Baby Bird Mobile

Another bird mobile custom order.

This little one had the best time playing with the birds.

She was so curious.

I just realized that I never posted anything about the past quilts I've made. So, here we go.

First two quilts ever: A baby quilt for my friend Danita and her twin boys, Wyatt and Cameron. Now when I made these I didn't know if they were going to be boys or girls.

I ended up making her another one (which I apparently didn't take any pictures of) and sold the floral one.

Then I made one for my brother-in-law, Kenny. He is a huge fan of Led Zeppelin.

The front of it is all recycled fabrics: black denim jeans, fleece vest, corduroy pants, satin skirt, leather skirt, t-shirt. I used pieces of the fabrics that had pockets in it. So, the fleece zipped pockets and the back pockets of the demin and corduroy pants are also used.

I also made him some pillows from a pair of t-shirts.

I'm in Ready-Made

I mentioned a few blogs ago that I was going to be in an issue of ready-made. Well folks, it has arrived.

Thanks Ready-Made!

Austin City Limits Festival 2008

This is the little bit of ACL that I got to experience. I was only there on Friday but it was enough for me. I got to meet a few people. I got to see a few shows. And I got really dirty.
Here is ACL through my eyes.

First I worked for a few hours at the Waterloo Records tent.

I met Jamie Lidell.

I met Donavon Frankenreiter.

And I met Patty Griffin.

Then I hoofed it over to watch G Love and Special Sauce. Turns out Donavon Frankenreiter is a fan. He came out and watched a few songs.

Most of the good pics I got of G Love were pictures of the jumbo screen. I was just too far away to get good ones otherwise.

Then I walked over to watch Donavon Frankenreiter.

This is how much dirt was flying around. I think most of it landed on my feet. I was filthy by the time I left.

All in all, beer was consumed and good times were had.

Screech! Smack! Bang!

Today after work, I came home and picked up Bobby to go to the grocery store. We stopped at Sonic on our way to get some dinner. After we ate, we started to pull out across traffic to take a left and BANG! CRASH! SCREECH!
There was a guy coming down the turn lane. He didn't see me. I didn't see him.
Here are the results...

My car

His car

The police and fire departments decided to make an appearance.

Oh yeah, and right when we hit, bobby's entire soda and my entire soda spilled all over me. Mine went between me and my seat. The entire soda. So, bobby is sitting there freaking out cause he thinks somethings wrong with my leg cause I'm freaking out trying to get my ass out of the wet seat. It was a spectacle.
You can almost see how wet my skirt was in this picture. I had sticky brown streaks of soda down both of my legs.

We were lucky, no one was hurt and my car was still drivable. The other guy had to get his towed.

New Music Holder

I just bought the new I-Pod Nano!

The only I-Pod I have ever owned was a hand-me-down from an old roommate. So, really this is my first NEW I-Pod. I'm so excited about it, I wanted to share it with you.

I decided to name it Green Goblin.

Here's how it works!

Yea, I Love You, Green Goblin!

I love Ready-Made. If you aren't familiar, it's a magazine focusing on DIY home improvements/decorating. I bought an old issue and found a picture of a table I liked.

I decided to redo a table of my own with a similar feel to that table. This is what I made.

Then I sent an email into the "letter to the editor" email address at Ready-Made. It was just a letter with a picture of my table saying thanks for the ideas and here's one of probably a millions results. Well, about a week later I got an email back from the associate editor at Ready-Made asking if she could print my picture in the next issue.

So, if you read Ready-Made, make sure to check the re-ply section in the next issue. My table just might be in it.

Careful What You Ask For...

Cause you just might get it.

I decided to have a day to myself. I went to the liquor store, bought some tequila. Stopped by target to buy myself some stuff. One of which was (what bobby calls) a "sassy" hat.

That I will probably rarely wear.

Then I stopped by the Alligator Grill and had a few margaritas.

Then out of shear curiosity, I asked Bobby what he wanted me to make him tonight. Being silly, he said he wanted a stuffed pickle. Then changed his mind and said he'd rather I finally made a pillow from his old Billy Idol shirt.

I did make the pillow.

But then I had to make the stuffed pickle. How could you turn down a request like that?

All the while drinking more (homemade) margaritas. First regular...

Then lavender...

And now Bobby has a new friend.
