weekend review

here is a photo story of the weekend...
stella had a fever lasting a total of 5 days...reaching (for 3 days straight) 104.7...yep...delirious. she had dreams of evil miss piggy, flying polly pockets (she was one) and the big bad wolf. probably doesn't help that we watched shrek, shrek 2, elf, the muppets take manhattan, and sesame street's musical celebration all within 4 days. a bit much for a feverish brain! but she is on the mend and we went out for ice cream tonight. celebration!


her cuddle buddies, olive and archie. now, these guys were made 2 weeks ago (for eli's birthday), but olive did not have a face (only eyes) until today...

presenting, olive. or as stella calls her...stella.

of course, both dolls are not totally finished. olive is supposed to have a big old bow in her hair and a cute little collar. archie is also supposed to have a collar...maybe i'll do it this week...i am so good at never finishing things...

let's see how this goes...some of my strip piecings for a quilt i want to make for stella. all out of scraps from previous projects/clothing i've made for either myself or stella...i hope she likes it...hope i finish it! i'm giving myself deadlines...and this has to be done before my quilt class! yessirree...i signed up for a class at the little shop. i'll be making this quilt out of this fabric...

it will probably be for eli...hope he likes it as much as he liked dinner...ravioli and broccoli...yum!

and they say he's failing to thrive!! c'mon!

and to close...it was a stay-at-home, clean-up, mess-up, exhausting sort of weekend...but at the same time...it was fun. i'm so thankful that stella is better and happy now... she is such a sweety...
and one more thing...it has been so fun hearing from you all...rachel, jen, ann, lauren, loren, my sisters, my mom! it is lovely and i hope it continues! so thank you all for being a part of my little world...

enjoy some cheerios...courtesy of stella. (i swear i will post a whole photo album of her work...it is amazing!)xoxo!

glad stella is feeling better! those little dolls are so cute! i'm assuming you made them?? it's good to see photos...i'm still trying to figure out how to post them between the writing...argh!

rachel, just download (or uplaod, whatever) them and click & drag them around to the spot you want to drop them at...should work...

melis, so glad stella is on the mend, el had a REALLY high fever a month ago (themo was reading over 105) she was in this constant state of half awake and half sleep, talking and mumbling all night) and i don't wish that fright on anyone!

i love it, i love it, i love it!!! this is the best medicine an auntie, sister and friend could ask for living too far away from you guys. sometimes reading this makes me miss you so much it hurts. thanks for letting me in on the day to day, you have no idea how much it means. ok before the tears spill over, I'm glad stella is on the mend, those dolls are so adorable melis (you're amazing!), and keep up the good work on posting the photos i love seeing my cutie pies and getting a glimpse of the creative madness that your right temporal lobe must be brimming with....
