catching up with fall

here are some of the fall pics we took that never got posted. I think these turned out super cute!

more catching up...

here are some winter pics and the kids making snowmen.

I'm back, with lot's to catch you up on!

I finally got a laptop and can post all my recent pics. I've felt like a limb has been cut off without having been connected via internet for so long. I moved to a new rental, which I like alot more than the previous one, (which isn't saying much). I've been sewing alot and have some pics of my latest projects. I've also been inspired to start some new craft ideas thanks to Jeff. I may or may not post these depending on how they turn out, lol.

Here are my recent sewing projects.

some bibs for a friends baby.

a pillow for Ireland

a pillow for Colin, I posted the front and back, which I needle pointed from a poem he wrote about a snowman.

a quilt for Colin made from his baseball t shirts. with matching pillows.

a cable knit purse for me made from an old sweater.

and a dress and matching booties from vintage sheets for my niece. The sheets and buttons belonged to my late aunt.

Currently, I'm working on a tote for Ireland made from her fave sleep shirt.

Totally 80's

Ireland celebrated her 11th birthday in 80's style. We crimped our hair, donned our leggings, and rocked out to Bon Jovi and Madonna! It was hosted by my super talented cousin and the benefit was getting to visit with my family whom I haven't seen for awhile. We drove to Tennessee for the party. What a gorgeous drive through the mountains. On the way home, we stopped in Asheville for lunch at a super cute cafe with Jenny and Madison. I have dreamed of lunching in North Carolina with them for almost five years now. It was a fantasy of mine come true. I love when that happens. Now we are focusing on starting school and work and getting back on schedule.

In The Kitchen

Ireland and I were in the kitchen this week baking up some goodies. Chocolate Pound Cake with Walnuts and Glaze and Chocolate Cupcakes split with Strawberry Ice Cream. We also made some Birdseed Biscuits Bird Feeders for the birdies and squirrels to hang from trees in the back yard. My kitchen is so tiny that I can't even open the oven door all the way, but I managed to get some baking done somehow.

Movie Day

My sister In Law and I took the kids to the movies today to see Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs in 3D! We had so much fun and the 3D effects were so cool. The best part was watching Chloe fall through the crack in the chair since she's so small. We had a great day. I'm really going to miss this stuff most when I'm gone.

Sew Crafty!

Ok, I am finally posting a pic of my recent sewing venture. A summer top and some cute birdies I plan to attach to branches in a tree. The last is a pic of my knitted beret. It's just so soft and yummy, I can't wait to wear it this fall!
