Gracie Ice Skating

Gracie's friend Malena is taking ice skating lessons, and she invited Gracie to her last lesson today.
Gracie had never been ice skating, and had a great time. Thanks Malena!!!This is Malena's little brother Andy, he's got to be one of the cutest kids ever!

Backyard Fun

This is how we spent our afternoon and evening on Sunday after church. It was a beautiful day and lots of fun!
A little air guitar--Check out the tan line on the back of that boy's neck!

YW Gratitude Journals

At our church I work with the Young Women who are 16-18 years old. Last week I taught a lesson on Finding Joy Now. At the end of the lesson I gave each of the girls this notebook that I remade, to use as a Gratitude Journal. I added a page with a personal note to each girl, and also some great quotes for them to keep in mind. I love how they turned out, and they were pretty simple to do. And just how cute is that tiny gel pen I found to go with each one?

In My Pretty Garden

Here is my latest finish. I actually made the quilt top the end of last year, but I've just finally got it a back, quilted and bound.
It's cheerful huh?I love the back. These fabrics are from the line "Posh". You gotta love that name.
We have a family reunion coming up the end of the month. We always have an auction to raise money for the next reunion. I'm planning on donating a quilt. I wonder if it should be this one???

On another note--My Mother-in-law can not have her ears pierced. Finding any clip earrings is so hard. I've been on a mission to make her some fun clips. This is what I gave her for Mother's Day. Sorry about the blurry pictures.

Look how cute the Pinwheels turned out!
I think I might like this one even more than the ZigZag. (Don't tell the ZigZag.) I quilted this one in the same corally thread, but with an all over loops. This quilt really has a fun and playful look to it.
I just wish I had some twin baby girls to wrap up in them, but since I don't, they are both off to my Shop.
