Today is D-Day. As in...Drop-him-off-at-preschool-for-the-first-time Day. I'm nervous and excited, just like he is. A part of me is so excited to have the house to myself to turn on the radio and sing along while sewing or cleaning or doing something that makes me feel like something other than a mother for a few hours. And another part of me is nervous, wondering how he'll do socially, how he'll cope with not being with me, for the first time in his three years. I really do think that he will do well in preschool, that it will be a good experience for him, and I feel confident that I've picked the right one, but only time will tell in a few hours when I drop him off. Wish me luck :)
Anyway...here's what's going on in my sewing room this week...
Sewing Summit humongous 12" pouch
String block for August String Me Along
For the Love of Solids swap package
Still in progress:
Farmer's Wife Quilt Along - I was so excited about finishing up my warm/cool quilt top late on Monday that I skipped my regular FW update. I finished up two blocks this week, Darting Birds and Duck & Ducklings, and they're in here somewhere...
Secret quilt - Quilt top is almost done, but I'm awaiting one last fabric to come in to finish up the top.
Ryan's guy quilt - Zilcho progress.
Quilt tops awaiting quilting:
Warm/cool quilt - Like I said yesterday, I have no idea how I'm going to quilt this just yet, but I do intend to baste it this weekend, hopefully, with another pair of hands around. And a new can of spray baste, need to pick that up, too...
Weekender Bag - Oh yes, I am going to finally tackle this bag. I've got the fabric, almost all of the notions (still hunting for a 30" zipper), and almost enough gumption to start cutting...
100 Quilts for Kids Quilt - I am going to get cracking on this one real soon, hopefully. If you haven't heard of the 100 Quilts for Kids program that Kate is hosting, you must check it out! I think I'm going to use a yummy stack of MoMo's Odyssea, which I've had for way too long in my stash, along with a few solids.
