Pork buns, Teething and more quilting – What a weekend so far!!

We have had a big weekend. DaddyMopar took Squeak to visit his brother and sister-in-law on friday afternoon. Squeak loves her aunty, and I encourage them spending time together. Aunty looooves her lil Squeak. I feel lucky my daughter has such a special relationship with her aunt.

When DaddyMopar and Squeak got home we had dinner, I had cooked steamed pork buns. I made the dough in the bellini, it was sooo easy! The recipe from Taste is HERE. They were quite tasty, and Squeak gobbled up two.

We then had an unsettled night, as Squeak woke at 3am and wouldn’t settle. We finally all fell asleep on the couch at 8am watching cartoons. Later on saturday I noticed a new tooth peeking through. Now there are 5 teeth! I had thought it was the buns giving her indigestion, as they had hoisin sauce in them, and maybe it was too spicy?

I have been working on Squeak’s quilt quite a bit lately, I am now hand sewing the back of the binding on, so it could be finished tonight. I am on the last edge, so Squeak could be sleeping under her quilt tomorrow night. I am contemplating washing it first tho, as I want it perfect for her. I did things quite out of order, sewing on binding before trimming to size.

We are almost finished! Normally I do a folded binding, but they are very bulky. This time I did an unfolded, it just means I have to fold under some binding as I sew. I am finding it very enjoyable. It is also less bulky, whick is desirable as it is a very light quilt. I used flannel as the backing as I love the feel of flannel, and I prefer flannel sheets all year round as they are soft and welcoming.

I am looking forward to it being finished! I think Squeak is too, as she reaches for it when I am working in it.

How was your weekend?

Lots of love,
