Helping hands

I helped on both of these quilts. The baby girl one was for Jill's baby. Melissa had all the fabric in her stash and we both worked on it. Melissa did a great job quilting it, I think she is getting really good.
The tool quilt is the work of Dayna, my mother-in-law. She had the tool fabric for years. We went to the store and found a sweet deal on the black and tan fabric, I think it was like $2.75 a yard. I helped come up with the design and the top. Dayna did all the quilting and binding. I really am impressed with how well she did.

Happy St. Patrick's day

Brittany found this cute skirt. I want to make one in every color.

Baby Erik or Dane or Chirstian or whatever his name will be

Brittany picked out this cute fabric. My sister-in-law loves blue, gray, black, and brown. So when we found this fabric it was like it was made for her and her soon to be baby boy. I bought some of it and came up with this cute baby quilt. I love pinwheels for baby boys and I left the seams out so the he could rub his face on it (my baby loves to touch her blanky until she falls a sleep). I had the quilter quilt animals in it. I think the back looks so awesome it really matches the front. I really love how this turned out.

Garden time

I hope I get a little luck from the Irish since I started this green garden on St. Patty's day. I hand tilled one of my three garden beds. I planted onions, carrots, 2 kinds of lettuce, peas, swiss chard, spinach. I still need to get broccoli and cabbage starts, they were not in the farm store yet. I planted some marigolds indoors in a egg carton. We will see what will come up in a few weeks. Befor and after garden beds.

skirt for gracie girl.

My first skirt for Gracie girl. It turned out good, a little big but that's better than a little small. It was also my first time editing the photos, they aren't all the same. I hope with a little practice I will get better at both.

Spring is Commin

We have these little spring gems popping out, telling us spring is on its way. The kids and I are so happy to see them. Wyatt is a goof in this photo. In the last two photos is my new flower bed we built late last fall. I only was able to move a few flowers from my front yard. With the move I got one little lonely yellow crocuse. I am so excited to get this flower bed going. I wish I had a money tree next to the flower bed in the yard. But with a little hard work and help from my neighbor. My plan is to get some starts from her yard and move some from my front yard. So we will just have to see at the end of the summer.
