Sherbet pips baby blanket...

With hubbie far, far away in New Zealand for work until October, I have my weekends all to myself.  I used to really look forward to a solo weekend once in a while - it's a little different when you have six of them back to back and the weeks in between!
Although I miss him very much, I am trying to make use of my time to be uber-productive.  This is what I got up to yesterday - some Sherbet Pip blocks to make a baby blanket for my coworker that just had her second baby - a girl this time.


 Luckily she doesn't know I have a blog, so I can share my progress with you without blowing the surprise!


I just loved the little girls on the tree swings, so I started by fussy-cutting nine of them, and building up the blocks around them.



When I finished the blocks I finally stopped procrastinating about cutting the lawn.  I wasn't looking forward to it, but what is considered a large yard in Italy is still fairly small according to Canadian standards, so it didn't take me very long.  Can't wait to make this yard beautiful next year!




It was a good day.
