Today I will be working on some orange peel blocks for the border of my hugs and kisses quilt. I prepped a bunch of them on Friday and glued them down to the background squares on Saturday. I think I need 18 per side and maybe 4 for the corners. I have about 27 done so a bunch more to go before I can get this quilt top finished.
Today will be just me and the boy for a bit. Dad is headed into work for a short day today at the store and Emily had a sleepover with Grandma last night. She will be returned later this afternoon. I do believe we have a play date with his friend Katie this afternoon and then we'll attempt our second try at Yamato's - a Japanese steak house with the grills that the chef's cook at in front of you. Aidan went last summer with his PreK teacher but Emily has never gone. That will be his special birthday dinner out.... and then we are done with his birthday! For now, he is in his room playing with his Hot Wells race track. I got some batteries yesterday at Sam's club so he should be entertained for a while now.
I'm hooking up with Kathy's Quilts. Head on over and see what other slow stitching is being worked on today.
Edited to add my view from the couch. Sophie is the white one and Maxie is the black and white one - or as my parents call them - the white cat and the other cat!
