Once upon a time...

...there was a blog that belonged to a creative quilter. The quilter went missing and was replaced by a half crazed mommy/student. Not so crafty anymore. It's hard to not have the creative juices going right now. I've got a few weddings coming up and I swear everyone is getting pregnant (not me though, phew!) so there are quilts to be made. With the holidays staring us in the face I feel some pressure to deliver with my usual hand made gifts and lots of baked goodies. I'm going to at least make my ornaments.

Christmas is a while away so I'll worry about that later. (The Art of Procrastination- 101)

I wanted to share the silly little game the girls played at Hannah's party last weekend. Instead of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, we played "Pin the Kiss on Edward." It was pretty funny to watch and they all thought it was fun to play.

Seth thought Hannah's gift bags were toys. Well, aren't they?

Where'd Seth go?

There he is!

Yeah, he still thinks that's fun to play. Hide and Seek, baby. You're never too old for it.

Since last Saturday with Hannah's party and all the Halloween fun I attended a birth with my doula client Z. It was a long labor which none of us expected. She went nice and slow for it being her second time around but she did get to have a natural birth like she wanted. I love that I got to be there for the birth of both of her boys. It really does make me feel special.

I'm taking a "me day" tomorrow and going to the quilt store in Pennington. All alone! It'll be odd to be up in that neck of the woods and not to see my mom. I haven't had a reason to head up to the Princeton area since they left. Yummy fabrics are calling me and I think that's a good reason to go. Spend some of that money I earned as a doula. After 12 hours at the hospital I definitely earned it.

I eeked out a bit of time here and there to finish up the baby quilt I was working on. It isn't very baby-ish but I went for soft fall colors since the baby was born in the fall.

Seth wanted in on the picture taking action.

I also whipped out a little 6" block for the quilt guild. Every year they do something for the current guild president. They'll present all the signature blocks to her in December.

Maybe I'll have some enticing fabrics to share with you tomorrow. If anything I'll have some pictures to show you next week because we're going to the Punkin Chunkin down in Delaware. Sadly we can't get our nephew while we're there but we tried.
