This week some of my most favorite people in the world came to visit. Jess, Cory, Joe, Dad, Josh, Brent and Allie. It was a kick ass time.

Mostly we sat around and watched the dogs play. Jess and Cory brought Baby Eden.

She had a lot of fun chasing the soccer ball while the boys kicked it around.

Eden discovered that its really easy to dig big holes in sand.

Sometimes, Hazel got caught in the sand spray.

We also ate some good food.

We are exhausted but so sad that everyone had to go home.

Dear Jane Fabric

I finally have all the fabric gathered together for my Dear Jane quilt. I joined Anina’s quilt-a-long a couple of weeks ago and have been trying to get everything together ever since. I went to three different quilt shops here in Orlando looking for that light gray fabric but nobody had any. Most of the ladies looked at me like I was crazy for wanting gray quilt fabric to begin with. I ended up ordering some online even though I was worried about the color clashing with the charcoal fabric I bought in town. I think it’s going to be okay though.

I’m really frustrated because I still haven’t received my Dear Jane book. I’m eager to get started. I ended up ordering it from a seller on amazon. I ordered Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match at the same time and it came in the mail over a week ago! Now it looks like even it I get the book in the mail tomorrow I won’t be able to start for another week because I have a ton of company coming into town next week. My dad, lil brother, Allie, Jess, Cory, Joe and possibly Brent. It’s been a long time since any of them have been down to visit so we are super stoked. Dear Jane will definitely have to wait our house is gonna be so full.
