Easter Party

Look at my face.. I am enjoying the chocolate!
Max was so cute doing the Piniata.. he would hit it and do a belly laugh that was contageous and made everyone else laugh.

Max loved finding the eggs and was sad when he found all of his.

One down, 4+ to go..




I really liked how this bag turned out. A friend wanted one for her daughter so it is a smaller version of my other bags. It is 14x14.

What to do...

Really I know what to do... I just have a few projects on the table and need to get them all going.. Here's what's top 5 on my to do real soon list:

1- Complete my bag orders, Oaklee, Betty, Mom, Kennali, Emma, and Cameron
2- Make my adorable great nephew Cael a quilt
3- Send my LOOONG over due quilt which is done by the way to a very cute little 9 month old in New York. Yeah, it has been done almost that long.. Here's hoping I can maybe get out there this fall too.
4-Create the 3 patterns I have drawn up .
5- Apply for a grant for school. Seriously doubt this will come to fruition at least this year since my income last year wasnt quite poverty level. Trust me, it is this year. Oh well, all good things come to those who are patient. Which although not a strong point with me, I promise, I am trying to be..

A little help...










I have a 2 year old neice that thinks it is her responsibility to help her "pappa" get back to "his" chair. If he gets up to go eat or go to the bathroom, she follows behind him with her hand on his legs sort of pushing him saying "mon pappa chair". Tonight she guided him from behind unto he turned around to sit down and then she pushed him from in front. Once he sits down, she grabs his blanket and helps him put it on.








It is one of the cutest/ sweetest things and brings tears to my eyes. She is so thoughtful and protective at such a young age and sure does love her Pappa. I was finally able to grab the camera just in the nick of time.

Easter quilt



Here is a picture of my easter quilt that i did last year. I finally had it quilted and was able to get it put up for this year. I love making quilts like this. They go together fast and if the seams don't match, OH WELL!!


I am working on a new pattern which should be done this next weekend if all goes well. It screams spring and is made with the new Rainy Days fabric from Riley Blake Designs. stay tuned!!

Peyton's Cake











Last Friday was Peyton's Birthday. She is the Big "2". They came over to our house on Saturday and spent some time with us which is always fun. Lee Ann brought a cake mix and let her help make the cake.

BAD IDEA..



Here it is... The hair cut from heck! Truly what was I thinking!! I have been pretty impulsive all my life and it has never been a good thing. I took Thursday off just to play and on an impulse decided to go get my hair cut. I went to a lady at Dollar Cuts that I have gone to before but this time she did a total hack job on it. The back bottom was uneven and horrible.


I finally left there and drove down the street to a bigger salon and asked a very nice lady to please fix it. She was appalled at what the other lady had done and thought I had it done at a school. If you look closely, you can see in the back where it is uneven. Unfortuantley I will have to live with it for about 4 weeks until it grows out some.


I know, right about now you are saying to yourself, so what's the big deal? I know it is just hair and it will grow back. I am really more mad at myself for acting on my impulsiveness and walking in the salon. Trust me, the manager will hear about it snd it will be the last time I ever go in there.


Now on to nicer things...


Tomorrow is my Birthday and I can't believe I will be 42. WOW!! Oh well, I only feel like I am 30ish so that is good. Now if I can have the body of one!! working on it!!!!

I heart March....


I really like March and not just because it is my (and practically everyone I know) Birthday. March means spring and lots of new things... flowers, grass coming out of hybernation, snow melting... starting diets...again.

Have a fabulous week...
