I took some fabric, turned it into hsts

and started making blocks

I usually don't get much sewing in during the day and surprised I could today... all the kids were home and have had the dreaded stomach bug again. They didn't have the energy for trouble making though and mostly sat watching TV, so I took advantage when I could ;)

There was some random hugging 

and reading, writing and drawing too. Here's what Joan gave me:

A lovely note and a story - which is about a silly pufferfish that hit herself in the face because she lost her book but she was sitting on it!! She is currently obsessed with pufferfish and really wants to go to Japan to see some :) She thinks they are beautiful and is constantly drawing pictures of them. I got her a book from the library with different sea life in it, surprisingly our local library didn't have a book dedicated to pufferfish?!?


  1. those wonderful days when the best thing known to a child is an empty cardboard box and a felt pen!

  2. I really like that block. The way you put it together was brilliant! I love the look of those kinds of blocks, but working with all of the loose/stretchy triangles scares me. I am going to have to try know, in all of my spare time.

    Love your pillow in the post below. Quilting before doing the applique looks great.

    We have been having some sick days over here too. But the 2 year old is clingy enough that we have watched cartoons together. I think I am getting what she has....

  3. The block is looking good :-) The note is so sweet. I remember those days.

  4. Hope everyone is well soon! Poor Mommy! XX, love those fabrics! Try to stay well!

  5. I hope everyone is better now!!

    P.S. Joan has lovely handwriting!

  6. Those little quirky obsessions they get are so fun!
