Happy Belated Birthday to me!

I never posted about my Birthday because I have been having too much fun with my presents form Nate and Mom! I'll talk more about that later :) So for my 23rd B-day Nate Let me spend several hours doing stuff I never get to do like straightening my hair and giving myself a pedicure and getting all gussied up! He took me out and we had a very good time! Here is a pic we took when we got home.

Here I am opening my presents. Yes, Nate did wrap my present in the quilt mom made us! It was the prettiest thing he could find!

So what did I get? And What I have I done with it? So glad you asked...
I got a Sewing Machine from Nate and every little accessory you can think of from Mom and Dad, the cutest of which is this adorable pin cushion that Mom made! I should of taken a picture without the little yellow pins, it's much cuter without them. The next picture is the curtains I made for the boys room. The next picture is the cradle bedding I made before I had the sewing machine and I did it all by hand. I never finished the bag I wanted to make to hang over the side so I finished it! Now when the baby wakes up at night I will have everything I need right there and It looks cute! The last one is a search and find bean bag and I plan on making more for friends who are having babies. I really love sewing! My next project is going to be slip covers for these chairs! Wish me luck! And if you have any tips before I start feel free to comment.

All my kids love the search and find bag you made for Aaron. And I wish I had a new sewing machine. Mine is an old piece of junk (I don't think it even has a brand name on it anywhere), so I don't sew much because I'm worried about things falling apart after I spend all my time making them. =(
