Busy, busy, busy

How did it get to Thursday night? Last thing I remember it was Monday morning. Monday was a bit of wash out :( We had some lovely visitors but the wee man decided that he would go into meltdown mode about 5 mins after they arrived. This then set off our visiting baby and anarchy ensued! So what should have been a lovely visit catching up with a friend was cut very short and wee man howled for 2 hours!! Ah the joys of having an unpredicable baby!!!!

Tuesday me and wee man went a visiting this time and he slept - for hours. And hours! His sleeping pattern hasn't been the same since he had the cold last week and we're kind of all over the place at the moment. Shame too, he was sleeping through :)

I have already had time to do much to the wee man's quilt either but the back is done

Just need to quilt each block and then do the binding. That'll be fun, never bound a quilt before.

When going through my fabric I did come across this

I completely forgot I had started this small quilt. Still to decide what to do with the back but it's not very big so once I've done the wee man's I'm going to finish this one. I love the big fabric, it's kind of like join the dots but has lovely little houses on it.

My learn something new every day has also taken a back seat over the last few days. But so far this week I have learned that no matter what age you are, you can still cause chaos. Take for example my granda, who will be 91 this coming Saturday. He decided to open the emergency door in his care home, all because the glass said 'Break here to open'. So he did! LOL Nearly 91 and rebelling, you've gotta love it.

I've also relearned how to thread the spool on my sewing machine, without consulting the instruction manual! (because I misplaced it).

Yesterday I learned/was reminded that the pain of losing someone doesn't ever really go away. After 14 years you just find different ways of dealing with it. My mum would have been 63 yesterday.

And today, well today I have learned that I definitely stress far too much about the littlest things. And it's never as bad as I think it will be.

Dude, my baby mantra was "don't sweat the little stuff"! Easier said than done, I know. {{{hugs}}} for you and the wee man - none for Pedro, he can get his own.

Quilt is looking grand and I love that wee one! You've got about 6 weeks to finish the Halloween wall hanging, too! No pressure. *g*
