There has been a lot going on but at the same time there hasn't - if that makes sense. Busy doing family and household things. 2 trips to the orthodontist for kids 2 + 3, one new set of x-rays and a 'keep going, you're doing really well' - that was for #2, she was hoping that the archaic and barbaric structure she has in place would come out early (due out in October) and there is a chance it may, but not as early as she would like...then the braces go on. Yikes! All because she sucked her thumb...
Baby bear #3 has discovered a new talent...I'm so very proud ;)
he had us all giggling the other night while he was waiting for his dessert.
This old Buzz Lightyear long stitch has made a resurgence. I bought it ages ago in an attempt to get baby bear #3 working his hands and fingers and also because he is a HUGE Buzz fan. It has been very hit and miss - his frustration levels are not the best. #2 has been working on it for him a little. Don't expect a finish on it any time soon.
This is what remains of my Marcelle Medallion. Yes, I pulled it apart. I had always thought it needed one extra border and then I was having trouble getting the borders to fit and blah de blah blah. So I did what any self respecting crazy person does...I unpicked it.
And started again. I have kept the original centre piece and think I will turn it into a pillow. I redid the centre making sure that it was spot on and much to my dismay, surprise, pleasure - it was exactly the same size as the first (so I didn't make a boo-boo after all). I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon sewing the borders on - I made a few minor adjustments and now have 2 borders to go and the top will be finished.
Think I may need to go to Spotlight this afternoon to get the necessary batting and backing fabrics. Any suggestions on how to quilt it?
