Mixing it up

Sometimes I like to mix it up. Instead of making a pregnant women a baby blanket with ties. I made my friend, three sheet like super thin soft, baby blankets. She just had a baby, so she has a summer of swaddling?! How does swaddling work in the summer? I don't know I decided thin baby blankets are the way to go. I've only had winter babies.
She wrote me the nicest thank you note. Something to the effect of at the previous baby shower we were both at (for a different girl) she thought I was so funny so she decided she had to become my friend. I really appreciated that, because I always feel so out spoken at showers, I talk WAY too much.

About a month after the shower

I finished this blanket only about a month late.

Yes, this is basically all I do. Make baby blankets, with two kids I don't have anytime to do anything other than make presents for everyone who is reproducing.

Mother's Day cards

These are the cards we made for grandma's for Mother's Day, it was last weeks family home evening. I made the photo corners so the grandmas could frame the picture if they so choose, or just keep it on the card. It was a PAIN! I thought the corners would be fairly easy, but after 16 corners, I wanted to cry. I took little squares and folded them diagonal twice, so they you get a triangle, and glue them together except for one of the pockets, then glued the back on to the card. When you opened it up inside there was a pocket holding more pictures. Plus a card that said Happy Mother's day, inside J signed his name, and I wrote his sister's.

My son's flower arrangement

I think my father in law taught my son to pick weed flowers and give them to me. I love it, it is the only flowers I get. The other day, my son picked these, and wanted to put them in water for me. He picked out my beloved jars.
