ALYOF - April Finishes

Image
My goal forAprilwas to create something out of this awesome fabric! The fabric reminds me of the Russian Olympics (lots of pizzaz)
and beautiful colors! Well I completed my goal and just got it back from the quilter, my wonderful friend, Irene Hensley, (love the hearts),
my only problem is it is not ready to be revealed.

So, here is a corner to prove I made the goal.
I did make something of the fabric and soon all shall be revealed.

Second item I completed this month was making Zoey an Easter dress. If you want an easy pattern that turns out beautiful I highly recommend
the Cottage Mama Party Dressand it is a FREE pattern. Read my post here for more details. I love April Showers fabric but now I just need to make her one for May Flowers! Got any suggestions?

About this time was when everything went crazy - both kids got sick, I threw out my back, and I got sick. I had so much to do!
Flat on my back and miserable.
I even threw a pity party (terrible right)!

Happy Easter and 49

Image
Hi All! Well it is official now! I am 49! David told me I wouldn't be old until I was 50, little does he know I feel like a little girl most days playing and learning with him! I am so lucky to have him and the rest of my family. My cousin and his family came to celebrate our birthdays, (his was yesterday), and have Easter together. My youngest daughter and her family will be here tomorrow night. A full house for Easter, I am so grateful. I feel really blessed. It has been a great day in the boon docks today!
Here are my finished Easter bunnies hiding for now for the kids's baskets. These are so cute, you still have time to make one for someone. You can find the pattern and tutorial atRevoluzzza Let Sew It.

If you want some really soft baby yarn this is the greatest. I bought mine at Walmart and JoAnn's The big finish for this week is Zoey's crocheted blanket for her Easter present.

Thank you for stopping by "In The Boon Docks" and have a Happy Easte…

Oh, so much is going on around here this week! Warning, picture heavy! Crocheting

I have decided I am in a learning stage with these new stitches! If they don't look right "rip them out" and start again. Which I did here and I like the sides much better the 4th time around. Thank all of you for your suggestions, I am going to try them! Modern Scrappy Bits Swap on Flickr

I took this mirror and case and jazzed it up a bit. Using a little double sided tape and Robert Kaufman "Cut & Sew" fabric, it makes a perfect little notion to put in with my scraps for my secret swap partner! I still have to make a pouch or a pincushion. I haven't decide which to make. If you know of a good tutorial for either please leave me a comment with a link. I would love to know where you find inspiration. Beans and Butterflies

My mother, David, and I picked beans on Tuesday at my in-laws. Picking beans is a dirty job and it was hot. We yielded about a bushel and a half and s…
