An Update and a Resolution

Happy 2014 everyone!!! I hope 2013 was a good one for all of you! For me it was full of ups and downs, but mostly ups which is a good thing. Many of you may or may not know, I moved in 2013 all the way across the country to Utah! As a result I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging to focus on my life and to get everything back to normal. Well 2 months later we're back to semi-normal and with the New Year I thought I would make a resolution and sort of promise to get back to blogging. Not only for all of you out there still interested in my crafty shenanigans, but for me. I enjoy blogging and hopefully will be doing more of it soon!

So where to begin.....Well we made it! Home sweet home. Moving is definitely not fun, but when its to your first house its kind of super exciting. I finally have a place I can call my own and I don't need to be rich to enjoy the amazing views! Its funny though. If you would have asked me a year ago if I thought I would be in Utah now I would have thought you were crazy. Utah was definitely not on the radar, but after visiting a few times we kind of fell in love. Such a change from New Jersey.

The house is slowly coming together. The first week we were here there was a lot of spending :/ New couch, new mattress, a washer and dryer, etc. We still don't have a dining room table, but its fine because the space is great for quilty projects! :D

Don't judge.

 Speaking of crafty spaces I finally have one!!! My very own sewing room!!! Its super messy and disorganized right now, but hopefully I can get it together soon and make it my own little sanctuary. For now I make due with the rest of the house though. And I kind of find it more enjoyable as I can sew and hang out with my honey while he watches TV.

Guess its just as messy!

 During Christmas I was very busy! I actually found time to make a tree skirt, finish a WIP from 2013, make family and friends little ornaments and gifts, and even start another project. I'm still working on binding my monstrous Swoon quilt and dreading quilting my Spanish Tiles quilt. But I cant wait to add more to the pile! I love that I can finally have the quilts out and in use! Makes it even more homey!


Ignore the laundry basket.

I'll leave you with my latest finish, its a quilt for the newest soon to be member of my boyfriend's family. His niece is having a baby in April so I figure I would get a jump on it! So here's to a productive and bloggy New Year!!! May you all have a happy, healthy and productive 2014!!!!


  1. Happy to "see" you are blogging again!

  2. I have to say that I LOVE the way you sashed that Aviary quilt. Just gorgeous!

  3. how fun to be settled finally! and your own sewing space, too. that's just about as good as the views. =)

    that new baby quilt is sugar sweet!
