|Little Man - He told me I couldn't see him. :)|
My Little Man is 3 years old. He is in a constant state of motion, except when he first wakes up. He is a sleepy boy when he first wakes up and he loves to sit by Mommy and hold my hand. When he was first born he spent over a month in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). I don't usually talk about those times; there was much stress and anxiety and just complete helplessness. It's just too much. Hopefully, I'll share a little here and there on occasion; I think it will be good for me. But for now, what I meant to talk about was how much I love my Little Man. He is quick to laugh even when he's mad, he's wild and he's gentle. He can be so rough but then turn right around and be so gentle and sweet. You know, he's ALL Boy! haha

|What's wrong with my uneven ends!!??|
My Mama brought me some beautiful fabric a while back and it was Perfect! I started piecing the top almost immediately. Little Man happened to wonder in and declared that this should be his quilt. His excitement sealed the deal.
It's a very simple patchwork pattern, but I'm having difficulty understanding why my ends don't meet up. I'm sewing long strips together and even though the strips are the same length, when I get to the end there is an inch or so discrepancy. ???? I don't use pins, so I'm thinking maybe I'm just hurrying too fast and letting the fabric slip. Do you ever have these issues?
Well, I'm off to have some summer fun with my sweet ones. Have a great Tuesday!
Go kiss someone like you mean it! They're sure to smile and it will fill your heart! - Little Mama Hen
