Some New Things....

Jeff is always telling me that I need a hobby (sound familiar to any other moms?). So I went to Ikea and bought fabric that I LOVE, and spent all day yesterday sewing. I made a crib skirt and quilt for Zachie's room. I had fun and I am so proud of myself! Brady's bed skirt is next!

Oh, we also bought a car.
This pattern is hippos. So cute!
This is a 2 foot tall 'Z'. (made of cardboard I think) I bought it at Joann's then let Brady paint it. It's hanging on Zach's wall.

Cute! Sewing is a great hobby! I think I need to stay home more and work on hobby's rather than drive anywhere with gas prices the way they are!! But then, my hobbies are not cheap either!! You just can't win!

Jeff and Jeremy have to be related - apparently I need hobbies too! Great job with Zachies room! Love your car!

I love that fabric! Sooo cute! (And that's so funny that you just sort of mentioned your new car as a side note.)

I LOVE your sewing. I also really like the hippo fabric. It inspires me to get out my sewing machine. Fabulous car too...your family is cute and it is fun to read up and keep tabs on your family!
