It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I have a tendency to get so wrapped up in the book I’m writing that I forget about everything else while I’m working on it. But I’ve been getting some emails wondering if we’re okay and when I spoke at a guild a few weeks back I had so many people ask how the boys were doing. They mentioned that there haven’t been any updates on the blog. It was a good reminder that I need to get back here! I just turned the book into the printer last Friday, so now I can breathe a sigh of relief and attend to a few of the neglected areas in my life – like blogging.
The boys are doing great – they’ve been healthy and busy. Max is 2 1/2 and he’s a happy kid. He loves dinosaurs, being outside, and doing anything with his brother – including destroying anything he happens to be building. I started potty training with him last weekend. He seems to be highly motivated by jelly beans, so I’m grateful for that!
Carter is 4 3/4 (that is what he will tell you) and he’s into Legos, he loves reading books, and he has just learned to write simple words and has been fascinated with practicing his words. Yesterday he wrote “mom big pig” and thought it was hilarious. I silently snickered . . . I guess developing a sense of humor is important for him too. Despite what it said, that sheet will go in the memory box as his first written sentence. We have also been reading the Little House on the Prairie books and I’m not sure who’s more thrilled – him or me!
As far as quilting goes, I have a pile of new things to share that I’ve been working on over the last eight months. They will all be in the new booklet that I mentioned. It’s really different from what I have been doing so I’m anxious/nervous/excited to put it out there and see what happens. I also have a new fabric line that I just got the okay on to share. That will be in my next post – so stop back shortly to see it. I promise it won’t be three months ;-). Here’s a sneak peek at the chevron fabric I designed for the line. It’s perfect for binding and Starstruck blocks.
In the meantime, here are a few photos taken over the last few months. Thanks for stopping by!
