Weekend in Iowa

Well, we didn’t spend the whole weekend in Iowa, but we did have a nice visit with our son Stephen and his family.  We went to a school carnival on Friday night.  Lots of standing around.   Glad I had my camera with me.  Hope you enjoy this photo album.

It was easy to get photos of Emma.  It was a bit harder to get photos of her brothers.

I really like the effect I accidentally achieved when Emma walked in front of me with her balloon flower.

I spent more than an hour outside again today, but I’m still not making much of an impact on my hen bit.  It is growing faster than I can get it pulled out!  I want to get some pansies to set out this week.

I finished the little tooth fairy pillow this afternoon.  It turned out very cute!  I’ll post a picture tomorrow.  Tonight I started working on a personalized banner for Cole for his birthday.  I like the way it is turning out, too.  First I made 6 triangles.  Now I’m adding his name.  Should be able to finish it tomorrow.  And I found my zippers that I knew I had somewhere.  I want to make another satin bag with ruffles.  I think I can do them like I did the pleats on the other little satin clutch, only horizontally instead of vertically.
