1/17/10 – 1/23/10 Although blurry, I love my new purple sweater along with matching nail polish. And momma’s got a brand new bag too… Saturday night we went to the Crystal Palace Burlesque Show at the Lakewood Theater, which was fun. Lots of amazing performers!


Singing "Be Italian" in My Head

It’s been awhile since I went to the movies. Yesterday afternoon, I met up with a good friend and after indulging in Mexican food (my favorite), we went to see Nine. When I first saw the ads for this movie, I wanted to see it. And I finally got my wish! Let me just say, […]

1/10/10 – 1/16/10 January is usually full of thinking about new projects and starting new things. This piece features a quote from Rodin. I can’t wait to see more of it come alive. This is a piece hanging in my local needlework shop. I am just in awe of it. The thing is HUGE!

1/3/10 – 1/9/10 This week was all about quilting. I finished the baby quilt for Cole. I’m really happy with how it turned out. And I started a calendar quilt. One strip of fabric for every day of the year.


Holiday Entertaining

Week’s Photos

12/27/09 – 1/2/10 My Christmas gift to myself, a quilt kit for a quilt called Winter Trees. The way they packaged it up is so pretty, I’m hesitating to break into it. And a Christmas card from my friend, Kim, came with this little note on the envelope. She knows me too well. And I […]


Welcoming in the New Year

I can hardly believe it’s a new year. I’m not entirely sure what happened to 2009, but there you have it. I took off work from the 23rd through the 1st, which was heavenly. Eric and I took a break from the gym and I got a break from work and school. I can’t begin […]
