|Some handmade gifts for the girls from way back when --- Valentine's Day 2015.|
|Delicious baguettes made from this recipe and inspired by the awesome one's gifted to us by my friend Megan.|
The preschool teacher asked me to make curtains for the classroom, and I had initially thought I'd just whip up some quick rectangles out of printed fabric, but nothing I had seemed quite right. I started thinking, "What would Oona like?" and suddenly appliqued flowers seemed to be the only answer. I was happy to bring Spring to the classroom even if it's hiding from me everywhere else!
Extra time indoors has meant lots of crafting. I feel like there's a whole stack of projects I haven't gotten around to sharing here... that faded feeling I was talking about... lack luster about everything. And Oona draws non-stop, and Elsa is beginning to love it too, though she often prefers drawing on things other than paper... like doll faces and walls and computer screens! They've also been playing together much more... one of the good points of spending far too much time indoors. I am hopeful that we will be venturing out a lot more in the coming weeks... re-instituting daily walks... plotting and planning for our gardens, jumping in mud puddles and finding our energy again in that golden sunlight!
