My baby's 4!!!

Yesterday was a day for Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter icing. Four candles decorated the cake for the very happy little boy (who has been telling me to "just make my cake" for the last week...)
When he gets older, we'll have to get him a camera. He sneaks off with the camera when nobody's looking and takes pictures of all kinds of things. He's very proud of them. We're thankful it's digital and not film....
This is his forhead....
He got tractors. A favorite toy around here. They boys are fascinated when the tractors are in the field behind our house.
It's sad that's he's 4, now. And I really feel like he skipped the baby stage. At 44-45 inches tall and with 3 older siblings, he very quickly caught them and so many of their abilities.

Anyway.... Happy Birthday, Baby!

What to do next....

While I'm working on my applique for my quilt, I started thinking about the next quilt to make. So, I went back through some of my designs....

An idea for my sons... Two different colorations of the same quilt..... Or two different quilts with the same colors... Need to decide about that....

Shining Stars

An idea for my oldest daughter.... She loves the "fire colors" (red, orange and yellow) which happen to clash harshly with the preferences of her sister, with whom she shares a room...

Star Burst

Created in a moment of insanity.... Or maybe it was sanity.... There is a more complicated version this saved, too. More points.... Tons of fabric (about 60 yards??)...

Gypsy

This idea was originally started as a thought about my kids and their constant state of motion. Then it started looking like fancy chocolates.....

Chocolate

All that remains.... What to do next???
