Creative delays...

The girls and I finally started to get our crafty, creative groove going again.

A little one trying hand sewing for the very first time.
 The Christmas quilt was completed!
Nearly hurt myself dancing all around the house.
A big thanks to Glenn for help with the photo shoot.
What would I do without him.  Don't want to know.  :)

 Em completed a wee little quilt which she is very proud of.
I must say she did a very fine job for the very first one.
The cutest mushroom fabric on the back.
 And lots of squares of her favorite scraps that were just lying around.
 Then there was a wee break taken so we could celebrate someones 7th a wee bit early.
The birthday candles magically disappeared and some desperate improvising took place.
Big sis made the birthday cake all by herself.  She is becoming quite the little baker around here.
So after all of that, an unexpected blogging break will be taken as we will be whisked away to a family member who needs us to be by their side.

So until then, take care and keep finding happiness around you.
Pics will be shared when I return.
