BONDING WITH BIG BROTHER
Bean came out to spend some time with us on Tuesday, He was excited about my new Big Brother who is living in my sewing room, and we had to demonstrate a few of the features. Bean especially liked the alphabet scripts that my Brother can do, and we had to decorate a few pieces of fabric. The first one had to say his name, the date, and be decorated with some hearts and flowers and other fancy stitches. Then he sweetly asked if we could do one for his sister, Java. He even knew her birth date and wanted that included on her little piece of muslin. Then he got the bright idea to make one for his parents. That one was to say 'Kari and StarBUCK forever' and was also decorated with hearts and flowers. It was so cute. He stuffed his three prize pieces of muslin into his jeans pockets and was excited to go home and show his family. And of course I neglected to take pictures. But I have a feeling I will have to lock up Big Brother. All it took was for me to show Bean one time how it worked, and he stood there and picked the stitches for the next two.
It was 30 degrees this morning but by the weekend it will be in the 70's. The grass is greening up and the birds are chirping and it smells fresh and new. I love spring!
