It's been about a week


Steve left last Tuesday so we have made it through our first week....I think the first few days are always the hardest...and the kids and I agree we have done good.
I had fun working on some crafts this weekend. Last week I bought the cutest paper with rainboots on it. Fitting given our weather this past week...and I am even married to a weather forecaster. I love the saying on these 'Rainbows apologize for angry skies'.

Now I am really excited about this!!! I have been craving to quilt something with bright colors. And I did it! I did all of it. I did the quilting and my very own binding...it's not nearly as hard as I thought.
I put a bright color on the back too.

LOVE that little quilt...what fun Springy colors! And that paper is to die for cute! I'm obsessed with my scallop punches, too.

Have a wonderful week, Jeni. I'm thinking about you!

I love the new quilt Jeni! You still need to explain how you do it so quickly??? The rainboots cards are my favorite! Where did you think up the saying? I am glad you survived the first week! You are an amazing gal. Thanks for inspiring me!
