Very Productive Naptime :)

 I love naptime.  Especially when everyone actually sleeps :)  I can get a lot done.  Today I layed out my hexagon diamond units.  Last time I had these out, I thought I had made an error in sewing the red hexagons on one side.

Thankfully I was wrong about that, and they go together perfectly!  So now I'm going to go ahead and sew the red sides onto the blue diamonds (shown in a stack on the right) that I have finished.  I have 8 1/2 blue diamonds awaiting red borders.  Then I can get to work sewing these all together.

I also cut my dark brown dotted fabric to go with my brown charm squares.  I'm planning on half square triangles with these fabrics.  I can't wait to play with the layout.  Half square triangles offer so many possibilities.  I'm hoping to have some time this evening to use my sewing machine.  I want to put together those two tote bags, and maybe even start on these pieces.  That's a lofty goal though, given the distractions around here.

 Yesterday the one year old woke up at 5:30.  By 10, he had crashed on the floor in the midst of the daycare chaos.

See?  Yesterday was crazy too - they had every toy out and such a mess, and tons of noise.  Some days are like that.  Thankfully they're a little more subdued today.

 You've heard of a traffic stack-up, right?  We had our very own version yesterday.  I believe this was the doing of my eight year old, in his attempt to "clean up."

My husband has been working on scraping the laminate off of our folding table so we can paint it white and turn the eight year old loose with sharpies.  I can't wait to see how this turns out.  It's gonna be awesome :)

The baby was really into napping yesterday.  He was so sound asleep.  I needed him to get up so we could get to the clinic to get his stitches removed.  He was so sound asleep that I could lift his arm and let it drop and he didn't even respond.  I hate waking kids up when they're that into their sleep cycle.  They never wake up well from that.  But he recovered quickly, and the stitches came out easily enough.  And there was another popsicle in the end, so it's all good ;)
