Anyone wanna come play?


Glo bug has started walking, more like running, after the tennis balls Ompa gave us on our Seattle trip. This is a common picture in our house.

He was a little thirsty!


We played outside in the driveway on Thursday. I washed the truck, the boys helped. This was part of helping!

My truck looks worse than when I started. I didn't dry it as I went and now there's hard water spots. I love New Mexico. ;)

Little quilting


This is a sneak peek of my quilt. I wrote my name and stippled crazy small in between to make the letters really stand out.

Lizzy


I haven't figured out the pictures. But anyway this one showed up so I'll use it!

This is our newest addition. I have been wanting a kitty. Chris had me searching craigslist last Friday for his new hobby, wood design or something. Anyway free was a frequent section I visited on local lists. Kittens are on said pages...so I called a few.
Chris and I had a babysitter set up for Friday night...but no plans. I thought we would do dinner and a movie. Instead we went to cruces, had dinner, got a new iPad (ours took a bath, but was still under our contract) and got a kitten!!!!

Lizzy is her name. She's a cuddler and helper of fabric! My dad suggested to call her queenie because she wasn't home ten minutes and she already thumped Diesel, our 90lbs black lab, on the nose. She is gonna rule this house. Which is exactly what we wanted. I didn't like Queenie, or Rocky...another suggestion. So I thought of the only queen I know, queen Elizabeth. Hence lizzy.

So here's to having another girl in this house!!

The beginning of my quilt

I started sewing again after a huge break. I decided that I wanted to start with something for myself.

So after a day or few of finding a simple but fun pattern, I picked this one.




I don't know why that is so big but it won't be small so it's staying.

I used my very favorite line, Blush by basicgrey. It was hard to cut into.

Where the white is, I used ash and put my name and designed a bird that echoes the one in the fabrics.

I'm trying my hardest to get pictures here. I'll share when I do.

Phone...

I'm having phone issues. It has all my pictures but it won't email the pictures to my own email account or even blogger. I want to post pictures with our doings but if I can't figure this out... It's going to be a picture less blog soon!

Any ideas???
