Oh, yeah, and worked all week and played with my family. Wow, honestly I didn’t realize how much I had done in a week. I’ll cut myself some slack on not blogging….

OK, all those projects will be posted (well, except the jeans. they look pretty good, but not very exciting.), but this one is the finished Sketchbook.

Come On, Bow Wow, Let's Go Campin'

Some pages are just ‘Happy Thoughts’ (the theme of the book), while others are ‘sketches’ of projects I have planned. Fish for a fishing game. Dreams of the beach while I’m working on a play mat. Upcoming quilts.

Spring Is Here, I Wish

Not The Sun, Mercury

Climbing On Dragon Hill

So that’s mine… My favorite? I think the very first one I did, my son and his dog Bow Wow. Daddy used to tell Max stories, this is one he came up with, an adorable one about our son going camping with his stuffed animal Bow Wow. They packed their bags, headed out, pitched their tent, made a fire, and laid out under the stars before packing up and heading home for the snacks they forgot!

Which one is your favorite? Please tell!
