Mi Familia...

So I figured I should introduce my family before we go too far down the road of quilts and all other things. I have decided to start with the smallest and work my way to the biggest of my family members, so to start things off, here is my bunny. This was when he was just about 4 weeks old.

We adopted him back in February of 2010 and he has been an awesome addition to our home ever since. He stays in a large cage while we are gone and gets free run of the back patio when we come home. He is litter box trained (filled with Yesterday's News pellets and hay), and for the most part doesn't make too big of a mess. Here is a recent picture of him that is much fancier since I took and enhanced it with my iPhone.
His original name was Picasso (my husband is an artist) but his name has come to be known as Boolah or Boobalah depending on the mood. Other names known to have been used are: furry butt, poopy butt, fuzz butt, and destroyer of all things sea grass or wicker. He is a doll and my husband is in love with him.

Next is my (step)daughter Maitland. I say daughter only because I have no children of my own (never wanted any) and she is the closest to the daughter I imagined I would have had if I had made the decision to be a mother. She even look just like me when I was her age, it is amazing. She is so much like my husband (in the good ways and the bad) and she is creative, smart, funny, and caring. I just love her to pieces. She is 7 years old, but quick as a whip! I am teaching her how to sew and just got her a little Brother machine to practice on. She actually sews pretty straight lines, and is stuck to me like glue when I am quilting. (Hmmm, another budding quilter maybe?)
Last, but certainly not least is my husband, Robby (or Puppy as I refer to him). He is the most charming, romantic, funny, caring, and true spirit that I could of ever had hoped to be paired with in this life. He is a fantastic artist and being an artist is why we met and feel in love. I had bought one of his paintings at First Friday and when he came to hang it at my apartment, we were connected instantly.I couldn't imagine sharing my life with anyone else. He is my soul-mate and the reason that I understand love songs now.
Here is a picture of him by one of his recent pieces.
Yes, they are not small.

Well, that is my family and they all support my quilting, so you will most likely see them in some of my photos from time to time. caio.
