How I Caught the Easter Bunny

This is the video I made to show the girls that the Easter Bunny was here, as requested by my little one.  I didn't say anything so they won't recognize my voice.
She was thrilled when she saw it in the morning.  The big one had a couple of questions that I just answered with he was hiding. Paper ears taped on a headset.  I am so glad I made her happy.

A Little Bit of Scraping

Part of what I have been scrapbooking is My Life Story so this week I made my binder cover page and the spine. 
Binder Cover
This picture was taken when I was 40, so 26 years ago. 
Binder Spine
Inside I have dividers for each decade plus the year I was married.  On the front of the divider page is a What Happened in that year and on the back is my Time Line for everything that happened in that decade.  On my Time Lines I included things like where I lived, if we moved, school, jobs, births and deaths, and occasionally a historical fact.  I just had a thought I guess I could do a few more of those.  Well that is a project for another day.


I look like I an ready to take the world on sitting
on the back of the Lion in Detroit.





I still have to find a picture for this one. I have lots of boxes of pictures to go through to find one.
Time Line 1968
  This has been a fun project but I have a lot of work left to do!!
Happy Easter!!
Have fun quilting, scraping and just living!!!
PS I forgot to mention where I purchased the What Happen in Year pages, here is the link to Family Tree Stalker.

A Little Bit of Quilting

I was able to do a couple of more rows of tying Mr. B.'s quilt.  I had plans to get to it again the next day but I suddenly became busy filling out adoption papers and running around getting them some of them signed by health providers and notarized.  What a lot of work and that is only one set, I have another set to do.
So here is a picture of the progress on Mr. B's quilt.
Do you notice both borders are visible and I can even see my fabric I use to pin the quilt to the frame.  Yup I am that close.  I think about 5 more rows to tie!!
I need to finish this next project first since it needs to be at the shop for our meet and greet the teachers and it is a class sample.  The meet and greet is next Saturday the 26th.

It is basted and I have actually quilted a couple rows in the center, not shown here.
Well I have to go play Easter Bunny, the girls asked me to set my camera to video the bunny.  I am not sure how I am going to do that and not give it away. I guess I need some paper ears!  
Here is a link to a wonderful Easter video with the
true meaning of Easter. Enjoy!

More Vine Work

I was bored with sewing on buttons so I started embroidering some leaves.  Here is my progress so far. Only three more sides to go! 

I scanned this and I have the one edge too close to the edge of the scanner.   That is why that one border seems so narrow. 
Look what I started!
Ever since I started working on this, I have been thinking this will look so great in 30's fabric.  Look at it, it is so cute in 30's.  I am trying to decide if I like the blue or the purple better for the inside border.  I am leaning towards the purple.  Purple is my second favorite color and blue is my first. 
One of my friends said the blue looks like me
and the purple looks like Easter. 
I really don't want an Easter look. 
Leave a comment and tell me which one you like better.

My Vine is Growing

Or maybe I should say, my vine is growing some button flowers.
Here is my progress this week on my Baby Steps. 
I have also been playing in EQ7 as I have my monthly club today.  We are working with Patch Draw and learning how to draw a circle quilt from the EQ book Quilt Designs.
Plus it was just a plan old busy week. 
Have fun!! Quilting, Scraping and Living!!
