Ugh…I have been so negligent with my blog, I set a goal and I failed…miserably!!! So I will try again with May just beginning. I don’t feel like I have accomplished much, but I know I have been diligently working. Where does the time go? I have completed a few unfinished projects, started a few more and currently working on a T-shirt quilt ( actually 2 T-shirt quilts one for each son). So far so good, it is looking great. I tried a new pattern with this one and I just have to figure out to make the center blocks tilt the opposite direction…wish me luck!
Easter was great! Emma was so much fun this year, took her to an egg hunt with my neighbors and what a treat! What manners my girl has, she was going after the same egg as a little boy, she got there first and turned to him and shared!!!! What a proud mommy moment! Even though, the whole way to the egg hunt, Papa was coaching her in the back seat…”don’t stop and show your eggs to Mommy, Nana or Papa just go, go, go!” She had that down pat, but again…she stopped to share an egg with the little guy. Fun- filled day at the park, some quality time with Auntie Lynda and early to bed to wait for the Easter Bunny! Easter Sunday was spent with family and friends, a good time had by all. We decorated Easter cookies in the morning when we got up, I think there was more icing on Emma than on her cookie…wish I had a video of that(but mommy only has two hands) so it is forever preserved in my mind and in my heart….and the quick cell phone picture I managed to get. The first egg hunt she found 78 eggs(I made sure to count so no egg was left behind) with a little help of course, who knew the bunny left so many. After dinner, mommy got a text message from the Easter Bunny saying he dropped more eggs off in the backyard because he saw that Uncle Clyde had arrived…so off we went again! Needless to say, Emma slept good that night! The next morning she woke up asking for more, more! Gotta love it!!!
This is the big weekend that I tackle a job I am really excited about and dreading at the same time, but I know that it desperately needs to be done and I will feel oodles better when its completed…the fabric cabinets in the garage. I am finally going to organize and get all my quilt shop fabric in some sort of color order, rolled onto cardboard and looking nice and neat for once! There is fabric hiding in there that I know will make it like Christmas morning and make me say…remember when???? This way, I can keep making bags, quilts, all my fun little things without having to purchase more fabric…because as we all know funds are a little scarce these days! I can’t wait!!! Will let you know on Monday how it goes.
Xoxo, Emma's mom
