I rock.

I have finished my first quilt ever. It's for my newest niece, Brooklyn. She's over a month old now so it's a little late but...whatever. I'm a hero because I couldn't even sew before I made this. Seriously, I didn't know how to thread a sewing machine and I had to watch a bunch of Youtube videos to figure out how to slip-stitch. It looks awesome from a distance.

I took some pictures for you so that you could admire my mad skills.

Here is a picture of the front that Chris thought would be funny to ruin. Sniff.

Here is the front without any distractions:

Ahem, please note that I sewed her name into the border.

Here is the back:

It looks SO BEAUTIFUL from a distance. But when you get up close... heh heh, well it resembles Frankenstein stitches. I tried to take a picture of it but you can't see how tragic the back looks so well. I mean, I know this picture is not so flattering of my stitches, but I promise the real one is much worse.

Still, I am super proud. Hooray for me! I am awesome.
