A portrait of my boys once a week for a year.

BJ - hanging out with Dad a lot this weekend while comprehending accidents & doctor visits.  A bit out of sorts & needing reassurance.
DJ - impressive bandages to cover a bandage underneath that refuses to stick to the palm.  A very brave boy with a hole in his hand but requiring X-rays & medicine but no stitches.  

52 project is here...

To Do List

I haven't done well this year with my list of things that I wanted to see done on my craft list.  But finally there is another.  

I did these Happy Sun quilt blocks an age ago.  The quilt top was sewn.  It was basted.  All I needed to do was quilt & bind.  I did that the other day when I found the binding.  lol  It's done...  It is hanging in DJ's room.  I call him Sunshine & sing him the You are my Sunshine song.  So I kind of figured it would be perfect for him.

I've got to stop looking at Pinterest at Christmas time.  I get too many ideas.

This is like something I saw, but it was a lot bigger.  Also not a place mat thing like this is...  this is my experimental version though.  I can simplify it a whole lot next time I think.  I do quite like it though.  Will avoid trying to make a round wheel this way in future.  It's tricky to get them round!  lol    It was fun playing around with it.  I have some corners to cut when I try another.  This one still needs some jazzing up but will concentrate on a couple of others first.

Ticked Off

Some more done for Christmas.  Two more table runners.  Another couple of things ticked off the list.  Enjoying these.

Not sure how I have managed to get as much sewing done as I have lately.  Turns out I was a bit sicker than I thought.  Not just a cough & cold.  It's good that I haven't been stuck in bed though.  

I obviously do too much of this too...  

Picture drawn by DJ today of me playing Candy Crush.  Bwahahahaha...  I love it...  I like how he drew the lollies so well in rows.

So I had a couple of pieces of the green fabric left.  So I used them.  As you do.  I used up some more of the cute Store front labels that I had cut out.  I added the Christmas tree fabric to the top & bottom of these.  I love them.

A portrait of my boys once a week for a year.

BJ - building his new Lego.  Serious business.  Saved enough & had to spend the money!  
DJ - doing an awesome job of following the instruction book & building his new Lego himself.  Just a little help required.  Of course he had to spend his money too.  

Linking up with the project.
