I finally got another hexagon diamond finished, only 2 left and I can attach to the main piece. I really like the colors I picked for this one, but I can’t stand the maroon fabric. I don’t remember when I bought it or what I bought it for, but I really can’t wait until it’s gone. It is really stiff and hard to work with, especially when working by hand.
I decided to finish up the rows for Wiggly Whimsy. I still need to iron them and put all 7 rows together, but at least these have been finished. I really think I’m going to like this when it’s all put together. Still haven’t decided what I’m going to do with it, or how I’m going to quilt it. I might give it to Alex for his bed, he’s started wanting a blanket in bed lately. I think it might fit in his toddler bed without being too huge. We’ll have to see once it’s all put together though!
While I worked on finishing up Wiggly Whimsy I pulled 2.5″ squares so I could start working on the scrappy 9 patch quilt. I needed to cut more black squares with my Go, but that’s so easy and fast it really wasn’t a big deal. I now have 120 twosies that need ironed so I can make the 4 patch blocks that make up the border. I’ll need to cut more black squares for the 9 patches, but that can wait since I have the 4 patches to put together. I’m thinking that I’ll work on this a little in the afternoons while Alex naps, along with putting Wiggly Whimsy together. I can listen to the tv or a podcast while I work and time just flies.
Alex has finally hit the terrible twos and has little tantrums at stores, usually when I tell him no I’m not buying him something. I’m at the point of ignoring him even though people are always looking at me because he’s screaming and crying. All of a sudden he doesn’t want to nap, he plays in his room for hours until I finally let him out. He’s locked his door twice in the last week, the first time I FREAKED out and had to call hubby to find out how to get the doggone door open. I just could not think clearly or rationally. There is now a wire hanger outside his door for easy access :).
I guess I better go start gathering things for the trip to the in-laws for our Easter celebration, tomorrow we’ll be at my parents all day. Hope everyone has a Happy Easter!
