Doll making,New little quilts.A trip to the dog park

 We have had some busy days.Tuesday Justine and I worked on ,making,some doll faces. She made 2 owl pincushions. There are so many things she wants to do. Many are a little complicated but we will get through them step by step. She has such interest in all things fabric.

 Saturday Ziva and I took a trip to the new dog park. It is very nice and will be even better when the new grass comes up. She got to know Abby,Batman, Cloe,

 The forsythia was beautiful this year.The wind was very strong and took most of the flowers. I cut a branch to put on the porch in the crock.

I have more hexie blocks done. 14 so far.
I saw a block on pinterest and like it .I decided to try to make it.I love how you see one block then see 4.The last picture is of a table topper I was playing around with.I have 300 rail blocks and wanted to play with cutting them up and adding a plain triangle. On the small quilts group they were doing prairie points on a quilt.I used the points on this quilt.They are fun to do. So much for my week so far.Weather is colder than usual. I did get the back patio cleaned off and the Christmas tree gone. Looks really plain back there. Will be glad to get some plants out there to look as while I stitch away. Have a good week.j

Our visit

We had a great time visiting the kids in southern Ia.
 A birthday, lunch at school and a trip to Bass Pro.
Cam's 12th birthday.Hard to believe he is 12.
They were celebrating earth day at school.they were tie dying Tee shirts,decorating people for the earth and a few other activities.the tie dying was interesting.hahaha.What messy hands.
I had never visited bass pro.The aquarium was great.The whole store was amazing with all the creatures to look at.There is so much for kids to do at the store. Bowling, shopping and a place to eat. A good way to spend a birthday. Have a great day.j
