Another crazy weekend

I told you. February is crazy busy!

Friday night was my friend Melody's bridal shower. I don't have any pictures from the shower, but I thought I would show you a picture of what I'm making for her wedding. This is the mystery project I've been talking about!

Mystery Project Revealed!

A queen sized butterfly quilt inspired by this one at Little Birdie Secrets! I still need to FMQ this baby but I'm not sure when I will since I don't trust Vera and her temperamental nature. She's been such a jerk lately.

Friday was also my sister's 19th birthday. I made her this infinity scarf using my favorite line, Little Folks.

Isn't she cute?! Linds just loves scarves, so even though it's been in the 80s here, I still think she'll wear it. I was a ding dong and didn't use a tutorial to make this scarf. I was bent on making it myself with no help and I ended up unpicking it about a billion times. I felt like such an idiot. I mean, who can't sew a simple scarf?! Um, that would be THIS GIRL. I took it to the wire, but it came out pretty. I liked it so much I almost kept it! Almost. :)

I made my inspiration board for Stitch Tease: An International Mystery Quilt Bee.

We are teething in our house and Maze finally let me take a picture of her teefers!

Baby Teeth!

Maze being all hacker-ish

She's just too cute looking like a hacker in her Defcon shirt!

Sunday brought Venetia's baby shower. I was so happy she liked the stuff I made for Lennon! I will be sharing tutorials on some of the things I made her later this week.

Birthday Dinner at Olive Garden

And we had a nice family dinner to celebrate mine and my sister's birthdays.

Brent's CISSP certification test was Sunday which means he is finished with the late nights and classes!! Hallelujah! Thank you all for your support. I cannot wait to get my little family back to our regular schedule. Since Brent was busy all week, we are going to be spending Monday and Tuesday doing family stuff, like going to the Peach Blossom Festival! Don't worry. I'll save you a picture of my scrumptious peach pie!
