Catching Up... Again

What I've been up to lately:

A wedding quilt in the style of Boston Commons:

A few blocks to contribute toward a quilt for next year's EOD Memorial Ball Auction:

(this is my first ever attempt at paper piecing!)

I found this awesome *free* pattern called Coffin Buzz... I only get to work on it once I've planted myself in bed for the night - but it's getting closer to finished.

Doogie's cousin had a daughter LAST MARCH (as in, over a year ago) and I've had fabric for the quilt... I just never did get to sewing it.  I finished piecing it yesterday.

441 5.5" squares later, I've gotten everything cut for a wedding quilt I'm calling "Disappearing Jermy" for an old, old friend.  It's a disappearing 9-patch with some specific color arrangements.

The Midget decided he wants to learn how to cross stitch... this has turned into a very time-intensive experience for me.  He's starting to understand how to translate the pattern on the paper to the fabric.  Hopefully once that clicks, it will not involve me sitting next to him directing his every move.

And Alice's bulldog teeth have come in.  She will look at us with her upper lip all caught up in her lower teeth and we just laugh so hard.  We've been calling her Cletus (cause were super awesome doggy parents like that - mock the weird).
