Busy Weekend


Well, another busy weekend over with in a flash. Yesterday, we finished up the last of our Christmas shopping and ran errands all day. We still have things for the kids left to get, but since they are usually quite snoopy, we won't buy for them until the last possible second!
Today we were up early. I did one of the "Firm" video aerobics workouts for 50 minutes plus warmup/cooldown (Man! my butt and legs are killing me now from that!) followed by 30 minutes on the stationary bike. Then we were off again. We went to the fabric store to pick out fabric for a baby quilt and a few other miscellaneous errands. While we were out, we realized that we should make another trip. Tomorrow my sister is having her baby- for Christmas we bought them a 1G memory stick for their camera. It dawned on us that that would probably be best used by them for their trip to the hospital tomorrow so they can take more than 8 pictures, so we brought them their present early.
I spent the afternoon making baby Izzy's quilt. The picture above is the finished product and it turned out really nice. The front is dark denim with pink embroidered flowers and the back is white flannel with flowers, butterflies, and Eiffel towers (since her middle name is Renee). The trim is white eyelet lace with butterflies embroidered on it, really pretty. Not sure if you can see all the detail in the pictures. It is also her Christmas present, but I am giving it to her early too.

great idea! Be sure to post a finished product - I'd love to see how he puts it together and get ideas for my own!

Wow you guys are busy with happy things!

I am so jealous that you're done Christmas shopping. We have not started.

Best wishes for your sister and their growing family. :)
