Spoonflower fabrics, my anniversary, and some links

Happy 5 year anniversary to me and my hubby today!

5 year anniversary!

  • a. Wedding day, Muncie, Indiana
  • b. One year anniversary trip, Niagara Falls & Toronto
  • c. Early 2-year anniversary and trip to see friends in the Republic of Ireland & Northern Ireland
  • d. We liked Northern Ireland so much we returned the next year. Loved Giant’s Causeway!
  • e. Maine coast anniversary trip, 4 years
  • f. Early 5-year anny trip to Montreal & Quebec City

As you can see, we don’t do a lot of warm-weather vacations! I did, however, manage to trick him into going on a Caribbean cruise somewhere in there. And we’ve been fortunate to have a few Las Vegas warm-weather-cations. He’s pretty awesome!

In other news, I received my Spoonflower charm squares in the mail! Thanks to AnneMarie for organizing this swap.

Oh, do I have plans for these… Actually, I don’t have any plans just yet, but these will be fun to throw into patchwork projects here and there. 🙂
