What I accomplished last night...

the kids went out early, I didn't...

I was so excited to get the fabric for the 1st Wednesday Block Swap, I got right to work...

I made a pinwheel star for Flic (she asked for stars, 12" square, in black and red)

I used the Made Tutorial as inspiration for a shirt for D... His head is really big, and he hates the pulling-over-the-face part of getting dressed/undressed, so I thought the onesie collar might work...

but I don't believe in stealing patterns (copying from a store-bought item of clothing *is* stealing, unfortunately), so I drafted this my self... The armscye needs work... luckily the fabric is cheap, and the sewing is fast, so I can make several more attempts....

D is pleased with it, though, he LOVES race cars...

here're some scraps from the block I made... don't they look cool like this?

I'm assuming my dude doesn't read this, at least not regularly, so I can sneak a post with his valentines present... he (and the two kids) will get an envelope, with his name embroidered, and then some bits that can button onto the cards... (the one in the middle says "*heart* my stinko")

here's another pic of the shirt, from the side...
