Wednesday, March 10

I'm so in love with my new quilt squares :-) I just can't wait to see them all together when it is all done! I really love the one with orange in the background - I think it is my favorite so far (hmm, I think Dustin has converted me to like the Cleveland Brown type colors - who would have thought!).

I love the next two pictures - normally, Brenna doesn't want to be in my pictures, but the last couple times I am photographing my new blocks, she wants to be included :-)

(yes, my daughter wears a tank top every day - at least for school I do have it as an underlayer, but as soon as we walk in the door, all the layers come off, lol)
Brenna enjoying our Snickerdoodle cake with Apple cinnamon frosting - yum! Happy birthday to all those March birthdays out there! (Joy - we continue to love our "cake" plates (at least that is what Brenna calls them) - thank you so much!)
Hello All!!!

Hope all is well out there! Things are good here. I had German class this morning while Brenna was in school (one would think with so many classes I would be speaking the language so much better, but alas, my studying habits need serious improvement). After class, I worked on sewing together my next pinwheel blocks. I just love my colors and seeing all my fabrics in a new way :-)
I was running late since I wanted to finish my blocks before picking up Brenna (which I didn't - but I was pretty close) and I got very lucky to run into one of the ladies that I met in Brenna's playgroup (from our first year here). She offered me a ride as she was picking up her daughter as well - how nice on such a cold windy day (normally I really appreciate the walking, but with the cold weather, I just want to stay curled up inside). We were able to communicate for the short trip to school - so, at least I was happy there, but I am pretty nervous to go to the group meeting on Friday morning for Brenna's kindergarten mom's (it is voluntary, but I think it would be good to go to the parent's meetings when I can - and Eiskaffee in Germany at 10:30 on a Friday morning sounds like a good plan :-) (so, cross your fingers that at least one person can understand my poor language skills or they all just take some pity on the silly American)...
Dustin is in Stuttgart today. I don't think Brenna will still be awake to see him when he gets home, I can't imagine that she has much more than 30 minutes before bedtime tonight as she woke up before 6 (which is not normal for her).
Well, I think that about covers our day! Take Care!

oh, your blocks are super cute and the cake sounds so yummy. I need you to come back to make the apple cinnamon frosting, chad so loves it, but I have no reason to make it! I can't wait for you to see some of my new fabric, necessary to use on the quilt along, I believe! I hope my blocks will be as beautiful as yours!
