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!
