QB 1 : Sand dollars

I actually embellished a quilt square today! I actually thought I might be making it all up, given my recent track record, this Island quilt idea destined to hit the top of a very deep pile of unfinished projects. But, aha!, here she be! I'm feeling like it's not terrifically pretty, but it's done, and in my world right now, that earns it a gold metal.

I can thank the stomach flu for helping me get started. Today, when Birdie went for a nap and Smootch did her thing, I was feeling waaay too ill to run around 'getting stuff done' (which always only gets half done or, worse, undone before supper). Instead, I sat my nauseous body down on a chair and piled out my thread.

It did not help when The Man walked in, looked at the quilt block, and said, 'Oh, look, kids! Mommy's sewing anuses again.' But, still, it works. Sandy butts really do remind me of this Island, given all the beach side diaper changes I've done :)

I'm going to go now and try to get better since we have a trip to Victoria scheduled, including an extended visit to the bug zoo. Victoria is a vegan paradise, so I must definitely be better by lunch tomorrow. Cheers, all!


  1. Oh, I hope you feel better. Sounds like a great day planned...bugs and food...what could be better.

    Maybe instead of moving we could just house swap for a few months twice a year. I would love sandy diaper changes and sand dollars for a while.

    The square looks beautiful! It wasn't until I started reading that I realized the one sand dollar wasn't real. (Haven't put my glasses on yet.)

    Get well soon and FYI its getting up to 6 today!

  2. Hey, I gave you a little shout out on my latest blog post. :)
