How is it that I always feel like I never have enough time to sew all the things I want to and then, rather than finish the things I've started, I go ahead and start something new?! bonkers. Even more bonkers is that fact I'm sure I've said that before ;) The quilter's curse of beginning projects!

So here's what I'm up to...

I loved making the last rainbow log cabin quilt, so I'm at it again:

I finished embroidering the alphabet panel and got it all cut up and sewn into blocks - I think it's going to look so pretty! Just need to press and trim these:

 Was hard at work last night doing some hand quilting and have finished one row of feathers:

And I've nearly finished my latest rose star block:

I intended to do a full on WIP report this week but it's half term so I'm impressed with what sewing I've done and I want to get on with it not talk about it!  

Today we spent the day with friends carving our pumpkins. She wanted happy and he wanted scary:

We even all managed to have lunch and do the pumpkins while Lois napped. Baby and pumpkins might not have worked so well!

We moved Lois into her own room yesterday (I say we but actually my husband was the one building the cot bed, clearing, putting up a new curtain rail, etc.). And she slept right through from 8pm until 6am this morning! I couldn't believe it. I also cried last night knowing I wouldn't be sleeping next to her (as I have for the past 9 months) but that was probably the exhaustion taking over ;) It is a little sad but I will accept that phase is over if I get more sleep as a result... although as many of you mums may know, she slept through the night but I didn't. Getting back into a good sleep routine will take time for me.

Just in case you missed it...
