Quilt Anxiety, Braids, Framed...

I am making a quilt!!
Oh now don't go getting all excited...
it is not very fancy...
just a simple patchwork one...
but the fabric!!!
Oh the fabric!!
I have saved up from my Etsy store
to buy these!
I just stare at them...
and pet them.
Yesterday I did all the cutting.
Just the cutting was enough for one day for me.
My anxiety from worrying if I was going to mess up the cuts was an 8...
maybe a 8.5.
I needed some wine after this.
I am super excited for this quilt!
Allikaye is getting her professional pics done in a month...
by the same amazing photographer that took
her 1 year, 2 year, and now 3 year pics!!
And I am hoping to have a quilt...
my quilt (!)...
in the pictures!

Here is another exciting thing over here...
Allikaye watched Rapunzel and then asked me
to do her hair in a braid!
I was so. on. it!
She never lets me doll her up!
I told her to peek up at me in this picture...
oh she makes me swoon!
So pretty!

Okay - here's another little project I done did.
Yeah, I just said that.
I had a Keep Me Calm poster since February...
and I have been searching for the perfect frame.
Thank you Goodwill for...
this gold beauty!

It was a mirror...very gold!

Here it is after some white paint...
e.x.a.c.t.l.y what I envisioned!

Here is another of my braided beauty!
I have to put this picture in here.
I need to remember this time in Allikaye's life.
She makes me laugh! Laugh! Laugh!

She is very particular about what she wears.
Right now we are going on week 3 of
only dresses.
It's the first thing she says when she wakes up,
"Mom, can I get dressed? I only wear dresses."

And the dresses typically change
the day.

I never know what I am going to see when I
go in after quiet time.

blue dress...
and pink headband...
oh and the braids...
mama loves the braids.

Quilting and braiding
in Colorado.

We out.

Brings me back to the days when you used to practice braiding my hair in college! Who knew one day you would have a beautiful daughter and get to braid her hair?! Also, L.O.V.E. the quilt fabric, can't wait to see the finished project!

Ashley, I was just peeking at your blog (I do this time to time mostly after I'm visiting Rhonda's blog).I must say I am infatuated with that quilt! The fabric is awesome! If I ever have a little girl I'm paying you to make my nursery bedding. A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!!! (This is Shannon from Boise..Rhonda's friend)
