We have rented a boat to take out as a family today so that will involve a picnic lunch with lots of leftover turkey and ham sandwiches. I am still trying to convince Ryan to just stay here for the extra two weeks until winter vacation begins, but I haven't had much luck so far. They have already cancelled spring break and added an extra week to the semester break, so it will be a long stretch at home for him either way.

Here is the back, lots of 10.5 inch squares in a brick layout. I never seem to have lots of yardage for backing fabrics, but it is so much fun to puzzle together whatever is on hand to make something a bit more creative. I am especially fond of the day of the dead and fire hydrant fabrics. The zebra stripe are fun too, leftover from a valance and curtain that I made for Sydney's bedroom in our old house.
There should be some time for quality balcony sitting this afternoon to get the handwork done. Sewing is a bit awkward right now with all the "extra" bedrooms filled up.
Kurt and I are sharing one desk in the family room for my sewing machine and his home office. Yesterday I spread out on the kitchen table. I had just enough time to sew together the sprout blocks, which Lizzie is enjoying quite a bit. Framed nine patches are next on the list, but I'm not sure where all the parts and pieces ended up.
I also puzzled together a wooden organizer for the utensil drawer. It is made of craft wood from Joann's glued together and painted white. I think that I will go and check out Oh Scrap! and Kathy's Quilts this morning to see what handwork and scraps sewing other people have going on during this long holiday weekend.
