It's Design Wall Monday. See more design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog.
I'm happily back to piecing work again. Our guild is making charity quilts and I got delivered a kit and instructions last month of some precut fabric and the pattern. Although not my favorite method, the "8 at a time" half-square triangles are very popular for precuts.
I may invest in one of the small round trimmers as this Olfa mat is getting pretty worn out--I've had it for many years. I did get the HSTs alllll done so I can start sewing them together. The pattern is very simple to assemble.
We did have some grandson time over the weekend too. Our older grandsons' shared birthday party was Friday night (they were born on the same day two years apart). They are 7 and 5, unbelievably!
I took a lot of videos as these two barely stopped moving enough to focus! Hunter is a bit blurry here too :) Cove is reading better and better; Elaine is very patient with helping him sound out the words.
On Saturday we happily accepted an invite from our son and daughter-in-law for a harbor cruise and more time with our newest grandson, Dane, 6 months. He was very fussy at the birthday party and really wanted only Mama. Cutting teeth is hard!
DIL Ashley's parents' cruiser boat is a lot of fun to tour around in. We stepped off to walk at the harbor and pick up some food. I saw a fellow guild member there too, small world!
Mama and baby posed as scuba divers for fun.
Co-captains for life :) Dane was pretty happy to be in a smaller crowd--as he was born during the pandemic, he hasn't been around tons of people very much!
