Some new pics...

Chase! I woke up this morning to these cute pictures in my e-mail inbox from Mandy.

This hat is being auctioned off at Christ Lutheran's May Fest Friday night. I found this button in my stash. Not sure how old it is, but I think it pulls it all together. I just made the Amy Butler Halter Top out of this fabric as well. It turned out really cute and is very simple! Crafty Planet has made me very busy lately. It's my dream store...fabulous fabrics and yarn!

Chase in Organic Cotton

I'm trying out some new yarns for fall. This one is organic cotton. It's luscious and indulgent (is that too much?). I love the way it feels when I'm knitting with it. It's silky without feeling....synthetically silky. The true test will be how it holds up. Organics tend to be a bit more delicate so I want to see how this yarn behaves. Isn't Chase the perfect ginny pig? He is such a calm soul. He seems to like brunettes (smart already). When I'm talking he sits and smiles and flirts with me. It's so distracting that I can't finish what I'm saying. I just surrender and coo with him. Babies, like the ones I know, make it hard not to want another.....

Kobey Jean

This little girl you may recognize from Mandy's blog. Her Momma got a hat too, but it always seems a bit harder for the Moms to send pics of themselves. :) Thanks for the pic Lindsey!

This is our nephew, Cole. He is such a little man! We had a birthday party last night and he slept and cooed and ate and slept. Such a good baby. I made this hat for him when he was born. Can't believe it already fits him. It's 100% cotton so it's a great for spring...and machine washable...gotta love it.

It's been too long...

It's been too long. The warm weather has given us all a new life. It's great to see neighbors again and feel the warm sun. The kids have had tons of fresh air...we love the side effect of them sleeping through the night! :)

Here are some pics from Easter happenings.

Mandy and Jayden stopped by after their trip home from ND. Mandy made the headband she's wearing. Crazy cute....
My Mom made chicks years ago for her Easter table. Each year as our family grew she made more.
She made some bunnies this year too!

My very talented nieces made this cake. I thought Fin was going to hyperventilate when he saw it. The ears are made out of that fruit leather. It was a BIG hit!

My new card

Mandy made my new card for me (and my new blog header!). I just love it. She used some digital scrap booking elements in Photoshop. I'm a pretty lucky girl, huh?

Eloise and Esther

I love getting pictures like this! Eloise and Esther are the luckiest girls because their Momma, Tracy, is a Trunk keeper for Matilda Jane Clothing. What a dream! I bought the cutest skirt for myself when Mandy had a Matilda Jane show at her house. Now I just need it to get a little warmer and then I can wear it...

Hats in action...

I have been searching for these photos! They were in the abyss of my computer and I found them today. Couldn't remember what I named them, where I put them...hate that.

These are Amy's girls. They live in Ohio so I bet by now they have buds on the trees and some green grass. Can't wait for those days here....

The donut lover turns 5....

Graham insisted on skipping a cake and having donuts instead. He and my Mom made these together. He was very proud. Can't believe how quickly 5 years goes by...

Some new ones


Here's a pic Mandy took of Brekka in her hat. She is gorgeous, isn't she?
