This weekend we attended Joe's grandparents' 65th wedding anniversary party. 65 years! What an amazing accomplishment.
In honor of their anniversary, I made them a patchwork pillow. Because I waited until 2 hours before the party to work on it (about the same time I came up with the idea), it didn't turn out quite how I would have liked. The quality of work suffered because of my rush.
I had rotary cutter problems. Well, actually Lera problems. The rotary cutter veered off and I cut some of the already-embroidered squares a little funky, resulting in not-level-not-squared-squares. I didn't have time to fix it. (See the date is not level.)
At the party, Mason was trying to rollerskate. He has been wanting to do this for so long. We don't have a place at our house for him to try. And cobblestone sidewalks certainly aren't safe or easy for little ones. One of Joe's sisters bungeed a pillow to Mason's bottom to cushion his repeated falls. Kudos for trying, little man!
