Satsuma Trees

Back at the end of March the Satsuma trees were blooming in the backyard.  It's one of the great things about having citrus trees in the yard - the smell of the flowers is fabulous.  I decided to take my camera outside and see if I could catch some of the action among the flowers.

Jon's Blanket Redux

In the past I have made each of the kids their own blanket - with the exception of Baby Grace (she'll get hers soon!).  And they all use them - with the exception of James (his wore out and was too threadbare to fix.)  

A few years ago my sewing machine broke and I recently picked up a new one.  The back had blown out of Jon's blanket a while back and he has been asking me to fix it.  

I finally got the chance. 

Just for fun - 

Here is Jon in January of 2008 when I made him his blanket.  

So cute.

And here he is today when he got his blanket back - just like new!

Get out there and sew something!  They'll thank you for it!
