Jason asked me to marry him last week and I said YES! We are very excited. He spent the last couple of months working with an amazing jewelry artist to design my ring ( and the proposal was very private and personal. It was perfect. We've been together for over four years now, and I thought it would be fun to reflect on some of our memories together. Here are pictures from the last four years (in reverse order).

With A Border

Here is the quilt top again...with a border this time.

Here are all of the quilt squares together. We have a lot of talent in our family! Everyone did such a nice job on their quilt squares and they look even better when they are all together. I'll be adding a border and then I will give the quilt top to my mom and she will add the back and binding and quilt it all together. I think Grandma is really going to like it!

Here are a couple of pictures of the top and bottom (so you can see the squares a little better).

Hickman Family Quilt Squares

Here are all of the quilt squares from the Hickman Family. They printed some pictures that grandma will really enjoy in the quilt and Sam and Heidi's families made hand prints with paint that turned out great. I'll post a picture of all of the quilt squares soon. They look really great when they are all together!

Do It Your Own D*mn Self

Today was the second annual Do It Your Own D*mn Self sale in Chicago. I really enjoy talking with other crafters at these events and I am very excited about my purchases. Jason's cousin, Jamie, was in town so she joined us for lunch and some craft supply shopping. We enjoyed her company today. She lives in Iowa and we don't get to see her often.

Cutest Little Crochet Dress

This is the dress I saw at the flea market in Florida ( I bought one from the lady who was selling them and she was so kind to send me the pattern. It took a couple of tries, but I ended up finishing the one below and I sent it to my friend Heidi who just had her second little girl. I hope she likes it. I know I think it is the cutest little dress.

Munger Family Squares

I received these quilt squares from Marcy and Aunt Jacque the other day. This one is Marcy's. She picked these fabrics especially for Grandma and we agreed that she will definitely like the paisley print as it reminds us of a shirt she has.

These squares are from Aunt Jacque. She also picked patterns and fabrics that she knows Grandma will like and that remind her of Grandma and Grandpa.

Everyone is putting so much thought and effort into making their quilt squares! They are all turning out so nice and I am looking forward to seeing them all come together.
