but that is coming to an end!
I have worked hard
time to rest!
here is maggie twirling in a little three tiered skirt I whipped up for her,
from the instructions I found here.
easy and cute. you can't really tell, but the bottom red has tiny white polka dots on it. cute stuff.
the weather was so nice yesterday, we spent a bunch of time outside, and Ben was busy making a snow man. I think the kid reads too much Calvin and Hobbes. a murdered snowman on my front yard. nice. red "blood" and all. real nice.
finally finished my stip quilt I made way back when our ward first started having a quilting group- well over a year ago. it is now done. I machine quilted it with a meandering stitch, and stars thrown in every so often. cute. but don't look too closely. I sewed it with some red white and blue veregated thread donated from my sister Shelley. so sweet.
avaliable at my shop. shown is the newborn size on my newborn niece- I don't think she liked it so much,
but if she only know how darn cute she looks!
on a sad note, the man in my ward who was sick died on Monday night.
funeral on saturday. sad, sad stuff.
on a happy note, my sister in law who was due at the end of April had her baby a couple of days ago. he is 4 pounds, tiny, but doing really good.
I will try to stop in and see him tonight on my way to my sisters to get my hair highlighted. so exciting!
and that is the latest and greatest around here.
