It's quiet now, but after this evening, things will be different. The little kid is once again going to be home this weekend (which is a surprise) but it's because the big kid family is coming up to celebrate Tristan's first birthday.
With Andrew and Laura comes the rest of the family. Jim's mom will be here tomorrow afternoon, my dad will be here Saturday morning with his girlfriend. My mom will be here around noon (once dad and the girlfriend leave), and then Ben and Alisha may pop in later Saturday to round out the day with MSU vs Oregon on TV.
I don't think I'm going to get much (if anything) done in the studio.
Yesterday I did get the binding on the charity quilt. Here's the binding.

Once I milled around about this conundrum for an hour (or more), I found something else to do. Tristan needed a birthday gift and the last thing the child needs is clothes or toys. Grandma Darlene has that covered. Here's what he'll have at Gpa and Gma's house to play with.

I know where the fabric came from (it was some clearance crap from JoAnn's I got about two years ago). What are the chances of them having this around any more? I may have to find something close to it either back at JoAnn's or elsewhere.
The very frustrating thing is that I checked yardage requirements prior to committing to this fabric (because I didn't really like it) and I had more then enough when I started. Did somebody come in here and eat it all or something? WTH?
Since I couldn't complete my BOM, I started getting the Sugar Block blocks prepared for quilt-as-you-go. I have them all layered and will press them as they are getting spray basted prior to quilting on Mike.
I get to play in the studio this morning and early afternoon today. After that I have to run around and pick up food for this weekend, cakes, supplies for next week in the studio, and other varieties of things.
