- The twins unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper.
- Miss C found the mousse and made a beehive on top of her head.
- She also pumped her doll's hair full of hairspray.
- Someone dumped Cheerios all over the living room carpet and proceeded to smash them in.
- Miss C threw a horrible tantrum because I informed her we were not going to the grocery store.
- She then decided it was a good idea to sneak a container of yogurt into her room and everyone proceeded to paint themselves, the carpet, the walls and all the toys with it.
- The twins unloaded all the clothes they could reach from their closet.
- Miss C scaled the twin's dresser and started applying the lotion she found all over herself.
- Miss C and Miss A unloaded a full box of baby wipes.
I've decided they coordinate their efforts to destroy our house and make me as frazzled as possible. Little Dude says to Miss C, "Okay, I'll distract her while you snatch the yogurt, and we'll all meet back in five minutes." Such is my life with three mini-destroyers.
Now onto sewing. I haven't played along with Lee's WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced for a while. I just haven't had many works in progress to show. After finishing my quilt for Lynne's quilt along, I didn't have any quilts in progress. I started sewing these HSTs months ago but shelved them to work on other projects. I decided to pull them out again this week, although I've realized I'm so sick of HSTs. I only had about 150 blocks pressed and trimmed. I've sewn and pressed about 250 since I pulled it out again, but still have lots of squaring up to do.
One of the reasons this project got shelved in the first place was my indecisiveness. I just couldn't decide how I wanted to arranged all these squares once I finished sewing them. Enter Lynne again. She showed a great HST design on her blog a while ago, and I thought it would be perfect for my HSTs. I plan to make my quilt 4x4 blocks. Each block is 18" finished.
I finished up my first block this afternoon, pressed it, took a picture and thought it looked great until I was cropping the picture to post. Notice anything wrong?
Luckily it was just the corner so it was easy to fix. I actually switched out the the whole square because I didn't want the corners to match which I also realized after it was sewn.
Only 15 blocks to go.
