At my house it seems as if things never slow down, everything just seems to move faster. I'm always so glad when Friday comes. I allow myself some relaxing time, which if you ask my husband is something I rarely do.
I finally finished my block for sister's weekend.
If you look at the picture you also get a hint into the other activities that have been occupying our time. Here is a little closer look at the detail in the center of the block.
I thought it would be fun to have a little writing on the block. I used the color orange to match the outside squares. At this point I'm super happy with the way this block looks. Now just to make 8 more or so, but I've done the hard part cutting the fabric. Now I just get to sew.
But that isn't all I've been working on.
Bonnie moved into a bunk bed two weeks ago and we didn't have any twin size blankets for her to use. So Jay suggested I use some of my fabric to make her a blanket, I looked at him and said, "Challenge accepted." I don't think he even knew what I had in mind. I've been thinking about making the kids coin blankets for a while but just had never gotten around to it. I've finished the top for Bonnie's bed and now just need to quilt it. I'm pretty excited about this.
Also, Grandma Charlotte didn't listen to you. She is still growing.
