I made this dress a while ago but the neck was a bit too low for me so I gave it to my sister. It looks pretty cute on her although I will definitely have to hem it up a bit.

I made a cake for my friend Ashley's Mardi Gras themed birthday party. I didn't have the time that I would have liked to make the cake, but I think it turned out well. It's a Devil's Food Cake with a special butter-cream icing with Bailey's Irish Cream. I also made some cake balls in Mardi Gras colors.

My mentor teacher is a big fan of gnomes so I decided to make her something with gnomes for her birthday. I didn't have the time to make a quilt and she doesn't share my love of unusual skirts so I decided to make this tote bad for her instead. It's quilted and reversible!

I made these football shaped Oreo cookie truffles and chocolate covered pretzels for our Super Bowl party. Let me just say, those truffles were delicious! The whole party was a great success, even though the Steelers lost.

So I went to the wedding of some good friends this weekend and gave them a quilt as a wedding gift. I'm not going to lie, this one was definitely a challenge. I had two weeks to purchase the fabric and put it all together in addition to teaching and taking two grad school classes, but somehow I got it finished. The quilt measured out at about 60 x 50, the perfect size for a lap quilt for two.
