New Quilt

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 10:03 am

My cousin T. Patrick Mullen (aka “Pat”) took up quilting a few years ago, after retiring from being a college professor. He’s been working on this quilt for us for a long time and we just got it in the mail yesterday and it’s beautiful!!  He chose 1930s reproduction fabrics to commemorate fun times with my mom (they played together as kids, a lot in Puget Sound and Lake Chelan, which is why there are so many beach & water patterns, I think).  It’s a beautiful piece of art!  Thank you Pat!

Get off, Pickles!!

Lake Leo

We’ll be sad when it’s gone!  Only two ducks left in a very small pond.  But we did have fun!

Finn Turns Five

It’s hard to say what the highlight was — the crown, the cake or the new Playmobil porta-potty.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Georgetown MA Kayak Rental Now Open for Businesss!

Anything that gets the kayak in the water more is a good thing, right?  Leo loves that his yard is now a pond — or a lake.  The ducks like it, too.

March tease

Finn and Leo watch the dump truck across the street.

I’m glad the cookie crumbs match the sweater.

Three boys enjoy some warm March weather.

“More dread”

(That’s what little Henry used to call bread, which I would bring to him when I babysat. That was ten years ago. I’m sensing a theme here!)

Seeded Fougasse, a shameless rip-off of the one made by A&J King Bakery in Salem, MA.

Ciabatta rolls, made from the same dough as the fougasse.  The ciabatta recipe came from “BakeWise” and is an adapted version of Carol Field’s recipe in “The Italian Baker”.

Name that movie!

Donncha, the sneak thief, stealing a roll!

My best taste tester!

My first ciabatta came out nicely.  So did my nephew.

Isn’t it funny how people sometimes begin to look like the bread they eat?
