I wish it were big enough for my bed but I don't want to have to buy fabric to make more blocks so it will look nice on one of the kids beds.
I like to work this way - assembly line style. I had to clear the area to baste the first quilt so I thought I might as well baste them both at the same time. I thought about tying this second one but I think I'll quilt it with a big stitch instead.
I Have to tell you about the woman at the pool. She came in with her three boys. The oldest looked like he was around 15 or 16 and well over 5 feet tall - close to 6. Anyway, the three boys were playing ball in the 3 foot section of the pool but at some point the oldest boy moved off to the 5 foot section to talk to some friends. The mother completely flipped out! She yelled to him (from her chair :O) clear across the pool. Then was using crazy hand signals to make him come to her. He walks over...what? and she says...YOU KNOW YOU AREN'T ALLOWED IN THAT DEEP WATER! (the oh so deep water that his head was a good 12 inches above)SO! BECAUSE YOU DISOBEYED ME AND WENT INTO THE DEEP END YOU WILL BE SITTING IN YOUR ROOM FOR 15 MINUTES WHEN WE GET HOME MISTER!
A time out for a 15 year old? Does he have to sit on a special chair for that 15 minutes in his room?! The poor guy. I'm not sure who I felt more sorry for...the boy who has to live with the woman, or the poor woman who is holding on so tight that she is going to drive her boys away. It was hilarious and sad all at the same time. But I must confess, I can't wait for Jason to do something to make me angry so I can tell him he is getting a time out! Can't you just see me sending my 18 year old to his room for 15 minutes! LOL A better punishment would be to make him sit in the kitchen for 15 minutes without having a snack! Now that would be a hardship for him.
