Word Vomit

Whew, what a year this has been.

Yesterday marked the end of my last semester for my undergraduate degree. *big deep breath out* I actually turned in my last final on Friday and I felt so emotional! It has taken me a long time to get this degree and I am just thrilled. I didn’t think I would be as emotional as I was, I cried moments after turning the paper in. My official graduation date is at the end of August, finally.

I finished the baby quilt I posted previously! This is a pattern from the Little Bits Quilting Bee book and is so easy. I pieced the back using leftover fabric, including the triangles that, if I followed the pattern, would have made a border. I quilted echo lines around the chevrons. The quilting is my favorite part about this one, the baby’s room’s decor is grey and white and chevrons. I thought oh I’m just going to quilt lines echoing the design – instant chevrons!

Forgive the blurry pic, my son jumped behind the quilt and moved it while I was taking a picture.

We have had many people visit us so we are frequent aquarium visitors. The kids favorite thing to do is pretend to be a sea anemone.

I recently got a bike and we have been trying to ride daily, or at least several times a week. Riding a bike is a calorie burner! I love it. My husband is thinking he may be able to commute by bike at his next job, so we are researching extras like bags and a different stroller to pull the baby in.

I thought I would have so much free time now that my semester is over, but I spent today running errands and on the phone. I am getting a lot done though. I won’t be riding bike this evening, but the rest of the week I will be able to! I am now on a prepare to move (again), figure out what to put in storage, sew, sew, sew mission.

    Congrats on the Degree! Traveling by bike in Europe is so much better than car in some towns the cars barely fit down the streets 🙂
