New Hobby

So, for my birthday, Jerr bought me a sewing machine. It took me a while to get the hand of it, but now I really enjoy it. So far I have made Eden's bumper pads, aprons for Christmas gifts for mom, Jennifer, Suzy, Marleen,

and Jeremy's mom, and this cute little pin cushion caddie. Next I need to make a few more things for Eden's room. Then I am going to try to recover a rocking chair...big scary project. (Look at me getting to be all domestic. he he) I have found an artist that I really love. Anna Maria Horner. She designs amazing fabrics and just came out with a book "Seams to Me." It is really a big help and inspiration. She is a blogger, too if anyone wants to check her out...really creative.

Tree Popsicles?

This pretty little red bird is just sitting outside my office window...right in the middle of the mass of trees covered in ice. Brought a smile to my face on such a dreary day. So cold with rain coming down constantly. Very glad to be indoors. About to cook a hot dinner...maybe watch a movie or play a game with the kids.

Brother is Funny

Here is Eden laughing at Gaven. All he has to do is walk into the room and hit something (preferrably his self) or make a funny noise and she will belly laugh. I caught the tail-end of it here. (Notice Vivie not all that amused laying on the couch under the blanket. First graders are too cool...and too tired after a long day of school to laugh at such nonsense.)
