Well, it has been a while since I posted. Aidan is much better now and is over his bronchitis. He did get his third tooth last week, so has been sleep crying once or twice a night since last Wednesday.... I can't wait until all the teeth are in and that will stop!
I did bring my machine in for service and there was thread clogged in the tension area, so it is all better now and sewing great. She also told me a trick.... use a very used dollar bill (so it is soft), fold it and run through the tension to clear it of threads. Anyone ever heard of that or is it just a Quilt Designer Viking thing?

I have made progress on my mystery quilt from my LQS. I did buy a new tool, the Tucker Trimmer and it works great! Part of the blocks are hourglass ones that are oversized to trim down.... I tried one without the new ruler and decided to invest in the trimmer. Used it once and am in love with it. This is a Deb Tucker ruler... she actually was talking at our guild meeting this spring and has some neat patterns and tools. I'll try to take some pictures of the 'quilt in progress' later today to post.

I also started machine quilting DH's quilt... I only got 3 blocks done but that is progress. I hope to get a couple more blocks quilted today while Aidan is napping if I can get some quick outside stuff done... fill the birdfeeders, toss the pumpkins and take down the halloween stuff.

Today we are off to Church Street for lunch with Greg and then since it is nice out, Aidan and I will stroll around and do some window shopping this afternoon. Tomorrow, we'll travel down to visit with my parents since they haven't seen him in about 3-4 weeks. Boy has he changed in that time! He is walking while holding onto things now.....I am so not ready for him to start walking yet! He's not even 9 months until tomorrow!
This is him in the swing after our walk yesterday.

Two days ago in big boy clothes...he pulls himself up onto everything right now.

The next big thing..... our Ultrasound is Monday when we hope to find out if the next baby is a boy or girl!
Ok, time to get moving so I can get quilting!
Have a great week eveyone.

You are so busy! And another little one coming soon! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I am reliving my "quilt making" history, as I get ready to start up again. My new room is painted and DH finishing the woodwork....I'll begin moving in very soon!
