Crafts, quilts and pillows! Lots of Pictures!!oldes

Oh we have been sew busy here. Right now it is really cold outside...-25 and with the windchill -35. Last night it was actually -35 before the windchill....brrrrrrr. With that being said, it has been indoor activity week and trying to get lots done!!

So here is what we have done so far!! The kids did some crafts using up all those itty bitty scraps of fabric I had,  taught my son a bit of sewing knowledge and he made his very first sewing project, and I completed a quilt top. So here are some pictures (there will be a few as I love the pics). I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!!

It has been such a great week of creativity!!! And it is so much more enjoyable when my wee ones enjoy creating as well :)

If you are interested in the Windowpane patterns, hop on over to A Quilty Kind of Girl and get one from Bradie!

And just because I thought this was cute, here is my youngest daughter. She was playing peek-a-boo with a bucket! 

Well, off to get some work done! Hope that you all have a fantastic day!!
