Bugs, Babies and Blocks, Oh My!
The first 2 blocks from the Fat Quarter Shops Designer Block of the Month program. Since they are 12" blocks they were very easy to do, can't wait for next months block.
I found the strange bug on my Bee Balm, so I had to take a picture. I showed it to my 17 year old daughter, she laughed and pointed out that it's not just "A" bug, but two bug having sex. SO I'm in the business of bug pornography AND I showed it to my child. Sheesh! I need better glasses.
It's been a long weekend, my wonderful hubby had a 4 day weekend and I couldn't wait for him to go back to work. It seems I get nothing done when he's home and we spend way too much money shopping when we go together. I had make a trip to the hospital yesterday to meet my new nephew, a whopping 9 pound 8 ounce baby boy, and soooo cute. My baby brother finally got his act together and started a family, I've already graduated to grandchildren and he's just getting started. Oh well, another baby to spoil. The hospital is a 40 minute drive and I met my son there and collected my 2 year old grandson. His daycare is closed for the week so I am keeping him for 3 days. He wasn't too happy with the long ride home and was a little crab last night. Today he's happy and dashing through the house terrorizing the cats. He, along with my 4 year old son will keep me busy over the next three days.
And my bonus for the busy week will be the Maine Quilt Show, YAY!! This weekend my hubby and I will spend the whole day Sunday checking out the show and having dinner out, childless. I can hardly wait! ............................intermission, had to dry some tears........................
Anyway I got some lovely cucumbers from the garden this morning, I think I'll go eat a couple. Yum!
