My Best Enemy

Jaxon gave me a big hug today and said in the sweetest voice, "AWWW, you're my best enemy." I have no idea...

We've spent the week at the pool. Jaxon had his first swim lessons, and although he started the week full of fear, by the end he was willing to go down that giant water slide (the one there in the background)...


...about ten times (with mommy of course). Just in time, as we leave for the beach tomorrow. Which means I had a big to do list for the week.

I got all my work stuff done, plus:

• Made two more blocks for Around the World. The one on the left was an experiment in free piecing (I'm not sure how successful) and the one on the right, friendship stars and snowballs.


• Completed my hexagon top.


• Began ideation for the next Hoop Up. Here's what I've come up with so far. None of them are singing to me. Ideas?

Things still to do:

• Finish packing.

• Return phone calls (really, really bad at this).

*sigh*

Enjoy your beach trip. Can you believe I live 15 minutes from the beach and we never go?!

The hexagon quilt looks wonderful!

Gooooo Jaxon!

I love the portholes but I'm a water sign so my suggestion is a little bias.

Enjoy your trip!

I hope you're having a great vacation! I love the hexagon quilt. And Jaxon is sooo cute -- I'll bet he keeps you hopping! (I wonder what he thinks an enemy is???)

Thank you for my block! It is so cute! Just what I asked for, something fun!
I love the vintage/retro kids. The little blonde girl reminds me of my daughter.
I am having trouble with Flickr so I thought here would be as good a place as any to thank you for your work.

Hi! I saw your quilt blocks on flickr and I was wondering, what is the white background fabric on the free form piecing block? I just love it. Thanks.
