Another birthday

My son is 11 today!

Happy birthday Buddy Bear.

He’s a GREAT big Brother Smile

I remember having him by emergency C-Section, how horrified I was and also being a new mom I had never taken care of a baby before.

(I had a placental abruption)

He is my MIRACLE boy…. if it wasn’t for the C- Section we could have both died….. AND he not only survived but he’s really SMART and such a great kid! LOVE you BUDDY!

Meanwhile the little trouble maker is back to SORTING my fabrics

And playing the Keyboard, she knows how to turn it on and turn on a “beat” or an automatic song and then wiggles her little butt in rhythm to the music.

Then the other day I saw Teresa made some fabric covered boxes

and we started chatting back and forth on email and I remembered I had a book from Denmark about fancy small fabric covered boxes, where I might have made 1 or 2 when I was a teenager, so I looked for the book and didn’t find it BUT then I remembered I had photo copied it from the library way back then- I know I’m BAD…..

I took a few pics of the pages to show you- can’t find the book online now.

look, it even has a star quilt block on the top, how NEAT!
