I've mentioned the quilt block swap that I've been participating in before....there's a group of us that are doing it. Each person makes 16 blocks using the same pattern, then we send them all to the ringleader who distributes them to all of the participants, and we get different blocks back. I went a little crazy and opted to make 3 sets of 16.
So these 48 blocks will get mailed off to my friend in Montana tomorrow, and once she receives all of them from everyone, I'll get 48 back. Some will be mine, but most of them will be from the other participants. Can't wait to see what all I get back!
In other news (ha) Alex came back from his father's tonight. They had taken his bike with them and apparently he spent all day riding his bike around up there. He was tired by the time he got here! He voluntarily put on his pajamas, and the next thing I knew, I saw this on my bed....
I feel like I've been in the kitchen all day....maybe because I was. I got another 20 jars of strawberry jam done, plus 5 jars of sugar-free. I'm not too sure about the sugar-free stuff - seems kind of runny still. But I'll give it another day or so to set and see what happens with it.
Tomorrow is back to the routine again. Both boys go to school in the afternoon and then we have a meeting in the evening, and then the rest of the week just gets crazier from there. I think I'm going to try to watch a movie tonight (been trying to watch it for 3 nights now and keep falling asleep) and then get to bed somewhat early.
Yeah, right. Like that'll happen.
