200th Post

This is my 200th post! I am very excited that I have made it this far, sounds kinda weird, but I have never claimed to be normal.

I have been very busy this weekend, and have been working really hard! But one thing that I am very proud of is that I have finished Crazy Mom Quilt's sample quilt along. I made this quilt for my mom. She sent me some fabric and told me to go to town. I think she will really like this quilt.

I took down our prayer rug that Travis's brother brought back from Afghanistan, and hung the quilt. It is really cold outside otherwise I would have gone outside.
The back of the quilt. I thought I had more of the green material but I didn't and I had to improvise. I wish I had made the back more interesting.

Then I was looking at the many blogs that I like, and found some cute and easy crocheting pieces. Over at the Royal Sisters they have some really cute projects. So I decided to make some. I even made them for our Christmas ordaments this year.
(I have to improvise when it comes to hanging the stockings since I don't have a ledge to hang them from)

The pretty Christmas tree

The pretty Star

Then I of course had a little helper helping me this morning. Although when I took his picture he posed a frown!

I guess he is a typical two year old. He isn't usually this grouchy.

Then for the last bit, I received my prize from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway earlier this month. I am not sure what I am going to make with it, but I am really excited to try. Thank you again Anne, from FilmandThread.
