What a Day!

Today was crazy! I finished laying out and piecing Taylor's baby quilt. It turned out so cute, even though I messed up majorly. You're supposed to use 4 blocks as the corner blocks in the border, but they are cut down to 6 1/2 inches square. Well either I can't measure, or I just was totally out of it for a brief moment because I screwed up bad! One block ended up 5 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches, and the other three blocks just looked awful. So, I had to quickly make a change. I substituted some 6 1/2 inch square blocks of the same fabric the binding will be out of. It looks good. I was going to take it up to the shop and put it in my quilting queue, but I don't have enought backing fabric. I'll have to go buy some when I get more money! :)

Shortly after I finished the quilt, my dearest Marshy-Marsh slipped and fell right into the fireplace hearth! It is a brick hearth, and it gashed his little noggin right open! :( Fortunately, it wasn't a very big ouch-y and it coagulated quickly. Marshy cried for a few minutes, mostly out of startlement, and then settled down with his dad in the recliner.

This picture took a lot of patience to get, as Marshy-Marsh loves to look at the camera when it makes the shutter noise. Plus, he loves to smile for the camera, even if he did just hurt his precious little head.

I've been wearing my apron at the floral the last two days, and I have to say it is AWESOME!! I love having a place to keep my order pad, pen, and cell phone. I can't wait to try it out with my quilting too! I'm always losing my measuring tape or my scissors, so it will be nice to have big pockets to hold everything! :)

Nice job. It seems like I mis-measure or something and end up thinking "what was I doing?" at some point during a quilt.

That age is so full of boo boos. Aw.

Aprons are great around the house. I'm not sure why women stopped wearing them?
