This week has been crazy busy! Yikes! Thank goodness for weekends. The scary part? I don't even work in the summer! Does anyone else find themselves day dreaming about fabrics and blocks through out the day? My brain always seems so scattered, scattered, scattered. I apologize if this post mirrors my brain!
Week three in the Rockin' Robin Quilt- Along is a continuation of the awesomeness that started 3 weeks ago. Houses! Cute, little houses. Just like the one I live in (I am referring to the little part).
Melissa at Lilac Lane said " The whole time I was sewing this row, I could hear, "Love grows best in little houses . . ." in my head". I immediatley related because my house is little (very, very little). It was perfectly cute and adorable when I was a young newlywed. It was our first home together, situated on 3 acres of unruly cottonwood trees and alders. We cleared the lot by hand and it took an entire summer. Ten years and 3 children later, we are getting ready to transition into our work in progress, bigger home. I am naturally excited, as the kids will have more space and I will have a sewing room. But the move is also bittersweet. I always felt a little "house on the prairie" in our trailer. All of us, in one room, talking, laughing, sewing, reading... I hope we don't lose that in our bigger space. All these thoughts were triggered by a quilt block! See? Scattered, scattered, scattered.
turtle quilt perfectly. I'm sure that's another sign, right?
One more thing... A picture of my quilt row was featured on the Gen X quilters site! I am so darn excited! In case you were curious, it is the picture in the middle.
Also, a quick update on the Batcave saga:
The Batcave is still under siege! Lego minifigures have taken over and Batman is nowhere to be found. I have lost my kitchen/sewing table in the war between Lego and Imaginex.
