Hey gang – my sincere apologies for the lack of blog posts. I swear I have been working hard during that time away!
Today is just a highlight of some of what has been going on in our little world since last we met.
I have 3/12 of the swoon blocks done for our wedding quilt. The longest part is cutting and ironing all the little bits and pieces, but they are coming along nicely.
Dan & I decided that since we are two months out from wedding bells that we should probably work on getting in shape. Obviously, neither of us is at risk for any sort of overweight title, but it couldn’t hurt to tighten up! And, possibly, get a tan… jeez! So here are our “Before” pictures, that we can compare to later. You heard it here, you have to hold us accountable. Guess that means I don’t get to skip out on the gym again tonight…
I gave mister dog man a haircut. As you can see, my dog grooming skills need a little work.
Look! They have matching mustaches!
I made these flower cupcakes for the July birthday peeps at work! They are made out of candy melts and sprinkles on top.
And last, but certainly not least, I started this lovely lil doll. Its a houndstooth baby quilt, and I am just finishing up the top-stitching on it before I add a bright orange binding on it. The backing is a brilliant blue. I have no idea what kind of baby room theme this would go with but I couldn’t help myself!
I will be reusing the houndstooth pattern in the future for some California Girl from Moda that I have. I don’t even want to cut that fabric, I love it so much. Ugh. conundrum.
More posts to come soon (I promise) as we finish up wedding stuff and get this ball rolling. 56 days to get in shape and finish planning this wedding!!!
