It's baby time!

One of my coworker friends just told me this week that she's pregnant!!! Congratulations Momma Jess and Papa Tony!!! :) Well that night I went to Target and bought some of the cloth diapers to use for burp cloths. Then I dug through my stash and bought an 1/8th yard of the animal fabric to accent them! I picked the animals and the jungle vines and the giraffe print because they're decorating their nursery in the jungle theme! :)

They're super cute and super easy!

New York City!!!

I went to New York City on Tuesday and Wednesday and saw as much as humanly possible. My friend and I walked around and put on over five miles on Tuesday and saw Central Park, 5th Avenue, and TONS of other stuff including Times Square!!!

Wednesday we got up early and were on the first ferry to Liberty Island! That was really neat! We sure got our $12 worth!!!

And after all of that, on our way back to the airport on Wednesday, my friend let me stop at the City Quilter quilt shop. I say "let" in the best sense of the word. She waited patiently while the lady cut my fabric and laughed when she totaled it all up! :) The only thing that was odd was that the store was open, but we had to ring a doorbell and be buzzed in!

It was really neat in there and I wish I had more time to look around, but the airlines wait for no one. I'll go back someday though! For all those thousands of people, they only had that one quilt shop!!! Huh! Weird!

I went and visited my cousin in DeKalb, Illinois, and dragged her into a quilt shop. As it turned out, she found an applique pattern that she fell in love with and bought. She's started on the tracing of the fusible web, and is in the process of gathering the perfect fabrics! :) Me on the other hand, I bought some fabric (Spirit by Lila Tueller for Moda, and a few coordinates).

And then a "patternlet" by The Wooden Bear Quilt Designs. It's a penguin on a hand towel. I couldn't resist going through my stash when I got home and making one! He's super easy and super cute!!! And it helps that I found a great place for hand towels and the white flour towels as well! I love his beady little eyes.....

Look for another blog soon! I'm headed to New York City this coming Tuesday and Wednesday and have plans to visit the City Quilter!!! :)
