Whew, what a morning!
I went out early on this cold winter morning to start my Suburban so it would be all nice and toasty for the ride to take Wyatt to school, only to find that the battery was dead. Fabulous. Roger was already at work with the spare carseats in his car, so I had to make a short run to the barn and fire up his farm truck. I guess it is a good thing it has an extended cab so we can fit the kids in the back, but it is a huge pain in the rear to get three carseats back there, especially the enormous ones that Carson and Max ride in. I got them all in and drove back to the house to get the boys only to realize the gas tank was on empty. Luckily our tank at the house still had a little in it, so I got to stand out in the dark and pump gas, too. Only, I was wearing Wyatt's gloves and got gas on them. Oops.
So, my son got to go to preschool wedged in the back of an old beater truck wearing one red mitten and one blue glove. And when his teacher came around to get him out, as she opened the door a coffee cup fell out and started to blow across the parking lot before she chased it down. I am sure to win Mother of the Year, right?
Ok, on to the real reason you're here...
I finished Carson's blanket in time for his birthday, but have yet to get any pictures of it. He was really excited about it for maybe a minute or two, then he dropped it on the floor and went to look for his tractor. But, he did want to sleep with it that night, so I suppose he likes it. Hopefully I'll get pictures soon.
My January blocks for do. Good Stitches are finished, details are here.
I paper pieced these little hearts yesterday, but I really have no plans for them yet. I like the top two, but I think the bottom one needs a little work. The patterns I used can be found here.
Still working on blocks for the Japanese x and + block swap. I've only gotten one more done, so this may be a fairly small swap from my end. Like...5 blocks. So maybe I'll have a mini quilt when we're all done?
I should be getting fabric in the mail soon to start on January's block for the Modern Blocks Bee.
Alisha has requested the Quatrefoil block and will be using Bliss, so I'm sure it will be beautiful. Can't wait to get started on this Bee. I've also signed up for the second round of the For the Love of Solids Swap and am so excited about this one. Should be great fun! Here's the mosaic I made for inspiration:
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
