the becca baby quilt

a while ago I posted a teaser for this quilt.  Now I finally get to share it with you since I’m no longer traveling and I know she received it.

and the back…

Can’t decide which I like better.  Went a little crazy making this one.  No set plan per se.  Just cut several strips and went to town making log cabin blocks in squares and rectangles.  Of course I did a graph paper drawing …I’m not that crazy :)

It turned out better than I had imagined.  My husband (skeptical as always at first) even said it looked good…that’s huge! :)


travel is overrated…

The kids at the Houston Aquarium

I’m back!  Six weeks is a really long time to be gone from home.  On this whirlwind tour the kids and I visited

my parents in Austin, TX

my Brother and his wife in McAllen, TX

my inlaws in Houston, TX

my extended family in Jerrell, TX

Las Vegas, NV

Avila Beach, CA

Simi Valley, CA

and good ‘ol Disneyland in Anaheim, CA

It actually was a really good trip, but I have never loved being home more!  Unfortunately, my daughter has had Diarrhea on and off since May 21st and currently has a fever of 102…Its been a bit crazy.  I don’t think I want to see a suitcase again for awhile…
