The fun's almost starting...

This morning there are some very strange clouds in the air because we had some huge fires in the hills above San Jose, CA last weekend.

This makes for some red-looking light peeking through my curtains. I used it to photograph the "Happy 2nd Birthday" block this morning. The "2" itself is actually more purple than anything else.

I used that freezer paper method again, and silk thread by YLI to applique it down. It's my favorite thread for applique. It literally disappears.

We'll be asking the party guests to sign the block on Saturday, so really looking forward to all the fun. My mother-in-law is arriving today, and most of the other guests arrive tomorrow. The fun's only just around the corner!

This is a wonderful idea. Something he'll treasure later.
