I spy

I worked this morning, the youngest 3 kids spent the night at Grandma's. My husband is bringing them home after he gets done at a fishing tournament. So instead of spending all this time on FB and Pinterest, I decided to start tying a quilt. This is my first time tying a quilt, so after watching a few YouTube videos. I jumped in.

My little pony

My 9 year olds new obsession is my little pony. While shopping at Walmart, I seen some my little pony fabric. I bought a yard and turned it into a pillowcase for her. She was surprised when she got home from school.

Almost done..

I've been working on a baby quilt for a new little niece that is due to arrive in December.

All I have left is the binding, which would be done if it wasn't so nice outside today. I've been outside most of the day playing with my 3 year old.

2 Hats

I got a leftover ball of Caron cake yarn from my mom and made 2 hats.

The bigger hat was given to my niece who turned 5 months a few days ago. The smaller hat will go to a niece due in December.

I have enough yarn left to make another hat, but I switched to a blue Caron cake to make one for my son.

It's been a while....

It's been awhile since my last post. I started a job! I haven't worked outside of the house in 9 years! I got a job at a local nursing home as a dietary assistant. After I get through training, I'll work an average of 30 hours every 2 weeks.

I did receive some scrap fabric from SBB Heart Builders, and I'm in the process of making a baby quilt top to be donated to project Linus.

I hope to have a quilt top to share with you soon.
