With the "big kids" back in school this week, Kieran and I had some quality time together. I also planned to spend some quality time with my Singer 301 while Kieran napped. I was foiled yesterday, as Kieran decided to stick a pencil eraser in his right nostril. My husband and I tried to dislodge the thing, working under the assumption that it was a wadded up piece of paper. We finally took him to Urgent Care, where we were surprised to see said eraser.
I managed to piece this little stack of 2.5" hourglass blocks before the eraser-in-nostril incident. They're part of a secret swap project for the Love Circle at do. Good Stitches.
I also did a bit of stitching on the binding of a charity quilt, but stopped when I had trouble focusing my eyes on the needle tip. A trip to the optometrist confirmed my suspicions: my aging eyes are going to need bifocals soon. For now, I can get away with a pair of reading glasses while wearing my contact lenses.
Now that the almost-3-year-old knows not to stick foreign objects up his nose, I hope to cut into these lovelies today for the Vintage Holiday Quilt-Along hosted by Heidi at Fabric Mutt. I took my color scheme from Shiny Brites. I chose Dear Stella Linework in grey for the sashing- going for a silvery tinsel effect.
