Arrrrr Me Mateys!

You know how sometimes parents are sooo excited about having a kid so that they can play with kid toys without feeling silly or go to kid movies without people giving them a hard time? Yeah...I'm glad to have a boy child because it means I have an excuse to do Piratey Things. (Which makes me think of Veggie Tales). Last night I started a new quilt and although I'm claiming that "it's for Tyler...", I really mean that I bought the fabric because I liked it and it makes me happy each time I see it. I love the blues, greens and reds together...So fun!
The line of fabric is called "Pirates" and it is super piratey. Ships, skulls, pirate sayings, etc. So far I have 9 out of 20 blocks completed, which I consider great progress considering that I spent about 2 1/2 hours on it and I was watching a movie so spent a portion of that time distracted.
