I started another quilt! Instead of doing a Liberty sampler quilt, I decided to play around with triangles. I was inspired by Rita's quilt and followed this pattern.
These blocks are really fun to make! I made the blocks out of Liberty scraps, remnant pieces, and Liberty fabrics that were given to me by friends and family. The fabrics in Rita's quilt don't match and they look fabulous together! (I have realized that some people are completely gifted in this area. Jessica, you are one of these people.) I wanted to experiment with fabrics that don't match and can't wait to see how the quilt develops.
I had fun making cards a couple of weeks ago. I decided to use my sewing machine and vintage buttons to make the flowers on the Mother's Day cards we sent out. It created a cool effect.
I think spring has finally REALLY arrived in Copenhagen. It's about time!
Yesterday Ethan started rolling oranges all over the house. Chase just goes with the flow. I love this pup.
My sister- and brother-in-law are in town, visiting from Seattle. They brought the gorgeous weather with them and we are all having a blast together. They planned their whole European vacation around Ethan's birthday--they wanted to make sure they were here for it. What cuties!
It is hard to believe that Ethan will turn one year old tomorrow! I have been thinking back about life one year ago--playing the waiting game, enjoying time with my mom-in-law, running to Ikea at the last minute to get Ethan's room set up, laaaaaaaaaaaaabor, and then the day that Ethan was born. That day (pain and all) was the best day of my life. I loved meeting the little guy for the first time. I am feeling very thankful this morning.
Hope you all have a great week!
