So! Summer is over! Will started school this week, which was a little sad and a little exciting.
We had a good water fight in the backyard the week before school started: I stood by the porch and sprayed the hose, and the kids ran through it. Great system.
Evy got hold of the camera, and took lots of picture of my fabric cupboard (good girl!) and....
Thankfully the camera is still alive.
I bought a huge bag of fridge letters from a thrift store for $4. There are at least 5 different fonts in there. The current goal is to keep them all high enough on the fridge that Max can't reach.
I finished up more blocks for my charity quilting bee, do. Good Stitches.
Also, I planned out what my design will be for my month (October) and I'm pretty excited. I've changed my mind a gazillion times already, but I actually drew it out on graph paper with the kids' colored pencils, and had Scott do the maths for me, so hopefully I still love it on October first when I need to give out the directions.
After designing the aforementioned quilt, I decided that graph paper was a way good way to keep track of all my awesome quilt ideas, so I needed a little graph paper book. Also, I decided it should be free. So I got out a pretty file folder I bought at Barnes & Noble like 5 years ago and a bunch of graph paper from a notepad and sewed it together! It looks pretty good! It's a bit crooked, and I forgot to backstitch the ends so it may all unravel, and my stitch length was really short so it might rip through the paper. But hey! I made me a quilt design journal!
