OK I have officially finished cutting all the little pieces of my next quilt! I haven't done many but this is the first one that I would consider having lots of little pieces. There is a reason for me being so excited. When I spent a month at Camilles house... (Not a whole month, but we were there a lot.) I would watch her neatly stack her little squares and triangles for whatever quilt she happened to be working on at the time, and I loved them. Those tiny neat little piles had my whole heart! Well I officially have little stacks of my own and they have stolen my heart completely. Do I sound ridiculous? I think I might, but at least I have something to blame. Fruit Soup. Need I say more? I think it has been toxic to my brain, but in a good way... Considering the bowls upon bowls I have eaten today, I think I can safely say I am drunk on it! Which would explain my raving about little neat piles of fabric. Anyway I am off to possibly start sewing them together, or possibly have more fruit soup, or maybe I should play with Jonas, he has been slightly neglected today with all the cutting and stacking that has been going on.
Oh and P.S. as you can see I am doing a Thimble Blossoms, Peppermint Posies Quilt, but I really don't want to do peppermints, they seem so Christmassy to me and unfortunately the fabric I am using is so not Christmassy. Anyway I guess I am just out of ideas for some cute applique. If anyone has a thought I sure would appreciate it!
For everyone who checks up on us to see the little guy, here is a recent video of his awesome dance moves! I think he gets them from his Dad, obviously. Oh and please excuse the shaky camera, I could not hold still because of the laughing.
Also here is a shot of one of his favorite things to do. I'm not sure why, but he loves to sit under a blanket, he especially likes it when someone is under there with him but he does just fine on his own too. Weird kid!
