the craft post...finally

Ok, so this isn't crafting really, but I wanted to show some more of Aubie's artwork. The first is one of her trees with some water and the sun. The second is Matthan with his tongue out and Aubie standing behind him sticking her tonge out as well. (Their mouths are both really open and that dot in the middle is the tongue.)

This was back in June for Renee's son Daniel's birthday. I got the shield, sword, and helmet ridiculously cheap, but each piece only had one jewel, so I added some. I made the knight shirt and then recycled a diaper box to put all of his armor in.
This is my first attempt at hand embroidery and it wasn't as hard as I thought. I made this bag to put Jill's quilt in that I made for her 6th birthday.
This is a close up of one of the ballerinas.
The quilt. In the middle square, the quilting is actually Jill's initials, but you wouldn't be able to see that from this picture. Also, all of this fabric is from my stash! I was so happy to be able to make something so cool (not bragging, just happy) from stuff I already had. It kind of inspired me to start doing that more often instead of buying for each project.

More of Aubie's artwork (why won't this let me stop underlining?). This is a picture of Arthur.

This is a picture of me, Aubie, Matthan, David, and Daniel (in that order). The long haired one is me. It is one of my favorite pictures of myself--I love my expression and how my hair is blowing in my face. One would be tempted to think that the person on the opposite side would be David and the other one Daniel, until you look at the expression. The one on the end definitely has Daniel's smile. : )

At birthday parties, showers, or anywhere that gifts are exchanged, I always look forward to the ones from you (or your kids) the most. They are always so creative and beautiful! The kids love playing with the knight costume and "treasure chest" and Jill loves snuggling into her ballerina quilt.

It looks like Aubie's already on track to be creative just like her mommy :) I love having her in Sunday school because she always has adds something interesting to our discussion or coloring time.

David finally has a "big" head! Ha-ha! Has he seen it?
