Nom nom nom nom

 So, we went to Coraline's cousin's second birthday party a few weeks ago.  And we both had a great time except she realized she couldn't eat the cake or the hot dogs or swim in the pool, so she decided to take matters into her own hands-- by eating her own dress. . . the entire time we were there (despite the fact that she had toys).  

Here she is with her great-grandmother.  Maw-maw thought it was pretty funny too.

Sock Monkey Quilt

This quilt was a long time coming!  I had made the top months and months ago but never got around to quilting it until this month.  I love the fabric.  It's the Goodnight Monkey fabric by Erin Michael for Moda.  The "jersey knit" fabric is the most fun fabric- looks just like a knitted piece of material.

free hand quilted

love the contrast of the binding

I've posted it on Etsy, but this may be a good quilt (or at least inspiration) for a certain cousin of mine who is due any day!

Like making bread?

Then you must get this book-- Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day.  Every thing I have ever made out of this book turns out fabulous and delicious.  The best part is there is no kneading or proofing involved.  It's so simple!  And you always have some dough left over to refrigerate or freeze for later.

We made french toast out of this Challah loaf- delicious!

She's talking

Coraline has just started "talking" to her toys.  For some reason, I find it hilarious.
