Watching February go.....

A sunny but blustry cold day, a road trip and warm fuzzies for my heart and memories. My February finishes *VBS*, this little maple leaf quilt. I finally got the last of the binding done and the ribbon stems added.
 And #2, a new crocheted rug from fabric strings. This one is 31" round and is finished. And I've begun another, so I have one "in progress". The majority of the day was spent in travel and in this...
 Baby L's first birthday party. I have lots and lots of pictures but this one and the next are probably my favorites. His mom was smart and took off his Onesie and shirt. After the spaghetti episode she knew what to expect...LOL. He didn't disappoint us!
 He had at a really nice big PIECE of cake(vs. the whole cake) and he knew what to do with it. He cracked up when we sang Happy Birthday to him, and didn't hesitate to pick up the whole big piece, digging his finger into it, on both sides, and bitting it. A bit later we gave him a small scoop of ice cream and he picked it up and began eating it, apparently the cold didn't disturb him at all! He finished up by crewing on the Jungle Animal plate from his cake . Must have been tasty as he really worked it over. Two of his cousins, the young bandits of my youngest son, joined him in the party and a fun time was had by all. Everybody really enjoyed it! Six adults and 3 kids works really well...wish I had those odds when mine were young *VBS* Happy last day of February to all!! Hugs, Finn

Now that's a happy birthday boy! Thanks for sharing your family celebration.

Your little rug is beautiful. And thanks for getting up on your soapbox. I support a local group that feeds people daily, and your post reminds me that I should add a bit more to my donations since, as you say, the need is so great right now.

Looks like that little birthday boy truly enjoyed his cake!

I love that little maple leaf quilt....and always like seeing those rugs you crochet. I have started one, but it's only about 8 inches in diameter. Need to sew some strings together. I'm saving them in shoebox.

What a birthday party! He sounds like such a happy, good-natured kid (but messy!). I like your maple leaf quilt -- great fabric choices.
