Getting ready to finally release a few quilt patterns I've been working on since late 2012! The quilt above was quilted by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting! Hopefully they'll be ready at the end of the month!

Amanda, Jacey, and I (+ a few others too!) are going to sew through Tula Pink's City Sampler book this year! This is my first block.

We had a very geeky Valentines day after I came upon this ridiculous collection of vintage video game consoles (and games!) at a thrift store. Michael went with Playstation 1 and I went with Gamecube!

If you're local, it's the St. Vincent de Paul on Odana Rd.
