What a busy, but fun, week! We went to three Valentine's parties and had lots of sweets - and lots left over. We did quite a bit of school, but we've really been concentrating on math.

Today, we went with our co-op friends to buy some yarn at a yarn store. Wow! There are so many to choose from! You'll have to stay tuned to see what we'll be making with this as Ms. S and her daughters teach us a few things.

Alexandra and I are hand-sewing a bunny from a kit. We cut it out a few weeks ago, and I'd made some mistakes. So, we fixed our problems tonight and got to start sewing. Alexandra helped with some of the whipstitching.

And, Alexandra whip stitched this little teddy bear about a month ago. She decided she didn't want any facial features. I got the pattern from another blog, but I don't remember which one right now! Didn't it turn out cute? I thought she did a great job!

And, our seeds we planted last week are really sprouting! In fact, we weren't expecting anything for about 10 days and the sunflowers (photographed today at 5 days) in less than 48 hours!

Our seedlings look more like plants already. Some of ours also sprouted in less than 2 days too.

I loved the little teddy bear that Alexandra made. How cute he/she is. She did a wonderful job. Our seeds are also sprouting and we have some sunflower plants that are over 4" tall. I can't believe how fast they grow.

OH, that teddy bear is precious! I kind of like it with no facial features. That way you can imagine any scenario you want and the teddy looks just right!
Your seedlings look pretty cool! Sunflowers do grow pretty fast. You'll probably have to transplant them into bigger pots when they start hitting the top of the little greenhouse. I was so upset when my sunflower got to be big enough last year, and some animal snatched it right off my deck and left the stem and leaves in the yard.
