There is finally nice weather! It almost seems like we skipped spring altogether and went straight to summer. The temperatures are only in the 60's, but we're already mowing lawns and barbecuing, and my son has been dragging me on walks or bike (trike) rides nearly every day.
We started off going around the block, but then he noticed the bike path. Now he wants to go throw rocks in the creek and listen for wood peckers. What fun is just going around the block when you can walk somewhere and maybe see raccoon tracks? He doesn't even call it walking anymore. It's, "Mom, I want to go on a adventure!"

Well, it took more than three years, but my son has finally got into that mugging for the camera phase. If my niece is any indication to how this will pan out, I won't see a genuine smile in a picture for a good two years. This picture was the most hysterical of four that he asked me to take the other day. Four times he whipped his hair around, changed his facial expression and said, "Take my picture!" Then he asked to look at them all on the camera.
Maybe I need to stop telling him he's cute all the time...definitely need to get him a haircut.

I had two ideas on what to do with the scraps from my Amy Butler basket quilt. It's still a work in progress, but I have all of the fabric cut out for it, so I know what scraps I have left. Anyway, I thought I had enough scraps to make both of my ideas come to life. So I started sewing up hexagons yesterday.
Then I sat down and did the math. I made 13. I need 113. That's going to deplete my scraps a lot more than I thought it would. I still may end up with enough to pull the second idea together, but I'm already completely out of one print. I guess we'll see...
