I Made a Quilt!

I love quilts. Who doesn't? They are so warm and snuggly and comfy! I have been wanting to make a quilt for awhile; a super girly one, with frills and pinks and blues. Or something awesome like this:

Elvis Roberston Quilt
Totally love! I haven't done it yet.

However, when I found out we were having a baby boy, I decided I would try making him a quilt first. Here it is all finished (finally!)

I even made a little dress with the leftover backing fabric. Oh yes I did.

Now I have the guts to make a big one.

Our House has Guts.

Happy New Year!!!

I don't really make resolutions for the year. I guess I made one last year, but that mostly involved a "dream board" and getting my husband to fall in love with me. It worked :)

This year, I think we both have the same goal(s) even though we haven't talked about it: Have baby and finish the house. In that order. Twelve days until the ETA! If he is on time...whatev. Moving on!

Our house is starting to look like a house! For the longest time it has just been the skeleton, but now there are pipes and water lines and electrical! Yes! The electrical is all finished!

Looking through the kitchen to My Honeypie wiring the electrical panel.

An upstairs picture. My sister-in-law wired the can lights for us. Yay!

 My Honeypie also punched out holes for the plumbing vents and tarred them up...this is what he looked like when he got home:

Apparently his trowel broke, so he used his hands...but I guess gasoline cleans everything off!
