Me time!!!

Yesterday I had some time for me.  Scott stayed with the boys for a couple of hours and I did something I have been wanting to do for some time now.  I tried spinning wool.

I had so much fun - and the lovely ladies from the group lent me a wheel to practice on and some carded wool to try.  I'm not sure how it is going to work with three boys 'helping' but I'm going to give it a try.

Celebrate the Boy

I've been checking out this website for a while but recently had a friend recommend it again so spent a little more time looking around.  At the same time I was planning a pair of pants for Isaiah - just a quick pair of trackies for around the house/farm.  Anyway - I clicked on a link and found these easy pockets so decided to add them to his trackies.  Every boy needs a pocket for his treasures (or a hankie in winter).  I'm in love with the tool fabric.

I put two square pockets on the back as well. Great posing below!!

You may have noticed a green arm in the top photo.  We've had an interesting last week or so, two different hospitals, two casts and one very brave boy.  Check out the green arm - although he doesn't look it in the picture, he was super excited that he was allowed to chose the colour.

30th Gifts

One of my friends had a 30th birthday a while ago and I wanted to make something for her.  I decided that pot holders were the perfect thing.  A matching pair in opposite fabrics.

These are my second go at pot holders and I am really pleased with how these ones turned out.

Happy Birthday friend.
