Camryns birthday blanket

 I have wanted to make a blanket for Camryn for a while and decided that her birthday was a great time to make one. I didn't know if I would finish it in time but I did!!
 I went to Hobby Lobby with my good friend Andrea. I really love that the fabric we picked out.

All the fabric cut into squares, just ready to be sewn together in rows.

All the squares sewn together in rows, now the rows need to be sewn together.

The finished blanket!! I really love how it turned out. I really want to make more now. Thanks to my mom and Andrea for letting me use their sewing machines!
I can't wait to get my own machine! There are so many things that I want to make.

Just another day...

I am super excited for the weekend!! This has been the longest week! With it getting warmer outside it just makes it that much better. Today we have a double header in soccer. I am just hoping that all our players actually show up. 80 minutes of straight soccer might kill me! I have just been cleaning, doing laundry and relaxing until the games start. Camryn is taking a nap, Braeden is on his way home from work and I'm bummin it :)
Update on Camryns birthday blanket. I have cut all the squares, sewn them together in rows, now all I need to do is sew the rows together and then sew around the outside. I am really excited for it to be done. It has turned out really well!! I am looking for a sewing machine if anyone knows of a good deal on one. I have been using my friends to make it so far but I would love to have one of my own! Braeden said that when we get our own house that he will build me a craft room and craft table :) I am so excited for it!!
