Total Self Indulgent Post

Finn 1 and Maddy 8

For a few days this week I was hanging out with these two sweethearts. My daughter was not feeling well so I came over to give her a hand. Maddy had field hockey camp and Finn is a 15 month old who has no intention of sitting still! A handful when you don't feel good.

Maddy loves arts and crafts so mom mom delivered! She has been wanting to do the melted crayons that have been on Pinterest forever. While ours did not turn out exactly like the ones on Pinterest, she loved doing it and we had a good time.

This was our Van Gogh day. She used oil pastels in school and wanted to use them on our project. She was the teacher and I was the student......I loved how these turned out and we plan on doing it again some day. Kids have a great eye for colors . We also cut out parts for a quilt that I will show you later.

Finn was happy trying on his sister's flip flops and testing all the new words he is saying. He is such a good boy.

Jaxon almost 11 months old

Cameron almost 11 months old
I did get to see the boys last week and they are growing so fast! Cam is about ready to walk with Jax not too far behind. They are such good natured boys. Cam looks just like his daddy as the same age.

Not a lot of sewing going on but these colors make me happy!

I was hoping to have this ready to show by the weekend. It's going to be one of the auction quilts for our quilts show in May of 2017. Maybe it will be done next week!
Happy Independence Day!
