I love this purse!

Okay - how many months did it take for me to finally put a picture of the purse up? Carin took me to this wonderful quilt shop by her house and introduced me to Amy Butler Designs. I found this great material and got the purse made. It was always being used, so I couldn't get a picture of it. However, my marker leaked on it and made a stain! I am so sad. I guess I will have to find different material and make a new one, maybe something more springy!

and the winner is ... the skateboard

So Daniel and I spent most of our night at the ER. Fingers just can't stand up to a skateboard wheel. Daniel is already asking when he can go skateboarding again. The good news is that there were no fractures. (The pictures were taken with the cellphone - sorry). He will lose his fingernail, but a new one will grow in.

Blankets again

Back to making baby blankets. Why is Tina the only one with friends having babies? Soph thanks for having a birthday right after we were there so your mom was making a blanket that I could copy! I couldn't find the great fabrics she could though. Why is it there are so many ugly fabrics out there right now? The quality has gone down too. I guess if I went to quilt shops the quality would be better, but they don't have coupons!

Sunday Barbeque

Nothing like a nice relaxing barbeque after church on Sunday - until you have to call the fire department. The fish was all done and the grill ready to turn off when it decided to go up in flames. Luckily Tom got the grill off the porch before it got too hot. The fire dept just let the propane burn out, so we have a nice scorch mark in the grass and it isn't even 120 out yet! I don't know - do you think it's too melted to use again?


Valentine's Day is coming and we (I mean I) have been making aprons for teachers. Since the boys each have 2 and Phoebe has 4 that's a lot of aprons! I think I am now sick of pink, red and hearts!
