Another Baby Dino

The gal that my mom works with who took the 3 cats, also wanted me to make something for a baby boy and this is what i decided on.

I really love the blue and orange polka dots. I now wish that I would of bought more of it.

Freya the Fairy

Well I had to put my Wonderland project away for right now....I need to get started on some Christmas presents and I only have about 6 six weeks to get it all done.

My sister invited me to a birthday party for her boyfriend's daughter....or another way to look at it is, I'm invited to a birthday party for a classmate's daughter...I like the first version better.

So yesterday I got out my stash of patterns and found Freya the Fairy by Melly & Me...

...I'm hoping she likes it!

I think she's a little punky cute....I made some adjustments along the way, like the wings.
Now if only I can figure out how to get the head more round-like...I'm not liking all the bumps along the seam.

Wednesday WIP.....

Remember when I showed you the rainbow fabrics....well here's what I've been up to...making progress on my Wonderland quilt top.

So what ya think...I'm liking it so far, but this is going to take me a while to complete.


Yup people, that's a quarter!  I hope this turns out as great as it looks in the head!

Halloween 2010

The had a blast Trick or Treating this year...they even got cupcakes from the neighbors! Our neighbors are awesome...they're old enough be my parents....and when LJ was born (winter time) it seemed we got dumped on with snow about once a week and he and the other neighbor took turns snow blowing our driveway for us! Like I said they are AWESOME!

Anyways, back to Halloween...we went to Andy's parents on Saturday, they only did one small housing addition plus the one his parents live in...Andy's parents direct neighbors were excited to see the kids dressed up...they've enjoyed watching them grow up.

And then on Halloween Day the boys went Trick or Treating in our neighborhood, but we didn't go through the whole addition, since they got tired about 45 minutes into it.

They got enough candy to last them at least until next year, which if it turns out anything like last year I'll be throwing away about of it!
