Weekend Recap...and a sneak peek

Did you all have a good weekend? Lots of diverse things going on here...

Charlotte and I went to a "snowman party" at our local children's bookstore, Petunia's Place. We listened to books about snowmen (my favorite--highly recommended), played games, sang songs, decorated marshmallow crispy treat shaped like a snowman...Such a fabulous bookstore. Not such a good picture...


Speaking of books, somehow I landed on this set of flickr photos, Book of Art. Isn't this fabulous? I definitely want one of these:
Mark did a lot of cooking yesterday--getting ready for Super Bowl. Yum.


And I'm not sure quite how this happened. I made a seemingly innocent comment to Aaron about reading his running magazine, and the next thing I knew, an app for this program was on my iPhone and I had a new set of running shoes.


Here's a sneak peek. Isn't this pretty?


A pile of orange selvages turned into this. I'm thinking of doing a tutorial on how to make selvage spool blocks. Any interest?

  1. Hey, that's the 5k program I'm following! :-)
    That spool block is darling. I love how the selvedge variation makes it look like actual thread...

  12. What a fun weekend! I love the variety you managed to squeeze in, from playtime with Charlotte, to having Mark cook (what a treat!), to starting a workout routine, to those fabulous spool blocks! I love how they look, with the brown for the wood and the selvages - perfect!
