Mom leaves tomorrow. :(
Has been a good visit!
Today she helped me by making lots of bias binding for me. I hate doing that. She loves it. Perfect!
I did some work on a Christmas gift... Cut up some charm pack scraps and glued them onto blank stationary. Will randomly stitch around it and trim it around the paper. I'll make 4 or so and tie them together with their envelopes and cute ribbon. Instant gift. Will try to post pictures.
I also made progress on my second butterfly quilt for a baby that's due in May. I'd love to finish it by Christmas to give it to the mommy-to-be... but I think that's probably overly optimistic. However, I have everything I need as far as backing/batting/binding now... I might be able to pull it off. Maybe.
Am hopeful I can get an hour or two of sewing in tomorrow during naps. Maybe some more after I get the kids to bed. Bedtime around here has become a real struggle for the kiddos. I'm going to have to make some changes.
I think my 2 year old is ready for some normalcy. We've had company, daddy's been gone... Brother's been grumpy and we are all sleep-deprived. He wants as much of my attention as possible. And he also wants me to take him to the zoo. Every day. *sigh* He was kicking his bedroom door and sounding really pitiful for the better part of an hour (with a couple of interruptions of giggles when I relented by going into his room to dry his tears)...
My 3 year old insisted (at 11:45 pm tonight) that since he was still awake, it'd be a great idea to go visit his grandparents who live 20 minutes away. Needless to say, that didn't happen.
Maybe I should get some sleep since they're sleeping now... Sorry for the lack of pictures the last few days. Will make up for it soon. I promise!
