Crystal's pregnant!!!

I know we don't post on here very much but figure there are still some people that follow it...

We found out today that its going to be a girl!

So we've eliminated our top choices of Truman and Tebow. But Princess Beyonce White Ivy Jensen has moved to the top of the list.

We'll post pictures once she's born. Due date is June 24th 2012.

Me: "Did you have a good spring break"

A: "Yeah I guess. I had to kill 4 chickens."
Me: "Ok."
A: "And then feed their blood to my dogs. If you mix it with salt water it coagulates into a gelatinous substance."
Me: "Interesting."
A: "Yeah, any time my mom wants organic chicken she makes me kill them."

for the craft overload. I just dumped the card on my camera.


These are horrible pictures. I might go show up at Mindy's house and demand a re-shoot. That backgroud fabric is supposed to be white, not sickly yellow.

Flowers are machine appliqued, then hand quilted around in brown thread. In between fabric flowers, other smaller flower motifs are hand quilted in white thread.

Tried to get a good picture of the back to show the hand quilting, but apparently couldn't hold still.

Custom order for a friend of a friend's sister's wedding. Finished at 4ft. by 5ft.

Cages are hand embroidered with floss. Birds are machine applique'd. Machine quilted with swirls all over, except I traced around each bird and around each cage.

Back looks lumpier in these pictures than it does in real life.

I hope Julie and Aaron like it!

A Christmas present for my Sister-in-Law Marsie. I free motion quilted the peony onto the brown with pink and white thread, then sashed and stuffed.

For a fellow math teacher's new baby, Brandon.
