Gymnastic T-Shirt Quilt

I finished this quilt today. I have been trying to make it over the past month. It is hard with all the kids home. Saturday my husband let me whole myself up in the sewing room and get the top finished. I started sandwiching it yesterday and finished it this morning. It is great to finally be done with it.

I went to register Josh for Kindergarten this morning. The school right down the road from our house would be the best to go to but it has a waiting list. The secretary told me that they would call me if a spot came open. So now I have to enroll him half way across town. My husband called and complained. They said that there are no districts here so anyone can register their kids there. Crazy.

Joshua, Andrew, and I went for a walk this morning. It was nice out. Not too hot yet. Our cat Dash decided to follow us. This is the second time he has done that. By the time we got home his tongue was hanging out of his mouth. Poor little guy.

Random Blabbering

We had a busy weekend. Saturday we went to a Geocaching event in Huntsville. Huntsville is an hour and 15 minutes from Florence. It was at a restaurant. There were a few people who were awarded golden amo boxes for having over 1000 finds. It was nice to get to meet other people who geocache. We then decided to geocache in Huntsville and then on the way home. We found 25 caches. Our previous record for the most finds as a family was 14. My husbands personal record was 22. So we were excited to beat both of those in one day. Yeah team Techblazer.

Sunday morning we went to church and then cam home and relaxed. We were tired from Saturday. So we watched a movie. We watched  NEXT with Nicholas Cage. It was a very good movie. It was action, drama, romance and Sci Fi all rolled into one.

Yesterday I worked on the T-Shirt quilt. I got the first row sewed together and almost all of the second. It has 5 or 6 rows. I can’t remember. Hopefully I will be able to work on it everyday this week. I need to get it done. I will post a picture when I finish. The two youngest boys and I went to Hancock yesterday. I needed more supplies for making fabric postcards. While we were there Joshua knocked a hummingbird figurine off the shelf and broke it. UGH. It is the first time that it has happened. Thankfully it was only $10 dollars and not $50.

Here is a picture of Andrew. He is getting so big. He is teething. We went from being colicy to teething. Yeah us. He is doing great. Sleeping between 5 to 6 hours at night. That is heavenly for me. Much nicer than waking every two to three hours. He will be 3 months old on the 25th.

T-Shirt Quilts

I got a call from a friend yesterday wanting me to make a couple t-shirt quilts. I made one for her daughter a couple years ago using her gymnastic shirts. I haven’t made anything for profit in a while. I need to go to the store for some stabilizer and other materials. Here is a picture of the one I made already.


Today is the last day to leave a comment for the butterfly fat quarter. I will draw a name tomorrow and announce the winner. Good luck and happy blogging.
