Little Helper

Ahh it seems like it's been a long time since I posted anything that I have made. Truth is I haven't made much of anything lately. Adjusting to work has been one thing, but also planning Cody's birthday and trying to spend lots of time outside while it's nice has taken up most of the time. I love the sun, so when it is shining I try to enjoy it.

I am just in the process now of getting my other blog printed. This was the blog I made just for Cody, as a way of journalling our first year together. So I went to and put my book together. I think it is going to awesome to have this. I admit since I started it, I didn't keep up with the other baby book that I had originally bought!

Anyway I am both happy and sad to be finished with that blog. I think I will start another one, that will sort of continue on with what I was doing for Cody, but perhaps it will include other types of pictures of our life. I think I will reserve this one mostly as a personal and crafting blog, and the other can be for the whole family (including any new additions that might come along)!
The day before yesterday I decided to get started on the final baby rag-time quilt that was ordered months and months ago. I have already finished the blue one and the pink one which I posted previously. Now this one is green and yellow since this couple won't be finding about the sex of the baby. It is due in September so I still have lots of time to complete it. But I thought hey, might as well do it now. I am feeling rather unmotivated lately to start any new projects (more on that later). Anyway I love the fabrics I chose for this quilt. The funky farm animals are so much fun, and the colors are bright and playful. Also, here is a picture of my little helper.
Rather than stand at the table and have him pull on my pant legs, I decided to pull him up on the table. The result: quilt squares flying everywhere! It was cute!

Number 1 Birthday

So yesterday was not only Canada Day, but also my little boy's FIRST birthday. I decided to go with the flag cake idea because I thought it would be fun. Also, he is too young to appreciate a horsey, tractor, or other type of cake. He's only one so he really had no clue what all the commotion was about. Here is a picture of the cake and the birthday boy!
