Dudes. I feel like I've been so crazy busy. But I don't know what I've been doing. Working a lot... My little baby sister is here visiting... Cleaning... Etc...
And finally, here is the quilt I finished a week or so ago. It's the Easy Lap Quilt from Amy's Bend-the-Rules, again. I can't tell you how unbelievably EASY this quilt was!! I was so scared. Because, you know...quilting? But this one is super easy and I even figured out how to do a blind hem for the binding and I must say, it looks extremely awesome and professional. I totally rocked the binding.
This one is for a certain little girl who may or may not be born on my birthday in September. I'm now working on another one for a certain brother who is getting married next month. None of that was very cryptic, so act surprised!
Okay. My brain is like. Not with it. I'm out.
P.S. The quilt is supposed to look wonky like that. All wrinkly and crazy-like. It's part of its charm.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

The baby is asleep, I'm done with work, and I'm exhausted. Yet here I sit. Still in front of the computer. Wasting valuable sleeping time. Why? To do this silliness...
A is for Age: 26
B is for Burger of choice: Um...I don't really eat burgers ever. I guess I'd say an In-n-Out Cheeseburger?
C is for what kind of car you drive: 2003 Toyota Corolla. And John's 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
C is also for your favorite past vehicle: I've never had a past vehicle. I guess I'll say John's 1998 Camry.
D is for your dogs name: I have no dog. We had a crazy Black Lab when I was growing up named Corky. And my uncle's Beagle, Christie, lived with us. Now my mom has a Bassett Hound named Bella. I haven't met her yet.
E is for essential item you use every day: My contacts. Or toothbrush.
F is for favorite TV show at the moment: Project Runway starts next week I think, so I'm stoked for that. I also just really enjoyed Top Chef.

H is for Home state: Utah
I is for instruments you play: I used to be fairly ok at piano. I also played violin in elementary school. And percussion in middle school.

K is for whose butt you'd like to kick: Uh...no one? A sibling or two?
L is for last restaurant at which you ate: I think Eggs 'n Things (worst name EVER!!).
M is for your favorite Muppet: Can't say I have one. The Yip-Yips?
N is for number of piercings: One in each ear.
O is for overnight hospital stays: I think two nights? Maybe 3? I can't remember. The first night was the night William was born. And I can't remember if we had to stay one night or two nights while he was in the Bili-Chamber. All I know is that it was WAY too long.
P is for people you were with today: William, Hannah and Ruby. John a little bit.

I'm going to tag Ruth (because she never posts on her blog), Morgan Jane (cause she hasn't for awhile either), and Christen.
I have a finished quilt to show you tomorrow! I'm so stoked on it!
