Magic House (St. Louis' Children's Museum) offered free admission to anyone wearing red to celebrate the Cardinals' World Series win. Can't pass up free! So, after a morning at preschool, DS and I made our way there.
After two hours and a full morning of preschool, DS was worn out and fell asleep on our 15 minute ride home!
However I did get the bindings on two quilts and will count them in the "out" column - they're just not on all the way! I will finish those today so that I can move on to other projects with a clear conscience.
Speaking of bindings, check out this tutorial at The BunkHouse for using a fleece binding.
Then, I got distracted a bit - had that kind of week - my mind was racing everywhere thinking about the in-laws coming for the holidays. And of all weeks, I missed my Wednesday yoga class so I made some time to hit the gym Thursday and yesterday. When I'm all over the place, I need to workout and find my balance again.
One of the things distracting me is the pile of boxes that I've saved for some mod podge projects. So, Wednesday evening, before the cold front moved in I did a bit of Christmas shopping and ran to Joann's to get black fabric for some more beer boxes. Fabric is so much easier to work with than paper.
One yard covered these 4 boxes with one strip left over which will cover another small box. It won't be long before DH brings home another 6 pack of Boulevard. The lids of the little boxes actually close together completely (can you see it on the 2nd box from the left?) - awesome!
To use these as quilting project boxes I will have to line them with some muslin.
Blushing Rose. Clare O'Donohue's books are fun, cozy mysteries set around a group of quilters in a small town. I don't buy many books to keep as DS and I make weekly trips to the library, but I do buy hers and this is her most recent.
Look at the pretty book mark and cute notecard. When I was younger I loved to receive pretty little notecards like these in the mail.
The YLI soft touch was 50% off - can't beat that. I love to use soft touch when I'm doing blocks with lots of seams like log cabins or pineapples or such.
