Recent Reads

This year has just flown by, between work, travels and just living life.  While I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to have to curl up with a good book, I have lucked out by picking some great books when I did have time.

Here are a couple of those great books where I’ve spent my time:

Feeling Quilty

I definitely didn’t make it anywhere near 12 crafts this year like I had originally planned in January, but I did finish another quilt that I haven’t yet shared here. 

I gave this quilt to my mother-in-law in May for her birthday.  I forgot to take a picture of it before giving it to her, but luckily we spent Christmas in Casper, and I was able to snap a quick picture while we were there (sorry it is blurry – it was FREEZING outside and my quilt holder, coughJOELcough, was getting antsy.




I’m loving the striped fabric I decided to use for the edging, and have my next quilt all set-up to use striped edging too…pictures of that quilt to come once it is complete!

Antigua Guatemala

This Thanksgiving Joel and I headed down to Guatemala and Nicaragua for a little getaway.  I took so many pictures, it is going to take awhile to get through them, but here is the first set. 

We spent the first few days in Antigua Guatemala.  Antigua was the original capital city of Guatemala, but was moved due to an earthquake in the 1770s.  The architecture in the city was incredible; huge, beautiful cathedrals with intricate details everywhere you looked.
