I Love this one with Ryan. Howard is sound asleep with that bone in his mouth and snoring.

Oh Good Lord! Look at the carnage! That poor pathetic "bush" was once a gorgeous Butterfly Bush!!!! Do you see the branches all over the ground????
This is what made me think there might be trouble...
Do you see the giant branch in his mouth and the bits all over the deck? Yeah. Good times. He's very sorry now though.
Soooo...Even though they are calling for maybe some snow (cross my fingers so that I don't have to go to class tonight) I'm thinking more about spring. I'm working on this little quilt today.
I also have a quilt I made for Kellie that still needs all the beading done to it. I'd like to have both of these finished by the end of this weekend. I have some other things that I'm anxious to start working on, but I promised Kellie...first things first...She doesn't mess around!
This is the quilt Kellie is waiting for to hang by her bed. I colored the background of this little quilt and then used hand dyed floss to stitch the entire thing. Now I have to go back and do all the beading which is always my favorite part.
I used these crayons to color the background and draw the flower...
Very fun. I've used them a lot when I don't want to hand dye the fabric. I painted the background of this little valentine I made last year using regular ol' craft acrylic paints. It was really fun.

I decided that I should just sit in my fleece and drink coffee all day and work on this for my blog header. I think that makes for a very productive day. Much more fun than say...cleaning. I love working with felted wool and beads. They are my two most favorite things.
We had a good weekend. The kids were on a school break from Thursday - Monday. Mark stayed home Monday, too so we all went out to breakfast and later in the day Mark and I visited our favorite shop in town.We bought this little white feather tree from there the day after Christmas. We decided to keep it up all year and just change the decorations for each season/holiday. I had it decorated for winter, but since it's almost Valentine's Day I decided to add some red hearts. I think this is such a great tree.

1. Start a blog....a
2. Start stitching more...we'll see.
I have so many little quilts and pillows in my head that I need to just stop being so distracted and get to work on them. I'm hoping that this blog will get me motivated. I've decided that in order for me to be happy, I must set time aside for me...for what I want...for what I need. Hard to do with a family, but I'm determined. This year will be a great year.
