4 year old ideas

So I dropped off my 2 oldest at daycamp today and I asked my 4 year old son what should we do and he suggests... "Let's go to the quilting store" what a great idea!! What a little sweetheart. (he likes going because they have good toys)

Well I found the perfect snowman fabric for a winter project. (not that I'm thinking about winter or anything) I can't get a picture to show the cute little faces on the snowmen - but its perfect. Its from Andover Fabrics.

A cute little summer kit hopped into my arms too (and I never buy kits) - from Applepatch designs. Terry Morberg makes such great patterns. I'll have to whip it up quick 'cause summer won't last much longer.

The other picture is of a UFO I pulled out to work on this weekend. There were 12 blocks initially but it just wasn't what I wanted. I did the applique this spring and put it in instead of 3 of the blocks. It still needs a border. The applique in progress is in my blog header. I was working on it at a lake overlooking the mountains and couldn't resist taking a picture to remember a lovely quiet evening of stitching. My DH was out fishing with the kids.
I just can't get these pictures to go where I want them - arg!!

I love the snowmen, they're adorable. What are you going to use them for?

Which kit did you pick up?

Thanks for visiting my blog, www.persnicketyquilts.blogspot.com. Thought I'd visit and see what you are up to. I love the colors and traditional patterns you work with. The Flying Geese quilt is really lovely. BRAVO for sticking with hand quilting. That's always been my favorite part of the process. As to your son's willingness to visit the quilt shop, my June 18 and July 4 posts illustrate the perils of visiting the quilt store with children in tow.
