Once the pieces are all put together, I can tackle this mess of a sewing room! It always feels good to see the full space of my cutting table after the mess is cleaned up. A clean slate to make another mess and another creation....my sewing machine may start to like me yet!

Zach was a tad bummed out for a while. He quickly got over it when I reminded him of the fun week I had in store for him. He will be going to an indoor water park birthday party and spending a night with Grandma and one with TJ and Rachel. A happy meal lunch sealed the deal and he was chipper once again!
I cut them in half and trimmed them up, and finally pressed them open, which, by the way, is impossible to do without burning your fingers several times!
(I trimmed the triangles using my most favorite ruler in the whole wide world!! Quilt In A Day makes it)
See how it works....
Perfect 1/2 square triangles and no need to measure out that 7/8 inch and then try to be exactly perfect.
To give you a better idea of how tiny it is, here it is next to my basket blocks....
They are about the cutest things EVER! Are you asking "Where is all the blue? I thought DeNiece wanted blue!" Yes, there is mostly blue...I promise!Tomorrow I am going to be gone all morning. It is going to be hotter tomorrow and we may see triple digits! My mom is having a chemical stress test tomorrow, so please say a prayer for her! It will be a two day test. She is fine, I am confident, but just making sure. ;)
You learned to walk with help from your Daddy,and you helped your own son to take his first steps.You learned how to be a family,and you made your own.You are an incredible brother.
Always making certain any future wife would KNOW that your brother might someday be part of the package...You are a wonderful husband...I was never more proud as when I watched you stand by your wife as she made you a father.....both times.
You have always LOVED to sleep. I never understood that, but it is a part of you. You sit down and you fall asleep...we all know this about you! ;)Thankfully, you do not fall asleep when you drive.You are an awesome Daddy, in a long line of awesome Daddies!!We admire the man that you are. Happy Birthday Bud!! We Love You!
