OK, go ahead and laugh - I did and so did they! With a holiday and school/work closed, I covered some ground and spent some time with the munchkins. They all have grown so (love that holey face - the granson's not mine). And Miss Thing will be 4 months - warning those boys they better be good to her as she's gonna get bigger than them. You know what they say about pay back.
But I didn't go the day with out sewing - I did a lot of mending while visiting - a jacket, stuffies, blankies and hemmed some pants. But it was still quality time. And my daughter made the most wonderful veggie soup in the Nutri-Bullet blender I got them for Christmas - delish!
Before I had my day off for play, I did finish up the Charming stars quilt. I used a caramel thread on the pieced back and a varigated caramel thread for the top. Hopefully I will get this one out for some 'sun' shots - if we ever get sun.
I thought I better get started on my Let's Book It project - the month is flying by. I am using a pattern I long ago printed off the net, but you can find it HERE on the Me and My Sister Designs site. It is called Ground Cover and so easy with a layer cake, but I can see this with scraps and yardage and even larger size squares for a quick donation quilt.
I have all the matched squares cut and stacked so I can assembly these right thru the machine for some quick piecing. I actually got down to the last four blocks and the furries (and my body) were calling for a nap. My goal for tomorrow is to finish up the blocks and a layout - maybe even a flimsie. I received a lovely large box of goodies from a bloggy friend and I am so anxious to play in it.
