|Minions on the left; Ninja Turtles on the right!|
btw that Ninja Turtle fabric glows in the dark!
So he modelled them earlier this summer when his grandpa was out west visiting him:
As I type this part now, he has lifted off out of Toronto a few minutes ago, headed back home with his mum. Sniff. Listening to his almost constant chatter gives me a glimpse into his amazing brain; the depth of thought this child has is nothing short of ahhh-mazing. Such a thoughtful, gentle, intelligent, sweet, compassionate child I have never before encountered.
Going to assuage my sadness by applying this 378" long roll of eggplant binding onto Dayna's quilt this afternoon:
Quick note that you might want to assuage your feelings of hmmm, sadness that summer is nearly over or boredom or freedom now that your kids are back in school, or no reason LOL, by picking up a class from Craftsy...I got a surprise email today that they're putting every one of their classes on sale for less than $20US ($26CA) starting tomorrow. Wow! That's an affiliate link, as you know ;-)
Click here for my reviews of some of Angela's classes. I should be back within a day or two with a review of the latest one of hers I snagged, which I started watching (which made my mind go about the same speed as Brady's plane, 500mph with ideas):
Machine Quilting Borders and Backgrounds
as well as Natalia Bonner's brand new class
Free-Motion Motifs for Classic Blocks
One of my good friends from my teaching days, and a faithful blog reader, Janis, sent me a couple of photos of what she has been busy sewing up for her twin granddaughters, just a month older than my Brady!
IT'S MY PYRAMID POUCH PATTERN! Yes I yelled that in excitement! It's my pattern that I designed for Moda Bakeshop (see sidebar link, no affiliation) When I saw this, I actually said, "Oh! Yay! Wow!" and immediately asked her if I could post it sometime... Isn't her owl fabric to DIE for?? And her accompanying colours? and LOOK at her points!! Okay, where else can you say that phrase without sounding rather rude? LOL
Little Penguin Quilts made one too; click here to see hers. This has lifted my spirits today. Thanks so much Janis for sharing this!
