Happy Birthday to me!

My birthday was good. It was mostly just a lazy day. Unfortunately my hubby had to work all day so it was just me and the kids but we went out to dinner when he got home.

My spinning wheel showed up on the 10th! It was unfinished so I got to play with it all week, staining and then putting a couple coats of polyurethane on. She turned out soooo nice!
Meet Guinevere. I haven't had too much time to spin but what I have been able to do has been nice. The first time I sat down it just worked. I couldn't believe it! I'm glad that it came with 2 pounds of wool to play with. I may need all that practice!

My Mom sent a package that arrived yesterday. She sent a shirt and a gift card to home depot. She also sent the kids some toys and candy. She's a good Grandma. And Mom too :)

My Sister is going to come up this Saturday, her b-day is the 25th so we'll celebrate both our birthdays then.

I love when my birthday lasts nearly all month!!

A bit of update

Poor neglected blog. I'm sorry.

Anyway I'm still around. I've been working on some quilt blocks I bought over 10 years ago. Maybe one day I'll have a quilt. I've been unpicking one of the blocks because it was a little wonky. I started putting it back together and it's still wonky. So it's been set aside again.

I've also been working on a pair of socks for me. They have peep bunnies on them. I'm excited for them, but I'm having a hard time. I've lost count how many times I've restarted them. I hope I'm on the right track now.

The kiddies are doing well. Tate loves school and is disappointed when the weekend comes. Dillon is starting to be a little more understandable. He still isn't talking as well as other kids his age though.

I'm excited for my Birthday in about a week! My hubby got me a spinning wheel! I got the tracking number last night and have been obsessively checking it since. It was in Illinois last I checked and should get here on the 10th! I can't wait!

Gotta go for now. Tate had to come home early from school because his tummy hurts. So aside from being sad because he's missing school, he doesn't feel good. Dillon is doing his best to cheer his brother up though. It's great how well they get along!
