School is finally back in session, and the hubs is back at work, so I had my first toddler(and spouse)less Tuesday in two weeks!! Woohoo!!! Lilli is recovering from strep throat, though, so I did pick her up at noon to come home and eat and take a real nap - so I had a little over two hours after I got back to the house to get to work.
I showed this quilt top yesterday - - -
- - - - which I pieced a back for today - but unfortunately didn't get a pic of! I put together a batt, quilt top, back and binding for a friend to take and quilt. And - - - I finally started working on my quilt for ALQS5! It's still in the very early stages, but at least it's started! So that's how I spent my Toddlerless Tuesday!
And I found a couple of pictures I took earlier that I forgot to share with you all - Lilli and I went to the library on December 21st and got to meet a real reindeer! Lilli was so excited - the whole time they were telling us about reindeer in general and this one (named Snowflake) in particular, she was asking me when she would get to pet it! As soon as the handler said, "Does anyone want to pet Snowflake?" she was up and over there by him!
She was totally fearless petting the reindeer - all the other little kids were hanging back, but she was right there petting Snowflake. I think even Snowflake was surprised! Our neighbor has miniature horses that Lilli likes to play with, and the reindeer was just about the same size. They really are much smaller than you would think they would be! And I found out something interesting - they have a tendon in their hind legs that clicks when they walk - and that's how the reindeer find each other in a snowstorm! "Up on the housetop, CLICK CLICK CLICK!" Who knew that's what it meant? ;-)
I hope you had a productive and happy day!
