What I've been up to...w/ pics!

So I have been working on making gifts for people....birthday gifts and Christmas gifts! =)
I have made a fantastic purse!! I will be putting up a tutorial for this one soon b/c I absolutely DESPISE patterns...and I had to do this one off of a pattern. I am amazed that I was able to actually do it! But now that I have I want to write it out in tutorial form for future reference. Here's the purse!

Here is the next block in the cafemom round robin....I added the turquoise and purpl-ish 4-patch border....I must admit that I copied this idea from my BF Lisa... is MY finished round robin wall hanging!! I LOVE it! I received it the other day...earlier than expected. The last person in my group added fabric from my original block as well as from the 2nd person's addition! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

Here are some aprons I have made....i LOVE making these!!

And here's Jacob! He loves fabric almost as much as I do =)

And here is a picture of Ronnie and Kyle...

And I have to include a couple of sunset pictures...they're too amazing to pass up. This one was from two nights ago. On the RARE occasion that we have clouds here in Nevada it makes for a spectacular sunset.
