It's Friday morning. My kids are screaming at each other. Ginger wants to "snuggle" with Patch, and he is utterly repulsed by the idea. So what do I do? I hop on my computer to blog. Anything to keep my sanity. We have had lots of late nights and early mornings. I blame the sun. We've logged lots of hours at the pool. We've gone to movies. We've grilled and eaten outside. We've caught and released hundreds of lightning bugs.
School has only been out 3 weeks and I am exhausted.
I have managed a little sewing time. And by "little" I mean "hardly any." I was really hoping to have something completed for my Halloween in June celebration, but that's just not going to happen. June ends tomorrow. So far I have one block of nine finished.
Luckily it's a very pretty block. I'm doing Swoon in fun Halloween fabrics. The fabric is Costume Clubhouse by Sherri McCulley Siebold (who I met at Market and just love to pieces!). To switch things up a bit, I am taking the large scale fabrics and using them as the centers. I just love the characters. For those who are thinking of doing attempting a Swoon quilt, be advised -- the cutting took several evenings. This block then took over 2 hours to sew. It makes sense that I've only finished one so far!
Now that the kids have stopped screaming at each other, I think I can attempt a shower before the day gets too much away from me. Stop back on Sunday for day 1 of An Apple a Day blog tour!
