We had a great turnout for making our Martinique Bag this week. What neat bags left the shop! Debbie's was so pretty, it had a white with black polkadots for the lining...

Yep that title is right....all one word...this little boy is ready for Kindergarten! I realized I didn't post the photos from Garrett's other preschool graduation. I got to go with Amy,Chris, Aiden and Ethan to celebrate this cute guy graduating! He's been going a couple days a week to a different preschool besides attending the one at his house so he's been in preschool every day this year. What fun for him to have a whole new group of friends there.

Just finished a new sample for our Martinique Bag. Class is today on it so I made this one to brush up on the construction. It's such a comfortable great bag, made out of laminated cotton on the outside so very durable....wipe it off if it gets dirty! I've made them out of plain cotton too and either works great.

What a fun night we had with our kids treating us to a Diamond Backs baseball game. They are lucky enough to get tickets here and there from Chris's Dad Steve who has many jobs at the ballpark including running that big screen! Here are Garrett and Ethan as we arrived...

My 3 week series for Watermelon picnic ended this week too. I had 7 coming to class to make the fun watermelon picnic quilt. They all did such a great job learning the log cabin block. All made it in the watermelon style but for Marti, she branched out and did this great color group. It was fun to see it set with all these fun colors. They were all in different stages by the last class, everyone wanted me to wait to take a photo of it tho when they had it finished, most were drawing out their baskets, punching out ants with the die cut machine, some were learning how to do a flange.....so I guess I'll show you as I get to take photo's of them coming in to show me. Nancy, Jennifer, Julie O., Christie, Julie N. Carla and Marti, you all did great with this classic block ! I teach this same project again in June if you missed it! Beyond Basics is a 3 week series on Thursdays, morning or evening.

Whew, what a busy week we've all had! Remind me next year to not schedule so many classes this last week of May when there are so many fun other things going on! I'll catch you up a bit here to show you the fun we had yesterday! Garrett and Ethan graduated from preschool! Yep, I know it was Garrett's 3rd graduation but it was still very important....you can tell by the photo's that he was in goofy mode and SO ready for kindergarten!

We had our nesting boxes class last week at ETC. Lots of people wanted to learn how to make these cute boxes out of fabric! They loved how easy they were and how easy it was to match a decor, use up scraps and make some fun containers.

Here's a new sample done and finished up at ETC. It was so much fun to do ! It's a fun 2 part class we are having at ETC. in August, the 2nd and 9th, both classes in the afternoon.I don't know which block was more fun to make! We've had a great response to this class already so it's fun to see everyone smile at this one!
Then when it's done you have so much fun finding the button eye or nose! Easy and fun to do!

MB and Bode and I went shopping this weekend and bought our newest little Grandson some fun things for his arrival in July. I like the Mommies to pick out what they want their babies wearing their first few days of life....."hospital wardrobe"! And I know he won't need much and they have Bode leftovers but every little baby deserves a few new things. So here is what MB picked out. Ken joined us so he and Bode stayed occupied so we could shop! It was fun to get to splurge and buy our new little guys some things, what a sale, everything was half off and then we had a 25% coupon! So now I'll be taking these out to shop for fabrics for receiving blankets to match! He's going to be so cute in all these. Chris liked the Crabby but cute one when he met us to eat at Someburros! I think Marie and I will love the Grandma's hero with the firetruck! and of course we found a little brother one and a big brother shirt for Bode! What deals, Jamie and I were texting on jammie sizes for Noah and then Bode will get some for his birthday too, don't you love a good sale! I'll show you what I end up when I finish them, little Brock will look so cute in all these!

Lucky me got to do so many favorite things on Mothers day....I awoke to flowers from Ken! A walk and then off for a relaxing brunch at Chris and MB's. The guys were "cooking" so we enjoyed Mimosa's, Chris is in the background making bacon....
What a beautiful oasis they've built in their back yard! The boys love playing on the rocks!
