T#1 and T#2 are swimming this weekend, but Nana and Papa had to stay behind to watch the two little ones. This is a large meet, with no crash room, so expecting the little ones to sit through a long afternoon on the pool deck (especially a little one who would be skipping her nap) is asking for trouble. Daddy had to work today, so Nana and Papa got drafted to watch the littles. While we love the time with the two littles, we miss being able to cheer on the swimmers … so we’re following along at home, thanks to our Meet Mobile App.
I’m taking advantage of the down time (T#4 is napping and T#3 is having some quiet time) to get back to work on trimming my triangle blocks (for DD’s quilt).
The stack on the right are the trimmed blocks as of this morning. The trimmed stack is now about twice as high as the untrimmed stack … so I’m making progress. The job was made MUCH easier thanks to my Bloc Loc ruler! I cannot imagine how tedious (and inaccurate) the job would have been with a standard square ruler. I wonder … will trimming these blocks count as Slow Sunday Stitching? I’ll take some hexies with me to work on during the swim meet tomorrow.
I realize I forgot to show you what I got for Mother’s Day … from DD and her family.
I have to admit I got a little teary-eyed. (The Willow Tree figurines were gifts from them on other occasions.)
We’ve got rain in the area … wonder if we’ll get any today. We’ve had rain in the forecast every day, but I’m not sure we actually got any here … although we did drive through rain on our way to St. Louis yesterday afternoon as well as on our way home.
Have a spectacular Saturday!
