This week has been a bit crazy. Ian and I have had Vacation Bible School every morning, and I've been busy in the afternoons preparing for vacation. Darrin and I leave Saturday to travel to Montana with our best friends for a week, and we're leaving Ian with his grandparents. We'll be staying in a cabin near Glacier National Park and are driving up there. To make the trip as cheap as possible, we've been busy making and freezing food to just prepare up there. I have had a bit of time to get a few things sewn before we head up there, though.
The item on the left is a changing pad for Ian that folds up and goes in his diaper bag. The white material is soft for him to lay on but is fairly waterproof, and I backed it with the Dick and Jane fabric. The bag on the right holds diapers and wipes and should be a lot easier to grab when we're headed places that don't require the whole diaper bag to go along. Both patterns came from Art to Heart Windsome Baby.
I finished a block for my Shadow Play quilt. It will probably be the last square I complete for awhile. They take a long time to assemble. I'm going to have to work on getting all the small triangles sewn together so that they make a straight diagonal line without having to be ripped out 10 times before I get them straight. I also have a bit of a problem sewing the big triangles on so that when I iron them back, they line up with the other blocks to make a square and not a skewed square. I think with a bit of practice I'll get it (or at least that's my hope).
I hope everyone has a great few weeks. If we find a place with internet connection, I'll try to get some pictures of Montana posted, but for sure when we get back. I should hopefully have some quilt things to show as well, as Marlena and I have big plans to work on our Rachel's Reel hand appliqué blocks in the car on the way and sitting on the big porch at night.
