A sneak peek and some pictures from Katrina

I've had so much going on this semester that I almost completely forgot about the blog.
Mom came down this week to go to a doctor's appointment with me.  While she was here, she was working on the new Civil War block of the month, so we decided to post a preview for you :)

Just for fun, I thought some of you might enjoy seeing how my roommates and I decorated our house for Christmas:

The palm tree is from me, and the wedding arch and ornaments are from one of my roommates (she's getting married, hence the wedding arch).  I have a light-up palm tree because my roommate from freshman year is letting me borrow it from her because I keep telling her how much I miss it :)

Also, I discovered the other day that the macro setting on my camera will let me take pictures of snowflakes!

...and now I really need to spend the rest of today studying.  I have four finals next week.

I'm back!

Where am I back from?  Just an absence from the blog!  I've been at the store re-arranging the fixtures and aisles, ordering new fabrics and fun notions while getting my Block of the Month projects done.  Hopefully today is the beginning of regular updates to the blog.

Perfect Fit

Mom brought a new sewing table home yesterday, and we had to get it upstairs and into the sewing room.  We were a little concerned that we wouldn't be able to get it in without moving the cabinet full of fabric, but it wound up just barely fitting in.  

Now that is what you call a perfect fit!
