Party Post

Most of the last week was spent getting everything ready for Squeak's 1st birthday.  I did manage to get a bit of sewing done in my spare time :)

My Orbit Quilt Top is complete!  Now I have until April 1st to get it quilted and bound.  I'm not going to hold my breath...

My March block of the And Sew On is done

I was accepted into the Modern She Made Swap on Flickr.  After reading and re-reading my partners likes and dislikes I came up with this little bundle.  I'd love your thoughts!  I was thinking a tote, a pouch, and possibly a covered journal.  I bought quite a bit of fabric and I play to keep making items on her list until I run out of fabric or time.  The theme this round is stars.  A star must be incorporated somehow (fabric, quilting, design, etc.) and I have several ideas of how to make this work.

Now about that birthday party:

Sorry for the extremely blurry picture!

A closer view

Target did a pretty good job on our cupcakes and the white ones were delicious (chocolate--not so good).

It took him a minute to get started since there was a lot going on but once he got the hang of it...

He looked like this!  He has tons of new toys to play with and even more to come!  I hope it was the best first birthday possible :).  He deserved it!

Linking up to Let's Get Acquainted at Plum & June Owen's Olivia , Anything Goes, and BOMs Away Monday.


  1. Oh I can't wait to see my grandsons on their first birthday. Thank you for such a sweet pic of the birthday boy

  2. Love your orbit. My pattern is printed out and one fabric cut. :)

  3. Nice to see the FIRST birthday party was sew much fun! I love your thread block... PS. Don't worry, get lots of rest, and don't give up your WHOLE sewing room! They may slow you down, but will love to see their mom happy and busy...

  4. Awww, how cute :) First birthdays are all about the face-mash! That's a very nice thread block. I wish I were doing that BOM!

  5. First birthdays are the best!! So many fun projects; I especially love your Spooling Around block!

  6. Love the Orbit quilt. The combination of pinks and browns is super cute.
