Thank you New Bees!

The Blocks have been pouring in, and I don't even know what to say, i'm so amazed with you all! They are so beautiful, and you are all so talented. Its great to see these blocks in person too, I'm picking up hints for my own made fabric. (I need to use a smaller stitch, etc)

This morning I showed the boys the blocks, I wish I had the video camera out from the start. Wesley was so formal with his praise, its like he's been taking hints from Ryan Gosling. http://handmaderyangosling.tumblr.com/ "This one is really nice" "this one is beautiful" "I really like this sparkly purple fabric." Then he and grant started laying out the blocks for me. Just like I do, moving htem this way and that, and switching, and switching back. Wesley sweetly allowed for Grant's suggestions, but wasn't happy about it. I DID make a quick video, zero editting, and certainly it won't be as cute to you as it is to me since it's my kids, but its here:



Grant wanted to wear the block with a ric rac saturn.

I made some big pieces of made fabric last night so I am ready to start the april block; hopefully my upcoming blocks will be much improved with my new modifications.

How cute! I definitely can't show my little dude the video, he is still a little mad about the alien leaving home lol. I hope the boys love the finished quilt.

Totally adorable!! Thanks for sharing this! Reminds me of my son when he was around those ages. He was kinda like that, where he would help with little things I was doing and make wise/adorable comments (he's now 25 and still adorable). so heart-warming to see this.
