Fun in the Snow

So, I know that I'm the world's worst blogger but I had to post something about our week. We had so much fun with all the snow that we got. School was cancelled all week so we spent our time snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, sledding, playing on the huge mountain of snow in the middle of our cul-de-sac, and just watching the beautiful snow come down.
On Saturday, Tyler made a snowboard track in our backyard and Ellie got on a board for the first time. She was hooked!! Check out the videos-Ellie and Tyler look good but I just made a fool of myself!

Another day of sewing bliss!

One down 8 to go.

We finished the pincushions last Friday and picked out fabric for the banners.
I can't believe how amazing they all turned out.

I love how the girls all choose such different fabrics for their projects.
It's cool to see what they create.

pj's for josie

I got the pattern from Amy Butler's book Little Stitches for Little Ones.

So simple and sweet.

Good times at the County Fair

Last weekend the County Fair came to Flagstaff.
Almost as much fun as Disneyland!

To be continued....

These are the before pictures of the pincushions the girls started last Friday.

sewing and turning,

stuffing and hand stitching that they all loved (ha, ha).

Eight girls and 2 hours later they are almost done!
It may seem crazy to have this many girls in a class but I love it-they are all such great girls and help each other along. I hope they have as much fun as I do.

My Sewing Class

Sewing classes started Friday!

These are some sample pincushions I made for the girls' first project.
