Merry & Bright

I've decided to join another quilt-along.

Why yes, I am crazy act

Apparently, my need to quilt trumps my desire to keep a spotless house. I've heard that a spotless house is a sign of a wasted life anyway, so I think I'm doing a good job
of living on the edge. ;o)

So, here's a sneak peek at the quilt I call "Merry & Bright". It s
hould be finished in a week or two and will be put into the Etsy shop. We just don't need anymore quilts here, in Florida, during the summer.

And if you think you're up to joining the quilt-along, you can find us by clicking on the logo.

Reflecting on summer so far

Summer is FLYING by! More so for the kiddos than for me. Big T is dreading starting the 6th grade - more scared actually. Little M is still trying to figure out a new routine. I think we're finally dropping a nap, but we haven't merged the two naps into one yet. He's been taking two naps, but they're shorter and getting closer together. We'll get there. We still haven't lost the binkies yet. I just don't have the heart, especially now that he can say the word "binky", which comes out "peen-key" in Little M style.

Both boys just seem to be growing like weeds ... *sigh*

Okay ... my feet HURT!

I managed to get a LOT done today, but didn't take a single picture. Not. even. one. I bought some rechargable batteries at Target last night, but failed to actually put them in the camera. So, no pics today - and now that it's raining and dark, I can't take any now either.

I WILL have some pictures tomorrow though - and I also intend to work on a nice header for the blog ... I'm full of ideas and fresh out of energy to get it done tonight.

The most exciting news though is that Rachel, over at p.s. i quilt is giving away a $50 gift certificate for the Fat Quarter Shop. I don't know about you, but I have my eye on some Christmas fabric (among other things). Head on over to her site and sign up for the giveaway!

I have a blog!

I figure that now is as good a time as any to start blogging ... it seems like everyone else is doing it, why not me?

I finally have the house cleaned up, getting ready for taco night with the family. (I LOVE tacos!) Of course, it's always nice to have the house clean anyway, so tacos or no tacos, it needed to get done. I also managed to clean off the dining room table so that we could use it tonight ... imagine ... eating on the table instead of wherever we can find a spot! Craziness!!

Anyway, no quilting today, but I intend to drag everything out later this evening after dinner. You didn't think that the table would stay clean for more than a few hours did you? ;o)
