thank goodness. i'm ready to put last week behind me. that stomach bug just hung on, leaving me queasy and cranky and tired for most of the week. my appetite finally came back yesterday - it was amazing how much clearer my head was once i'd had a real meal.
i didn't get much done last week - aside from napping and catching up on project runway & 30rock. but i *did* get a few quilt squares finished.
wonky log cabins for becca. these are one of my favorite blocks - they're easy and forgiving of errors. ;) basically, you start with a center block, then add a strip and turn, add a strip and turn until it's as big as you want it to be. and aren't these happy fabrics?
string blocks for katie. she hooked us up with this tutorial - i loved this technique. i was really surprised at how many strips it took to finish a block, though!! i adored her color palette, and need to pick up a few of these fabrics for my own stash.
this weekend was filled with a lot of outside playtime, errand running, and cleaning. not so fun, but so needed. and this kiddo is star of the week in his class next week, so we spent some time printing pics and filling out his all about me poster. i managed to convince him to let me get some photos of that sweet gap toothed grin, too. love the smiles at this age. =)
i love that he picked a pic of himself w/ the clone troopers to put on his poster - ha!!
today = more cleaning - it's amazing what a week of neglect can do to a house - & i'm stalking the mailman in hopes of getting my march studio calico kit. my desk is clean and ready for some scrap time. =)
