Well I finished quilting the NYE mystery quilt that I posted a picture of earlier. My picture is not the best but the quilt is so big and hard for one person to hold up. Does not help that my house is small! Oh and the one peeking out is my youngest son, Peter! Cute isn't he?

February 8, 2006

Time sure does fly! I started a spanish class online and have been spending alot of time learning to speak in spanish. I am hoping that it will help me to communicate better when I am down there this summer on my mission trip. I know I will be able to read and listen to spanish but actually being able to communicate my thoughts is questionable. You really have to think quickly to be able to do that.

I have been working on some UFO's the last week. One is over a year old. I added borders and then quilted it. I am still hand sewing down the binding. I found the perfect backing fabric for it. The quilt is red/black/white. My husband likes it so I will be keeping this one. The other one is my NYE mystery quilt from just a month ago. I wanted to finish that one and use it on my bed. We bought a brand new bed this last weekend and so far it has been very comfortable. Our bed was only 5 years old but was really worn out. It is possible it would have been under warranty but we did not save the receipt so could not look into it.

Matt and his girlfriend were over last night picking up my old computer. They stayed for supper. It was really nice. It is amazing how his attitutude has changed drastically having a girlfriend! He actually told me he loved me as he was leaving! This is quite an improvement. My husband informed me that he is actually calling me Mom now instead of "your wife". Raising kids is sure tough work!
