So, when I have time, I really do make these cute little things. I made Julia some turtle sandwiches (same idea, but I used ritz crackers and a little turtle shape). So, now she's been asking for them.
Mom - can you make me butterfly today? How can I say no?
Mel likes them, too. I think I used to do these for her. I think I made them with real sandwiches, with bigger shapes.
The only drawback is it is a bit of a food waster. But, they love it. And I love seeing the look on her face - she is so impressed - if she only knew how simple it is.
I can't keep up with the quilt along I'm supposed to be doing. It isn't a big deal - just one 9 patch every day. I'm so behind. I think by at least 3 weeks. It started April 21....ugh. I have 15 -9 patch squares done. I did order some fabric from Etsy, so I have pieces to work with, but I think they are 5 inch squares- that doesn't help me. They are supposed to be 2.5 in squares......I guess I'll have to order more!!!
I made a bib for Julia last night at class. She does not like to wear blue or green or red, only pink or purple so I whipped up a cute little bib and she was happy it was pink! She is (somewhat) easy to please. Very flimsy - just two pieces of fabric, no toweling, or fleece or vinyl - just cotton - you can practically see through it, but it works.
So, I promised my SIL a scrapbook of our trip to NYC. I am determined!!! I will do one. I'll make two - one for me, one for her (or, them - the three of them, I'm sure, would like it).
While Joey was sleeping, I thought I'd try this out. I had some scrap fabric I got from Joann's (from one of those bins). I didn't follow it exactly, and the edges could be a bit tidier, but it works (and it motivated the girls to clean up their mess of play dough).
I used some batting as the mattress filler, since the poly fill stuff made it a little bulky. I sewed the blanket all the way around, so now it is like a sleeping bag.
