A baby is Born

My best friend had her baby girl Aliyah today 7 lbs 11 oz (i think). I'm over joyed at this event and I couldn't wait to get home to call her and see how she was doing. She's great the baby is great and beautiful. I wont post a picture, she might not like that :D What makes this the most amazing thing is that today is my birthday. I feel like an aunt to this little darling so its awesome that she was born today, on my birthday. I cried...lol. More good news I went shopping today...found some things for my living room makeover. A light candle stick and some glass thingies. Ha ha. Once I put my whole room together I will post pictures. I'm checking out Urban Outfitters right now, they're stuff is wonderful. I could spend a fortune. Anyway aside from my husband being gone still for another week, my birthday was awesome. Two of my good friend went shopping with me, we had cake and coffee (a German tradition on occasions) and then ordered Chinese. Perfect, minus the hubby. I will try to post some pics soon. I've been working on my robot rail fence. I love it. I just have to sew some blocks together.

Oh and I got baby's stuff for his room all set up...believe it or not he was very very upset with me changing all his stuff to airplane stuff. He's over it now but he was very mad for a short time. Enough rambling. Have a wonderful upcoming weekend.


Quilt Festival...Fall 2009

Park City Girl is having a Quilters Festival...again. She did one in spring also that I caught the end of and couldn't enter. So here I am. Blogging again tonight :)

I'm up late anyway might as well make it good. So the quilt I'm entering is a basic disappearing nine patch I did for my MIL for her birthday this year..she turned 50. But it was the first quilt I ever tried an all over free motion quilting on. It was about a twin size.I tried to do feathers they turned out more like paisley?! All in all it was a great experience to free motion like that on my little Brother machine. I got over my big fear of free motion and it turned out pretty good. I haven't quilted a long time. Well probably two years now. I started when my husband was deployed to Iraq, i really needed a hobby and this is what I chose. Fabric is by Moda. Outer borders by Connecting threads.

An up close and personal of the quilting

The quilting could have been so much better but for my first big piece and not knowing what I'm doing...not bad.

PS if you can help quilting on a small machine...don't do it. You'll do more wrestling than anything else...on a good note you might build some muscles.

Operation Redecorate

I've been so busy since my husband is gone for 17 whole days!! I go crazy, so I'm going crazy redecorating. Or trying while chasing around my little monster. I started with my sewing room, then moving on to my sons room which will be vintage airplanes! He ♥ 's airplanes. Then the living room will get an update moving from gold and maroon so blue and white. But I have black couches so hopefully it'll all work. I want a zebra print chair for in there also. Moving on...I bought totally cute new fabric I'm making a rail fence with...my birthday is next week so I'm going shopping on good ol german economy. They have the most wonderful decor stores the stuff is so cheap. ♥ Love it ♥ So here are some pics to go with my spew. Is that how you spell that? Lol.
