Capricious and I went to the craft market and I got a candle that smells like a blueberry muffin and a metal pig for the front yard (isn't he cute)! Capricious also found Chase a giant caterpillar - it is seriously the size of my pinky! Anyone know what kind it is???
Chase "graduated" from preschool today (not sure how I feel about a graduation for every year but it seems to be the trendy thing now a days). Honestly I felt rather out of place in my jeans and sweater given that all the other moms were in teeny tiny little dresses / full make up / and heels. Not to mention all the grandparents that had flown in for the event?! I suppose I don't really fit in with the moms at Chase's school - granted I couldn't even motivate myself to go to my own high school or college graduations so maybe me and graduations just don't mix. Chase had a good time although he was rather over stimulated by the event which resulted in some wild and silly behavior. We ended the morning with lunch with Pops and a quick Skylanders level - the perfect way to wrap up a school year (or as Chase would say "only until Tuesday" when summer school starts).
Chase has been so jealous that I have been sewing and making stuff to sell (or in his mind for other people) and he keeps asking when I am going to make him something so I whipped up this little embroidered pillow for him. It gave me a good excuse to try the applique feature on my machine too!
If you live in the Denver area and are looking for a fun kids activity I highly recommend Mid Air adventure. It has a few climbing walls and more importantly a bunch of zip lines. Chase was a little nervous at first but ended up having a blast.
I made my first white on white baby quilt with lime green and electric blue binding. The pictures don't really do the quilt justice it is cuter in person. I was a little bummed that the detail is so hard to see. Not sure if it is because the flowes are too far apart or if it is because I used warm and natural batting and the quilt is crinkly or if that is just the nature of white on white. It would be a cute table runner but for the next quilt I will probably use colored thread.
One of my neighbors is having a baby girl and they decided on a peachy pink nursery so I made them this baby quilt. I am in love with the backing fabric and the brown polka dot binding is so fun. Every baby girl needs a quilt like this right?
