I had quite a busy week. I subbed a couple of day, helped with some sick grand kids, spent fun time with grand kids, and actually did some sewing.
Avery and Peyton were not feeling well, but snuggling up in their mermaid tails certainly helped. I know I'm prejudice, but I think they are so darn cute!
This picture makes me laugh out loud! When it was nap time, Peyton wanted to keep reading instead of lying down. This is the face she made. I had to tell her twice, and the second time I was ready with the camera. hahaha I can only imagine that is the kind of face I'd make if someone told me that I had to stop sewing and go to sleep. 😏
Ronan was excited that I picked him up from school and that I was hanging out with him and his sisters. When he did the fist pump, he said, "Yes!" I'm sure I look like when someone asks me to go fabric shopping with them. 😂
I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with this whole bunch, but I loved every minute that I was there.
I did say that I got some sewing done. I don't have pictures of everything, but I've been working on projects made from layer cakes and jolly bars. (I have a couple of trunk shows coming up and I wanted to update and replenish my quilts.)
These two small quilts actually have pieced borders now, but I didn't take pictures when they were still on the wall. They were made entirely from a single layer cake and they measure approximately 36" square.
On Monday, I posted that I was working on my Precious Gem quilt. All of the 5" x 10" rectangles are sewn, trimmed, and pressed. I've got this pile of 84 HSTs almost all pressed and trimmed too. I hope to get both projects pieced this weekend or early next week.
While I've been working, Jack's been working on a few of his own projects. Here's the heliograph me made from scratch. He and a friend have been trying to make this work, but they need good sunlight for it to function properly. They are going to try this afternoon, even though it's going to be cold.
Maybe the decent weather will encourage me to take some quilt pictures outside. Or, maybe I'll just stay inside and sew.
