Remember the ribbons I bought and said I was making something special with them? Well finally I am posting on them! I first saw these adorable things here..http://samstermommy.blogspot.com/2011/02/sunshine-rattle.htm, I fell in love with them and thought how cute! Sunshine as a rattle toy! So I studied the instructions....bought the supplies and got to the task of creating my version of sunshine! As you can see I embroidered the girls names on each of their own sunshine....loved them! My camera did not pick up the true bright yellow of the fabric....but are they not cuteness????
Flowers from my son on Mothers Day! Flowers truly lighten and brighten up a room don't they?
Hubby and I went on his bike to Long Grove and found this cute lil British store there.....we came away with these meatpies! They were quite delish!
I also stopped in and visited this little treasure of a store! http://ratherbeknitting.com/. I came across this book, I follow Susan B Anderson's blog...http://www.spudandchloe.com/blog/ and had to come away with the book! I am hoping to make these for my lil cuddlemuffins! : ) They actually had a Spud on display and oh my! he was adorable!!!!! We weren't able to get pictures due to the fact that my camera's batteries died.....we do plan on visiting Long Grove again in June for their Strawberry Festival......I will be sure to take tons of pics! It is the cutest town!
