Monday Monday

I just put a coffee in the freezer so I can chug it down and see if I can salvage any of this day! I have a long list, of things I'm actually looking forward to doing, but I can't seem to get out putter-around-craft-room with breaks of looking-stuff-up-on-the internet mode.

The Book Club is complete! These last two are snuggled close together enjoying a book in their favorite chair. These little readers have been so much fun to stitch up. I almost feel like I want to do another nine. And I'm excited to get started on their quilt. I'm thinking it'd be a cute birthday present for Junebaby. I've got it all sketched out. Now I just need to figure out how to make it work.

So set no. More
