and many firsts this weekend. Like the first block being created for my first mystery quilt (see the wee linkie thing at the right hand side).
My first time using orange (ok not a big first, but a first nonetheless!). It actually goes surprisingly well with my couch and carpet in my livingroom which is a pleasant coincidence. My first block sewn with my new 1/4" foot - huge difference in my precision, admittedly the block could be better but that was because I was rushing to get finished so was getting sloppy. (I'm still contemplating unpicking one seam and redoing)
And lastly the first of many new words from this little person, I can't keep up with everything that he's coming away with these days! We've had everything from window, jam, milk to Judy and Darkest Peru tonight (we were reading Paddington). I can't believe it will be his 2nd birthday in 2 weeks, it's just flown past.
