Puttering Through the Week

Somehow I don't feel like I am getting very much done in
my sewing room...
but I did happen to finish up this baby quilt.
I shared the one I had made... a girl version a few weeks ago
 so I thought I would make another one,
 for a baby boy but it really turned out to be boyish and not so much babyish.
I decided that it doesn't really matter. I can always wait until the
baby is a year or so old and then give it to him!

The kids were home for a few days and I got to have
some quality time with the baby. Six weeks old now.
I thought I would share a picture of the new family
(although you can't see Evie very well)
that was taken at "family day" for the hot shot crew.

Yes, that is my son and Jilly Bean with the baby.
I can't wait for her to know that her dad is Smokey!

One thing that I haven't gotten to yet is my Pocket Patchwork, busy work.
Pam Buda gave us patterns week by week. I need to add the final border.
I saw several on-line and they are all gorgeous.
Now I just need to catch up a little.

I seem to have neglected to wish the hubs a very very
happy birthday! A very special birthday indeed!
We will be taking him over to the lake tonight for
a relaxing evening of family together in the favorite
corner of our backyard!
