A Day in the Life....

Well it's been a few weeks since I've blogged last and a lot has been going on. Unfortunately, it hasn't been all that interesting re: sewing and quilting! We've had two sick pets, some wisdom teeth removed, strange rashes and car repairs! Kinda crazy - but the pets are now on the mend, the teeth are gone and my stepson's mouth is healing and the car is in the shop. All is well, but I do think it was kinda weird/funny that I was syringe feeding almost everyone in my house last Friday!

As for projects, I whipped up this little hat for Miss G recently. I've had the Lazy Day pattern for quite some time now but finally pulled it out and made a "test" hat using some Ikea fabric I had laying around. This one turned out a little too big but my three year old will eventually grow into it. What I love about it is that it's reversible. She's asked me to make her another one using Hello Kitty fabric:)

I've had one last block to make for Shea for the Pieced Together Quilting Bee II. I honestly don't know why I haven't finished it before
now because I've never been this late before for anyone!! I really need to apologize to Shea but I think that with all of the changing rooms in my house, some worries about family and taking care of my little ones - well you know the rest. I hate when something is nagging at you and you avoid it....well I guess that saying is true "the more you resist, it persists!"
So, I made Shea's block this afternoon using Moda's crossweaves. Shea's color selection is bold and beautiful in my opinion. I really like how my block turned out because it really was made improv style!

Her only request was that the block was made with 90 degree angles, no wonkiness....squares, rectangles, or strips. I hope she likes it!
I have to run right now because my little one is not wanting to go to bed and my husband and I would like to watch a movie together (which is a rare thing these days:)
More tomorrow!
