Tangled Birthday!

 So my oldest daughter Megan turns 4 next Thursday. Wow I can not believe that
it has been four years already.  I asked her what she wanted for a birthday theme and she told me, "I want a tangled party Mommy" I thought great! That was before I realized that there is not that many things on the market for Rapunzel and the tangled movie. So what does any mom do when she can't find something she wants, she googles it and finds out how to make this party work.  I found a great blog called Super Mom Moments. My creative juices started flowing and before I knew it I was in the midst of a Tangled Birthday Party.  So here is my Tangled birthday party in a nut shell. The decorations...

The favors: Bags I made with stickers and Pascal blow toys...

And then the best part of the party was the tangled cake my mom and dad made her. My dad measured it and it came out to 35" tall! I thought it was wonderful....
Megan thoroughly enjoyed her party and so did her friends. I am so glad, because I am completely pooped. Well I am glad this turned out to be a happy ending! Happy Birthday to my big girl! I love you very much!

Farmer's Wife Quilt Along Weeks 1-6.5

I know it has been a while since I last posted but I have been quite busy. Currently at my full time job we have been undergoing a large renovation and I have been coming home absolutely wiped.

I did get to finish a flannel blanket, nursing cover, and burg clothes for my husbands step-cousin who is expecting her first born next month. I have also been slowly working on my Farmer's Wife blocks. I have added 4 more blocks. This makes me only 4.5 weeks behind, but slow and steady I will piece all 111 of these little blocks.
One of my blocks: Butterfly at the crossroads 
#14 Butterfly at the Crossroads 
I am pondering redoing. I ended up messing up my calculations and it is a bit (well, really!) wonky. I paper pieced the Attic Windows and Windmill blocks
#1 Attic Window
#108 Windmill 
they both turned out beautiful and I love them a lot. I also pieced Birds in the Air.#7 Birds in the Air 
I cut each of these blocks, and I have to say I felt quite proud to say I made this block and it is relatively 6.5" square! That was a lot of little pieces. Well I am off to, packing, vacation, Meg's 4th birthday party, and hopefully some sewing are going to catch up to me soon!
