We Are Having A.......

 Yippee!! There is going to be a change in power come June 2nd when our latest Grandson will be joining the family!!!! Mommy and Daddy are super excited, Kara could care less she is still trying to get her hands on Masons Dyson!
 Our Niece picked this quilt last night, she is hiding under there somewhere.
 After seeing our Niece and hubby off this morning (along with a small shopping trip) I hit it hard and heavy starting Tyler's Bama quilt. I sacrificed one of my tee's for the center of his quilt along with the logo running down the sleeve.
Super duper simple patchwork quilt using 6 inch blocks of Bama fabric. I realized after dropping hubby at the airport that I didn't have backing fabric for Ty's quilt. Since I was so close to the fabric outlet figured I would save some money as well as gas. One of the stinky things about being without a debt or credit card is unplanned trips like this. I am VERY close to being out of cash after my shopping spree!! Sure hope that new debit card comes in soon.

We are so excited over the news of a new baby boy joining our family in just 5 short month's. When hubby called tonight he suggested I go ahead and make a second Bama quilt for the new addition. He of course has a good point but a second quilt will have to wait.

Along with getting Ty Boy's quilt completed somebody (me) has got to pack up Christmas decorations and get this house cleaned. We have always started the New Year with the decks cleared of all things Christmas related. This year might be a new first.

I will have lots of time on my hands to get this place back in shape during the month of January as I am joining in with Sharon for a Fiscal Fast the first week of January. The rest of the month I am jumping in on Carla's No/Low January challenge. I don't know about the rest of you but I am sick to death of all the spending that has been going on. It's time to get back on track.

I'm off to bed. Pin basting and a day of FMQ for me tomorrow, I need some sleep!
