My little Helper



Well this last week has been really busy - and a little too much ~ so I decided I needed to get in my 15 minutes of sewing - just needed to feel like I got something accomplished. So I got up early, got my chores done, kids fed etc and decided I would get 15 minutes in before taking the kids to school. I had a little helper. My youngest decided he wanted to help - so he sewed on my lap while I ran the foot pedal.




Friday morning he woke up real early and came into wake me up. He said Mom - should we get up now? I need to get my 15 min. of sewing in before school....he is too cute. Anyways this is the block we have been working on - you can see more of them on the floor. It is the weedwhacker from Bonnie Hunter. We have renamed it the Scrap Whacker - cuz man is it whacking up the scraps!!! This is him being goofy ;-)




All these scraps are left overs from the backings of the 18 Quilts of Valor we have been working on for this years delivery.
