Business Cards

We've all seen the commercials for Vistaprint.com 

Right now they have a special where you can get 250 business cards for $10 (including shipping!).  So guess who has two thumbs and just ordered some business cards?  This guy!!

It was incredibly easy to do.  Especially since I already had my design all drawn up in Photoshop from creating my labels.

The only hard part was resisting buying all of the other marketing accessories...pens, visors, car magnets, etc. etc.  While it was cool to see my logo on those items in the print preview, I have to be realistic that where I am right now in the stages of my "business", the cards are really all I need right now.

7th inning stretch

I did it!!

It's been almost two months since I first pieced together Thing 1's baseball tshirt quilt, but I finally finished it.

I decided to take a summer class this year, and seeing how I haven't taken a class since my May 2005 graduation, I have felt a little overwhelmed and haven't had much free time to work on my sewing.

But this week I got ahead on my work for my class, and decided to reward myself by busting out the sewing machine.

And the result is one super-sized twin quilt (it is long enough on the sides that I won't be needing bedskirts) in a baseball theme.

I hope it's not another two months before I have the time to finish Thing 2's quilt.

Baby Quilt

If you have some spare time and a half dozen fat quarters laying around, you can make my new favorite baby quilt (Fat Quarter Baby Quilt Tutorial) like the one I made for a beautiful new little girl...

If you make one, you should add a picture of it to their Flickr group.

Also, because the baby girl was born to one of my sorority sisters, I couldn't help but take the opportunity to make this darling onesie to match her quilt.

Update: Here is a picture of baby Avery wearing her XO letters (with my two lovely sorority sisters!).
