With all that practice, I went back to Tyler's quilt to try and tackle it. I felt so uncordinated when I first started quilting his - I had that quilt everywhere. But I feel a little more cordinated and feel like it is going much smoother. It didn't help the first time around that he was hanging over my shoulder asking is it done yet? I want it on my bed tonight. Little monster. I finally told him if he didn't keep asking me I was going to pitch it (at the worst moment when things weren't going well) then felt so bad for telling him that - I promised to make him sheets and pillowcases to go with it (do I have SUCKER on my head for my kids and their wishes?). But this time around is going so much better - I'm enjoying it.
And tonight he tells me just which fabric out of his quilt that he wants his sheet set made out of (one of the fabrics with the fire helmet will work just fine for my sheets mommy - I'm not going to be picky). This kid has an amazing memory - he can remember things from years ago that we have long forgotten.
We had our teaser spring day today - 63 and sunny (which I thoroughly enjoyed by cleaning out my truck over my lunch break at work). Of course, tomorrow there will be freezing rain and ice - Yippee skippy.
A few more cows are looking closer to calving - and knowing them, they will wait until tomorrow night when we are in the midst of this ice storm.
I think I have all of my seeds to start either this weekend or next - and I got my peat pellets and my trays. I have to go this week and find some sort of light to use on them - last year they got very tall and leggy, but we didn't put them under a light.
