Here’s the deal with quilting lately: I’ve been doing a lot of it, but I haven’t been able to share. I realized just now that I never posted the finished Rainbow Strip Quilt, which I finished back in April (I think). So now that’s going on the To Do list.

But I’ve also been working on 3 other quilts I haven’t shared; two are top secret projects to be revealed later this year/early next year (in print!!!!), and the third is a wedding quilt for one of my very best friends, Miss Maggie.

It was time to take a little break from the Rainbow Strip Quilt, which is currently in limbo while I wait for the new quilt labels I designed and ordered from Spoonflower. My sewing machine has been growing dust lately while I finish my web design course and get ready for someone’s second birthday.

My birthday got off to a rocky start this year, but in the end it became a month of celebrations. After being sick on the day of I was pretty down about the whole prospect of birthdays and endless winter.

But it definitely had its shining moments.

We’re exhausted and happy here after a great Christmas. Here’s Hannah’s reaction to the elephant rocker her grandparents gave her for Christmas. Awesome little creature.

So it’s been a little more than 2 weeks since work ended, and I’m (hopefully) starting to hit a stride. Hannah went through almost a solid month of nonstop teething right around the end of the school year, which just turned things upside down a little. Plus I started writing in earnest for GeekMom and trying to keep up with my posts. The house has been in a state while I finished up the job, so…in general it’s been a little chaotic around here since, oh…mid March.

“Hannah” outdid herself this year (Adam took this photo).

I never posted about Father’s Day, which was very low key. Adam caught up on hours of video games, did some DIY stuff, and requested Chicken Paprikash for dinner. But I’m pretty thrilled with his gift, this monogrammed steak branding iron from The Prairie Forge in Wyoming. I played phone tag for a few days to place my order (there is no online ordering at this working ranch and iron forge), and Cate could not have been sweeter. They had this brand and the accompanying branded board to me within two weeks.

I finally finished this quilt! It’s a horribly belated first birthday present, but I love this quilt to pieces. I hope Hannah loves it, too.

So I turned 34 on February 10th. Quite a different year from last year. And there was quite a lot of celebrating this year. I had a great one!

My birthday weekend started with a big snow storm on Saturday the 9th. So we had a great time playing in the snow with Hannah and trying out her new baby sled.

So I’ve started my first quilt of 2013. And I have to keep it a mystery because it’s a present for someone. But I’m using my stash of Tula Pink’s Parisville for it.
