Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of what I am working on for Trae. I am so excited about it all. I am loving how all of the fabrics are coming together. Some of these I happened upon very randomly and unexpectedly and they are some of my favorites.
Here are other pictures from our drive to California this past time. All of these pictures are in Truckee. We love it there.

Bella loves the snow just as much as we do.

New Projects

I have two new projects I will start on soon. The first is a baby blanket for dear friends of our in California. I will be doing a simple design so I have time to wait to find out the sex of the baby.
The second is one for Trae. I am really excited about it. I am not doing a single collection or even really trying to match colors. I am choosing fabrics that remind me of him and all of his passions. Since he might read this, I am not going to mention what the fabrics are or show pictures. I have ordered a few prints online and am just waiting for them to come in now. I am very excited about all of them and I am loving how they are turning out so far. I will show you this is pattern I will be using for Trae's quilt.
This is what I want the baby quilt to look like, although I can not find a tutorial anywhere, I will just go for it on my own.
Classes start back tomorrow. I am ready to get it going. The sooner it starts, the sooner it will get done.

Over the past few months, I have been cooking some great things also. Chocolate souffle with peanut butter pastry cream in the center, puff pastry ham and cheese, coconut cake, cream puffs, garlic cheese biscuits, chocolate chip cookies, and lots of good stuff.
