Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Dont make like a tree and leaf so soon! :)

Lets rake up some fun!

Lovey mid leap into a leaf pile!

My 3 munchkins :)

Hubby pushed me in too but sorry no one thought to snap a pic LOL


In other news...Guess what I did??! Well I decided to go the cutting the squares out individual route. And for some stupid reason I cut 600! instead of 300! What WAS I thinking?! Took me FOREVER too and I went to Hancock's today and got more variety to go in because I ONLY had 400+ and thought I needed 200 more! LOL dur melzie so now I have more 2" squares! Maybe I'll make 2 gratitudes quilts hehe.

Thats all to report here :) Hope youre weekend is going well!

Gratitudes:
Warm house (cold outside!)
Excess of 2" squares! (you know, incase there's like a shortage or something ;)
Church tomorrow! I missed last week from being sick. We go Sun. a.m. and p.m. but not Wed. night as we live almost 30 miles from our church and there is just not time to do it all :)

HiMelzie. Good luck with all those little squares, I tend to go the strip route but did have to individually cut and sew a good few to get the right balance. I'm making the quilt bigger by making more of the scrappy squares, you could now just do that too. Cheers

Twice as much Gratitude never hurt anyone. :-)

And the pictures of the kids playing in the leaves brings back many fond childhoon memories. Thanks for sharing.

the leaves look like lots of fun. we don't have that many leaves here - they blow away from the house to other parts of the neighborhood.

how about a scrappy square outer border? That would surely use up thse blocks.

OH! These leaf pictures are great! I SO miss raking leaves and other fall things. Looks like a great day of fun.

Do you like Irish Chain quilts? With all of those extra squares you are well on your way to making one. (I can send you directions...)

Oh my - that is a lot of 2" squares ...... I like ComputerPeach's comment about perhaps using them in the border.

What cute kids! No kid can resist a huge pile of leaves.

In the picture of your son mid jump, it looks like he is holding your younger guy and I was so worried that he would get hurt when they landed. Glad my eyes are playing tricks!!

Extra 2" squares sound like another quilt must be needed somewhere. I have yet to take the quilting plunge. One day. Maybe after the move. Then again, maybe not! ;)
