a little quilt

Originally uploaded by kristinemhanson
I have a friend who will be having a boy next week, I could not make it to her shower but I was able to whip this up for her and her little guy Elliott. Such a fun little project, I even like the lines I quilted on the top, I was too scared to stipple it, I am horrible at stippling! Go here for the tutorial. :)

mugs or jugs?

Jugs of milk people, LOL!! I joined the "scrappy mug rug swap" on flickr for this current round, go over and take a peak at the photo stream of mug rugs, wow...there are some darling little quilties out there. My partner wanted a non-Christmas/winter themed rug and in a rainbow of colors....My original plan did not have it this large but.....if you are really thirsty you could put your jug of milk on this little one, and some left over Halloween candy, he he he. (never mind the empty mug, I can't drink milk, this was just for the photo op, if this was for me it would be filled with diet coke).
Here it is all by its little ol' self, I think it turned out pretty cute.

Halloween 2010

A few pictures of my "trick or treaters" from Sunday.
Little Em showing some "cattidude"


This was the 3rd year in a row that we trick-or-treated with my brother, sister-in-law and niece (above as a witch). My brother lives two blocks from my parents so we are trick-or-treating the same neighborhood we grew up in.

This is my dad, answering the door at the house I grew up in, TRICK OR TREAT!
