Now For Something Personal

We welcome into this world, this week, Cody Anthonie Hofmans.  Yes this is our sixth grandchild born to Katrina and Eric, Wednesday, June 4th at 11:09 am weighing in at 7 lbs. 4 oz. 19 inches.  I was so concerned that I would not be able to be there for the birth but after a 5:30 am phone call and some car trouble, I arrived at 9:30 and was even able to be in the room during Cody's birth. Mother and baby are doing well.  We are going up Sunday for the day and looking forward to seeing Cody, Becky and Daniel.  Such blessings!

Lesley just joined our group and this is her design board.  I already know what I want to do but I didn't get it for this month.

I'm struggling with how I want to do my quilt from Barbara Sawyer's design board.  I've been inspired but not sure how to do what I want.  I better get to it.

Little Bits

I spent some time just doing little bits of stuff.  Here is a bowl I made for my friend, Bethel.  She had this shabby chic fabric.  I really like how it came out so I bought some similar fabric for me.

These are some more blocks for the civil war block of the month.  I'm all caught up, till next week anyways!

Here are my "Trash Can Cards".  I made them from pieces out of my trash can.

Years ago I bought a pattern and the screen to make these little zipper bags.  Never made them.  I needed some birthday presents so dug through my stuff and instant presents.  Of course, I had to add something inside each one.
