Her birthday was the 3rd of March. To celebrate, I took her to get her ears pierced. Now, no one but my sister and I would understand what a momentous thing this actually is. We have been trying to talk her into it for years and years and years but she would never do it.
But this year she has been doing a few updates on her look and she decided to go for it.
She has an appointment with Bella, my fantastic hairdresser on Tuesday. We are thinking a nice "Hallie Berry-do" is now in order.
By the time she gets home, her friends won't recognize her!
My own Sweet Sixteen free-motion quilting machine. It was my Valentine's gift from Matt. Now, I can count on one hand the times I have gotten a Valentine's gift. In fact, I have jibed him a bit for it. Well, I'll never be able to say another word. I guess when he makes up for something he really goes big!
The pattern is peaking out from under the pieces.
Although there is a lot of cutting and piecing, it is a simple pattern. It's coming together quite nicely.
This quilt is going to be for a baby girl, so here is the backing fabric. I've decided to quilt it using a light, light pink thread. Though, it may be another few weeks before I can get to it.
My mom's only here through the end of April. I've only got so much free time and I choose to spend it with her. Quilting will always be there, Mom won't.
