WiP/FMC - Lots of Little Things

So, where to start...?

How about...we accepted a referral for this little guy!

His name is William WooYeong, he's ten months old, and we have about a year to wait until we get to bring him home.

So that's my favorite little thing...but I did do a lot of other little things this week.

Nine-Patch Snowball {Well, the top, at least.}

Fifteen Minute Challenge
 I decided to do Big Blue's binding while supervising the Dude's daily homework. {Which is one worksheet page..but also torture. Apparently. And often takes longer than fifteen minutes.}

I've forgotten how nice a hand-stitched binding looks. Need to do it more often. Anyway, I stitched every day but Sunday, and I'm done with 2.5 sides.

Layer Cake Snowball Fight - all ready to be assembled!

Central Park Sudoku - really doesn't look like it's changing, but all the blocks are in rows, at least.

LQS Saturday Sampler 2012 (12/36 blocks) - despite screwing up my block last week, I could still make this set by switching the green and brown...and then I miscut the green. That's a six-piece 3" square to make into HST on the top of the green pile. Attractive.

Bad Romance - lines all the way in one direction, third of the way in the other. So I unpinned so that I could free up the basting pins for...

Fall-gyle! I'm probably going to need a new category - Quilted Enough So That I Could Baste Another Quilt. Because buying more basting pins would be silly!

Picture-Perfect Polaroid Block Swap - searching for a good charm pack, since I don't have access to my scraps!

Fat Quarter Stars (6/12 blocks)

LQS Saturday Sampler 2011 (12/12 & center) 
Chunky Log Cabin (13/20 blocks)
St. Paul's Cross (2/42? blocks)

    You've been really busy. Love the 9 patch snow ball flimsy. Congrats on the flimsy finish and all the other progress.

  3. I'm sorry, but I only have eyes for that baby boy! How exciting!! So happy for your family!!

  4. Lots of sewing done at your place. Getting my son to do homework is a nightmare he always leaves it to the last minute and while I listen to him whine about it he could have done it 10 times over. Lovely little boy
