A few new things

It's spring time on the farm and yesterday we had our first two baby calves. Rebecca was so excited! But she was also a little scared to get too close to the calves.Here are a few new crafty things I did last week. I've made ribbon barrettes before, but I had all the supplies to make more. I also really wanted to try some little flowers. The last "new" thing is Rebecca's bike. Last weekend I went to the thrift store to find her a bike. We actually got two. This plastic 3-wheeler and a real kids bike. One of the training wheels is broken off the real bike, so we have to get new ones. She is still trying to get the hang of pedaling, but she is getting better. She also LOVES her helmet! The day after I got the bikes it snowed 6 inches so we brought the bike inside for the day :)

Spring Break

Yes, I'm on my spring break right now. Monday I was actually very productive and I "spring cleaned" all the bedrooms. But since then, well, I've been less productive ;) I just can't stop thinking about all the things that I would rather be doing than what I am doing.
In reality, I am enjoying myself. I love staying in bed in the morning with Rebecca crawling all over me. We got together with some other friends today and have another outing tomorrow. The weather has been nice enough to play outside and get really muddy. We're having a relaxing spring break.

Here are a few pictures of Rebecca out on the farm. It was so sunny and warm out today!

The ice is almost melted off the pond.

Daddy's little farm girl!

More little projects

I'm having a lot of fun with small sewing projects lately. It's a good stress reliever - gives me something else to thing about than the things that are stressing me out.

Here is a bag I made for my nephew Josh who just turned one! I bought the tote and just lined it and sewed a pocket on the front.

This is a blanket I made for baby Kennedy due to arrive on the 17th to my friend Bev.
This last bag I made for Rebecca. She picked out the fabric and calls the monkey "George" becasue he is her favorite. It's her new church bag and is just the right size for a few books, paper and pencil, and a treat. I love making these little bags!

Some more sewing

Here are a few other little projects that I have done lately. I made these for a friend and her new little girl. I love the monkey fabric!I also made my first tag blanket. I wasn't sure on the dementions (it's about an 9 inch sqaure), but it came together very nicely! I also finished another project last night, but it is another gift for someone who reads this blog, so I will post it later :)
