I received some exciting mail the other day- my winnings from Handmade by Alissa's 1 year anniversary giveaway!  :)  I am sure I be able to put this beautiful fabric to good use!

As I mentioned in my last post, I got a new lens for my camera.  The 50mm f/1.8 to be exact.  My parents were gracious enough to give it to me as a birthday present.  Thanks Mom and Dad! :) 

When I was at my cousin's son's birthday party last weekend, I was able to play with it and try it out.  It is pretty awesome.

The colors in these shots of the flowers is really rich.

Cute kids to photograph make it easy to look like a good photographer!

I'm pretty pleased!  The photos are better quality on flickr.  For some reason Blogger has been making my photos look a bit funky.

I love this new quilt top.  I love that I made it using my new sewing machine.  I love the new sewing machine!  I love that I took this photo using my new camera lens

The quilt top was made using 2 charm packs from the Arcadia line by Moda and Kona Cotton solids in Sable and Snow.

Quarter Century

Today I turn 25.  Earlier this week, a friend told me 25 was her best year yet.  It looks like I have a lot to look forward to this coming year!  :)
