One on Me!

Okay - so the pants I wore the other day were 2 sizes smaller than I normally wear and I've probably only lost enough weight to wear pants that are 1 size smaller than I normally wear, so I pull my cell phone out of my pocket and discover that I've taken 34 pictures of the inside of my pocket.

Stop Laughing.

Happy Holidays,

It was an ORANGE weekend...

I've written before about the Girl's weekends that I
attend. This one was slightly different. Several of
my sisters, our daughters and daughters-in-law
were invited to bring a 12 inch square- the only
restriction being that it should contain the color orange.
What an assortment!

We laid the squares out, pieced them together and added a border, backing and binding. Then we hung the finished piece on the log wall of our cabin. It will stay there- a memory of our ORANGE weekend. It is such a privilege to be a part of a multi-generational group of women who laugh and cry together and create art rather unintentionally!
From left to right the blocks are from me, my sister Linda, my sister Bonnie, a group scrappy creation made on the spot to complete our nine-patch, my niece Kari, my sister Mari, my niece Amanda, my daughter Rachel and my daughter-in-law Erin.

Here's a close-up of the work of Rachel and Erin-

aren't they amazing?

Goofy Hats

One of the things I've been doing the last few years is at least one hat for everybody. My DH actually wears his for snowplowing, etc. Great- isn't it?

I like them to be goofy- so this week I'm doing some thinking about the hats for this year.

Easter at the Cabin

Three little boys and a batch of cinnamon roll dough - a match made in heaven. Those are my hands in the right corner with the LARGE cup of coffee! We had such a good time, I got knitting done and the rolls were really very good. It won't be very much longer before we can take all four of the boys- Ethan is getting close!
