My friday :)

So I started the day off with making some cinnamon swirl bread in my new bread machine; it smells so wonderful

Then I took the boys for a walk since it was so nice a crisp out after the snowfall last night,

 Then it was time for Maverick to take his nap in the usual place ...

... while I did some selfish knitting

What have you done today?

Quilting Fun

So I have had a sewing machine for quite awhile now but I have been intimidated by the thought. It took me, my husband, and some help from you tube to get a bobbin wound, machine threaded, and everything ready to go!

I follow 'Luvinthemommyhood' blog and was inspired by her quilt here.

The pattern tutorial is found her on Polkadot Chair blog.

I then ventured to Walmart to get some fabric (mine has these cute fat quarters pre-bundled) then came home to cut them up into my rectangles.

Stay tuned to see what happened next!
