WIP Wednesday!

We stayed up late watching Moneyball (very good), and then I was woken up several times by thunder/dog nervous about thunder. At about 4 a.m., the kid wet his bed, so there was cleanup and laundry to do. It's a rainy Wednesday, but unfortunately staying in bed is not an option, so we WIP! (Diet Coke, stat!)

Love your 4x5 blocks. the color choices are great. And I'm super impressed by your scrap attack!! 456!? That's amazing. My scrap attack has kind of been a side project.

Sorry about your rough night. Why is it that no matter what, the kiddos still wake up at the same time. Mine never let me sleep in even when we've been up 3 times in the night.
Love your swoon block. The fussy cut center is so fun.

My night was similar to yours. Alex had croup for the 5th time. The medicine we got to give him at home didn't work very well, so we had to take him to the ER. We got to bed at 1 a.m.

Yikes, that does sound like a dreadful night...but your blocks are awfully pretty!! I especially love the 4x5 block at the top left, the color scheme reminds me of Liz Scott's Domestic Bliss, which is at the top of my trying-hard-not-to-buy list at the moment :)

Marg said...

Love the bee blocks, especially the first one.
That;s a lot of tumblers, looking forward to seeing them all joined up.
Such a cute fussy cut centre on your swoon block, love it.

Toni said...

Ugh, those nights (and the following days) are no fun! And man, you work fast! Can't wait to see that tumbler quilt!

Marsha Cooper said...

It's been a cold and windy Wednesday here but I think I slept well enough last night...once I finally crawled in to bed.
Your blocks all look great!

Kirsten N said...
