so much to do so little time!!

Okay so my mother, sister, two nieces and a friend of theirs will be here tomorrow evening. They are driving from Oregon and started their trip this morning at 6 o'clock. My house is still a mess and I am trying to get my daughters birthday gifts finished before they get here because I know they wont get done while they are here. They aren't heading back until the 23rd I believe, (sorry if I am wrong mom too much on the brain) and my baby's 2nd birthday is on the 27th. I almost have one gift finished but I have two more to build and a lot of felt food to make. On top of that, I am really feeling like fall is upon us and I need to get my daughter's bedding finished so she will be warm when winter takes over. I have been working on her quilt for about a month on and off and it is not very detailed so I have no excuse as to why it is not finished already but I am almost done with it. I still have pillow cases, and decorative pillows to make but they may have to wait for the winter months when I get snowed in :)

Enough about that, like I said I have been working on my daughter's birthday gifts and one of them is almost done......I am sooo happy with how it came out and I am planning on putting a real working clock on it!!! Well its late here so I must get to bed, but let me know what you think!!

 This is the quilt I have been working on forever (or so it seems).
 I'm going to put the clock in the pink block. I cant wait to get it finished.
 I know, I know, I said its a birthday present but shes only two she doesn't know the difference.
Not even finished and she loves it already!!!

Happy baby!!

These little guys are still coming along. At this point we had to stop and move the operation three hrs west to my friends house. Unfortunately I had to come home so she is continuing to work away. I cant wait to see how much progress she has made by the time I head back over in October.
