Several months ago a friend gave me a "jelly roll", one of those cool rolls of precut stripes from Moda Fabrics. They come on so many pretty prints! Mine was Hometown by Sweetwater.
I finally decided what to do with it. Well, part of it, the blue and red stripes. It's amazing how a jelly roll goes a long way.
First, I made a table runner using this tutorial again. I followed the same tutorial to make a Christmas table runner last year. Now I have a table runner to use all year long on my Ikea trunk that I use as a coffee table. I store extra blankets inside.
I am not a quilter, I don't have a fancy sewing machine, but I really enjoyed making these projects! Now I still have yellow and grey fabric from the same jelly roll, and I am thinking... soon I will post new stuff.
I have been lazy on my blogging.
So, let me share some pretty Spring flowers I got recently.
Anyways, I am working on a couple of new things, and hope to post again soon.
Have a great day !

We had a great time, just the three of us. The Easter bunny made his visit and gave Brenda candies, coins, a book, and nail polish.
My decor was nearly the same from last year,with very little changes.
While Spring cleaning, I found an old Easter basket that I made for Brenda when she was almost two years old.
The cute flower buttons were recycled from one of Brenda's baby dresses. I added a bit of felt, ric-rac, and hand embroidery. Here are some pictures I took just before Easter.
Anyways, back to this year. We had a delicious Easter dinner and appetizers.
Brenda and Daddy made Deviled Egg Chicks from Family Fun and Pinterest .
The green plate was my birthday gift, a set of two.
It has been quite a ride for us since we found out about Brenda's Neurofibromatosis.
We are more mature now, and have learned a lot about NF. Our faith has improved over the years. We have found great doctors and some amazing families that live with NF like us. It give us hope and support. Brenda is doing very well. She is a sweet little girl that has great faith in Jesus Christ, and we are very proud of her.
We are on Spring break this week with lots to do. We are doing Spring cleaning, gardening, a play date, and going to the movies to see Mirror, Mirror. I have some projects to share, but it will be for another post.
Have a wonderful day!
