I know it's been awhile. I made myself promise not to post until I made some serious progress on my quilt. I thought I could get it assembled faster than I did. I always seem to underestimate the length of time. I thought I could get the pinwheels done in a day... more like a couple months. I thought sewing the rows together would take two hours... more like five. The quilt's one row short (I need to make one more pinwheel block). I'm thinking a thin border in one of the pindots (red, orange, yellow, green, blue) and then a bigger piano key border. I was leaning towards a thin red border. Opinions?
Ian went back to his daycare provider for the first time today, but I don't think he was keen on that idea in the beginning. He was so used to getting spoiled by his grandparents and staying at home. He wasn't the only one getting spoiled. It was so nice having my mom here last week, and then spending a long weekend with Darrin's parents. They cooked meals, cleaned the house, got up early with Ian. It was like one long mother's day for me! Speaking of mother's day, Ian got me the Tenderness figurine from Willow Tree and Darrin promised me a date night. I think we've had maybe two of those in the 15 months Ian's been alive. Date night for us is dinner and a movie, and with movies as expensive as they are here, we don't go very often. Here are some favorite pictures from this past week.
