It has been quite a month around here! Well, maybe not as crazy busy as we usually are... We've still been keeping things more low key while watching to see how Colin will do. (He's doing GREAT!!)

But here are a few of the things that we HAVE done. 

We got a piano!!! Now we just need lessons! LOL I used to be able to play simple melodies and read music. I am trying to remember all of that! 
The Hubby loves auctions! We picked this up at an estate auction for $20!! AND it's in tune!!!!! 

At another auction I got 2 vintage Singers and a vintage sewing box. I need to take pics of them and show you all!! :D 

We've had some beautiful days lately. We finally decided to take advantage of them and head out to see some friends in the country. It was the first time that Colin had been out and about since he got out of the hospital. It was also the first time that he got to play with other kids. 

We went to our very first baseball game!! YIPPEE!! Someone in one of our homeschool groups had 50 FREE tickets!!! We jumped right on that! Good thing, too because those tickets went very quickly!!! 
We did the normal baseball things. We had hot dogs! LOL

And some other treats! ;)

Cailey and another girl from our group got to go out on the diamond and race for prizes for the season ticket holders. They were so nervous but had a good time with it. 

Some of the other kids in our group got to run with the pig (don't ask) and they gave everyone pig noses.

I had a really good Mother's Day. The Hubby and Deanna made breakfast. Food is SO MUCH better when you don't have to make it yourself. ;) 
Deanna got me a gorgeous bunch of flowers. Nice and colorful just the way I like them.
Joshua got me a GIANT card and 5 pairs of the coolest owl socks you can imagine!!!
Jacob got me a sparkly card with butterflies on them.
Cailey and Colin (The Hubby) got me a $100 Visa gift card which I then used on the fabric below! ;)

These are going to make some really cute things for Cailey. 

These will make some awesome pajamas for Colin! 

Not sure what I will use these for but I'm sure I'll think of something. ;)

This was my first online fabric buying. I am sold! The Fabric Fairy has the cutest printed knits!! It's sooooo hard to find those at Joann's and Hancock's, especially for boys!!!! 

Our toadpoles have legs!!!! YAY!!!! :D We have toadlets! LOL

So that's what we've been up to!! Oh, and this stuff HERE

Don't forget to click the links at the top!!! :D 


  1. what great fabric, can't wait to see the outcome! First baseball game looks fun! LOVE the piano....will we get videos?

    1. THANK YOU!!!
      There might be videos coming up, if I can figure out how to post them! LOL

  2. Colin looks so healthy, it's great to see him outdoors.
    I can't wait to see what you make with this new fabric. This non-sewer lives vicariously through you!

    1. THANK YOU!!
      He is doing so well. I am so so thankful!!! He has final lost the purple from around his eyes.
      Going to use some of that fabric for Blog with Friends! ;)

  3. Love the fabrics! I have two singer sewing machines (minus the actual sewing machines) one has a belfast sink on the top of it that I grow tomato plants in and the other I plan on turning into a garden table at some point. Good to see Colin up and about.

    1. COOL!!!
      I have 2 with the cabinets and now 2 without. Plus my trusty Brother that I actually sew with. LOL

  4. Looks like you picked a gorgeous day to get out to the country!
    Pig noses, cotton candy and hot dogs is exactly what you are supposed to enjoy at a base ball game. That looked like so much fun! Plus Free tickets are the best kind of tickets!
    I have yet to guy fabric online but maybe I should try it next time. You got some cute stuff!

    1. We all had so much fun, both days!
      Oh! I can definitely recommend The Fabric Fairy! Fast shipping and the fabrics are excellent quality!

  5. Awwww…it looks like y'all have been having fun! Enjoy the piano----we have one and it's really nice to be able to fill the house with music!

    1. THANK YOU!! Right now it's filling the house with noise.... LOL ;)

    2. Enjoy the piano~ It will come back. Looks like a fun month. Good job on the fabrics. I've not ever bought online. I always think I have to feel it to know the quality of the fabric.....

    3. Thanks!!
      That's how I've always been, too. I need to touch and feel it but it's just so hard to find cute printed knits that I decided to take the plunge. LOL So glad I did!!!

  6. Glad to see Colin is on the mend, that must have been so scary for all of you. The fabric you got is to die for. I've never thought to go online for material, it's got to be easier than the 30 minute drive to the closest fabric store to my home, and judging from the treasure you managed to snap up, definitely worth it. $20 for a piano? I'm totally jealous right now.

    1. THANK YOU!!
      It was absolutely terrifying. I am so thankful that he is doing so well.

  7. Love the piano and all of that fabric! Online fabric shopping is the best way to get different prints! Your kids are so cute, Stacy. and you have toadlets! I love that!

    1. THANK YOU!! <3
      I have always wanted to do tadpoles with the kids, I guess toadpoles will have to do. LOL ;)

  8. I'm very jealous about that piano deal! I cannot believe you got it at such a great price. At least now you could afford lessons if need be :)

  9. Toadlets! Love it. I'm so happy Colin is doing so well! It must be a great relief now that he's on the mend.

    1. Thank you so much!!!
      Oh, absolutely!!!! Now we just have to keep him that way.

  10. I love the dress and capri's you made your daughter, great game photos, free tickets and toadlets! WHOOP


I <3 comments!! Thank you so much for taking the time! :)
