Other bits and pieces.

Hey there all! Spring has finally sprung around here. I am so thrilled! We have been growing a pumpkin plant, the kids and I that is. It's flowering and they are just beyond pleased with their little green thumbs. Each day we check the progress, and I must say I find it pretty cool! They grow so quickly! I'll have to post pics soon!

Aside from that I have been having fun with scraps! I made these darling 'scripture bags' for the various kids in our lives. Evan, Vienna, their cousins, friends birthday gifts etc. They are meant for puting their scriptures in for church, but really it's a cute little tote that they can pack around treasures in too.


These little birds are just so quick and fun! I have discovered however since making them that the tails should be left UN- stuffed. But oh well. I made these violet beauties for my neice. I found the pattern for free through Knack, which linked to Design Sponge, which linked to Spool! Where you can find the full write up and pics of how gorgeous these can really look!! Just click HERE.

I just finished another quilt last night. I'm going to take some pics today and she should be ready for presenting soon!! Happy Easter weekend! I'm sure we'll have pics and such to share in the coming week. For now I'm just going to focus on keeping the kids on a low grade sugar high while I teach them more about Christ and the true meaning of Easter!

Those would be a great baptism gift too. You are just a little bit too creative for my blood. Hey, I'm going to be in Calgary for the summer... starting in two weeks. Give me a call - we'll be at my moms.
