Happy Sunday!

Good morning! Baby Elijah (I know, 19 months doesn't really qualify as baby) was up bright and early at 6:30AM. After a little bit of rocking, he was ready to go back to sleep. I, on the other hand, was wide awake. So what did I do? I spent some time quilting, of course!

Christmas quilt #1 is coming along very well. I spent Friday's naptime piecing the backing, layering, basting, and quilting. An awesome green sheet from Ikea along with a pieced row of Katie Jump Rope is the backing, and I decide to shadow quilt this one. Now I just have to pick out the binding.

We had a wonderful day yesterday. It was the last day of the local country fair, so spent the morning at the parade and the evening eating yummy fair food. A couple shots from the parade...

I'll be back this afternoon with the giveaway winner!
