Cute little guy!

I can't wait to see what all the hacking turns into. Hopefully it's not going to make my Christmas Wishlist even bigger!

Rafael's Mum said...

That is a lovely photo! All I ever got on my first day at school attempts was a frown and a looking darkly from under the eyebrows! Does any kid ever like their mum taking these "firsts" pictures?

Pat said...

Your son is adorable. I didn't know you sketched? You need to show us some of your sketches one day.

Dawn said...

Is that prairie points I see in the sketch? I'm working on a prairie point quilt right now. It's such a cute look!

Aimee said...

He's a cutie...and at least you can get yours to smirk. Mine stares at me w/ a "c'mon get it over with face" until I give in . Drives me crazy.
Love the fabric. Somehow I've not seen that line, yet it so that was a treat. Thanks.

Happy Back to School ... ours starts on Tuesday! I can't WAITTTTT. VERY nice work lately, girlie. You rock.

Rose said...

You know, it's comforting in a way when I come to your blog (at psiquilt.COM!!) to hear your music, it's a part of your blog and I hope you never change it! Jackson is gonna be a heartbreaker (if he's not already!). His eyes have such depth, he's got beautiful eyes!! And I love that you add the material names to every post, cuz you know we're gonna ask!!

Christy said...

Happy Back to School! I can't believe it's here already! I love your birthday countdown! And, those fabrics are great! Can't wait to see what you do with them!
