A spring tutorial! Hannah’s been more and more interested in flowers this year as they bloom all over. She’s been picking dandelions everywhere we go, and digging holes in the mulch in the backyard with the gardening tools her grandparents gave her. I do not have a green thumb, but she’s fascinated. So I’ve been brainstorming some gardening projects we could do together, for me to learn some things and for her to watch things grow.

I made these disco pumpkins as a centerpiece for our dining room table to celebrate Thanksgiving. I bought that platter at Target when the fall stuff first came out, and I love it.

Although twins are usually pretty tiny, so it may still be a while before their little heads fit them.

I made this Dr. Seuss-themed quilt for Hannah’s first birthday, but I never put together a tutorial for it. So, in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday today I thought I’d post some instructions for this one! You can obviously use any fun kid fabrics you have, but I’m not a big fan of pastels. I love this stark black contrasted with bold and bright primaries.

See that page over on the left sidebar that says “Crafty Tutorials?” It has been sitting sadly with only two tutorials since I relaunched this blog last summer. I’m currently remedying that. Now it’s up to a whopping 5 tutorials!
