Things I need to write about

First, I was thinking of posting a list over on G+ but then I told myself, “Self,” (because sometimes I say that. truly. “Self, you said in your head and maybe out loud that you would post more in 2012, at the very least so you could go back and read what happened because your memory? Is like that thing with holes in it that you use to drain pasta.”

(that joke went over real well on twitter btw)

So, quilts I made:
– Addison’s halloween quilt. Biggest I’ve done so far, forgot one print glowed in the dark.
– Meaghan’s quilt. Still not finished. we have been angsting over the actual quilting.
– Sarah & Emma also got birthday quilts.

And? I totally made (HA!) Kaytlyn a quilt for her birthday too (which is today) but alas it is of course not done. The top is not even finished, but was enough to get a sense oh how it will look when done. Tip: big and bright.

I need to make more baby quilts. Like, a LOT. And have a stash handy.

Christmas was good. Adrian (my father) came up. We also drove down to see my mom. (Not with Adrian tho) Long story, which is why I need to remember to write an actual post.

I even neglected (says certain family) to upload pictures in a timely manner and even (in some cases) neglected to take actual pics. Or took them on the camera Sarah borrowed from her school. The camera is a Nikon and drool-worthy.

I should also write (here) that Ron & I are working full time for people other than ourselves. A steady predictable paycheque is really nice.

There’s also some other random stuff I want to write about and how come I never get around to it. Partly I get stuck on *where* to write it. There’s a million places now. I just need to sort that in my head. 😛

Write things here, and link to them on all the other places. Remember, own your content. (Yes I know I’m a nag. :P)

2011 brought a lot of dreams to reality for both you and Ron. I’m so glad that things are settling in on the work side so you can enjoy time off, doing other things you love, like…oh…that thing you do with fabric. 😉

Oh you mean the fondle it part? Or the cutting up part? Or the staring at it for hours deciding what to do with it part?


Help I can;t decide!

All of the above and….the sewing together part too! 😉

Which part is the long story, the day you spent with me or the fact you didn’t invite your father?


Just tell us where you do write so we can read them!

That’s why I’m trying to consolidate it all here! 🙂

I agree. Write here and link everywhere else. Is the glow in th dark fabric a problem with A’s quilt? Seems like it comes with the territory of Halloween prints.

Also am I reading too much into the need for lots of baby quilts?
