Week 5 of 52 and some happy news!

again, and again, I didn't get out much this week.  Colorado was frozen, and we basically had to stay in.  At first, it was fun.  And then it began to eat at the soul.

Day before the freeze, we went to the park.  It was a dark day for my Kelsey.


The girls needed projects to do, which made more mess than I could handle...but I tried. Can you believe these are 8 year old hands?  Madison has such confidence in her sewing abilities. Unfortunately, her cat kept getting up and pulling at the string.  We gave up and she worked on her scarf project by hand.  ...She is wearing socks, made into gloves in one second, on her hands!  I did love those socks!


I worked on some LOVE letters this week for my Sunday Workshop.  I am not ready for it!  


and I snapshot!

  1. those totally don't look like 8 yr old hands! they're so pretty & elegant & not babyish.

  2. I wish I know how to sew! That's definitely one craft I am really sad that I don't know how to do :(

  3. I give private sewing lessons, and I have to say, that 8 years old is the perfect age to start-- old enough to handle the responsibility, yet young enough to not be afraid of failing or making mistakes (which happens too often in adults!).
    I love the angle on the picture (and the story about the cat with the thread- mine do the same thing!)

  7. I love how you encourage your daughter to be so creative! My mother was the same way! I learned to cross stitch at an early age and then learned to sew. I now really enjoy quilting although I don't have much time for it as I would like. Those letters look fabulous!! What are you going to do with them!

  13. To answer your question, there are to ways to do it. first when you create a post go to the tab that says edit html and post the button in there. or you can right click and save the picture and then include it in your post but hyperlink it. does that make sense?

  14. Congrats on the inclusion in Somerset, that is so wonderful! The LOVE letters are awesome too. And it's so nice to see young girls show an interest in sewing. It's such a valuable skill to have. My daughter never showed much interest when she was young.

  17. Danielle,

    I am so sorry I am just replying to the comment you left me regarding the Disney half marathon and your training. I know that has nothing to do with your current post, but I don't have your email address.

    Here is my email address amboleslie@gmail.com. Shoot me an email and I will send some pointers your way. I know the overwhelmed feeling, but I had never ran more than 3 miles (neither had my sister) before we began training for our first half.

    BTW, cool stuff!!!
