To Do #1
Is there ever too much celebration for a three-year-old’s birthday? We don’t think so. Since Addison’s birthday fell during the workweek, we had a small celebration on Saturday morning. That gave us a chance to give Addi our birthday gifts and sing the birthday song one more time. It never gets old, plus it’s another chance to blow out candles. Our littles need all the practice they can get with that!
Yesterday was the official launch party for the Stay At Home Round Robin 2022 (SAHRR). The very first step is to choose your center block which will be enhanced with prompts for the next six rounds. Check out the details and link up your choice at Quilting Gail’s website if you’d like!
Just seeing that happy yellow fabric again makes me smile. We may need to add something creative to the center before we finish!
New year, new project . . . isn’t that how the saying goes? What? That’s not a saying . . . well, it certainly should be. An appliqué project, at that, for our sweet pea Colty. He is a master already at everything active – jumping, throwing, galloping, running. There’s not a slow bone in his body anywhere! Sue found this inspiration piece on Pinterest (where else?!!) and we made just a few additions or modifications to the concept.
We plan to include soccer, football, baseball, basketball, and golf as a nod to his dad’s love of the game. Colt already plays indoor basketball and has a fairly good arm for a young man who isn’t two yet. We have the first soccer ball made but I had some challenges marking out the hexagon shapes that are formed in the white areas. Hopefully, Colty won’t question why his soccer ball has pie-shaped areas. HAHA! Good thing there are five other soccer balls to practice on – I might just get it straight by the last one.
To-Do for the week of January 11th through 17th:
- Work on Round One prompt for the SAHRR from Anja
- Do more appliqué blocks for Colty’s quilt – there are a total of 30 in all
- That’s it – a short, stress-free list!
