And he claims he can't spell

This is what I found on the fridge this morning..

I also found out yesterday, from one of the Mom's at J's school, that he can zip up his jacket. I told J to ask her for his help and she says, "J show your Mom how you can zip your own jacket." I laughed, as every single morning he goes on and on about not being able to zip up his jacket. He did it. Quick as can be. I was shocked. Apparently he learned how to do that in the first week of school.

So this morning J was almost in tears because I didn't believe him that he really didn't know how to put his socks on himself.

These are some of the fabrics I am working with.
And this was me in production mode on the weekend.
Everything is now cut out and ready for the machine. I did a mass cutting, now I will do mass putting it all together.

And one last piece of news is that we switched Apple's carseat to J's old one (I was using a friends that was a bit narrower than mine and for sure had passed the carseat crash tests last year. We couldn't find the info on ours.) and what do you know, we had two car rides that did not involve crying and screaming. I think the other one was just not comfortable. Will try it out again tomorrow just in case it was a fluke.

I love the fabrics! Can't wait to see the finished projects.

And I hope the car seat thing works out for you. A was particularly particular about carseats. We eventually stumbled upon one she like, thank goodness!

I love the fridge magnets; a prodigy in the making!

Your ability to turn pieces of fabric into meaningful creations amazes me. I'm still working on the little hole in my ages-old camera bag. I think I need some lessons!
