One Year of Wedded Bliss Under Our Belts.

Ok, so I should have written about this sooner - but here it is, better late than never!

Well, we did it. On October 2, 2011 marked our one year wedding anniversary. We had a really nice celebration too. We decided to go back to a cabin (Tree Frog Cabins) in Port Townsend, WA. It was gorgeous and so peaceful and relaxing. The weather actually held out too. It was raining in the the evening and during the night, but kept dry during the day. It was so nice for us both to just sit back and not have to be anywhere we didn't want to be. We watched a lot of movies, but also went on some beach adventures and also to a winery tasting room. We had some amazing breakfasts at the local restaurants and just enjoyed giving each other our undivided attention.

We love this place. It is so quiet, peaceful and rejuvenating. We will find our way back there again!!

Stitch by Stitch

I have been using my sewing machine faithfully. I have become a simple quilting addict while creating some cozy quilts for family and friends. I love learning from my sewing mistakes that I classify as "Love Whoops-a-Daisies." It's a time for me to be by myself, listen to some music, watch a movie or just day dream and meditate.

The Henry quilt was made for a friends son. We were blessed to use their property for our wedding and I wanted to give them something special for their kindness and something that Henry and his parents could cuddle up with for family cozy and story time.

The Sophie quilt, for my niece who was also my flower girl in my wedding. She loved the surprise of it and the coziness. I'm so happy I can put smiles on their faces!
Looking forward to some upcoming quilts for friends and neighbors who are welcoming a new little one into their families.

The Magic Machine in Arizona!

One of our gifts for our wedding was made by my Aunt Roselva with the help of her husband, Uncle Mike. What I thought would be a nice thought turned into a masterpiece once it was put in the hands of a dedicated, creative and hardworking woman.
For our wedding, I wanted to have a guest book, but I wanted something that could be displayed and not just pushed aside after a while. After a lot of research and inspiration I came up with the perfect solution. A marriage certificate that everyone could sign! Well, here it is in all it's glory. Professionally framed and finally hanging on my wall! I love that we will have this permanent piece in our home.

Thank you so very much Aunt Roselva - I loved it when I first saw it and I am so happy and blessed to have a piece that was created with so much love in my home!
