The "oooh oooh oooh" phase

My six month old has reached the phase of development where he knows to complain rather than outright scream, but he only knows how to make a few sounds.   So, whenever he wants anything, all day long, he goes "oooh oooh oooh" in a disgruntled voice.  I remember it getting better with all the others once they got more mobile and weren't getting stuck in various baby entertainment contraptions whenever I had to get something done.  I don't want him to grow up too fast, but I'd be OK with him learning to make a few other noises when complaining.  His lack of interest in his baby toys is putting a bit of a cramp into my crafting/quilting/blogging time, but his giggles and cuddles are more than making up for it.  He's so big now!  He grew 2.5 inches and 2.5 pounds in the last two months alone.  The doctor said that's quite a growth spurt ;)

I've made a few 241 Totes recently, one was used as a gift bag for the end of the year
teacher gift we made for my daughter's teacher this year.  

It was so fun to make it, that I made a second one for myself out of some Heather Ross Spoonflower 
fabrics.  I love this pattern and the bag itself is so functional.  I used a canvas dropcloth from Home
Depot for the natural on my tote.

I made a matching phone case and zippy pouch too :)

I also made my first little zombie block for my quilting bee quilt.  My month is July and I can't wait to 
see the cute little zombie blocks my friends make for me.

I also made a wall hanging for my Dad for Father's Day:

And I made some little monster pouches modeled after the ones by Basic Grey for the kiddos to take on our vacation

And, last but not least, some embroidery and cross stitching and a work in progress...

Next on my list is finishing this binding by hand sewing it down
