Little Boys

Ben got his first haircut this week.

I miss the curls.

I don't miss brushing it out of his eyes and washing food out of those long strands after every meal.

He also got his top two teeth this week!

I haven't seen much of Timothy lately...the weather has been not so arctic, so he has been spending lots of time outside.  Between school and early bedtimes to make school work, I miss my big boy!

Be My Neighbor, Block 1 and 2

I came across the Be My Neighbor quilt along (it is put out by Moda) this past fall and just thought it was cute.  I had scored a half yard bundle of fabric (Farmhouse) from my local quilt shop's clearance room at 50% off and I was itching to cut into it.  It seems to be a good match so far, after I threw in a few more coordinating greens that were absent in my bundle.  I haven't followed a pattern like this in a long time, so it is a refreshing exercise of accurate piecing, aka my seam ripper has been used.  :)

Block 1
(18"x 18")

Block 2
(15" x 18")

I picked up my patterns here, if you are interested or want to peek at the finished quilt!
Here is a link to a wrap up they did just a few days ago featuring so many that were completed during the given time frame.
