Hello Friday--I have missed you! ;) It has been such a crazy week around here. I feel like I have neglected my poor blog lately.
Hopefully next week will be a bit better! :)
Isn't this fabric delicious? I saw it--I loved it--I bought it. This seems to be a recurring problem of mine, I just can't say no to such lovely fabrics. Especially one's that are just so colorful as these:
I have seen rainbow quilts everywhere. I see them and I can't help but think I need to make one. I mean, really HAVE to make one. It is my goal to make one this year! I don't know which pattern, or how large I will make it--but it will be done. Mark my words. :) And seriously--I think this bundle is a perfect start to make that possible.

So now on to the random bits and pieces of my life within the last week or so:
We had a good sized storm come our way--and it dropped a good 1/2 a foot of snow. Which isn't that much in our neck of the woods--schools don't get canceled and businesses don't close unless we get like 6 feet of snow--that's no joke! :) The kids loved it and had fun playing in it for hours!
I know I have posted about this before, but it never gets old. I was just browsing pinterest the other night and low and behold this picture of my Love Squared quilt came up. Made my night. :)
I have recently invested in a a paper planner. *GASP* Do other people actually enjoy writing things down, rather than putting it on a computer? For some reason, I love writing things down on paper. Lists, dates, notes, appointments---I write down on paper. I hardly ever use my calendar on my iPhone or computer. There is just something about having it on paper that makes me happy. Plus I am a doodler--if you put a blank sheet of paper in front of me--it will not stay blank for long--I doodle until there is no more space. It used to drive my mom nuts when I was younger because she would hang a calendar on the fridge and I would doodle all over it until you couldn't even tell it was a calendar! :) I am surprised my calendar here looks so tidy:
We had a little incident over the weekend---My little Avie hurt herself and cut the inside of her top lip super bad. It was horrible--we had to take her to the ER because it was after hours and we live in such a small town that they do not have an after hours clinic--You just have to go to the ER--which stinks because it wasn't really an emergency--but her lip would not quit bleeding and she had skin dangling. It was not looking good, she didn't have to get stitches--luckily--but her lip stayed fat for a good 3 days.
What happens when you spill your milk all over the floor? You lap it up off the floor--that's what! No, really--I left the room for 2 minutes and came back to find her just a drinking her spilled milk off the floor. The good thing--the floor was mopped the day before. The bad thing--the floor was mopped the day before--and needed to be mopped again. :) Such is life.
It took some serious talent to get these two little pig-tails in her hair...but I managed. They even stayed in for more than 10 minutes. :)
I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend!
Talk to you soon,
