Thursday Three - Three trips to JoAnn Fabric

I just finished a baby quilt for Rocket. I wanted to try piecing it together and doing binding that didn't just come from folding the back over to the front. Here is the final product. It did take me three trips to the fabric store which I was not anticipating but all and all I am really happy with the finished product.

Thanks again to online tutorials - One and Two

Thursday Three - 3 fun filled days

I was really fortunate in college to meet some of my best friends. We have stayed really close since we left school and since then we have done two roommate runions. One of which was about two months ago. We space them three years apart and I am already looking forward to the next one.

I was so happy to have everyone agree to come to Seattle so I could host this year. We laughed, ate, hung out, got pedicures, went to the temple, saw Seattle sites, ate (did I mention that) and really enjoyed being together. Between the 7 of us it was a small miracle that we were all able to make it leaving husbands and kids at home.

Sorry for the small pictures. I hate small pictures.

Garden Update

Things are going fairly well in the garden. Slugs keep eating things but I try to go out daily to pick them out and hope they have not done too much damage. We ate our first broccoli the other night. Truth be told, it was not that good. A little disappointing but I am not giving up. The weather here makes gardening a little tricky but Blake and I are enjoying watching things grow. He was so excited to pick the broccoli and couldn't wait to eat it for dinner.
