This and that...

I have all of my graduation tassels hanging from my printer feed tray, I was looking at them the other day and realized that since I graduated from High School I have graduated every two years!
High School in 2002, Junior College in 2004, and Cal Poly (just barely, December Graduation) in 2006... I guess I am a high achiever??

My Family came out to visit last weekend, bringing with them my aunt Jill from MN, who wasn't able to make it out for the wedding, so she had to meet Kyle and "approve". :0)

It was foggy out in the bay, but nice and sunny in Avila...

My Aunt Jill. She didn't know I was taking this picture. She probably wouldn't approve... :0)

My Mom (Kim), Dad (Steve), and Aunt Jill

I have been popping into Beverly's Fabric every couple of weeks and looking in their 50% off bins and have found quite a few fabrics that I really like and that go together so that I can eventually make a quilt. I buy 2 yards of the fabrics I like, so I am sure to have plenty!! I have never done this before (made a quilt), so we will see how dedicated I stay and how it turns out... :0) Thought I would share the fabrics with you.

I actually have fabrics that don't go well together, so I will make two quilts eventually.... First colors

I Love the Little Bumble Bees on this one!!! and the color is fairly acurate.

This one looks very orange, it is actually a nice picnic blanket red and white.

The yellow is off a bit in this one, but you can see the checkered details.

Next Quilt fabrics...

Color is pretty accurate, a light pink, I have a lot of this, it was a hand-me down.

The color is off, it is a nice pink, with some white, with little red flowers.

A cute pink check, it was always off when I took the picture closer, so it is from a distance. Sorry.

A cute medium blue with pink, yellow, blue flowers.

I love this one!! it has little dragonflies all over it! it is actually a pair of pajama pants that I found and have wanted to use for while! the color seems pretty accurate.

So that's my fabric. Maybe I will actually make it into something... :0)
