We ran a sewing machine pretty hard this weekend.  Babywan after watching the big kids sewing had to get in on some of the action.  So I let her "sew" a little.

This is her "block"

She was pretty excited.

Mowg finished his block for Monkey. 
It along with Tiny's are on their way as of this morning.
I may edit this later and let Mowg put in his two cents.
After finishing their blocks I let the kids raid the scrap bin (I have tons of scraps).
Mowg said, "Mom, we're having a free sew.  Do you know what that means?  We can sew whatever we want."  That also meant no Mom standing over their shoulder and suggesting they pay attention.
I've got some pretty creative sewers!  They were at it again this morning.
Babywan on the other hand has become quite the reader. 
Here she is reading with/to Dad.

I got a few minutes on the sewing machine this weekend
and managed to finish a long overdue hat for "Army Base 16".

Graninonymous: These are for you
A little reading with a friend.
"I want to show her, her new dress."

Busy reading.

Have a Wonderful Day!

Tiny got to be home today so we caught up on January's block for Mowg
He think's it's awesome.

Here's Tiny:

Primary Bee Prince in January was Mowg!  We're almost done with our blocks, but not quite.  I haven't pushed as hard to get them done this month since it was his month.  My apologies to our two early birds, we've had these blocks since early January (maybe late December), but I just got pictures today.  They've been so much fun!  Everyone's done such a great job.  Mowg has loved each one.

First from Monkey at Monkey and I.  The first is always extra exciting and he loves the brown is in the middle.

She also sent a great card with a picture of where she lives.  I didn't get a picture, but trust me it's really great and we've loved having it up.
Second came from Sarah at A Reformed Heath'n.  It has great texture and he likes the green around the outside ("like a tree").
He was a little annoyed with me taking pictures, but really loves this block too.
Then today from Amelia at Pippa's Patch this fun Christmas fabric block.  He loved looking at all the Christmas fabric.
 And a fun signature block.
I'll post again when we've gotten more blocks.
Thanks so much for all your hard work you guys!  Your blocks are GREAT!
