|At the Home & Garden Show in Tacoma Dome. Beautiful landscaping!|
|The boys and Jake taking a rest. It was a lot of walking for those poor boys (and their momma!)|
|We really loved this walkway. I'd love to have it as the stairs up to the house.|
|Finished this Infinity Scarf and have been wearing it around almost daily. It's so cozy & warm.|
|Our poor broken tree in the backyard. The storm took down and/or broke just about every tree in the whole neighborhood.|
|Jake clearing the dead, broken branches from the tree. I hope it survives! It was pretty beaten up.|
|My first pillow ever! I love, love, love this pillow! It has a place of honor on our couch. Doesn't match the decor right now, but oh well. It will when we move into the new house.|
|I made it with an envelope closure on the back so it can be easily slipped off and washed.|
|I was happy to use up these bright scraps. The gray background is a linen I had on hand. I had never sewn with 100% linen before and it was a little different than cotton, but worked well. I like how it turned out.|
|A visit to our land! Yes, our land! Jake's parents signed all the paperwork last week so it is officially the family's land.|
|Aiden walking through the area we are thinking of putting our house. I am getting very excited!|
|Leaving the land. Such a pleasant day of exploring and planning. And I even knit 2 hats from start to finish on the drive.|
Even though I didn't get a lot of sewing done it was a very fun and exciting week. I should note that for the pillow I used a modified version of this tutorial from Angela's blog @ fussycut. It was a really great tutorial, easy to follow and lots of helpful pictures. I modified it to fit the size of pillow I had on hand, but other than that, I followed her directions and it worked out beautifully. I will definitely be making some more pillows using this tutorial. The hubs has been saying we need some nice pillows for the couch and that's all the invitation I need.
Hope you have a great rest of your week! I'm off to shoot catapults in the yard with the boys and hubby.
