Over the weekend we had the christening of our newest grandson. It is always a delight and a great reason to celebrate.
Monday we had three sons in Las Vegas for a big food and beverage convention so DH and I drove over, met them for dinner, donated a few dollars and drove home the next morning. I was disappointed that the desert flowers were not in bloom yet as we both love to see the showy colors. Guess it was a bit early for them.
|I love this lobby. Don't you think the floor would make a great quilt?|
Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining several of the grandchildren and my daughter at the zoo. It is always such fun to see little eyes in wonderment. They have just opened up a new reptile and invertebrate display and it is wonderful. You feel as though you are swimming with the turtles.
|This little guy is 6 months old and had captured the hearts of all. Gotta love the wind blown hair!|
We celebrated several birthdays in the family this week as well.
|Mr. J is eight.|
|Seems like only yesterday our first son was born.|
|I would so love to be able to wear a hat so beautifully.|
My March mug rug arrived from my partner, Shari Butler. I like the fact that it is not specifically for St. Patrick's Day and I can leave it out past that day. I tried to do a similar thing with my own partner's mug rug. I just love the fabrics and the design of the one Shari sent me. Shari is a fabric and textile designer and has a wonderful blog with her fabrics shown.
Also arriving in the mail this week was this wonderful selection of threads from Connecting Threads. I won these in a giveaway hosted by Stephanie at Loft Creations. The colors are so rich and beautiful and will really come in handy with my sewing.
