First Day of School – DONE!

My kids started to school yesterday. My husband and I took them into school and waited while the morning gathering meeting was held (it is a small charter public school), then kissed them as they went into their big girl and big boy classrooms.

And my nervous baby girl, going into 1st grade.  She had a great day though, she couldn’t stop talking about it last night 🙂

On to Quilting Updates!

I have gotten Block 11 done of the 2013 FQS DM BOM.  I really love working with the Avalon collection by Fig Tree Quilts.  I had made a really quick quilt earlier in the year with Avalon when it was just hitting the store shelves (or was that last year???).  I only recently got it off to the quilter and back, but I haven’t shared it yet.  I need to get the binding on it.

Here is my design wall from a couple of days ago – showing my Block 11 twins (on the right side):

Any one of these BOM blocks by themselves would make a beautiful quilt.  I often think about which one I would pick, but my wish list is already pretty full.

My cutting table had Block 12 all ready to start.  Since this picture was taken, I have pieced about half of these blocks and hope to finish it tonight or tomorrow.  Love those Alphabitties, but my letter “G” has gone missing somewhere … 😦

Olaf the kitten is still doing well.  Treating her eyes with some steroid drops several times a day.  She is so affectionate too.  She sticks really close to us when we are home.  I was lucky to catch this picture, she won’t sit still for long unless she’s laying right on top of you somehow:

I hope you are having a great week yourself.

Don’t stress out – it is just school time again!
