Last night I finished my bee blocks for the Trust Circle of do.Good Stitches. I enjoyed these blocks, we were asked to use blue, turquoise and aqua for the blocks with jewel tones in the centers.
I hope these work, I am excited to see the finished quilts from the Trust Circle. The past couple of days have been a nightmare in Toddlerland. Anne has been throwing lots of temper tantrums, I am working on helping her deal with her emotions and trying to equip her with the words to tell me what is bothering her. I will keep working with her on that.
Make sure you drop by tomorrow – you won’t be sorry!
oooh! Lovely blocks!
Good luck in Toddlerland! My two are upstairs right now trying to ‘play nicely’ so that we can do something fun today once they start getting along…we’ll see if it works…
I feel like I should know how old your daughter is but I can’t remember but worked with Cedi was a time out on the stairs (a minute for each year old), counting, and ignoring it.
With Capri – not much works but usually doing my best to ignore it until she can calm herself down works okay…
Just be strong!
Beautiful blocks. Helping her to communicate by giving her words or signs will hopefully help. They don’t understand even at 3/4 that they don’t always get what they want. Giving options of what they can have or do helps some and they think they are big stuff because they get to choose.
Love these turquoise and aqua blocks! I am so happy that you posted the completed 9-patch yesterday; I saw it in my Google reader, and then again in my email — and ideas began to gel with the “second sighting.” I love how the block maker used different colors for each block, and love how you arranged the colors in the quilt!
Pretty blocks! Anne has such a great mommy! She will get there, and things will get easier. 🙂
great looking blocks! I hope today is a better day for Anne…and you 🙂
Super blocks! Love all the blues….Can it be? That cherubic smile is turned upside down? Oh, Anne, take it easy on Mommy today! 🙂
Breathe deeply, m’dear; it will work out – you are a great mom and you will find the right strategy! Hugs! (Praying for you)
log cabins blocks are so easy and always look good.
Beautiful colors. Anne will soon go from not having the right words to having too many words!
Love the colours. Good luck with the kiddo, although I did have to laugh to myself recently at a mother tearing her hair out as she pushed her kid round the supermarket in the trolley while he merrily sang ‘shit, shit, shit’ at the top of his voice 😉
Love the colors & wonky blocks! Don’t despair…you’re such a great mom. All will be right. And sewing is great therapy…so is blogging!
I’m NEVER sorry I drop by! =) The blocks are great and I can just see how wonderful these colors will be. Toddlers can be difficult at the best of times, and missing her daddy certainly isn’t that. I have every confidence in your parenting skills, and in her ability to learn how to deal with her feelings. Keep sewing, it will all work out. =)
Love the block, has inspired me to cut into my precious collection.. Can you tell me what pattern you like for the Log cabin. Mine is clear as mud.
Great blocks! Turquoise is one of my favorite colors. Good luck with Anne. It’s always so hard when a parent is deployed. My perfect little Jake turned into monster Jake while his dad deployed several years ago. He was good for everyone except me. Go figure…the parent that is left behind usually gets the brunt of the kiddos anger/sadness. Sending hugs your way. :O)
Love the colors — Anne will learn she is a very smart girl! Just like her Mom!
