Im totally not going to turn into one of those people that just shows you youtube videos but a friend of mine posted this and its awesome. Neil and I got to see Michael Buble' back in 2007 and he was awesome. Neil and I were having a fight but the concert and MB was fantastic. What an awesome mom for going up there and doing that. Also super glad MB didnt just throw her off stage or whatever.
Yay! Go Sam!!
I have an appointment today! I get to see Jack! Well.. here's hoping he's still a Jack! I guess we'll see.

I havent had any morning sickness so I bet if we werent trying I wouldnt have known for a while but instead we found out at 4 weeks! SO EARLY! Its so early to tell people too so it was quite hard keeping it in for so long. Last week we finally caved and told the internet. It was so good to be able to talk about it openly to everyone. Im just glad everyone knows now. I wanted to tell with a photo and it turns out the military only gives you ONE ULTRASOUND! Im not going to lie, I was a bit upset when I heard this. But I still went to my appointment anyway luckily and unluckily they couldnt find a heartbeat. Which is hard to depict at 10 weeks anyway its better at 12 so why they schedule you to come in at 10 is beyond me. Anyway, I was upset and nervous about it and the lady doctor scheduled me for one. Which im sure happens all the time. I was able to make it in the following day without any waiting. She did a transvaginal which I didnt expect and the second it was in there I was 2 tiny little feet moving all around. I think if it had been bigger all the kicking might have hurt but luckily its still small. It was crazy seeing it move so much. It moved the entire time, I guess it might have been the sugary breakfast I had. Yum Toaster Strudels! My next appointment is at 14 weeks and Im super excited for it although I have no idea whats going to happen then.. Here is our baby's second photo. Second photo you say, yes one of my best friends is an ultrasound tech and took some photos at 4 weeks which is pretty much a tiny blob but.. she took them all the same.
So Im excited to start sewing baby things, soon it will happen!

Man o Man. Where has the time gone? I feel like I am not living up to my craft goals here. I am catching up though. But the thing is I'm making a lot of quilts and those take a whole heck of a longer time then other crafts do. Since something sad is happening
next month oh! this month I took some leave from work(sorta) and have been able to go on vacation with Neil and just stop stressing so much. Ive also been able to sew! Hoooooooray! I finished a baby quilt for my friend Bentley. She's due to have a baby girl at the beginning of September, although I think were hoping shes goes sooner than that so baby and daddy can meet. She requested no pink but I think she trusted me that I wasn't going to make something with "baby puke colors" as I like to refer to them. I'm not really a fan of light colors when it comes to anything except maybe the paint color.. and even then.. probably not.
I tried the zigzag pattern again using the tutorial at A Quilt is Nice. Its the same pattern from baby Christopher's quilt I just followed the directions this time. Except I messed up a little can you tell where? I think it works still.
It was a lot of fun and the fabric cutting went relatively quickly. I used some of my favorite fabrics and some of my more random stuff but I love the color combos and the fabrics and how they work together. I even used some of my Nicey Jane stash. I love me some Nicey Jane.
For all my binding instructions and help I have used Crazy Mom Quilts tutorial. Its pretty much the best I have found. So very helpful. I had the easiest time with the binding here. I think after.. 5 quilts I'm finally starting to get it. YAY!
I was also able to finish
and start my blocks for May, June and July for the Fresh Comfort Bee. Just in time for August! I feel horrible for being so late on them. But they are done now.
This last block was my absolute favorite pattern I have done with the bee so far. I think I might make a quilt doing these squares too!
I also loved her fabric choices. These are for her daughter. What a lucky little girl she is!!
Last night after I was done with my bee blocks I started my very own Christmas quilt. Ill be using this pattern from Crazy Mom quilts(I like her, have you noticed?) Im using 12 Days of Christmas by Moda. Ill end up needing 4 more charm packs. Its going to be quite a pricey quilt but it IS for me so its worth it. :) I don't think Ill quilt it because I dont think my machine can handle it so that saves in timing. :)
