Weekend Progress

I didn't get as much done as I wanted. I am almost finished with the Clifford Quilt top, it just needs two borders. My goal was to have it completely finished, so I'm not too far off. I'm not wild about it, just kind of 'meh'. The little red patches got a bit lost, as they are almost the same size as Clifford. I'll reserve final judgement for when it's completely done, and besides, it has to do, because I don't have the time or inclination to make a different one.

The Amy Butler Swing bag I'm doing for my mom (for a baby shower at her work) is all ready to stitch together. I had hoped to have that done as well. I always get screwed up with the spring time change ("Spring ahead one hour"). That lost hour is missed! I hope to get some work done on it today.

Off to get the boys up and start our studies. We're planning to go to the Mitchell Park Domes this morning, as it's free for residents on Monday mornings. It'll be nice to get out; it's raining, and pretty much has been off and on since Friday afternoon.

Your boys are the same age distance apart that i imagine mine will be. I have an almost 6 year old, and an 8 month old, and probably won't be ready to have the third baby for another 4 years or so. How do you find the age distance?

Krista, I LOVE the age spacing between my kids. My first has always seemed older than he really is, so it really feels like there are 5 years between each child. It's great, for our family. We get to enjoy and savor each baby (and they are STILL babies at 3, IMO), the older ones have enjoyed my last pregnancy and remember what newborns are like. They are great helpers -- having the third baby has been almost too easy, I have so much help! I shudder at the thought of having babies close in age, it would not be good for us.
