Finishes-2012-W16: "I'm Elmo And I Know It..."

So It has been a month since I last blogged...and I haven't really finished, well, anything to be honest.  For those visiting from SEW WE QUILT looking for my Project in the Table Topper Blog Hop, please return on Wednesday when I shall have it posted!  Mdm Samm was gracious to allow me to be added to the last day since I forgot to set my post up!

So What have I been doing?
My Husband and I just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary with a nice dinner at Jack In The Box! (Although that is what we did on the date, I am just being cheeky, H did take me out to a wonderful supper a week later). Our baby girl, Ziona,  just turned 2 months old and she is such a delight to be with!  But otherwise I have been in a bit of a blur going from day to day, never really sure what the date or day of the week might be!  That is the one thing I could definitely count on when I was regularly blogging:  a nice, beautiful schedule to follow.  I would actually plan out my projects and posts for the whole month, setting goals because I felt like I had bloggie friends who kind of kept me accountable.  Please don't expect things to settle in until some time June because we are moving over Memorial Day Weekend.  I have so many plans for the rest of the summer and fall; so much I want to do and accomplish!

My SIL, MIL, Husband, FIL and myself, at our Wedding April 10, 2004!

Consequently, we are going to be doing a lot of packing over the next 4 weeks.  My craft room has been given over to Ziona over the past 2 months, and although she does share the space with my fabric still, I have been relocated to our living room (I have to tip toe into her room like Elmer Fud to grab items during nap time).  Up until this past week I have pretty much worked on one project and then a bit of mending.  This week I decided not to nap during the afternoon nap but work on something else.  I am afraid to tell you that even with my long list of projects I couldn't help myself, I started a couple more quilt tops!

Double Pinwheels Quilt-
Although I have a pile of blocks and plastic project bags spread across  my working area, this is the quilt top I am hoping to get finished this weekend.  I put this block together by accident (although I am sure someone has it floating around the interweb in their own form) I was playing around with pre-cuts and this is what resulted.  I had to move away from my Cowboy Table Topper after the disastrous mistakes I made in its assembly I need a little more time to regroup!  I can show you some pictures of that fiasco next week!

And now I am going to leave you with a slice of my new position as a mother, a song that runs in my head every day since my husband shared it with me!  Okay, I am off to share Finding Nemo with Ziona for the first time...
