Where has the time gone? I'll tell ya. Homeschooling, after school activities, and attempting to get my house in order. School is going pretty well, the house...well, not so great. But I have to let that go; children grow up at lightning speed. The housework can wait.
I do have a cheery quilt that is almost finished and on Little Sis's bed. She picked out the fabrics for her quilt and I love how it is coming along. The quilting is finished and now she gets to choose her binding. I do love a simple cozy quilt made up of squares.
I decided on simple straight line quilting. My walking foot and I spent lots of quality time together. Round and round we went in concentric squares until we ended up in the middle. This kind of quilting is simple, but seems to take f o r e v e r. I love the effect though!
I didn't have large enough squares of some fabrics. So there are some patchy guys thrown in. I think those ones are my favorites. Is it wrong to have favorite squares? I wouldn't want to hurt the other's feelings.
By the way, while we do school in the morning we have this little nut hopping around the kitchen.
Charlie is awesome. He loves to explore the kitchen, and lives for head rubs. Once you start to rub his little head he will not move an inch until you stop. He'll even lay down and fall asleep during a good head rub. Someone asked in a comment awhile back what kind of pet a rabbit was, because she heard they could be a nightmare, chewing on everything. He does like to chew on some things, mostly paper in his case. He has never been destructive to furniture or anything like that. You do have to give them things to chew on and appropriate toys or they will get bored. And we have to keep all cords out of his reach while he's out of his cage because he will bite them in half as fast as lightning! One of the best things about house rabbits, they can be potty trained! Charles uses a litter box both in his cage and out, and never has pee pee accidents. He does drop little poopies sometimes as he hops around, but they are little dry odorless pellets that are easily swept up. He is so worth having and we adore him and his silly personality. I mean come on, look at his little front legs. They kill me with their cuteness. If you're interested in having a pet rabbit, I suggest doing lots of research first. I really love The House Rabbit Society, lots of great info there.
Ok, back to finish our school day. Then it's time for mom's recess, the sewing kind. Woohoo!! xo
