I am excited to announce a couple things; one that I am back and safe and had a blast with my family and two that I should be done with the quilt tomorrow night. All I need to do is finish the official quilting. The quilt made progress last week and could have been done last week but I because I am not going down to Orange County until February 8th I decided to stretch it out a little bit. After that quilt I am going to start on a large quilt a 5x6 for my brother (he is 6’4”) some of the fabric already arrived from Etsy but I have failed to check my mail so I will get it later today. It is going to be an orange, yellow, red & black quilt. If it turns out how I imagine it then it will be awesome.

I also want to make some reverse appliqué shirts from one of my favorite blogs (Sweet Verbena- Her Tutorial Here!) I had planned on making one a while ago just never did so maybe this week will be the lucky week. In addition to the reverse appliqué I am going to be working on refashioning some of the clothes in my closet. Some dresses are now too short and need to become a shirt and some of Nico’s old jeans are going to become shorts for me and a couple other refashions. The wheels in my mind are turning! :]
So here we go with the pictures from my trip, the weekend started with my amazing watch Nico got my for my birthday. It is definitely a beauty! :] We started by eating dinner at Isla in Treasure Island and just ventured around. I think it was a successful day since I only slept 4 hours on my birthday. I gambled some and lost but it is part of the experience but I at least budgeted my self and stuck to it.

|Excuse the blur but I love this picture|
I got to see my brothers, my mom, my dad and stepmom and the best most beautiful nieces ever ( I am not impartial at all- hah). My camera did not end up with the bulk of the pictures that would be my on my mother’s camera so I will have some family pictures up after I go down to Orange County. It is a lot easier to use a usb than to have her email me all of them.
So that was that, stay tuned later this week for the full quilt tutorial! Happy Tuesday!
