"A" is for Announcement!

I am super excited to share some new information with all of you.  First of all, we all know that my job had gotten quite crazy over the winter.  After a lot of prayers and soul searching, I had put my notice in at work.  I had given them 9 weeks notice, but that turned into 12 weeks!  During our search for a new person, they had also convinced me to still stay on, but at a much lesser capacity.  I was able to pick my hours and what I wanted to do.  Win win I say!  So I went down from 36 hours a week to 12 hours a week, which means I get to spend a lot more precious time with the little kiddos above!  I also get to spend more time making my home into my "dream" home, which has been put on the back burner for the past several years.  And A LOT more time on quilting!  This means a lot more fun quilting posts coming your way.  I have projects that I want to make for my home, gifts for others, and more practicing on my free motion quilting!

Now on to my current WIP!  Many of you have seen all over blog land these adorable "Alphabet" quilts and I couldn't help but start to make one as well.  I want to make a "Special Alphabet Book" for each of my girls for Christmas using these Alphabet blocks.  The fabric line I am using is call "Scrumptious" by Bonnie and Camille.  The project calls for one Jelly Roll and a background fabric.  I am so excited to see this quilt come together.  Plus it doesn't hurt that these blocks are a lot of fun to make!
