I was (and am) thrilled! But then I started thinking about a 15-month-old toddling around our home and all the interesting and potentially dangerous things he could find (uh-oh!) as well as the lack of clear work surfaces in the room where the sewing machine and computer are.
I have these partially finished blocks laying on the ironing board waiting for a decision about connecting strips and center blocks...
... piles like these sitting near my cutting mat, and ...
... this stack of fabrics sitting in a basket on the floor.
I don't even want to take photos of the rest of the room with all the folded fabric on tables and beside my sewing machine waiting to be cut and put away. All of this (above) doesn't even touch on the pins, pincushions, needles, and scissors I have in several rooms.
So today I've been trying to cut fabric for three (three!) quilts in progress so I can put the fabric away.

Ahh, but it will be such fun to have the little fellow and his mom here for a few days. He's easy-going, cuddly, kissable, and loads of fun.
I hope you're getting lots of sewing time in today.
