Block 4 and more kid art

Last night I successfully finished another block, block 4 to be exact. I was a little bit apprehensive about the triangles at first, but let me reassure you that they weren't that bad. If you look too closely, you'll notice that some of the points don't match up exactly, but it's good enough for me.

Since it's cold outside, I've been trying to do a lot of indoor activities with Isaiah. You've seen the salt dough, and I've spared you his many "drawings," but today I bring you the glue-less collage. I'm sure many of you have seen this idea, I found this particular one over at familyfun.com . I think for many of us hoarders collectors, this is the perfect place for all those tiny scraps and things you can't bare to throw away. The actual directions say to use contact paper, but since I didn't have any around, I used a sheet of printable label that is sticky on the back. It seemsed the perfect size for him and I was able to just tape it to the table. Isaiah loved this project. He especially like the buttons and sequins. And of course my heart was melting each time he said "see-kins mama." Oh, so cute.

And I promise I'll get some more sewing done so I can stop showing of all the kid art. But for now, it's all I have!

Your block looks great to me! It's way better than anything I could ever do!

My Mother is starting to quilt and EVERYTHING she does is perfect. Trust me, a natural gift for quilting does NOT run in the family.
