Here is what I get when Dad tells them to smile for me.
Man child #2 finally cracks somewhat of a smile and darling daughter #2 just loves to have her picture taken. She'll start to pose if she even thinks you might be thinking of getting out the camera.
Ok on to the cool stuff I made. This is a cell phone cozy for man child #1. He has to keep his cell phone in his locker during school hours so I thought a cozy would be good to keep it from getting scratched up. This is the first time I've ever made anything so small and I've only made tote bags and a few quilted bags before this. So even though the flap is too wide, I'm pretty proud of it. I think he likes it too.
I was really happy to finally get to use those cute little snaps that I figured I would just keep forever.
And this is a hand bag I made with the intention of gifting or selling it, but I really like it and am thinking of keeping it.
These are the little zipper bags that match it. And I'm thinking of making my own matching cell phone cozy LOL!

This is a cute little baby quilt with pillow that I made for a new mommy that goes to my mom's church. It's my own overall design using printed fabrics.
...I put away a lot of stuff. But then I decided- awe, who am I kidding!! This is as good as it gets!!
And yes all that clutter at the back of the room is boxes of umm "junk" I haven't unpacked from the move yet. We have those lovely little piles all throughout the house. You don't even want to see my foyer!! Someday I swear we will really unpack it all!!! We moved from a 900 square foot house to a 4,000 square foot house. Sooo the cluttery patches here and there don't seem to bother us at all. LOL Well..... YET!!!
This is Brownie and Blueberry. They are two male brothers and almost as spazzy as our Spazzy. Anyway they have been a joy. However, we still missed Spazz.
THEN.....as you saw in my previous post, nearly two months later while my boys were out one evening building a basketball goal, they spotted a patch of yellow in the distance. Upon investigation they came in the house, grinning ear to ear, and simply stated, "Mom we found Spazz." I couldn't believe it. He looked so different I wasn't sure it was him at first, but then when I ran my hand over his crooked tail I knew. WOW!!! Our Spazzy is back home. And now we have three indoor cats!!! Oh well! You can tell from the following photos how thin he got and how his fur isn't quite as healthy as it used to be. Oh well maybe I should disappear for a couple months and come back with half my weight gone LOL!! And there he is right back to his favorite sleeping spot--on top of my latest quilting project!!
See how they drilled holes in the back board hoping to allow the Kansas wind to blow through it without knocking it down. Ingenious!!! right? Well just two days after putting up the new basketball goal we had a huge storm and look what happened :( I feel so bad for them. They were really disappointed after all that work, but then my oldest looks at his brother and says with a huge grin on his face, "Hey, I have a new plan!!" I haven't seen the new plan yet, but I'll keep you posted.
