The Last Week- This is long!

So, it's been about a week since I last posted. I made myself take a break so that I could sew for the craft show this past weekend. Anyway, let me share a few things that have happened before the craft show.

The weather has been wonderful for the past several weeks. Here are some pictures of my little gardener! Isn't she adorable? A few days before this Eric had her in the carrier while he did some work to get ready for spring. She headed straight to the pot when we went outside.




She looks like she is talking to Lilly in this picture.



Showing off her dirty hands.




Playing in the backyard with her toy that was at Grandpa & Grandma's house before they moved into their motor home. Her hair looks wet because of the sunscreen I put on her.




I was on the computer while I was waiting for Elise to finish eating lunch. I looked over and this is what I saw. She has never done this before. She was eating yogurt covered pears and cheerios.


Elise is walking like a champ! She walks all over the house and sometimes she even tries to run! It's so cute! She has even started to stand up without pulling up on anything! Whenever I tell people she is walking, they can't believe it!



Here is Elise modeling one of my new products, a Reversible Snap Pinafore Dress!





Here is the back. I also have a pattern for ruffle butt bloomers. I will have pictures of the bloomers soon! I didn't take any pictures of the reverse fabric. Eric will be taking better pictures soon!





Here is another one. This one is the next size. I have them from 0-24 months.





I think I may add another snap, so there isn't as much of the back showing. I love how versitile these are! Like the pillowcase dress, you can wear it like this with bloomers. You can also wear a t-shirt, or long sleeved shirt, or with jeans! They can be worn all year round!



Here a few pictures of Loopy Lovies that I made for the craft show. Here is a girl one.




Here is a little boy one. These are approximatly 12x12.



I decided to make some smaller ones as well. Here is one of the girl Mini Loopy Lovies.



Here is one of the boy ones as well. These are approximatly 6x6. These are great for younger babies. They are the perfect size for them to hold on to.


On a negative note, I have also learned that my Grandpa is not doing well. A couple of years ago, he was diagnose with prostate cancer. They have been fighting it ever since. In the fall the learned that it had spread to several other areas of his body. They are still fighting. He has been in quite a lot of pain, he has been throwing up, getting bloody noses and sleeping a lot. Please keep him in your prayers.

My sister had a TIA around Thanksgiving. It is sort of like a really small stroke. They found a hole in her heart and were planning on having it fixed. However, her insurance refuses to cover it because the procedure is still considered experimental. Last week, my sister's cardiologist call her to say that he found a company to donate the device that would fix the whole, one of our local hospitals has agreed to allow the procedure to be done at no cost and the cardiologist has agreed to do the procedure for free as well! God is SO good! Please pray that everything will go smoothly.

On Friday, Eric, Elise and I will be heading to Colorado Springs. We have been thinking of moving there for about a year now. We will stay with a friend of my sister and brother-in-law. Eric will be looking for a job and we will be scoping out the area for good places to live as well. It is also somewhat of a vacation! Please keep us in your prayers. That God would open doors if this is a step we are to take. That Eric would find a job he would enjoy and everything would fall into place.

That is all for now.
