Sew ‘n Tell Friday

Does this still count as Friday? I’m still working hard on my Woodland Enchantress. I’m loving how the snow is a blue and deep purple shade. See that new grey tree or two? I’m loving it! Maybe I will finish it this winter. AppleBlossom (age 5) has finished her rainbow since Wednesday! Can you believe it?! I had the Enginerd stop on his way home to buy her a new kit.

I was so excited about making this blog post and I’ve been taking pictures galore of the process and locating old babbie prominent photos on my computer. Then I started to type of this post, and was shocked when WordPress prompted me to make this …/making-babbies-2/. 2? What does it mean by two?! Well onto searching my archives and what do I find but a long forgotten post from 2011 (the arrival of my last baby and current toddler) all about making babbies. Well that burst my bubble!

So let me refresh that post a bit with old information, new information,. . .
