sewing day!

Today we visited my sweet friend Colleen. She generously offered to show me some of the basics of sewing doll clothing. I ended up with a beautiful new outfit for Nova's doll Peter!! Can everyone see that his little pants have a Squirrel Nutkin (Beatrix Potter) theme? There are mushrooms, squirrels, owls, berries, and hedgehogs on there! My friend Carrie gave me the fabric! Love it!!

We also took some time to visit with the horses. Nova got brave enough to feed one!! And the sheep ran over when Colleen put out some sweet feed.

There was also some swinging and some bubble blowing! And lots of fun running around in the beautiful sunshine...

Colleen~ if you're reading, thank you so much for having us over! We always enjoy spending time with you and your sweet kids!!!!!

Awww - Peter's pants are awesome! Great job, I'm so excited that you have a sewing machine now. <3

The pictures of the sheep are adorable - what a special day to have.

Peace and Love,
