Hello again…

Wow, it has been a while!   I have lots to talk about (lucky you) and I think I’m ready to be back!   So much has happened since I was here last…infertility, loss, pregnancy, my baby turning 1, career changes, home changes, and much more!

After spiraling into some slight depression after multiple miscarriages I quit being crafty and quit decorating.   But, here I am on the other side of things with a baby girl now.  Her name is Piper and she is the light of my life.   Since having her I have become a SAHM and I’m starting to feel my old self coming back.  Even just in the past week the urge has grown so strong to be creative that I can fight it no longer and I’m excited to get things looking cute around here!

In the past 3 years my house has become a cluttered hodge podge of decor and it isn’t pretty, let me tell you!  I’m home so much more now that I have plenty of time to stare at these walls and see the changes I want made.  Today is the the day, the first day of getting things the way I want them around here.  My style has changed alot in the past few years and so lots of things in my house are no longer welcome here!

Well I guess I will go get to work now and get you some before/after pics too!

Before I go though let me introduce you to my sunshine, my joy, and my world!

Pardon my French Roses.

My mom and I don’t get to spend much time together lately. She is either working or spending time with my Dad building their dream home. This last Saturday my Dad was working all day long so me and my mom decided we would have a day of sewing. Our quilt of choice this day was the French Roses.

So we went to Hobby Lobby to get some material then came home and got busy! I decided to do Vintage/Gingham and she decided on dark reds and warm yellows.

We started cutting out all our fabrics and having fun laying them out to see what they will look like.
Here are my roses.

Here are her roses.

It is amazing how it has such a different feel just by changing the colors of the fabrics.

Since she is such and overachiever and I’m a complete slacker, here is her quilt top almost complete. I haven’t even started sewing my flowers together. She is going to add a border around the edge then she will be ready to quilt it and sew sew the binding on.

Hopefully I will be able to show you my quilt almost finished soon. But then again I wouldn’t count on it. 😉

We took a trip with another couple to Branson, Mo. We live about 5 hours from there. We had alot of fun and we were ready to come home on the last day of our trip and then our ac in my car locked up. Yeah that is right we had to drive home 5 hours in a hot car with temps reaching 109 degrees!

Here is a picture from one of the nights we went out.
