I am loving the weird facts you can read in the Snapple bottle caps.
This is another thing I didn't know...in fact, I wasn't even aware that there is a "rose family". Oh well...live and learn, right?! And no-one can know everything!
I have sent off my doll quilt for the DQS9, and it has been well received. That's always a nervous time...will my partner like what I made for her?! But she did, and I am relieved!
This round I have also been a swap mama, and the super talented Lucinda made a chair-quilt for each mama in the swap!!! How cool is she?! I love the chair she made for me, it is such a treasure :)
I have been working on a quilt for my bed. It is not a huge bed, but big enough that it is going to be quite a challenge to quilt it. So far it is 85" square - and I have no idea how I am going to wrestle that through my sewing machine, but I am sure going to give it my best shot!
The quilt is made from several packs of Punctuation charm squares - now I am waiting for the yardage I ordered for the backing to arrive!
Also...I want to show you the rows I have received from my fabulous Row10 friends. I love this quilt so much already!! Maybe I will use some kind of quilt-as-you-go methos for quilting this one....still debating!
My evergrowing scrappile is also keeping me busy, I have wanted to piece circles for a while, and it seemed like a good way to use some scraps. This is not a fast quilt to cut. For these blocks I do find the actual piecing much easier than the cutting.
But I will finish it!!! I will!!
Miss V is enjoying school so much - I am still a wreck, but better me than her!
My job is very time-consuming right now, but we're supposed to get some help in another month or so, hopefully that'll make it better ;)
I still do enjoy my job very much, however, I also feel like I am missing out on so much with the kids. It's all about compromize I guess.
