2011 Book

It came!!! I am so excited. It was an awesome mail week last week. I got my project 365 book from blurb. 52 scrapbook pages all in one nice little book. oh I just love it!

I know that it is almost the end of February, but in my defense, I was stumped on what to do for the front and back cover. But I got them done and ordered it at the beginning of Feb and it came last week! And my kids love it. They spent the afternoon looking through it and commenting on the photos with a remember this attitude.

Which makes me really regret that I am not doing it this year. I am doing something similar but just not the picture of the day. I did start taking more pictures of the kids after they loved this book so much.

And also last week in the mail I got my monthly scrapbook pages that I have done for the last two years. Yes I am a little slow with printing them, but I got them done. I printed them over at Scrapping Simply. They do great work and you should go and like them on facebook because they will have a sale here when they get around 20 more followers! And that means cheaper prints for everyone!!

Peacock Rag Quilt

Friday we had a snow day. They called it on Thursday afternoon before it even started snowing. But this was a big one. We ended up getting about 15 inches total and this is what it looks like out in my backyard from my upstairs window. I took this when I finished this quilt I am going to tell you about in just a minute - about 2pm, and it was still snowing this morning when we woke up.

I just finished up this beautiful 'peacock' colored quilt for a friend of mine. I was super quick and easy - which I love. I think it took longer for us to figure out when to get together and what exactly she wanted then it took for me to make this.
The back is the same purple as on the front. I added the purple to the front to help it tie in with the back.
She wanted a rag quilt, and I decided to use rectangles because I wanted to have as little waste as possible. She ordered the fabric and we did not have quite enough to make it a twin, so I tried to stretch this every way possible.
I was trying to decide to do a pattern for the fabrics or just do random. I asked Conan and he said the pattern was less like anything else I had done, so I went with it!
Anyway, now it is sitting on the bench by my door, just waiting to be picked up. It was a birthday present for my friend and I hope that she loves it!

Too bad all my snow days are not this productive. But Conan was home from work and we had put the kids to work on their rooms.
