Quilting Friday Five and Show and Tell Friday

I'm really late today. We still have company!

1. Do you notice yourself choosing light, medium, or darker tones the most? I'm a jeweled tone person. I love bright colours, but particularly those jewel tones like amethyst, emerald, sapphire, etc.

2. Which specific color group do you tend to gravitate towards? Purple and green!

3. What colors/themes/genres fabrics do you consider >"outside your comfort zone"? Pinks (not so much mixed, but ALL pink pinks) and very cheap fabrics.

4. Do you notice, over time, your color choices change? Mmmm...I mean, I branch out from time to time, but I still love purple and green!

5. Do you ever purchase fabric out side your comfort zone? When I make for other people, yes.

And now, Show and Tell Friday! Kelli hosts it, so head over to participate! Sorry for being late!

One Year

It's so hard to believe that it has been a full year since Matthew was brought into this world. Yesterday, we celebrated his birthday. In the evening, we went out to dinner and then had cake and ice cream afterwards. Unfortunately, things were so crazy these last couple of weeks, we wound up forgetting to buy cake mix and had to get a ready made cake from Kroger. Still, it was something. They were out of number 1 candles, though. :(

He's growing up so fast. My baby boy isn't much of a baby anymore. He's walking, saying a couple of words, and soon he won't look like a baby anymore. Children just grow up too fast. I mean, there are many times that Kurt and I have wished more time would pass more quickly, but really...it passes too quickly as it is. It's so hard to remember my children as babies. As frustrating as certain stages can be, I'm glad time doesn't go any faster than it does.

I wish I could have updated this on his birthday, but...no time. Ah well.

We were supposed to go to the Zoo today. A year ago tomorrow, I purchased a zoo membership. Not long after that, I started having complications with my pregnancy, so was put on restrictions. No zoo. Then Matthew was born. With me pumping, I couldn't really go anywhere like that easily. So, no zoo again. Finally, the six months was up. Kurt was going to take today off and take me to the zoo as my birthday celebration since he'll be at a conference on my actual birthday. So what happens? The children and I all come down with colds. Even if it isn't very severe, I don't want to exert myself, and especially not the children, just to make it worse. So, we're home and Kurt went to work. No zoo. *sigh*

He's going to take off Wednesday, but I doubt we'll be over the colds by then. Wednesday is Workout Wednesday at a quilt shop in the city a few miles below us. I'll be going down there to work on these quilts. It's a nice open space so I don't have to get too close to people.

Still, it's no zoo.


In other, better news, Matthew is trying to stand. I don't know mean just pulling himself up, I mean pulling himself up and letting go and wobbling for a couple of seconds in a standing position before falling down. Impatient? :)

It's a small world after all...

This morning, we attended church like normal. After church, Kurt and I met a man by the name of Charlie Moore. Whatmade this meeting interesting was that he grew up in Decatur, Georgia, my home town. Even more interesting was the fact that he attended and graduated from Towers High School; my high school! Needless to say, this already small world has gotten a LOT smaller!

In bigger news, today was Kat's first birthday. It's so hard to believe that she was born one year ago. Having a child is definitely a challenge, but oh so much blessing! I can't imagine life without her and there are no words that can accurately express how much I love her. Happy birthday, my little Kit Kat!
