The past month...

Well, it seems like I'm getting worse at this blog thing. I have been doing things for the past month but I just thought they were too mundane for anyone to want to read. But my mother is ashamed of my idleness and wants me to be more consistent (good luck with that one). Because I think pictures make a blog more appealing and interesting, that's what you're going to get. :)

This is the rag quilt I made for my amazing ex-roommate Tess as a wedding gift (pre-fluff, of course). I just loved the colors and the fabrics were ADORABLE! This took less than a moth to complete and I'm very satisfied with how it turned out. She got married on August 8 in Denver, Colorado and I was so glad that I had the opportunity to go. It was gorgeous and I had a blast, but... like an idiot I didn't take a single picture. What was I thinking?!

I've been home in Henderson during the two week break in between semesters and it's been oh-so-relaxing! Here's a taste :)

Thanks to some lovely teenagers, our house was TPed the first weekend I was home. Figures.

We have big trees :)

The most effective way to remove toilet paper strands from high limbs.
(we've had a lot of practice, obviously)


My wittle Chester! Oh how I love him! He got bored with us outside because we wouldn't throw around his toy. :( He's slightly obsessed with playing fetch and I'm pretty sure he's the most perfect dog EVER. Yeah... I'm pretty sure about that.

Matt got bored as well and somehow always ends up pestering whoever is close by. In this case, Chester was just begging to get bugged...



Ok... so I didn't post very many pictures at all but more will be on their way. This blog really takes a heck-of-a-lot more time than it should and for some reason, I always forget that.

My quilt!!!!!!!!!!! I love it more than words could ever express! I am sooo glad that you came too. I'll email you some pictures. We're still waiting for the photographer's pictures, but for now the amateur ones are fun. Seriously, Angie, you're the best!

YAY! You posted; I knew your mom and I would be great friends. I love the quilt- it looks so Anthropologie-esque. Let's be friends forever!
