For a while now I've been wanting to build one of those wonky neighborhoods. Jacquie has done some very cute little mini's which I just L.O.V.E. This quilt is very much based on those minis. And in the center of all this, a very splashy sunshine (again, a Jacquie inspiration). I've just begun the quilting. . .The quilt itself is a 46" square. It's a blend of raw edge and pieced blocks. I just had to add a clothesline with some laundry courtesy of my Kaffe scraps.
We also have a bit of leftover Christmas spirit, in the form of cookie dough. It makes me smile when the Christmas spirit is so easily sparked by something so "everyday" as cookie dough. I brought the forgotten dough in from the outside fridge (yes, 5 kids require 2 fridges), and all of a sudden, here come the cookie cutters, the sprinkles, the Christmas music, and a Christmas episode of Scooby-doo. The kids had so much fun with this. . .even the older two thought it was fun. All 5 of my kids gathered 'round the kitchen table, laughing, humming Christmas carol's and chasing stray sugar crystals. Christmas without all the stress. Totally fun!
