.: sewing with tiny animal forks :.

This has been the most beautiful weekend in Brisbane - gorgeous clear blue skies and not too hot.  Perfection.  

Just popping in to share the blocks I've sewn up over the weekend for the girls' long-overdue, long-neglected quilts.  I think I'm up to about 15 blocks each now, but it's been slow going.  I reeeeeeally want to finish them.  Really really really.  Need to put them at the top of the list.

You may have noticed the Bento Box fabric, in the middle of the stars and churn dashes.  It arrived during the week, from Hawthorne Threads.  The sole reason I couldn't go past a half yard was those forks.  The girls love sushi - and there's a LOT of sushi cuteness in the fabric - but I HAD to snap up those forks!!  The forks (well one each) go in the girls' lunchboxes every day so they can eat their fruit salad with them.  Even on days when 'fruit salad' means 'bunch of grapes'.  Things taste better when speared with a tiny animal fork.  

Hope your weekend has been very fun and sunny.  xoxo cat
