Baby Quilt...FINALLY FINISHED!

I started this quilt as soon as we knew the couple was pregnant. That was back in February 2008. Needless to say, the baby has arrived and is now over a year old. Oops. I blame the N-boy in part, as he helped me choose the pattern. He liked this "Amish Waves" pattern, and somehow I didn't think that the triangles would be a problem. Oops. Each block is 8 finished and has 48 triangles. Teeny tiny triangles.

So here is is... I'm happy it's finished, and actually quite pleased with the way it turned out.

The N-boy also helped me choose some of the fabrics, and some of them came from my stash and from scraps I inherited from Grammy.

It's quilted in the ditch with invisible thread on the top, with an off-set black quilted square in the middle of each block.

Now it's all packaged up with a card and a letter, addressed and just waiting for the post office to open.
Yay for FINALLY getting it done!!!

Fall in Indiana

Well I am ashamed that it has been two months since I have posted ANYTHING on my blog. And this is despite the Momcat asking me about when I'm going to post something pretty much every time I talk.

It's been a busy busy fall. Here are a few things that the N-boy and I have been up to:

Going to a hockey game.

Shopping at the Farmer's Market.

Raking leaves (the new house came with trees....and lots of leaves!)

Dressing up for Halloween as Captain Hammer and Dr. Horrible.

Cooking (and eating) at Cooking Club. The N-boy was delegated to the "Man Club" for this. But he still got to eat!

We dog sat for an hour at work. Isn't he cute!

I attended a conference, and am graduating from a professional development program!

Our good friends got married! Yay!
So it's been busy. I've also gotten some crafting done, including the completion of the ever elusive baby quilt! I'm taking pictures of it tonight and will post pictures tomorrow! Woohoo for getting things off my UFO list! Of course, I keep thinking of new projects I want/need to start!
