Visitor Fun

By |September 6th, 2008|My kids|9 Comments

We spent the last couple of days catching up and exploring new craftiness for my mom! She’s been a seamstress since she was a girl, like myself, and had never made a yo-yo until Thursday. My mom found my yo-yo maker in my handy bin of sewing stuff and that sent her on […]

Slow Down!

Hi again! I got to sew most of my cancer quilt top together last night, I need to add the borders before I share it with you again. My weeks seem to be flying by! Our nap schedule and school schedule haven’t meshed yet, and so, my sewing/blogging time has been scrapped […]

Easy Peasy!

I ironed and trimmed up my blocks yesterday and when I had a few moments ALONE this afternoon I laid it out! I should have a chance to get it put together soon :) We do have a special visitor coming this week, but I don’t foresee my machine being put away this […]

Independence

Tuesday. The first day of school. Every year I’m emotional, and Ella’s excited. She’s has missed her friends, and classroom learning all summer, but sending her into “the world” on her own – it leaves me a mess! We pray as we drive to school each morning that she would […]

An innocent summer cold . . . has turned into a bit of a problem. Including 4 sick kids and one sick mama, just in time for Ella to start 3rd grade. :)As we are working back into our school year routine, I feel busier than previous years and I’m hoping that things […]

The last couple of days have started to feel like fall!I’m not ready.I’ve woken up yesterday and today huddled under our down comforter (no quilt there, yet) with that cool crisp air that reminds me that it will be cold before I know it. I was just telling you how hot it was here, […]

Happy Friday!

I hope that you are having a great Friday, and that your weekend is great! I decided this morning that I was going to take the kiddos to the park. I feel like we are just getting to where I can trust everyone, on my own. Without help. My strategy is […]

Sophia

Sophia is a little over 3, at this age our family is her entire life. This morning I overheard her tell Emmalie – “Emmy you are my best friend.” In a very sweet and gentle manner, which isn’t always the case. Emmalie smiles and keeps going with whatever she was doing. Later […]

After paying a few bills online I walked back into the kitchen and found Owen exploring. :)In the kitchen cart that is usually full of canned goods, but happens to be empty enough at the moment for him to climb on in!After grabbing the camera and taking a quick pic, I called his name. […]

Binky Patrol

Well, here’s the extent of my creative endeavors for today! A bink connector for my little man. As we started walking a lot in the spring, Owen began tossing his bink right out of the stroller. We even found one the next day one time! I have not had much […]

Well I had plans to work on a new bag that I have been formulating – but I have no interfacing. Next!Remember this quilt top? I had quite a bit of fabric left so I cut it into squares – I have no idea how many or an exact plan yet, but I […]

Sticky Situation

By |June 25th, 2008|My kids|5 Comments

I ended up cutting this out of Emmalie’s hair today – yuck! I had started with the ice and trying to pry each hair from the sticky gooey mess, with each moment Em was growing more and more upset. It was odd though – I was on the phone with my mom and […]
