I hope everyone had a great Valentine's day. I had an amazing dinner on the 15th since the 14th including taking girl 1 to gymnastics class. It was nice getting out of the house and J and I having a little time to relax.
I really had a plan last weekend to get some sewing done. It was a great plan but never happened. I started playing donkey kong country returns and wasted a very nice sewing day. Kids had a blast playing though, which was nice since they have all been sick. Fevers max out at about 103 with girl 1 getting it the worse, little man was second and girl 2 is just starting her turn. It's been a long week plus but I think (hope) we are getting over this round.
The weekend before I did get some nice work done on the girls quilts. Little man's should be quite quick so the girl's quilts needed a head start.

These four patch blocks have been fun to put together. It was my first time doing four patches and I must say they are quite easy and make a great beginners block. My sister even got in on this project and sewed the purple four patches! I'm not sure I'm a good teacher but I think a bit of the quilting bug has entered her.
Don't forget tomorrow is Friday Night Sew In. I plan to work more on these quilts, do my Feb. block of the month and I'm also hoping to make some more 1/2 square triangles for another exchange! We'll see how work goes and then how the kids and I feel. I know I'll at least get some of that done, not quite sure I'll be able to get it all done.
