worth it

the fourth time he got out of bed to come say good night to me i was a little annoyed. but i didn't show it.

he gave me a big squeeze then put his nose right up to mine and sweetly whispered, "you're my best friend."

then he ran off into his room and promptly fell asleep.


granny has skills

nate and my sister often tell me that although i'm a young lively 29-year-old, i'm much like an 80-year-old granny when it comes to my hobbies. apparently baking, sewing and quilting are qualities attributed to grandma's.

i guess they have their point. 

one of my goals in life is to be as talented as my grandma. 

and after we spent some time at her house in august i came home with a whole list of things she can do that i want to do. and she specifically told me that if i want to be a real quilter i need to learn to hand quilt. so i accepted that challenge and took on two projects that are blowing my mind in a totally amazing way. the obvious first choice for me was called "grandmother's flower garden". it's done completely by hand. each little piece is barely bigger than a quarter. it's semi-slow work, but the effect is soooooo beautiful.

the other quilt i started is done part by hand, and part by machine. i remember seeing one at my grandma's house when i was little and always thought that it was far to complicated for me to try. it involves a lot of folding, pinning & patience. the work is tedious but the end result is so incredible. 


he struck again...

the iphone photo phantom took some more secret photos. it looks like he's figuring the phone out. instead of using the regular camera he got into some of my photo apps and started using filters. way to go little man!
