I sewed Emmy a bonnet, the pattern from The Children's Year. But, I did not do something quite right - not sure how to attach the brim properly. If you want to see a bonnet that came out really well with the same pattern, visit Melanie's beautiful blog. I am going to try again or perhaps look for another pattern.
The barn is in the process of getting a spring cleaning.
The marsh marigolds are blooming along the pond.
Firewood collecting has begun.
Frog collecting season has arrived on our little pond.
We traveled down to Woodstock, Vermont (my favorite little town to visit) to meet my father to pick up Thomas who had been away for 10 days. He and his Poppa went to the 100th anniversary game of Fenway Park, Thomas played at an open mike night in Framingham, was able to visit with some extended family, work a little for my father, and enjoy the fast paced life for a time. We are happy to have him home again though.
