Wedding Quilt Wrapup

I know I have overdone it with this wedding quilt, 
but I wanted to show you this one photo...

From the wedding. It is my Eden's signature square.

Finished Wedding Quilt

The Wedding Quilt is finished. 

And it is a good thing since the wedding is this Saturday. 

I hate that it was overcast when I took these pictures. 

But she really wanted the quilt, so I had to!

Here is some of the details. 
The wedding guests are going to sign the quilt. 
So I went ahead and quilted little triangles for them to sign. 

(Hopefully they will stay inside the lines.)

Finished size is 52x60.

My good little "Momma"

Bethy is one. 

And a wonderful little Momma. 

She is in love with her baby dolls. 
They are all over the house, 
in various shapes and sizes. 

But her favorite baby dolls, 
she is is just borrowing from her sister. 

Here is a perfect example:

the Master's Workshop

At her preschool end of the year program, 
my five year old, Eden, 
proudly exclaimed,
"When I grow up, I want to be a painter!"

She doesn't have to wait till then. 
For Eden, painting is a spiritual experience. 

Praising God for this gift of a child, given to my care. 
Praising God for this painter. 
And even praising God for this mess - because it is beautiful.

Pentecost Banner

Pentecost was celebrated at our church Sunday. 
So here is the banner and the way we used it in the back of the sanctuary. 

We added the words "Come Holy Spirit" on this wall, 
but also on all the other walls in the sanctuary. 

It looks pretty cool!

Pirate for Hire

Making a trip to the library a part of our every week routine, 
Eden found this book on the shelf! 

We had to bring it home.

It is a story of a pirate who is brought before the 
Pirate Council because he doesn't look the same. 
Or dress the same. 
Or have a parrot. 

So they kick him out of being a pirate. 

Without giving away the whole book, 
it is a fantastic tale about being yourself!
