My garbage can is full of lovely bits from a night of sewing…
My work in progress quilts are hanging in the closet waiting for my next burst of energy…
and my husband and I are arguing over who’s turn it is to give this monkey a haircut:
It’s my turn…but don’t remind him.  Have a great weekend!

    I love the quilt your little monkey is laying on. I have to cut my little monkey's hair soon too. Any tips on how to keep a wiggly 2 year old still long enough to get an even cut? lol

    I think your little monkey looks cute with his hair the way it is. Love the quilt.

    LOVE the quilt. I bet it feels great to be able to find the perfect place for all those colorful scraps. Your monkey is pretty darn cute on that equally cute quilt. Hope he cooporated! Smiles~Beth

    For all the bits in the trash can, have you considered sewing them up in an old pillow-case and donating it to the dog pound or humane society near you? I've filled a small bag, and am almost ready to stitch up a whole pillow case. The doggies and kitties would love it!

    Melissa that is an awesome idea, would you like to Email me and I will send you my scraps? I usually give them to other crafters and I don't have time to make animal beds, but I love the idea!

    Those curls are adorable. My son had curly hair as a toddler and after we cut his hair for the first time, they were gone. Now that he is older, he let his hair grow back a little and the curls re-appeared. So funny.

    Oh he's adorable! Gorgeous quilt too! I love that you're so organised with your projects – I couldn't fit another thing in my wardrobe ;)

    I thought I was all alone in my strangeness, but I also enjoy the look of my garbage can after a session of block trimming!

    My son has curls like that and we usually bribe him with a promise of chocolate after his buzz… he like it, though, because it "tickles" but holding still is so hard at that age, thus the chocolate.

    Howdy! Love all the yummies! And what an adorable kid too!

    Along with Melissa's comment, if you don't want to make a bed yourself or if you don't have the time, my quilt shop in Colorado collects all the scrappies you cut off of fabric. This is even threads and batting. We have a group of gals that make doggie beds for humane societies in need! Let us know if you are ever interested in sending (or bringing) us your un-usable scrappies!

    Email me at if you are interested!

    Keep up the good work :)

    Awwww! Such a cutie! I love the WIPs on hangers. If my closet had any room in it, I'd borrow your idea!

  22. Teresa January 22, 2012 at 12:31 am #

    Your son is absolutely adorable. You can see his eyes mean monkey business! Your quilts are very sweet.

  23. Sarah January 22, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    I could not help but sniggle and grin when I saw your little one!

    Gorgeous quilts and gorgeous curls on such a cutie, I took my monkey for a haircut last week ready for his 3rd birthday, he is far too much of a monkey to let me cut it but is fine when someone else does. Good luck

    Your little guy is so sweet! Looks like you have really been busy sewing!

    OOh, i Love the idea of taking turns cutting the kids hair. I always do it, but my husband is quite capable. It's his turn next!!!
