Brenda over at The Quilt Journey is hosting a post card swap. The two post cards on the left are from the swap from June. So far for July there is 4 of us swapping. If you would like to join us go over to Brenda’s blog and leave her a message. It is lovely to receive treats in the mail from sewing friends across the world. Why not join in on the fun. Happy Sewing.

It has been a day…

Man why are Mondays so unpleasant? Andrew didn’t fall asleep until 2am. We watched quite a bit of HGTV. This seems to be the norm. Atleast I got to watch Design Star at 12am. I usually miss it Sunday evening. He slept okay after that. Got up every 2 1/2 hours. Which is good for him. Saturday evening he was up every 1 to 1 1/2 hours. That extra hour makes the world of a difference.

Joshua is showing his butt today. He doesn’t want to listen. So he got sent to his room. Then he ended up getting grounded for throwing things and screaming at me. He came out to go to the bathroom. A few minutes later he comes out and tells me that the toilet is messed up. He unrolled the roll of toilet paper into the bowl and tried to flush it. Thanks Josh. Now I have an over flowing toilet. It took almost every towel in the house to dry up the floor. Thank God he didn’t go #2. Ugh.

So what else, may I ask is going to happen today?

Here are three blocks I have managed to make in the last two days. They are for swaps.

Nine Patch Quilt

Here is my latest finish. I received it in the mail today from my wonderful mother in-law. She long arm quilts.  They were her right after Andrew was born. I sent it home with her. This is the second quilt I have actually made for myself. It is just a little small for my queen size bed but it will be great to cuddle under. LOL. The nine patches are from swaps from 2 online quilting groups that I belong to.

Andrew is 2 months old today. He is getting so big. He loves to sit up and check life out around him. He is starting to droll and chew on his fist. He is a cutie.
