Home Sweet Home

We are back in the Pacific Northwest and I have to agree with everyone else…there is just no place like home. I did come to realize that a  king size bed is EXTRA large when sleeping in it alone. I have done it a few times throughout the past year, really unavoidable when your spouse is in the military, but for months on end is a whole other story!

Anne was so excited to be home, she immediately ran to her downstairs toy box and yelled “look at all my new toys!” The best thing is that they are all the toys she has always had except she hasn’t seen them in 5 weeks! LOL

Yesterday I unpacked all the sewing stuff that I brought down to CA with and I started reading the pattern and laying out all of the fabric to make a new handbag. I am participating in Purse Palooza over at Sew Sweetness. I will be doing my pattern review on the very last day.  Make sure you go check it out, there are prizes to be won every single day and if you make a purse this month that is one more chance to win! I will start sewing it together today.

While I was gone I received lot’s of squishy packages!  May was my month for Sew Bee Blissful and the blocks have started to roll in. Here are the one’s I have received so far:

They are all Firefly blocks. My bee mates followed my tutorial from back in January. This is going to be a quilt for my hubs when he comes back from Afghanistan. What do you think? Manly enough so far?  I have a lot more fabric and will hopefully end up with a lot more blocks!

What have you been up to this past weekend?
