As I have mentioned we have been sick the last couple weeks or so. Mostly I think its due to allergies on both our parts--Spring is not something I really forward to here because it starts mid-February and I seem to be allergic to everything here in Texas! But on a happier note I have been snapping some great pictures of Little Miss Z!
So here are "the Many feelings of Little Miss Z" collection!
|Contentment: I am sitting with my friends watching Elmo's World, "This is Better than a Nap!"|
|Happy: Mommy gave me a chocolate chip cookie, "I wonder how many more of these she has?"|
|Fear: First time on a baby slide, "Am I still alive?"|
|Contemplation: "Do I ever have to do that again Mommy?"|
|Sadness: Daddy has to work late "Where Daddy?"|
|Excitement: Mommy has Cheese for me! "Yes!! You heard my tummy speak!"|
|Curiosity: I don't like this spot after all. "Mommy HELP!"|
On that Last picture, she scared me to death! I sat her down in the chair to have some Cheerios and milk (in the bottle), which she does almost every morning and this day she got a little curious! The funny part is that I was a couple feet away folding laundry; I didn't even hear her move until she screamed! She gets buckled in to her baby chair from that moment onward. The other funny thing she likes to do is shut her bedroom door and scream from the other side because she can't get out! I have even pulled her toy box, which is heavier than she is, over in front of the door, but she just pushes it out of the way...
Meanwhile on the living room floor once she is asleep...
|Let there be batting!|
I told you that I found some batting, well it turned out that it was for a King-sized bed. I honestly cannot remember when I bought this little roll of batting, but I was happier than Miss Z with some cheese I will tell you, when I found it in my storage closet in a box I was sorting! I can pretty much only give 2 inches on each side of the tops to be able to use this batting for all four tops. I haven't really gone beyond matching the tops with some batting; I still need to press the tops and the backings that I have prepared. The Time Warp Quilt (Upper Right) doesn't yet have its backing assembled and ironically, its the only one of the four that I have the binding figured out! I just cannot make up my mind for the binding on the other three or what colored thread to use to FMQ Stitch these pieces.
So far my husband has suggested yellow for the Red Eye Quilt (lower right) and I am leaning towards White thread for Time Warp and Black thread for 4-patches & Squares (lower left) and I have no idea for Zig Zag (upper Left). What do you think? Opinions are welcomed! Well, I don't expect to have anything completed to share with you tomorrow, but my goal is to get these completed by the end of the month along with that Wonky Christmas Advent Calendar that has been on my list for 100 years (sure feels like it)!
