Wow I suck at blogging!

Seeing as how it's been over three months since I posted last and my backdrop was christmas themed until today. I think I can officially say I'm bad at blogging. Anyway, I guess I'll just give a little overview of what's happened recently. We're still in upstate New York and it's still cold. That much hasn't changed, but if all goes well, we'll be out of here in May and on to somewhere else (we're not sure where anymore!). I was able to take a trip to CA about a month ago and got to see my family, which was pretty wonderful. I miss everyone a lot and it's hard being so far away, especially from all the kids. Since I've been home I've been working on some sewing projects. It finally clicked that I could bring my sewing machine back to NY with me from CA, so that's what I did this last trip. It's been keeping me pretty busy and helping the winter to go by a bit quicker.
Fortunately Nathan and I have started to develop a little bit more of a social life. Last week we went to a Jimmy Eat World concert in NYC, Karaoke at a local bar, which I'm sure you can imagine was fun, but painful and I even got a chance to go skiing. I was a little bit nervous because I haven't been since high school, but thanks to my brother Jake being such a good teacher, I still remembered how and didn't have any trouble keeping up with the guys. All in all, things are going pretty well. We're having a great time being married, even if the circumstances aren't always ideal!

At the Jimmy Eat World concert. Not the cutest we've ever looked, but it's the only one we got.

My first completed quilt top.

The aprons I'm making for my YW that I copied from Jody and Jenny.

My first attempt at machine quilting. Thanks Jen Jen for the mini class in CA!!!
