Its Birthday Time...

 Last night I was up till I don't want to think about how late cutting out little triangles for a certain someone's birthday banner.  It seems my found time to craft and meditate at this point is the after 9PM slot.  I sat in my softly lit corner listening to this and it was kind of a little heaven on earth.  I think its my current favorite talk.  Thomas S. Monson just has a way of delivering what you need to hear.  And if I can listen to it while playing with fabric?  All the better!

Anyway, back to our birthday boy.
He may just be the same kid who woke up with a totally dry pull up this morning. (WOO HOO!!! cue: screaming, joyous angels singing...)  I can't believe my little guy is going to be 3!
Wasn't it just yesterday that he looked like this?? 

Carver has recently started to love to color and draw.  Especially with his "marks" as he calls them.  So I thought I'd make him a little carrying case for all those important artistic coloring tools of his.

Once again this pattern comes from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson.  Oh how I love the patterns and projects in this book.  Maybe we should do a little giveaway of this book since it seems to be my favorite thing right now.  We'll do some thinking about that.  Anyway,  my hope is to finish this little present in time so that I can embroider his name on it too.

We'll see how it goes!

And speaking of really great things to make you think.  I don't know if you read CJane but if you don't, you should and you should start with her post today.  I loved it.
