Headlines

Today is my birthday and I am blessed with a little time to myself while Henry is out at the park with a babysitter. So, I'm not going to spend a lot of time blogging. I'll just cover the headlines, instead.

We had a fun Easter weekend. We may or may not get an egg kit again next year, but we are definitely adding the googly eyes and markers to all future egg decorating adventures.

This may be the homeliest and cutest hippo ever.

In sewing news, I'm up to 90 blocks for my Farmer's Wife quilt. Ninety!

I think they work together, too!

NINETY!!

Lastly, I spend a little time each birthday looking around me at the things I accomplished in the past year.  This cutie right here makes me one proud momma.

That's the brief recap of the news over here. I hope you all have a grand day. I know I plan to.

Happy birthday, Melinda! I hope this year is rewarding, creative, productive, and fun -- the best yet.

And I *love* your blocks! The first thing that jumped out at me was the use of blue, especially those really rich royal-ish, teal-ish blues. Lovely.

Enjoy your day :)
