So I made some for my friend's daughter, Gracie. There was some really cute fabrics here too, I liked the Noah's Ark print and there was a flip-flop pattern. Making these for her gives me the opportunity to make some girl themed cases.
He has the funniest look, like he was thinking "I was just trying to clean up! I didn't do anything wrong."
He started squirting the water on the floor and wiping up the spot. He is such a little sweetheart!

Michelle and I met for lunch today at Captain D's (one of my favorite places for Iced Tea! She is the one that got me started on the eye spy quilt (thank you!!) and gave me several squares for it. She is interested in a getting a new laptop, so I took mine to Captain D's so she could check it out.
We took a web cam picture of all of us. I'm on the left, Mark is behind me, then Kasey in the front. Michelle is on the right with her son Cooper, who is 3.
I am trying to get her to blog. Maybe if she gets a NEW computer, she will!

This is a puzzle quilt I made for Kasey. He really likes the colors on it. I liked making it and had to put a lot of thought into how to arrange the colors to fit right.I made this quilt for my step-daughter for her bed. It was a fun quilt to make too. I just stacked all the blocks up and chain sewed. I can't remember the name of the pattern, but it was from Take Two, by Atkinson Designs.
He was bad today, climbing all over things, we have been trying to teach him not to do that, so we put him in timeout (which right now is a playpen). He likes to say "bad, bad, bad" all the time, so I told him he was "bad, bad Kasey". He just looked at me and pointed his little finger at me and said "Bad, bad Momma". Needless to say, it was so cute, I could hardly say anything to him.
No quilting this weekend. I went upstairs and sat around in my quilt room for a while, but just couldn't get motivated to do anything. I am a little lost right now in my quilting. Just don't know what to do.
I think I am hooked right now on reading quilt blogs and looking for patterns to print out.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Kasey, who is 20 months old, got in my step-daughter's mascara today and got it all over him. He broke the wand, so she won't be happy about that. For some reason, he liked the taste of it. I don't think he got very much of it in his mouth, but he thought it was a lot of fun.
We had a lot of ice today. Our nephew, Connor came over and played with the neighbor boy. They found a big icicle underneath the back deck. The hot tub is leaking water under the deck and they thought that was really cool. I didn't tell them where it came from. It was really cold today, probably didn't get up to 20 degrees. Had lots of sleet and rain. Schools are closed today and Friday. Connor is on the right, neighbor Lakia, on the left.

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

The details of left brained really fits me. It's interesting when you do these things and see how they correspond.
I am getting all my quilt patterns organized. I have a lot that I have printed off the Internet so I made a binder up for table runners and have put all those patterns in there. Now I need to get 2 more binders, one for just patterns and then one for Kids Quilt Patterns. I have several of those.
Does anyone have good ideas for organizing their patterns? I thought about creating a binder for already created quilts. Then if I wanted to make a quilt I had already done, I would know it was in that binder.
