Leo Arrived!



Guess who was on my door step nice and fresh from his trip from NY with Patty?

Its LEO!!


If you want to read more about Leo's trips so far go check out Deb's blog at McCormik Maddness





I was pleased to see Leo came with an air freshener (being in a box can make you a bit stinky!)

He also came with a supply of candy that he didnt eat on the way here.
I may have to snag one or two for me my son.

We are looking forward to our adventures with Leo over the next couple weeks.

He may even get to celebrate Zeke's second birthday if he behaves decides to stick around a bit longer.

His and Hers quilts

I was invited to a friends daughters wedding.

I dont really know the daughter but I love her mom!!

I had no idea what I was going to give them as a wedding present thinking I would just buy something. Then about 2 weeks before the wedding I wanted to quilt!

I asked Judy to come over and approve the fabrics for the quilt.

Rebecca's favourite colour is orange followed by navy and grey.

humm.... I was thinking of doing a two tone quilt when I came across a pattern in one of my books!
I of course altered the pattern to make it into a lap quilt

BUT (and thats a big but)

I cut out twice as many blocks as I would need.

Oh what to do, what to do. I only wanted to make her a lap quilt.

I decided to do up two lap quilts and leave one as a flimsy to quilt up at another time.

Then I had time- so I did two quilts :)

I made one with a grey border and one with an orange border and called them His and Hers.

The size of the quilt was determined by the polka dot backing. I had 2 yards of it. So both quilts are apx. 42x60?? I never did measure them.




  apparently she also love polka dots- so yay for me!

I love the polka dot binding

The polka dots is a light flannel because she is always cold and is moving to North Dakota from North Carolina. HUGE change in winter temperatures!

I went to the wedding this past weekend.

Congratulations to Rebecca and Stephen!

Zeke's First Day of Preschool

It has come, and mommy is happy~
Zeke has started preschool!

I took this on the way to orientation day:

Just earlier (before I got the camera out) he was all excited and repeating things.

All dressed up and not wanting to take pictures
 is it in there?
 mommy- I need your fingers!!
Dont leave me!!! (2 seconds later Zeke was reading books with her and having fun)
This is a preschool at the church we go to. He knows many of the teachers and the rooms he is in. He just doesnt like new situations and he could tell this was different. 


 Special Treat~
