New fabric!

 No Rouenneries today. I got out my Moda Sampler Box and really wanted to do something with one of those super adorable mini charms.
  So I thought. And thought some worries I didn't hurt myself.
I didn't want to do a traditional charm pattern, and I didn't want to open more then one pack....this really kinda dwindled my options. But I had an idea....

And chose to use Verna, with some purple for sashing, and some white too, both from my stash.

And only got this far.

This line is nice and springy. It has an odd, in between but great look. Not Amy Butler, but not April Cornell or Fig Tree either. LOL good thing I don't write descriptions.

    Little Bit decided to be a royal pain in the you-know-where today. She was pretty good this morning, though she had the attention span of a gnat. We played, coloured, painted, play-d'ohed (that's a word right? lol).
After lunch it was chore time. She fought this. How much?
It took her 5 hours to clean her room, it should have taken 15-20 minutes. She got to the point she was arguing that she wasn't arguing.

I'm so tired from arguing with her I think after I wrestle her down and brush and braid her hair after her bath I won't be doing anything but vegging out for a little while. Preferably with a large Bailey's/Amorula on the rocks.

Love the fabric samplers, I am sure I could find something to make of them. Sorry you had a long day, I promise it gets better when they get older, just a different set of problems. Enjoy these times while you can and they are still little. My 4 are all grown up now.

I've had those conversations with my kids as well. You know it's bad when there is arguing over whether there is arguing ;-)) Love the Sampler box. I pulled mine out but still haven't made a decision on how to use them. I may use some for the Siggy Block Swap I signed up for.

I really love the fabrics from your sampler box! Hope you were able to get a few more done today. I can't wait to see your progress on this one!
