Squeal!


So I just happen to go to my favorite local quilt shop yesterday evening, and Lisa, my friend who is either part owner or the owner's daughter, tells me, "I saw you in a magazine." Whoa, whoa what? Yup, there were MY KIDS and MY NAME in the Moda ad in American Patchwork and Quilting! I had no idea it would be out so fast or that it would even be in that magazine. But apparently it's out, so go get it! It's right at the front too. Framing project coming up . . .



Plus my kids dyed Easter eggs yesterday. Now we can't say that we dyed them because every time someone (usually Anna) gets really confused and says, "Who died?" "Why did they die?" "Were there chickens in these eggs?" "If I touch them will I die?" You get the picture.

We can't call them coloring they eggs, because then they go get their crayons.

We've settled on painted eggs.


Oh yes, Anna's hair looks doopy because she lipsticked it. (Heard I was getting mine colored and thought she would too.)


Nathan really took his time. The girls had each done four before he finished one egg.

Another day in the life . . .

Happy Easter!

Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"

"Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. Matthew 27:11
 
Love,

I agree, SQUEAL!
I still get goosebumps every time I look at it and it's not even me! It's just so exciting.
Good for Nathan taking his time to get it just the way he wants it! :)
