Wow, so long...

...since I have posted!  I had no idea it had been so long!  I guess that's what happens when life is busy!  We had a sickly winter with literally 2 - 3 days between thankful that we've now had a couple of healthy has been great! 

The weather here has been absolutely beautiful lately, so we have made sure to get outside often...trying to kill of some germs and strengthen little bodies!  The peach trees are budding, as are the cherry bushes!  Can't wait to have homegrown fruit again...sooooo much better than what you can buy in a store.  I think everyone should plant fruit trees...little work, but huge benefits!  My hyacinths are also blooming...they are such a gorgeous flower, although the youngest DD likes to pick off each little flower :)

I have been sewing, although not near as much as I would have liked!  Here's a dress/hat that I made yesterday

I had purchased the fabric through a coop, it is designed by one of the mommas, and when I went to the Goodwill thrift store, they had someone donate a bunch of NEW baby t-shirts and were selling them for .49 cents each...ummm I grabbed about a dozen LOL  So, I used top half of one of them for the bodice of this dress, and the bottom half of the t-shirt I refashioned into a newsboy-style hat!  I still need to tweak the hat a little for a better fit, and add a little embellishment to the bodice, but am happy with it! 

I also made a few Newborn cloth diapers for my sweet sister in Australia who is expecting her first baby!!!!  Was so much fun to make...almost hard to mail them off!  Here they are...

And I know there is more, but can't think what off the top of my head!  
Anyway, that's enough for now, hope to be back soon!
