I finally got brave enough to cut up all my favorite Anna Maria fabrics.  I LOVE how this quilt turned out!  It's a small lap quilt, but the perfect size for me to cover up with on the couch.  It was relatively easy to make and a quilt as you go pattern.

The kids like it too!

I made this quilt a few months ago when Austin's 1st grade teacher was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Erica made a quilt like this one for Grace's teacher last year and loaned me all the pens and muslin to whip this up.  I made it in one week so Austin's teacher would have it with her for her first chemo treatment.

She loved it!  I hope it gave her a little comfort knowing how loved and appreciated she is!

Easter 2013 1

 We celebrated Easter this year at our house with my parents and sisters' family.  


 We had a giant Easter egg hunt in the backyard. 

The eggs were hidden everywhere!


Austin stopped running around gathering eggs long enough for me to snap this picture.

The kids had fun dyeing Easter eggs.

The Easter Bunny found our new house.

It was a wonderful Easter with family.  Next time maybe I'll remember to take pictures of the grown ups too!
