Note to self...


OK, so my friend that just delivered a week ago was saying how nice it will be to not be pregnant with a belly that gets in the way all the time. I didn't really understand what she was talking about until my little mis-hap with the iron. I was making the quilt top for Dru and Melissa's baby girl and I was ironing one of the sections. I usually iron on a quarterly basis so I haven't done any for a while(sorry mom I just don't see the need to iron everything.) Well since my belly has expanded I guess I need to make some minor adjustments. I was standing a little too close the the ironing board and when the iron passed by it got me. Yep right through my g's and all( it was one of those really hot days and all I was wearing was my underwear.) Note to self...step away from the iron...This quilt must be a labor of love because for anyone else I would have just quit and said it will have to wait. Well, I finished the top and still have the quilting to do but it is well on it's way to completion. Hope you like it!

P.S. the picture makes my belly look extremely large, it's not that big, it's just the angle of the camera. You know when you are doing your own camera work it's hard to get a good shot!

I don't know Brooke.......I have my doubts about whether your belly button is going to "pop" afterall......

Lol I'm so sorry Brooke. We are going to love it and thanks for the 'committed attitude' about the whole thing. I'm sure the 'baby girl' will love it.
We looked through a name book and came up with two new ones. First of all Dru and I saw the name Ima which we laughed about for about 5 minutes on the couch. I can just hear her, "What's your name?" "Ima Nakaya", "Yeah we know you're a Nakaya, what's your first Name?" Ima Nakaya" "YEah we know that, but what's your first name?"
Ok so we're really not going to call her that. I also thought I liked the name Phenoix, I think that's spelt wrong, last night then woke up this morning and though "Am I crazy?" So we're going nowhere really fast.
I hope that doesn't leave a scar Brooke.
