My First Quilt!

With A LOT of help from my mom, I finished my first quilt! I used all of my old t-shirts from high school. I wanted some way to keep them and carrying them around in a bag or something would be just weird, so this was a perfect way to preserve my memories! My mom helped me figure out the layout and helped me cut them into squares. Then I had to iron each square on to some interfacing thing to make it not so floppy. Then I sewed it all together. Then my mom embroidered "Lone Peak Knights" and "Class of 2007." Then I pinned the back to the batting and the top, then my mom used her handy machine and quilted these cute swirly things on it. I love it! It's so comfy and so fun to have. I can't wait to start my college t-shirt quilt! Here it is!

And here is the sweet embroidery job my momma did:

100% Attendance... so far.

School has been in session for 28 days so far, and I have been to every SINGLE class. This is a big deal for me. I usually skip a few classes within the first week of school. I am hoping to have 100% attendance this semester. It's gonna be rough. But, I think I can do it.

Also, I cut 5 inches off my hair. It's still long, but not crazy long like it used to be. I like it though. Here is a picture I took in my office today on my computer. Enjoy.
