What's New

Just thought I'd catch up a bit on what I've been up to since my last post on Valentine's Day. It seemed like February was the month for appointments. We all visited the dentist and got haircuts plus hubby had 3 doctor appointments and I took care of the two visits to the accountant doing our taxes this year. I've been doing our taxes for years (we don't have anything complicated to deal with.) but since we rented my MIL's house for 3 months and it belongs to my husband and his brothers, I didn't want to mess it up.
So in March we had time for more fun things. We took a day trip to Hartford, CT to tour the Mark Twain house and museum. I've wanted to do that for such a long time. For someone like me who loves a lot of detail, this house sure made me happy. All of my photos are of the outside because they don't allow photography, gum, throat drops, lip balm, ink pens, food or drink inside the house. I was surprised that they didn't have us remove our shoes!

Also in February, my oldest nephew announced that he had signed up for 6 years in the Army and was getting married! So I made a cute pink cupcake apron and potholders (Sorry, I forgot to take pictures.)for the bridal shower on March 12th and here's the happy couple a week later. They're so young!

The couple next door to us just had their first baby so I made some bibs. This pair is my own pattern. Is there anything girlier than gingham ruffles?

When I saw this new Simplicity pattern I knew I had to make this pea pod bib. I love those yo-yo peas.

Such a cute pattern!

I wanted to share this photo of my pink violets. My white, purple and yellow violets are still a few weeks away. Can you guess my favorite flower?

Now I need to work on my post showing what I sent to my partner for Sandy's Easter Tag Swap. That way I'll be ready to link up with everyone on the 22nd.
