The weekend went by so fast... I can't believe everything we did: we went hiking, and the girls did great for an hour long power walk that went mostly up hill. We also went to the playground, and for dinner we went downtown where I had the second best vegetarian ravioli (the best are my father-in -law's butternut squash and spinach ravioli.) Clara attended a birthday party looking great in one of the girl sets that I made, and she gave as a present one of our bags filled with goodies.
Where has time gone ??? She has grown so fast...
I wonder for how long she is going to like what I make so much... she makes me feel so happy with her acceptance.
I also went crazy with the pillowcases on Saturday. I used the fairy fabrics that my sister in law sent me, and added some other fabrics. I used my trusty manual to make the "Simple Pillowcase" : Last-Minute Patchwork+ Quilted Gifts.
I finished the pillowcases this morning at 6:30 am after waking up with my head full of "first day of school worries." They are for the girl's beds but I took this picture of them on my bed with my thumb sucking baby.
Now, feeling very satisfied from my "crafty-family-work out-and-eat all the calories back again weekend," I'm off to prepare for my mom and sister's visit. They will be here tomorrow morning. Finally, we'll have them all for ourselves for six days. Since I'm the oldest of four children (twelve and seventeen years older than my siblings,) it's almost impossible to have my mom to myself for a few days.
Have a great week.
