I started cutting into the fabrics for quilt #4 for McCall's
These colors are just so much fun!
I cut out 9 x 99 2 1/2" squares = 891 :-)
Looks good in a circle like this
first step done and I don't think I can show you any more....
okay, just ONE more pic :-)
One way I got to sew some more- having Sonja strapped to me, killed my back though, so I had a small pillow in my lap and she "sat" on that so the weight was off my shoulders/back
Yesterday my 1st daughter Solveig turned 8 years old, we had a little party for her.
A friend of mine started a tradition with her kids, which we
stole/ adopted, each person gets a candle to put in the cake and while they do it, they say something nice about the birthday person, it's very sweet! My son didn't know what to say, and Solveig yelled- don't you want to say I'm your favorite sister?? but being a sensitive guy, he said, that wouldn't be fair to Sonja.... awww.
Opening presents! tissues flying everywhere!
Here's some Sonja pics :-)
someone found her FIST!!
