Crazy few weeks

I can't believe two weeks has gone bye since my last post. It's been a bit crazy here with my Endoscopy, Gallbladder sonogram, construction workers working on the house, regular doctors appointments, family coming to visit, a birthday party for our little one and for my best friend Holly. As if this wasn't enough I managed to go to a quilt show and to finish my "Salem Village" cross-stitch.
Here are a few pictures that I took at the Lancaster Spring Quilt show. All the quilts were beautiful but for me the dragon quilt was the real jewel. I wish there was a card that told who the artist said do not touch on it so I couldn't even see if there was a label on the back.

As I said above we also had a few birthday's to celebrate. Our little one turned's so hard to believe he's two already...children grow so fast. I think he really had a fantastic birthday. :0)Grandma helped with the cake decorating....isn't it sweet...Silas loves Thomas and his friends so it was perfect having Edward on his cake after all he is the #2 engine.
Here's Silas riding in his new wagon with his best buddy.....of course it was Daddy powered...LOL. Below is a picture of Holly opening the pinkeep and bunny I made her...she was surprised and she said "Girl you're getting really good!". Holly is the type of gal that tells me the truth no matter what. I think that's why we get along so well.Any way I think I will leave you with these lovely photos for now. I hope to have my "Salem Village" cross-stitch framed in a few weeks. I will show you my finish then. It seems only fitting since it took me five months to complete it... LOL.
I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy.
