Finally, I'm back! I've really missed blogging and have been looking forward to coming back. I had initially planned to return the first of the year, but January turned out to be pretty busy. I did manage to get in a bit of sewing.
This is Sugar Dish, and I love it!
The pattern is by Cluck Cluck Sew, and the fabric is Fresh Air, by American Jane for Moda! And, here's a quick recap of the rest of our January.
After winding down from the holiday season,
we quickly geared up for a trip to Florida.
We had an amazing time. We rode tons of roller coasters, and got to spend the day with my brother, Kevin, who lives in Tampa
(waiting in line to ride the Montu at Busch Gardens). We ate tons of good food,
which just makes us all giddy – because we are foodies to the core ;). I have to say that Emeril's was our favorite,
I'm not typically an oyster girl, but truly, Emeril makes everything delicious. Bubba Gump Shrimp was a very close second,
both for the super fun atmosphere, and the really good seafood. We got to meet real live Minions,
and a personal highlight for me, I legit met the real live
Hello Kitty!! Another highlight was spending some time with the Dolphins at Sea World
We just love the Portofino Bay Resort – it's like a little trip to Italy, only in Orlando ;)!
And, when we returned, well we got back to life as normal. You know, work, cleaning, laundry – lots of laundry! And, the fun stuff too, like baking for my guys
and shopping with Kate and Tate
(Tate taking a break from the stroller at the mall, because well, shopping with Mom and Nona – it's exhausting ;). Just last week, I got to welcome
Joy as the newest member in the sewing family! My sewing machine is named Gracie! And when this new girl arrived, well the feeling that overcame me was Sheer Joy – so there you go! I'm super excited to have her, and I couldn't be more grateful to my wonderful husband for this sweet gift. Watch out pile of quilt tops waiting to be quilted – here I come! And, first on the list is this quilt that I designed and made for my husband ;)!
I have lots of fun things planned for 2017, tons of sewing projects on the list, including some original designs and patterns I hope to share with all of you.
So, Happy 2017 and Happy February to all of you! It's good to be back.
