Must it be Monday?

I shouldn't really fuss about a Monday since all my days run together being home with the kids. Okay, so I have a little, "I can't believe what Thing 2 said," story for my mom to start with so, this one's for you mom! We're getting ready for dinner the other night and I put the kids' plates on the table. My sweet little son gives me a look of disgust and says, "I don't want that! I can see the bad taste in it!" I had to turn back around to walk in the kitchen. He kills me with stuff he says sometimes! What a goofball!

Yesterday afternoon my kids were invited to go to VBS for the week with one of Thing 1's friends. Really? Wow, that leaves me alone for 5 nights from 5:45 to 8:45. Whatever will I do with myself? Well, 4 nights really. Hubbie went on a trip and will be back Wednesday night. So needless to say, I was back home doing my best to get some work done. I finished cutting all the white for Embroidery 101 so all my fabric is cut. I started working on block construction so I will hopefully be ready to go when they post to start embroidery.

Here's where I have my fabrics set out for each block. And you know what's funny? I knew the blocks were going to be big, but I don't think I realized how big.

But they're also very pretty; a nice background to the embroidery yet to come!
I also laid out my X Marks the Spot quilt with all my leftover fabrics from it so I can start piecing a back for it. I don't want it to look too piecy (is that a word?) since the front is really precise.

How busy is your Monday?
