This week Grandma was back with us. She submitted 2 projects for this weeks theme. Three if you include this gorgeous Easter lily that bloomed just in time for this week.
Grandma's first project is a stitched card that she made using a pattern from stitchingcards.com.
Her other project is a dogwood branch in bloom that was seen on Martha Stewart video. She found a branch outside and made these white flowers to put on it.
Thing 2 and I had discussed what he was going to do this week and had decided on painting a flower pot for a plant. Every summer he always has his own little grouping of flowers. I had gone out to run an errand the other night when he called and said he was bored and wanted to get ready to paint when I got home. Well, so much for waiting. When I got home this is what I found. He presented this cute pot to me as an early Mother's Day present. I love it.
I think the best part is that he did the whole thing from start to finish on his own.
I had seen this pillow the other day that I really wanted to try making. After looking at it some more, I decided it was like the petals on a flower and I decided that was my project for the week. Thing 2 is in full baseball mode and when looking at JoAnn's I saw this cute material and my baseball themed pillow was started.
I have to admit that it is not totally done, that is what happens when you try and finish it after baseball late at night. I did run into a problem with the side... but once I figured out the diameter of my circle I was on track and then I ran out of stuffing but for the sake of a photo I temporarily put the button on. I love how this turned out and so does Thing 2.
Until next week.....
