Playing with some scraps

First, I'd like to say a big thank you for all of your nice comments. I really appreciate the extra "cheering" section I've had lately. I'd also like to say that I've had a couple of new commenters leave me some really sweet thoughts. . .thanks again.

Have you ever had one of those days where you start a project, get about halfway through it and then switch what you are doing? Oh yeah, distracted by some pretty fabric that is just sitting around your sewing room.

Here is what I ended up finishing with some scraps of material. . .3 pretty kitchen towels. Aren't they bright?

Here is a project that I started first(the tutorial can be found on the Moda Bake Shop thanks to Rachel from P.S. I quilt- Rachel is also having a giveaway over at P.S. I quilt, so don't forget to head that way, too.)

I was originally going to do 3 of these blocks instead of 9 for a table runner as a gift. Then when I got the 3 blocks done (aren't they cute???) I decided it would be to big for said table. Hmm. I have another charm pack so I might just turn this into a baby quilt yet...just you wait and see. For now, I am thinking about it. But I do love the disappearing nine fun are they? Why did it take me so long to try that?

Onto more important events. . .this guy turned 5 this week.

Oh, I do love him so. Five years of kissing those sweet cheeks.

Great idea for the towels, very cute. Your little one is growing up, I guess he'll be going to Kindergarden this year.
