New fabric

Ya know how I used to be addicted to paper & couldn't resist buying it all the time? Well, now my obsession is fabric. I went to Hancock fabrics with momma yesterday & of course I couldn't leave empty handed! Here are my new fabrics.

Ball practice at the park

Anthony had Friday evening ball practice at Kiroli Park so we all went to enjoy the nice weather. Anna Catherine loves being outside but does not love to stay in one place! Here are some pictures of my busy little girl. My favorite is the one of her playing patty cake with Joey.

My new toy is here!!!

My new embroidery machine arrived this afternoon just after 3pm, which meant no time to play for a while since the boys needed snacks & homework help before heading out to the ballpark for a few hours. After ballgaming, supper, & baths, I went ahead & started looking at the instruction manual. It was very scary! I took my time & followed the directions, though, and ended up with a nice test project -- a bib for Anna Catherine showing love for our church. Can't wait to let her wear it!

Flower picking

Here's my sweet little girl playing in the grass today. I gave her a little yellow flower & she studied it very carefully before ripping the flower off the stem.

My new toy is on its way!

I finally did it--I ordered an embroidery machine Saturday evening! I'm super excited & can't wait to get it. The estimated delivery date was April 26-May 1, so I figured I would have it next week. Last night I got an email saying it shipped & should be here April 26! I'll be sure to come back & post when it arrives but for now I need to get ahead on some housework so I can maybe take it out of the box this weekend :)

My awesome ball players

Here are my cutie pie boys at the ballpark last night! They both lost their games, but I still think they're awesome!

My newly organized craft space

I have spent the last 3 days pulling out & going through every little craft item I have in hopes of purging some items & organizing the rest. I haven't organized the sewing desk yet, but I have pictures of my desk area & the closet. Now I have all the items grouped by type so (theoretically) I can find things when I need them. I've gotten behind on my housework so I can't stay and type long. Here are the pictures!

Easter weekend workday

We traveled up to Little Rock for Easter weekend since Mike & Gina invited us & my parents. We didn't realize my brother had a mini yard workday planned! Here are some pictures of the boys helping unload dirt from the trailer.

Craft time at MOPS

This week at our MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) meeting we made a craft. They provided canvases, paint, paper, etc & told us to make whatever we wanted. Here are some pictures of my finished canvas. I had so much fun!
