Little Chevron Zig Zag Quilt

My little guy turned 3 months old yesterday and I finished his little quilt the day prior, so I'll have to pat myself on the back and say "Not too bad!" We have been pretty busy getting into a routine and figuring out the whole first baby thing, so I'm just happy to have it done before his first birthday! Here is the little quilt:
I have a big quilt in the works too that I need to finish and have quilted before we move. All the blocks are done. I just need to sew them together and add some borders! I WILL get it done. Today has been a bit boring because we are locked in due to Typhoon Bolaven. I took the opportunity to make myself a cross body bag.
I haven't made myself a bag in awhile and I wanted to try this one out, so yippee for me, I have a new bag. I even put 5 pockets slip on the inside and a zipper closure! I like the cross body bag because it allows me to have my hands free, which I'm finding is important for keeping up with my Little Guy. Well, that's all for today. I'm slightly inspired to make some more bags. Hmmm...how long do you think baby will sleep?

Little Things

I have been working in my sewing room a little bit more now that the baby and I are finding a bit of a schedule and he is eating less often. He still seems to eat more than anything else, but what can you expect from a growing little boy! I can hardly believe he will be 3 months tomorrow. I'm enjoying being a part of every milestone and experience. I made a couple little personalized pacifier clips today. One is for my little guy and the other is for my friend's little boy. They were born exactly 1 month apart. I can't wait to get back to the states for our little boys to meet.
I also finished a small quilt for my little guy. I will have to get a picture and post it soon. So for now, I will continue to enjoy the little things with my little guy.

Where to Start?

Seriously! What have I been up to?!?...oh maybe just some life changing stuff - like having a baby. I'm so excited to have welcomed my first child in May. My husband and I are enjoying every moment. We have also had many family visitors, which has been nice to have some extra hands as we get into the 'swing' of all the things that go along with having a baby. I have been working on military bags and have several projects in the works. Here are some of the creations. They were all orders for some amazing people. I loved creating them.
I would like to say that I will blog more, but reality is that I love spending my time with my little baby and I forget about my blog. I will honestly try though to update more often.
