I love quilting.

I am officially an expert quilter after only one class.

hahaha yea right.

But for serious, class was amazing. It was the first of five classes and by the last class I will have produced an entire quilt, made by yours truly.

I am already planning out all the quilts I am going to make for various people in my life.

I am going to make a mickey crib quilt for Mrs. Joe when she gets KU.

And all of my 10 neices and nephews are getting quilts from their Auntie Rootbeer for Christmas this year. I think I need to start making them now ;)

The quilt I am working on in class, I think I will keep for myself.
1. It is my very first quilt so it will be kinda sentimental
2.It is my very first quilt so it will probably be messed up

Being in the class was hysterical. I was the youngest by at LEAST 25 years. Read as...I was sitting in a room with old ladies.
I loved it!

I love old ladies!

It's kinda like being in a room full of grandmas, and really what's better than that???


Also, I started spotting today.

Which means, my period will be here any day and I am on to the next mother effing cycle. GRRRRRRRR

I am starting to not even care.

Is that bad? Or is that good?

Being upset and obsessive over trying to have a baby really hasn't done much for me over the past year or so.

Ugh whatever, talking about quilting is so much better...

Time for a Makeover

It is high time this blog got a makeover. I am thinking about making the move over to wordpress, but for now, I will be here.

I am sure you've noticed I haven't been posting much. The truth is that there is not much more to say about TTC, miscarriage, and infertility right now.

In fact, I am focusing on other things right now in my life. Things that are happy and cheery and most importantly things that I have control over.

And of course I will be sharing them with you!

I am off to my first quilting class today.

Mr. Rootbeer bought me a sewing machine for my birthday last month. And I was bursting at the seams (pun intended) to learn how to use it. So, I signed up for a quilting class.

Which starts today!

So far I have successfully finished two projects: a shower curtain and a kitchen wetbag. More to come on those later.

Stay tuned faithful readers...
