I gave the boys a bath together for the first time. It went well and it save me time--double bonus! Of course, Cian had to give me a few stink faces while taking pictures.....
Roarke helped me make dinner last night (turkey meatballs with spaghetti squash). I'm always amazed how much better he eats when I let him help. By better, I don't mean more, the kid eats plenty, but he eats more vegetables without hesitation. I MAY have lied and told him the squash was pasta, but it looks like pasta and you cover it with sauce, so does it really make any difference?
I finished by bee blocks for Tracey. She asked for a cartwheel block and a tree block of our own design. She did want one ticker tape tree and since I hadn't tried that style yet, I volunteered. These blocks are huge (22.5" square), but they really didn't take me any longer than a "normal." I'm considering asking them to make big blocks for me too--so much less work for me later! :)
My best friend was in town over the holiday weekend and since her birthday is this month, I offered to make her a skirt. I really love the fabric she chose (called Emmaline in Teal)
When I ordered the fabric for Stephanie's skirt, it came with a free fat quarter of the super yummy Birch organic fabric with cars on it. Now, I've been trying to get my 3 year old to pick out some fabric he liked so I could make him a blanket and a quilt. He never likes anything. Of course, he would love the super expensive organic fabric! I decided to make him a couch blanket because he has no patience. He kept asking me where his blanket was, hence the simple design. :) I backed this with chenille so it's super soft and snuggly on the back.
