Annoying weather!

So, the shelves are still sitting there un-finished. It was so windy on Friday (and I didn't want to spray in the garage ... the fumes spread thru the whole drafty house then), and then it started snowing on Friday night (which was NOT on the forecast on Friday morning) ... sigh ... maybe this week?
So Saturday, I did crafty wood projects with the kids at Lowe's, played the piano at a Nativity/Christmas performance for our local church stake (sooooooo glad that's over!) and did a bit of sewing the past few days. Mainly these ...
my third child still doesn't have his nativity blanket. And he's noticed & mentioned it LOTS over the last few weeks ... so it was high time I get this in gear! Since the other two have such amazing quilting, I wanted his to still feel special too and so I did a scrappy set of squares. I'm not sure I love it yet, but maybe once it's all together it'll look better? Here's the tutorial on how to make the blocks ... today's goal is to finish another four blocks (I need a total of 16 ... and each one is taking me an hour) ... that with homeschooling the kids (and I guess feeding them occassionally) should pretty much fill up the entire day ... and probably most of tomorrow too.
