Saturday - Someone has a Birthday and turns 8 today!

We have another busy day today at my house. Someone thinks they are turning 8 years old today (Aidan) and will have his grandparents over early afternoon for nibbles and cake. We invited our play date friends but one was sick yesterday with a stomach bug. His little sister and Mom might pop over though. First - Emily and I have a girl scouts Thinking Day event from 10-12 this morning. 

Aidan - 8 years old today.

Aidan - Look I can fit in the box Mom! Age 2 or 3?

This month I hope to add some brown and cream log cabin blocks to go around these little blocks. I have no clue where this little quilt will end up but after I have the middle together I hope to add a round of log cabins and will go from there. Not sure if the middle will be square or rectangle... I think I was leaning towards rectangle.



I'll also add some birds in the air blocks to this mix. Most of the blues were added last month.
6 inch birds in the air blocks.

The girls at the vet this week. Maxie and Sophie.


Head on over to the RSC link party and see what other browns will come out to play this month.

Starting my Avon business was very beneficial - I learned about Pizap.com which is a free photo editor. It allows for collages, Facebook covers and lots of other neat things.  That is the top photo that I created for a FB post today. Some day... I'll create a new header of some scrappy quilts.
