I registered Sam for kindy yesterday after much, much debate. (In the end it was something jack to me that flipped my switch. He mentioned that he doesn't even remember kindy to me last week. It was really hard to find a good fit for him too, and he only has two memories of it! Last week the little kids went to vbs, so he and I had a lot of time together. ) anyway, she and I have been working together and her skills have improved tremendously. She has even started to read!
On to the junk:
Pile o' freezer baskets.
Piece o' repro fabric. I am working on a 30s hexie quilt.
A tiny photo album marked with her name and 1930 inside.
Tea cups. I'm still dreaming of a tea cup tree for the foyer.
My first beaded flowers! I always have some of these in my eBay watch list. These were a $1. Score!
Vintage Cake toppers. I have 14 now. It's a surprisingly hard collection to grow.
Cutest apron ever.
And a sweet quilt.
Speaking of quilts - I've cleared some out again and they are available on Instagram. It's really the only place I sell anything these days, but if you see one you want on fb or there you can email me about it too.
As I was deciding what quilt to make next, I decided it was Dave's turn.
Simple half square triangles turned not so simple when I had to buy the black and white print from alL corners of the earth - including Alaska! But it was the prefect compliment to the New Bedford prints, so well worth doing.
To personalize it I put the kids initials in the corners. It's backed in chambray, which was a new choice for me but it seemed suited to the masculine prints.
They were surprisingly easy to make (I have an improv alphabet book).
Oy, these kids are just total chaos all the time right now. I mean TOTAL CHAOS. My house is chaos, my car is chaos, trying to take these photos was chaos, even trying to use this new computer is chaos. Awesome.
Happy Fathers day to the man who lives the chaos with me every day.
We took the kids to Baldwin City, KS to ride on Thomas again this weekend. I am not even sure how many times we've done that now, but I am committed to doing it until they do not want to do it anymore! Baldwin City always does a very nice job putting on this event and I love that picturesque little part of Kansas. The sky is always so blue and full of gorgeous puffy clouds!
Anyway, the pictures can do the talking.
This year was special - Percy was there too. The cars for Percy were old dining cars - much different than the Thomas experience.
Peep! Peep! See ya next year Thomas (and Kansas too!)
