I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. The snow has finally stopped falling and now is turning to heavy wet snow. I'm sure the native peoples of Alaska must have one word for that kind of snow. Slop comes to mind.
I've been working on a baby quilt. I haven't done a traditional quilt design for ages. Let me tell you that a 6 1/2" block made up of four 3 1/2" pieced blocks and those 3 1/2" block have two or four pieces is a ROYAL PAIN IN THE YOU KNOW WHERE. I have spent all day, it seems, on this quilt and I have ONE ROW done. ONE ROW!!!!!!!!
It's done in 1930s style fabric, soft pastels with lots of white on white as the background fabric.
I actually enjoy working with these colors, right now. 12 inch blocks are a whiz compared to these. But, I know it's what the couple will like so I'm "pulling up my big girl panties" and getting on with it.
Murphy is bored. We've taken a number of breaks, for me to throw snowballs, for him to snuffle out, in the snow. I think he misses Zeus.
I've been playing with Riley when I come back in the house, from the studio. She's standing and walking around the coffee table now. Every once in a while she will put a toy to her mouth, with both hands, while standing. I don't think she realizes that she is standing unsupported. I swear she will be walking by a year old if not sooner.
I heard her say HI when she was being brought upstairs for lunch. I thought it might be a fluke but Mary says that she has been saying it off and on. She also says MumMum. I'm trying to pretend that three Mumms in a row is for grandmum.
