My sewing machine and I became reaquainted over the weekend while I made my first attempt at string piecing. I love it since it uses all those little tiny scraps that I so dutifully save because I can't bear to throw them out. (I also tried my hand at free motion quilting, but you can't see it in the photograph.) And before you think I have officially lost my mind or have way too much time on my hands, these pieces of piecing are going to become something. Really. I just can't tell you about it until next week. I hope it all works out as nicely in real life as it looks in my head.
And here is L. (mainly because I found the picture on my camera as I was uploading the first one). She is nearly officially walking now. I forget how much more a baby can reach when they become bipedal. G. is still solely crawling. She will stand up and look as though she is going to take a step and then drops down on her knees again.
