New Quilts

It seems our favorite thing to do is produce multiple quilts at once.

Okay, so not really. Actually, it's quite stressful. But it seems to always happen that way.

Life. Serious.

We've decided to get 3 patterns out, in the span of a week.
So, it's 10 pm.  I've been sitting here for the past 12 hours with a humongous diet coke, a small diet coke, and an entire box of hostess cookies all totally consumed by me.  My dear husband took on babysitting for the day, and I love that he's so incredibly supportive. 
We've got a beautiful quilt coming out.  And there is a good 20 different floss colors we used.  I've got the list here, and the colors my mother used to describe them.  Things like "light green.  green.  dark green.  forest green.  brownish dark greenish.  medium khaki green" Actually, the medium khaki green is how DMC themselves describe the color.  Still.  I'm not sure if I should be laughing or crying. 
I could be really obnoxiously specific and say things like "left bottom leaf stem medium khaki green"
*Sigh*  But I won't.  Here's hoping the stitching guide turns out coherent.

Little Bo Peep, um, again.

Apparently having two kids is horrible for my brain.

And unfortunately, I think it only gets worse from here.

We've taken this picture 3 times now, but really, the 3rd time was totally unnecessary. I'm just that awesome, and wasting time is my specialty. (Like making dinner should be more of a priority than, say, blogging, but whatever.)

But I'm posting this now, which is better than never. The first time was really blurry. This is a beautiful quilt and it needed justice.

Thanks TJ for putting up with my insanity, and thank you "me" for also putting up with my insanity. And I'm sorry all of you fall victim so often.
