Playing Catch-Up

Wow, I can't believe how time has been flying. There just aren't enough hours in the day to do all the things that I want to do in a day.

We've been enjoying the warmer weather around here. I've been watching the snow melt and seeing more and more grass in the yard.

There really hasn't been much new going on around here. Ella only has three days of school this week then has the rest of the week and the following week off for spring break. Hopefully the weather cooperates and we can be outside for some of the time.

I've been busy playing with my new toys!!

I purchased a new serger and absolutely LOVE IT!! Then my sewing machine seemed sub-par (sorry grandma) and needed an upgrade. I found this one on clearance at Target and also LOVE IT!! Both machines work so nicely and I don't have to stop and fix this or adjust that and saves so much time. The serger has made sewing things so much faster and the seams are all so clean and neat. There are many different things that I need to learn on it, but I can do the basics for now.

I made this dress for Ella last night.

It turned out really well and if you could see the inside also you would see that it was very neat. :)

She wanted to wear it and I explained that it's for the summer and needs to be warmer outside. She wondered what was taking summer so long to get here. I didn't have a good answer...

I'm excited to get my seeds started in the next week or so. I really can't wait to get my garden growing this year. I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but I'm really looking forward to it!

Well, like I've said there really hasn't been much going on around here. I've been baking a little bit. Made a really large cake sized cookie and frosted it. (See photos on other blog.) We decided that it was corner's birthday so we had a little party. Lit a candle and sang happy birthday. Sam was very sad that it wasn't puppy's birthday, so we re-lit the candle and sang happy birthday to puppy too. The kids had a fun time. I had a fun time eating the cookie cake!

The banana bread was great we went the dark chocolate chips route and I loved it. We also are anxious for warm weather, today it was cloudy and wet all day with tomorrow looking the same. Nice machines you got and Ella looks cute in the dress. So "corner" had a birthday party along with puppy. Sounds like a fun time was had by everyone. Hope Ella's ear is ok.
