I forgot to upload the photos of my gorgeous little artists from yesterday. It was a great day for them, and it was amazing to see some of the costumes others had come up with. I saw a preppie dressed up as a paintbrush and another as Mr Squiggle! Very clever. Of course there were quite a few kids with injured ears doing their best Van Gogh impression.

Nate's bff was asked his favourite artist and he said it was "vicks and mango" but he also liked "Pavlova Picasso"!! ROFL how cute is that!!
Now for my Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt Along. It is Week 13 and I have been trying to make up for the 6 or so weeks I didn't do any blocks at all. The only block I have missed so far is block 57 Morning. I haven't been happy with the paper piecing templates that I have seen so far, I think I may have to redraft it myself to make it a bit easier. I only have about 6 blocks to go now and I am up to date with my BOM. I will get some more soon so will have another 5 to do then. To make the 145 I need for a king size quilt I have to make an extra 34 blocks. I have about 5 or so of those finished so when I get caught up with the BOM it will be a great chance to get some of those blocks ticked off the list.
