A Scrappy Finish

A while ago, actually several years ago, I made this scrappy quilt top. It was one of those sewing days where the scrap basket was overflowing and I had to do something with all those little pieces! So, I did a little improv sewing, making wonky, scrappy, log cabin blocks.

I finally finished it last week. It is the first thing I've completed from my 2012 Goal Board. I gifted this little lap quilt to my MIL on Mothering Sunday (Mother's Day in England), while she was here visiting. I hope she will enjoy it!

Bragging. Again.

Back in December, Nathan participated in his school Science Fair. He decided on an engineering type project using Legos. We built a small shake table and he tested to see if a tower's stability would be affected by it's height and displacement. It was really a fun project.

Oh, and he won First Place in his class!

And then, the school selected his project to go on to the County Science Fair, which took place last week.

His project was included in the Fourth Grade Engineering, Mathematics and Gaming category. And I'm very proud to say that he took First Place!!

Congratulations Nathan!
