Life Lately - We Tied the Knot!

Some exciting things have happened recently! Jeff and I finally tied the knot on Pi Day, and it couldn't have been better! We had an intimate ceremony with just close family, and then a dinner afterwards. It was perfect and wonderful, and everything I wanted it to be. Plus now we have the best anniversary ever :) 3.14.15

I got the cake topper in this cute little Etsy shop called emilysteffen. It's glittery and adorable and exactly what I wanted. (do you see a trend lol) My mom surprised me the morning of the wedding with the adorable Mickey & Minnie art. It definitely made me cry! She knows me so well.

Jeff has been, and continues to be, such an amazing man and loving father to our little muchkin! I hit the jackpot with this one, and I am so so so happy to finally call him my husband. I am looking forward to seeing how our photographers pictures come out, and I can wait to share them with you guys!

Sew my Stash 2015

I have bought a lot of fabric recently...... A LOT OF Fabric, and it is getting to the point where I have more stash than finished projects. Now I know to many that might not seem like a bad thing, whoever dies with the biggest stash wins right lol, but I really want to up the number of completed projects I have.

So I have decided to go on a fabric diet. QuiltCon was especially detrimental to my pocketbook because I could see all the gorgeous fabrics I normally shop for online, up close and personal! I walked away with a fantastic haul of things, just a few are pictured below.

On top of all the goodies I purchased, I also should mention my super duper awesome wonderful, but very expensive new sewing machine! It was a fantastic deal off the regular price, but still hefty.

So! These are the rules that I am going to be giving myself, and I'm posting it here so you guys can hold me accountable! Call me out if I fall off the wagon please!
  1. Do not buy fabric simply because I want it. (even though that is the best reason to buy it)
  2. Use at least 1/2 of my stash by July/August. 
    • This is going to be my check point for the year.
  3. Purchasing white/grey/linen etc. is allowed for background fabrics, but only if I do not have enough of something on hand.
    • & As long as it is for a specific project.
  4. The purchase of backing fabric is allowed so that projects can be finished.
    • I'll try to piece backing from stash if possible.
I am giving myself one freebie and that is I am going to pre-order the Lizzy House Natural History line and the Tula Pink True Colors line next week when I get paid.

Is anyone else going on a fabric diet this year?
