I learned how to quilt. Thank you youtube and about.com for teaching me how to make a quilt. I had left over fabric from a project I had done forever ago, so the obvious thing was to "just make a quilt with the leftovers" there is no just in making a quilt. It took forever. Parts were so fun, other parts enjoyable, and other parts made me hate quilting and never want to do it again. The fact that I dont like making decisions made it even worse. Questions like "how big are you going to make it?" or "what fabric do you want for your border, backing, binding....." made me want to curl up in a corner and forget about the quilt. But after an hour at hobby lobby talking with Julie (the very nice worker woman) we finally made decisions. I also learned I hate basting. Thank you Cathy for doing that for me while I watched youtube videos on how to free motion quilt.

|free motion quilting...woowhoo!|
My brother and his wife just bought a new house in Orem. Well a new, old house. Meaning there are lots of projects and remodeling. I have filled my days with chipping away at concrete, painting a cold storage room, and using power tools. It has been wonderful! They have been nice enough to save the "fun" jobs for me. Next projects. Installing a toilet, and cutting drywall. To say im excited would be an understatement. Weird? Maybe.
what else does 2012 hold? hmmm maybe I will learn how to speak a new language....adios.
