5:30am Wake Up HURTS!

William decided to wake up at 5:30 this morning.... ughhhhhhhhh I'm a zombie right now. He woke up with a bit of gum pain. Poor little fella. I'm figuring the next two bottom teeth will be making their appearance within the month. I'm just counting down the minutes for when Trevor comes home from his work shift. Hoping I'll get to crawl back in bed for another couple hours. Normally William would stay asleep until 7ish... sigh... not today.

Now that he is happy and content again, he is out in the living room in his exersaucer watching his morning "stories" on the tele. I don't give him much tv time, but the shows are rather cute at this time of morning. I had planned to post to my blog last night, but I was feeling sooo tired after leaving my sewing room last night I decided to crash in bed for the night. Wishing I went to bed earlier had I known I would be up early this morning.. sigh... ahh the joys of motherhood LOL

Anyway, on to something sewing/quilting related. I finished doing all the cutting for the Green scrap quilt.



I also got a start on drawing the lines on all the light 3" x 4" rectangles.





Hopefully sometime tomorrow I'll get to do some piecing of these blocks during Scrap Saturday.

I also just recently (as in the last 24 hours) joined The Charming Girls Quilt Club!!



I've been reading about them for some time and they do quite a bit during the year. I can't wait to dive in and get involved!

Right now The Charming Girls are asking us to post some of our goals for March and April. Well here it goes

* Finish quilting and binding my Crumb Quilt
* Quilt and bind the red strippy quilt
* Make the green scrappy quilt
* Quilt and bind the 6 sets of Christmas placemats
* Start at least one Christmas gift
* Embroider at least a 6-8 sets of Christmas hand towel sets

hmmmm yeah, that should keep me busy and out of trouble for a bit!!! I'm sure in that time I'll be adding to that list! LOL that is list is never ending!

Well I best get the kettle on and make some coffee. Trevor will be home in the next 15 minutes. I need some more shut eye or I'm gonna be a zombie all day!!!

Quiltingly Yours

That's quite a list. I'm looking forward to the green project, though.

Teething is no fun at all. I often wonder who it is harder on, them or us. You look all set to go on the green scraps. Hope you feel like working some more after your nap. Sometimes a little rest is just the ticket.

I feel with you, because my two daughters were and are early birds. Sometimes I feel like I never slept, because the time between my leaving of sewing room and the awaking of the first kid is sometimes very very short. I hope for you, tomorrow will be better.
Your green scraps are very cute.

Hope your little one is feeling better! Good luck with your green challenge, looks like you are off to a great start.

I also like prepping and cutting everything before I actually start sewing. I like the pattern you have chosen for your green scrap project. You do have quite the list of projects to complete and I am quite sure there will be more added - we can't help ourselves.

What beautiful green scraps you have :-D
I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them. You have a great start on what looks to be a gorgeous quilt.

YAYAYAYAYAY! Welcome to the CG&GQC!!!! I'm so glad they let you in :) There wasn't any problems were there???

P.S. for teething, one thing that our niece really liked was chewing on a dummy that was kept in the fridge (any of them!). We also got some Nuby brand ones that have the teether ring around them... like these http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/nuby-gel-pacifier--stage-1--2pk--baby-wise.com-innovative-baby-products I found them at Shopper's on Topsail Rd. (I think!)

She did get a rash from the spittles around the dummy though so we had to make sure she only had them while she was awake or switch them out once she was asleep. We can't get them here either so I bought a dozen or so last summer and we just keep switching them out.

My mom never gave us dummy's at all so I guess that's a personal preference but if William uses them, it might be an option for you :)
