Spring time!

I love this time of year!  Lawn mowers are starting up all over the neighborhood and it's time to get impatient about planting!

I got my little blueberry bushes in the mail from Gurneys yesterday and they went in the ground today!
 My little garden boxes are almost ready. They just need a little more soil.

 the peonies are poking their little heads out.
 My daffodils (and tulips) are also making an appearance....along with a lot of weeds.

Pattern testing

Several weeks ago I got on the list at Create Kids Couture to be a pattern tester.  When the come up with new designs they have people test the patterns to make sure everything is as it should be before they release it to the public.  As long as you follow their rules you get the pattern for free too!
One of the rules is that you can't share pictures until the pattern is officially released.  These two are out now so I can share!
The first one I tested was for these cute little ruffle shorts.  (I don't show baby girl's face in most of the pictures because she is usually not happy about being a model)

 This one is a triple ruffle dress.

I am so addicted to their patterns now.  I can't wait to test another one!
