happy mother's day!

after such a productive first day of being homebound, the rest of the week was the exact opposite!  i did cook a few yummy dinners (brown sugar/mustard glazed ham steak, lasagne, and pioneer woman's pan fried round steak!)

and i rearranged the older boys' room.  isn't it funny how moving things around can make such a difference?  they were super excited and the room feels bigger now.  i also tackled cleaning the couches in the family room.  then i decided i should make some new throw pillows.  here's one i'm working on!  remember jenifer's applique class i took?

swim said the mama

i machine quilted a bunch of wavy lines to be the water, and then used some pearl cotton from granny marie's stash to do a simple running stitch around each of the fish.  i am using a ds quilts fabric for the backing. i worked on that while catching up on my latest obsession, true blood. i'm on season 2!  troy is a saint and watches it with me, shaking his head the whole time!

i donned my favorite apron today to do some damage in the kitchen!

i'm baking pie for mother's day dinner tonight at troy's mom's. made this apple pie and i also did banana pudding from this recipe. only i made a cinnamon graham crust and am skipping the meringue.  i can't wait for dessert!  it smells amazing in here!  happy mother's day, all you wonderful mommas out there!
