I can’t believe it has been almost a month since my last post…well, actually I can!  I don’t know where the time goes, I just know that I have been a busy girl!!!  Emma is putting more and more words together each day, what a sponge!  She loves to point out airplanes, trains and her new discovery roly poly bugs, she seemed a little puzzled when it rolled into a ball, but sheer joy & amazement when it opened back up again…her face was priceless.
I know I have been busy because I have so many things to say today, might actually require a couple of posts!  Holy cow, I am excited just thinking about it.  Since my last post I have completed 2 of the 3 jacket classes I mentioned last time.  So far, so good we have a jacket coming right along! Maybe there can be a few photos to show the work in progress, the rick rack is looking adorable on the jacket, now just need to make the flowers!   Just trying to decide if I want to make the burnt edge flowers, or make rick-rack flowers…decision, decisions. 
I have also ordered business cards for my little sewing business, I even added something to the name so it is now Dragonfly Stitches & Birdie Wishes…Emma loves her birds!  Her new addition to her bedroom is a tree branch suspended from the ceiling, spray painted white & lacquered with love by Uncle Clyde, then Auntie Dawn brought some beautiful birds to add to the branches.  It is adorable and sometimes Emma & I just hang out there with the lights on the branch and look at the birds; she thinks it is great…hmmm, maybe a photo of her tree!  Boy, I keep adding more work for myself..but like I said, sooooo cute, you gotta see it.
I also completed 4 Emma bags! Yay!!!!  I will be adding photos, they just got finished last night and it was late so no time to take pictures, and I finished 2 new samples for the quilt shop!  Yahoo, so that means I will be teaching a couple new classes here in the near future, there will be about 4 or 5 from the book so it makes buying the book worthwhile and what fun! So, yes…as soon as they are quilted I will add those photos as well.
I will close for now so I can take photos while the sun is still shining. I have to get ready for tomorrows garage sale…my 1st one ever, so that should be interesting.   It’s supposed to be a block sale but I haven’t seen any signs up yet, but I decided to participate…lots of shoes, some of Emma’s things she has outgrown and whatever else I can find around the house that I am not using!  Emma will love it because she will be outside all morning…Papa said it’s a good way to celebrate his birthday!  So Happy Birthday today Dad and we will celebrate tomorrow with Miss Emma!
Xoxo, Emma's mom
