Where has February gone? I know this always happens but still. It doesn't help that I was sick for 2 weeks, just now feeling better (the usual cold, that turned into a sinus infection, that still lingers a bit and causes me to *gasp* snore).


My sweetie and I have made great progress in terms of wedding planning. We've now nailed down the venue, photographer, and band. Yay! I'm really glad that we have sooo much time - it allows us to enjoy this process. My mom is coming down next weekend and we'll be doing the first round of bridal dress shopping - I'm so excited!

I feel like it's a been a while since I made any major progress on crafty projects. Since my sweetie had some work to do this morning, I spent the time sewing and managed to finish this:
It's a SUPER snuggly lap quilt (for us to keep) made of Anna Maria Horner's Loulouthi in flannel. Seriously, if you haven't gotten your hands on some of this, you must. It's sooooo soft and cozy. Louie jumped at the chance to be the first one in our house to test it out, fresh out of the dryer.

I also pulled out all of my unfinished quilts (there are so many...) and decided that the first one I'd tackle would be the one below, which I plan for us to use as a bed quilt. We have no fewer than 4 lap/couch quilts in our apartment but not one that's big enough for the bed. I'm not sure if I'll tackle the actual quilting of this since I have a pretty small machine and this quilt will be queen size but we'll see. I typically don't do complicated quilting on my quilts (I prefer to let the fabric be the focus) so I may just go ahead and try.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We're having a date night at a new-to-us bistro near my office and then off to watch basketball with some friends.

Also, on a random note, I've become totally obsessed with Pinterest!

  1. Ooh, that flannel quilt looks snuggly! I made some pillowcases with my favorite print from the line, but a whole quilt? Lovely! I'm glad the planning has been enjoyable so far! I hope you enjoy the entire process!
