Can you guess what I am up to? Cutting, that's what. Got my instructions, my zip lock baggies for my pieces, my iced tea--I am good for a marathon cutting session.
I am cutting out not one, but two kits for gorgeous Civil War quilts. I am going to be traveling next week to meet up with a dear blogging friend, and take a few classes.
Sometimes when one orders kits, the fabrics are a disappointment, have you noticed? Not this time. I would say I approved of 80% of the fabrics in the first kit, and nearly 100% of the fabrics in the second. I am fortunate to have a nice stash of Civil War fabrics (mostly acquired the last time I took a quilting related trip to Illinois and Wisconsin), so I was able to easily swap out the fabrics I didn't love with some from my stash.
I have a couple of trips planned for the next few weeks, so my blogging will be sporadic. In the meanwhile, enjoy this fun picture of my darling Baby E. She is into absolutely everything lately, and I cannot take my eyes off of her for a second. Today, while I was auditioning outfits for my first trip, she climbed into the bathtub and proceded to play with her bath toys. The fact that she was completely clothed and that there was no water in the tub didn't phase her in the slightest. The tub was a play pen of sorts, so I just left her in it while I puttered around in my dressing room!
This was her trick last week. She opened the big drawer at the bottom of my tv console and climbed into it to read a book.
Have I mentioned recently how much I love her?
