Whirlygiggles top

Scott is back from a week long business trip.  It is so nice to feel whole as a family again.  I resisted the urge to sew while he was gone, in order to focus on running the house and keeping the kids happy.  I have great kids.  They were very good to me and we  got along well.   

Whirlygiggles top is now complete.  I added several patterns from "Surf and Sand" (Marcus Brothers) and one from Amy Butler to the quilt top and that made all the difference.  Now I am ready to quilt it and put the binding on.   

 
















Here is the boy version lunch bag.  The wood grain pattern comes in dark, medium, or light, and the one shown is the medium shade.  The party is an all girl one, but I made some for Jerome and Asha.

Whirlygiggles really turned out neat. Glad Scott is back- I'm amazed how much harder everything is when Dan has to go out of town (which is not very often).

Oh, I so love it when Jeff returns from work trips. There really is something missing around the house when he is gone. Wonderful looking sewing projects as usual!

Meredith,
The part I hate the most is seeing how much the kids miss Scott. It makes me miss him even more.

Kim,
I can't wait to see it finished either.

Kimberly,
Thank you.
You are always so nice.

Melissa,
Do you have trouble sleeping when your hubby is gone? That is one of my problems when Scott is gone.

Jacquie,
Thank you. It is all thanks to your inspiring quilts.

Alison,
I made the blocks a lot bigger than the tutorial suggests, so it is pretty big. I would say as wide as a twin mattress.

Amanda and Janene,
Thank you for the quilt love!
