Sunday, February 28

Brenna decided she wanted to get in on the action while I photographed my new quilt squares - isn't she just two cute - what a ham! (She also decided to take pictures of me after these were done - she took pictures of me with each of my quilt squares :-)

My new quilt squares for my quilt along :-) Can't wait to see what my sister's new blocks look like. I can't believe my mom, sister, and I are all doing a quilt along together - how cool are they to join me! I love my red block :-)
I just had to use my owl fabric (sorry, I've been dying to make something out of it and decided this block would work well for it :-)
Hello All!!
Hope all is well out there! I can't believe we are to the last day of February already (boy has the first two of the year flown by!). (just in case you are wondering, I didn't get my last two February projects done, bummer - hopefully, we will have better days getting to school in March and my next project list will all get done :-) I will admit that I was sidetracted with the new quilt along that I decided to do, oh well!
So after doing laundry this morning and a quick lunch, we went on a stroll to try to find Dustin's wedding ring. Dustin lost his wedding ring yesterday on his run - talk about trying to find a needle in a haystack! Dustin went on a long run yesterday, so after a 2 hour walk (about), we came home empty-handed (but hey, Brenna ran/walked a lot of the stroll so I am guessing we will have a tired child here soon and maybe even an early bedtime today). (I think Justice was very happy that we took that long walk :-) (I had looked some yesterday evening for the ring on Justice's walk too - no luck then and no luck today). I think we are just going to have to accept that it is gone... I told Dustin with my ring coming apart and him losing his ring, maybe we should just pretend to be engaged until we are back in the US (hmm - maybe I am the only one thinking that is funny - but I am trying to think positive here).
I also did my two new quilt squares this morning for my pinwheel quilt along - I think they turned out pretty well (I can't wait until I have all the blocks done to see what it all looks like put together :-)
Well, I think that covers our highlights! Take Care!

Get in on the fun! She's too cute! I love your quilt blocks, they look so perfect. I'm hoping my next two will look equally nice. I'll probably end up slightly behind until I can get more work done on the weekends, but this 2nd block should go by pretty easy. I love that your quilt will be a true scrap quilt. What memories you have of living in Germany and how cool that you're using the fabric of so many things that you've made. Love it! Well, I would say since Dustin lost his ring and your two coming apart, perhaps a beachside renewal of nuptials is in order! I know that I would be there!
