Trying Harder

Boy, I sure don’t know where the time goes.  This spring is flying by, and it has really taken a toll on my blog.  My postings have been few and far between.   I will try harder to get back here with more frequency, I promise!  

I have had two baby gifts in the recent weeks that I put together.  I have another coming up at the beginning of May where I think I will do more of the same.  I’ve been trying to use only from stash, yet make them coordinated, and so far, so good.

DSCN5419For this set, I made a flannel receiving blanket, three burp pads, a knit washcloth, the bunny from Wee Wonderfuls, and then added a purchased crib sheet, and board book.  I didn’t take a picture of the second gift, but it was similar with a blanket, bunny, burp pads, a bib, and a photo book for mom.  I love making baby gifts…they are so sweet.

We also took a trip back to IL to see family during April vacation.  On our way back, we stopped off at Saratoga Historical National Park in Stillwater, NY.  Hubby is a big history buff, and even though the kids groan and moan about stopping to see “another one of dad’s history places,”  they always enjoy it.  It was a beautiful park, and a beautiful day, I wish we had had more time to spend there.


DSCN5533Well, I think spring has fully and finally arrived.  The lilacs are just beginning to bloom here, and we are supposed to have gorgeous weather for the upcoming weekend.  I hope wherever you are, the sun is shining and flowers are blooming!  Happy Spring!
