August Block- Vacation

Whew- this one is cutting it close.  I almost missed my own deadline!
 I used the quilt book again.  I have been just waiting for a reason to make this kind of block.  And then Senor said "vacation" was our word.  Score!

August block- Vacation

So here it is, waves of sun light and water which make for some of the best vacationing out there!

For the bum

You can see the yellow blouse I made in the video on the last post.  I really am trying to get good pictures of what I am making but have been failing miserably.

So here is an easy one.  When we were in Tulsa my Uncle Bill gave us a little rocking chair he made (!) for the Bug.  It is the perfect size and gets used everyday.  He can get in and out himself and he also likes pushing it around to different locations.  He has been watching some Sesame Street while sitting in it. (Although, he does prefer to stand up mostly so he can dance when they start singing.)
So, of course, I thought it needed a little chair pad.  Easy-peasey.

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

I just finished a blouse of the lightest yellow fabric.  Perfect for summer.  I will have to wait to get a picture of it on because the hanger picture is not doing it justice...

In other news I got a little job at a boutique.  It is either an amazingly perfect job or the downfall of my GSC.  All the pretty clothes!!  Luckily, all the money I will be making is already spoken for (probably a few times over honestly) and so I would have to content myself with just visiting the pretty dresses anyway.  I got to work Friday and it was so lovely.  Adult conversation, witty women, and did I mention the clothes??  Ah, aside from slightly tired feet it was like a break instead of a job.  Delightful.
Also of note- a certain someone is weaned.  As of a week or so ago.  I am not sure if there will be sadness over this in the future but right now I think we both feel great about it.  I know some women keep going longer but we were done.  I knew he was ready when he brought me a bottle first thing in the morning instead of crawling into bed and tugging at my shirt.  Also delightful.  The freedom this offers me is making me a little giddy.  It means I could go away for the night (or a weekend, or a month) by myself!  Funny enough, the times I think of running away I almost always want to take him with me.  Because I like him and stuff...  But he does eat everything in sight and run into streets and lay down on the ground and cry for a minute or two if you mess up his idea of fun.  So a night off, just because I can sometimes sounds so lovely. 

Marching to his own beat
