Project 52 - Week 8

Happy Monday!  The sun has been shining here all day and feels wonderful.  I love it!  I spent the morning at a friend's house doing some sewing.  My project ended up not going quite like I'd hoped, so I stopped on the way home to pick up some more fabric.  I will try again with better measurements.  Hoping to have that done to share later this week.

Last week wasn't super eventful, mostly just the routine stuff, but it was a good week.  I completed a sewing project that I started almost a year ago!  The kids and I went for a walk on the bike trail on Thursday after school, but we didn't last long because it was COLD!  Saturday morning I attended our local Praise and Coffee while Doug took Alex to soccer.  I really like his new Monday-through-Friday-daylight-weekends-off schedule.  He can still work some long days and even an occasional weekend, but primarily he's off.  It is nice to be able to plan things again!

Anyway, here's a glimpse at what last week looked like around here ...
(can you say "last week looked like" five times fast?)  :)
Alex brought home this snowman artwork from school.  It is made from glue and shaving cream.  I took a picture of it and threw it away because the stuff was flaking off and getting everywhere.  :)

Speaking of Alex, I bought this hat for him from my friend, Laura, who makes custom hats. He loves it!  And the day I brought it home he just happened to be wearing his favorite sweater with a train on it.

Working on my sewing project.

I spent some time watching the birds that were visiting my feeder and saw this red-winged blackbird for the first time.

Honey is my shadow all day every day when I am home.  When I go do anything, she follows me.  

Keira learned how to do a fishtail braid this week and wanted to practice on me.

Keira also taught me how to do a French braid since I have never quite gotten the hang of it. I think it turned out pretty good for a first try.

Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to seeing what you were up to last week!

Linking with Gina and Tamar for Project 52.

I have the same shadow at my house. Her name is Bella. I love Golden Retrievers. They are the BEST dog.
Your pictures are so nice...

Love the artwork, and the braids look great! We have a bird feeder outside out kitchen and red winged blackbirds are common visitors. They are so pretty!

I'm glad you took a picture of the snowman art before throwing it out--it's so neat and has character. How fun to have fun braiding hair with your daughter. I always tease my boys when their hair needs cut that its almost long enough for me to braid ;0) Perfect train hat too and nice shot of it--so clear and vivid.

I just love that pic of Alex in his hat so much!
