Ode to the Smart Phone

{Mckenna      &     Summer}

Its 2013. 
I am quite sure my husband and I were one of the last hold-outs to switch over to Smart Phones and even upgrade to a data plan.  This just happened a few weeks ago.  
Seriously.

I opted for the iPhone5 and have not been disappointed yet! 
Which brings me to the above snapshot of my little peanuts, almost 3 months old!  After bath time yesterday I thought they looked uber-cute in their Apple jammies so I propped them in the corner of the couch and grabbed my phone.  

I must admit the iPhone5 takes pretty nice photos!  When I don't have time to snatch my SLR for a quick shot, I think phone pics will do nicely!  

AND
There are these things called eBooks and eAudiobooks!  I read an entire book *on my phone* in 12 days.  Yes, mostly while nursing babies... but I did it!  And no short novella, either!  Diana Gabaldon is my favorite author at the moment.  I hadn't yet listened to The Scottish Prisoner, so I downloaded the eBook via my local Library App post-haste for a 14 day rental!  The paper book is over almost 600 pages so I consider it quite the accomplishment. I haven't finished a book of that length in over 3 years - thanks to my life as a mommy.
So, Thank You Apple, for allowing me to take decent pics, download books, listen to books even, and keep up on my FB and Etsy, too... all in the palm of my hand.  Did I mention there's a Target App too?

Thank you for listening to my ramblings.
A new quilt has been started so I hope share that progress soon.  After all, this is a sewing blog, right?

{I'm an Addict}



More adorable little onesie dresses!  I have one new little niece and one pending little niece due to arrive mid-July! I hope the babies love their new duds!
 I love being an Aunt... finally!


 Summer is my little sewing assistant today.  
A yard or two of minky makes for an excellent baby landing pad.

Now that the onesie dresses are done (yeah, it only took me about a week to make them, 2 minutes here and 5 minutes there...) I think I need to start a new quilt!  Your eyes do not deceive you - I've had that pattern & fabric sitting on my cutting table for almost a year.  Holy cow.  So YAAAY!!!!!  Its about time!

Thanks for stopping by!
