And the kids are completely caught up on their quilt blocks.

I did it! I finished my queen sized quilt top. Must admit, I was inspired to finish due to Amy's challenge, and then wasn't linked up properly to receive feed from her new web page and couldn't enter the lovely giveaway - but I am still so happy to have been inspired to finally finish this top. My husband told me it looks pretty easy, but I have informed him that sometimes quilts that look simple are the hardest to make. Curved little scraps sewn together is not a simple quilt. He is duly impressed now. And then that wonderful husband and I went out this weekend and bought new bikes. I'm so excited to ride with the kids! So of course, I had to make new little bike buckets for them (which wouldn't have taken quite so long to make if I would have appliqued the first alligator to the front of the bucket instead of the back - then had to go and put another one on the front - a very decorated little thing and lots of applique practice for me). I'm thinking that maybe if they carry around snacks and a drink in a cute little fabric basket, they won't notice that I'm keeping them out riding so long.
