boys {and other things i made}

Just some boy things going on around here lately...Moses *needed* a new backpack for his two day a week preschool.  Somehow preschool does not play into the "to homeschool or not" debate.  He is going to one of the best in town and Uncle B wanted to pay to send him.  And Moses is thrilled.  And this is a great way to "test the waters" so to speak...
...oh, and of course hoho needed his own monogrammed back pack to match. :) 
I love these wonderful boys.  Moses and his "I hate loud noises but I am the loudest noise ever".  And Aaron and his insistence on feeding himself...and doing a better job most times than his older brother.
We learned this summer that the boys love frozen things.  In this case I just froze some water in plastic cups.  Free entertainment for an hour.  Mommy loves.
We also did this again this this summer...several times.  Tiny toys, frozen in a bowl.  Hours of entertainment as they use water squirters, a small screwdriver and toy hammer to pry the toys out of the ice.  More free fun.
Hoho loves to help with the hoho making process.  He's in charge of cuddle quality control. You can tell he takes his job seriously by all the squeals and giggles that he exudes. 
I walked out one morning to see that Moses had lined all these little guys up on the fence...I'd love to know what scenario sparked this formation. :)
And in other things I have made...I have a new favorite quilt pattern...the wonky star.  This one is for a group project I am working on...
And this one is on a pillow going in the shop. :) I LOVE it.  The center was begging for a little doodle embroidery. 
And this is another set of squares for the same project...another I am sure to use again. 
CJC-What do you think of this pattern for your table runners?
And if you are not a Facebook fan you may not have seen these...these are a pair of "keepsake hoho's" I made for my last batch of hoho's.  These are made from baby clothes given to me to use by the customer...wouldn't you love a hoho made from your sweet bundles baby clothes? 

:)

Well...that's life in a nutshell lately...bits of this and that all over the place. :)
