Happy First Mother's Day

I got to celebrate my very first mother's day! Scott gave me a lovely card and a Boppy Cuddle pillow. It's a pillow made for pregnant mommies-to-be that supports the back and belly. I am sure it will be very useful in the coming months. Then we went to Pigeon Forge. We had a nice lunch, played miniature golf and bought some maternity clothes at one of the outlet stores. A very nice day indeed.

Tiny hands. Tiny feet.

One more for the baby brigade! Our little bundle of joy's estimated time of arrival is November 19, 2009! We are both very excited!

Happy Birthday Ralph.

I made this cake for my friend, Ralph. I tend to bring goodies to court with me on Tuesdays and on this particular Tuesday I took a red velvet cake (his favorite) for my friend the probation officer's birthday. It was enjoyed by all. I used the Paula Deen recipe from Katie Lee Joel's cookbook. It was great . . . if I do say so myself.

Patchwork wreath.

I made this little wreath a while back with 2 x 2 scraps of fabric. You take a foan wreath form and poke the scraps into the form with a pencil. Isn't it cute? And very easy to do. But be careful . . . I may have had a small injury.

Happy Birthday Ethan.

I made this baby quilt for my friend, Tasha. (who coincidentally was induced today and is in labor as I write this!) She is having a baby boy to be named Ethan Miles. Her nursery colors are tan, brown and blue. She loved the quilt, Hopefully Ethan will too!

Little Garden Buddy.

Check out my new garden cart. It is the cutest thing. It is soooooo useful. I have already used it a ton.....moving dirt, hauling compost, bringing my new plants to the garden space. It also dumps like a little dumptruck. It is a tough little thing.
