Caleb likes quilting

Caleb is always helping and testing out my quilting supplies.
Hand dyes taste like fiber, you know. ;)

He's measuring pretty big these days.
It's not hard to see how the placenta cord was so wrapped around him when he was born.

It was wrapped around his neck 3 times, his torso 3 times and his foot 3 times.
I lost my foot pedal after letting him play with it several times. Finally I decided to get down to his eye level and found it pushed under the fabric shelves. Little stinker. :)

I try to make little as possible off limits, but if it presents a danger or he's abusing it, I'll take it away. Or take Caleb away from it. My ironing cord is permanently UP whenever I'm not using it.
He's been teething the last few weeks, so anything he gets his hands upon is as good as in his mouth too.

Maybe you can see a few teeth through the gum in this picture. I got tired of him taking chunks out of the batting, so that got stashed into the closet quickly. :P
The last two weeks have been a little rough with Caleb teething. He's cut two out so far (top left, bottom left) and I'm anticipating two more before we get a break. And more sleep!

Very little crafting going on, but my niece had a birthday 2 weeks ago and I put together a purse and apron for her.
I did kinda cheat, the purse and apron can be bought from Walmart, I just added my personal touch. No actual sewing done. :D

I so badly want to get back to quilting more, I just haven't figured how to balance it all.

Cute, cute, cute!

When my babies were little, sometimes I had to sneak upstairs for 15 minutes after my DH got home. Otherwise, there just was NO quilting possible. Now that my sewing room is in the hallway alcove, near all the action, I can sneak in for a minute or two while they're playing. You'll get there.

Hi, I found you while searching Google for a name for my blog. I was thinking of using Leah's Garden and when I searched it I found that someone already had it. I just wanted to say hi. I'm new to the blogging world and I'm hoping for some readers. Your little boy is very cute.

He is a little young yet for this tip but mine understood it by the time they were 2 1/2 tie a piece of fabric to the handle of fabric scissors - so he knows not to use them on anything else.....
