cage and then slamming into the glass to scare the people watching. This one's for Jer & Heidi.

The following pictures are a series of cakes I've made over the past few months for people's birthdays. There are a few more, but I don't have pictures. Breanne wanted the Molten Lava cake from Chili's, so we made a copy cat recipe. They were delicious.








That's all for now! I will try to post more often!!!!
