Being an aunt means lots of sewing...

...but I'm not complaining ;) My youngest niece is turning 1 this Friday (!) and I'm in the process of making her a colorful fabric book - as in, a picture book of colors, but with fabric. Each block is going to be sewn to another and I'm going to tie them all together to make the book. I plan to quilt them this weekend, too! More soon about this!

I was inspired by this post at Homegrown Happy (that baby is just the cutest). For a 1 year old, it seems like the perfect gift. Plus, the fabric has some different textures, so she can feel them, too. I'm excited to send it off to her :)

At the same time, I went to a wedding with Mike this weekend - our first wedding together, and as adults! It was for one of his sisters. I ran around helping everyone get ready, and we also found out at the reception that she's pregnant, too! I'll be Aunt Jess some more :) I'm already planning the baby quilt... oh, and I promised the happy couple a wedding quilt or couch quilt or whatever they want, so I'll be busy!

Here's a picture of us from the wedding :)

Linking up for the first time in a while :)
