31.2: Bubbles in the Backyard
We got some new bubble making devices today (bribes for good behavior at Target) and decided to try them out in the backyard. For a $1, they worked pretty good! (Mallory was there playing too, she just didn’t get in any pictures.)

52 Weeks :: Week 31

31.2: Fellas
Jonathan flew from California (where he had been working for the week) to Michigan to spend a day with Errick to uplift his spirits and uplift him in prayer. There were six other guys (mostly friends from high school) that did the same thing. It was a special trip for everyone involved.

Cell phone pic, I think?

Lots-o-Blocks

31.3: Criss Cross, Lots of Cross Blocks
Coincidentally (and luckily and thankfully), Jonathan is taking a couple days off from work this week. He was able to help with the girls so Lucia could spend a good portion of her time working on putting the quilt top together. There have been over 200 cross blocks sent in that need to be sorted, arranged, trimmed and sewed together.

Top: DONE!

31.6: Top Done!
The quilt top of Trudy’s Arse Kicking Quilt for Errick is done! Tomorrow Lucia will take it to the long arm quilter. A local professional long arm quilter has very generously donated her services to quilt the quilt (“to quilt the quilt” means to sew stitches that keep the quilt top, batting and quilt back — the “quilt sandwich” — together). Lucia has always quilted her quilts herself on her home machine, but with a quilt this large, she gladly accepted the offer of someone else quilting it; the value of the services donated is about $125.

More on the quilt for Errick at this stage in the process (including an explanation of the can label) can be found here.

31.7: Riders
Mallory is still more comfortable riding her little bike instead of the bigger bike she got for her birthday. Chelsea can keep up with her big sister just fine when they go out to ride bikes/scooters.
