Hey blog

Not much new to report. Currently in Aspen aka a completely different reality. One that does not involve bedtimes or diapers or trying to translate the utterings of a toddler. But does include television production that is a whole other world of its own. Mind: blown


I never actually published this post.  I blame the flips.  But regret nothing.

 A bunch of stuff has happened since last I posted some two months ago.  Here's a little tour:

We went to a baseball game.  Go Nats!  This was back when there was hope for a winning season.  The Rupper seems to know that no good can come from this team.

This hair happened and was hilarious.

I painted this.  So proud and a little tipsy.

We enjoyed the Memorial Day Parade in my hometown.

4 hours in the ER, 5 stitches, and 1 clumsy baby.

On our flight to California.  What an angel.

Summer time and living is easy.

Why aren't we still there.

The Rupper reluctantly enjoys the beach.

Home from vacation and met by a flat tire.  Insult to injury.

The Rupper's attends his first birthday party.  There were reservations about the ball pit.

More summer fun.

Let's not forget why we're here... the crafting.  Quilt top for Baby Girl RFL.

Binding will have to wait for another night.

Here's a little tease of the quilt top for Newest Corlette - hot off the presses today at 11 lbs. 4 oz.  Yowza. 

The last pic is of a full Pieces of Candy creation.  The Newest Corlette has been assigned the butterfly as her spirit animal, so of course I wanted to create a quilt accordingly.  I scoured the internet for the perfect fabric and came up with this:

Super cute, right?  I secured the delivery of two yards of this fabric with absolutely no idea what I wanted to make with it.  As I started looking through my stash I found 2 fat quarter medleys from Keepsake Quilting - butterfly themed batiks that came as a part of my stash inheritance.  It was too perfect to pass up - all the coordinated fabric I would need (backing and binding included) to make a cute little quilt.  And the sentiment was there as well - my mom knew the Corlettes and had in fact made a few gifts for MJ - a little sweater and adorable pair of pants.  I think she thought of her as kind of a starter grandchild.
said sweater.
As always, I love making things to share with my friends and family, especially when there is a baby involved.  Let's be honest, there's always a baby involved.  I love working on these projects, feeling thankful that I have people in my life that I can inflict my obsession upon, and looking forward to getting to know whoever this little person will become.
