Block number/name: LS-13 “Watermelon”
Date completed: May 10, 2010
Number of pieces: 22
Notes on block: My first bit of sewing since Flynn was born two weeks ago! It felt nice to do some stitching again. Yesterday was Mother’s Day, and the boys gave me a gift certificate to Keepsake Cottage Fabrics. I think I may use it to invest in a new Clover mini-iron. Mine has bit the dust. I was lucky not to scorch my fingers when trying to prep these melons with the big iron!
My older son also made me a super Mother’s Day gift at preschool. The picture is from a field trip we took in January to the Redmond Fire Department. And he painted the little heart! (Since he rarely goes into the art room at preschool, this is quite a special thing!)
The little one continues to eat like a champ (and is even starting to do some sleeping at night now!). He’s a beautiful little boy, and I’m so grateful that he has become part of our family. We are so blessed to have two wonderful boys!
