Ciudado! Picture Overload

The amount of time I spent in a car this weekend was the equivalent of driving from J-town to Valdosta, GA. Busy, busy weekend. Today I'll give a glimpse into the baby shower. Warning Will Robinson! There are a lot of pictures here, I really hope this works and blogger doesn't throw up all over both of us. Here goes:


I'm going to slip out of character for a bit, hahaha and go a little "Mean Girl" on you...... Presenting! Lord Helmet. Yes, believe it or not, this is what Whynot left for me.



Augie Dawgs with her Aunt Kaffee, TOF and Lord Helmet. Kaffee and Helmet are sisters. I'll just leave it at that.



Could I have a more cheesy mouse face? Blogher '09 attendees take note, the lonely woman you see in the corner, quite possibly wearing THAT shirt, because I have a limited wardrobe, might very well be ME! Please, for the love of God, come over and say hi so I don't feel like a big dork all day. My busy social calendar only allows me to attend on Sat, so plan accordingly.



Durwood's Grandmother, me and TOF, Durwood's Mother and Lord Helmet. No hatchets were buried in this house of Thomas Kincaid overload.

Now some pictures of the quilt. I work well under pressure and amazingly completed it with a little time to spare.



Snipping the quilt. Holy hell Batman, my hand STILL hurts and I have a ginormous blister on my ringer finger!




Close up of the snipping. OUCH!



Washed and ready to gift. Now after every wash the edges will fray
a little more for that raggy effect.



Clearly TOF likes the blankie. Don't even try to guilt me into making one for you buddy,
well at least not this week.

Stay tuned tomorrow for more excitement from my busy weekend!

All joking aside, I love that quilt! The fraying was so worth all that snipping.

Now... Lord Helmet? Somebody chose poorly. That's ALL I'm saying.

I love the quilt! So, have you started on TOF's yet?

Lola said...

I'm so jealous you're going to blogher.

Great quilt.

Btw, anyone who wears a house dress to a shower deserves to have everyone go "mean girls" on her.

Melissa said...

Durwood, seriously? I thought only may family used that weird name...it's a small world after all.

Midwest Mommy said...

I am memorizing that shirt so I can spot you!

Love the blanket!

Michelle said...

Wow, that was a great job with the quilt! Come find me on Saturday at BlogHer. I'll be there and definitely planning on having fun. Are you staying for parties afterwards? Glad you made it safely to the shower and back with no hatchets buried anywhere!
