Before I’m 26

I know I just turned 25.  But I want to accomplish a few things before I turn 26.  Kinda a New Years Goal list thingy…

  1. Run in a 5k.  (I’m not much of a runner lol)
  2. Take better care of myself (ie drop some lbs)
  3. Get Pregnant with Baby #2 (Long Story)

I’m sure there’s more.  Wait a minute 1 and 3 contradict themselves.   Ahh details. :) 

Thanks for all the birthday wishes.  I got in touch with everyone I had an email for.  And Shana won the giveaway.  (It’s in the mail now Shana.)

So tomorrow is my birthday (read a giveaway post) and I’ve never dreaded a birthday…until this one.  For some reason beyond me….I’m dreading turning 25.  Maybe it’s because I see myself as a mom, wife and homemaker at 25 and my college friends are single, childless and starting their careers.  For my birthday, I’m staying in and having a nice afternoon with the family.  And my friends are renting out martini lounges for their 25th.  But anyway…onto the giveaway…that’s why your here!

For your consideration…..


Yes… that is 4 fat quarters from Kate Spain’s 12 Days of Christmas.

You want them?  Well all you have to do is:

  1. Leave me a cheery chatty comment.  It is my birthday after all.
  2. Become a follower of the blog.  Or if you already follow me leave a little note letting me know.

Make sure to leave a note for each and you can get 2 chances to win.  I will take comments until noon Thursday July 22 Alaska Time.  And if your international, you can enter too!  So get to some comment love. :)

Works in Progress

I’m starting early on Christmas items.  Especially with this.DSC_0296

That will be this soon.  I can’t wait!  But I must because I still need to quilt this…


It’s called the Coast Guard Star quilt block from Quilters Cache.  I on the other hand am going to make it into a mini quilt and on the back place a tag for each place the Coast Guard sends us during my husband’s career.  I’m only 4 stations behind. :)

Well, I think naptime is coming to an end so I’m gonna go play mommy for the next few hours.  Bye!

The Process Pledge

I know alot of the blogs I read are joining in and I took the plunge too.  I’m not an excellent quilter and I think by everyone seeing my mess before the finished project will boost some self esteem. 

I joined in here.  I’ll post up some pictures of my current projects when Sydney is taking her nap.
