Have you ever wondered . . .

How some mom’s seem to do it all? This is how Ella came home from a birthday party yesterday. Not only was there face painting, there was a clown who did magic and made balloon animals, a pinata, and a SpongeBob Birthday Cake! Needless to say Ella had a blast. She did […]

Quilt Top In a Day

By |June 6th, 2008|My kids, work in progress|11 Comments

I know, I surprise myself too! Sewing with 4 little ones running around can be challenging. I just have to plan ahead for naptime and I sew at the kitchen table. This is a blessing and a curse. A blessing because I can be in the midst of my kids […]

Finished Quilt

So yesterday I sat off and on when possible to finish the binding by hand on Emmalie’s quilt. By late afternoon I had finished – my hands were numb at that point so it was a good thing! It went straight to the wash, for the puckery finishing touch. I took it up to Em […]

Owen is walking?! Last week he had his 11 month milestone and it seemed to be the day he decided to walk. He has been practicing for at least 3 months – one, two steps here and there, occasionally a third. Then it turned into five and six steps at a time […]

We have been in party mode around here. First, my birthday was a great day, family, fun and shopping! The three greats. I went to the outlets and got all stocked up for summer. I had been thinking back to last summer and remembered that I spent it indoors, in sweats with […]

Usually I feel a little whiny after a long Monday – not today! The sun was warm and bright and it was the last Monday of the school year. Just writing it makes me smile, no more Monday alarm clock, no more pestering Ella to get ready before school, we just have to […]
