Other than a brief visit from Arthur our summer has been off to a fabulous start! I wasn't sure how much sewing time I'd actually get while we were in Maine but with so much swimming and water skiing by afternoon the kids are ready for a little quiet time which gives me a chance to sneak in some sewing:-) After my success with Murray the Whale I was ready to jump in and make the child sized version of Oh, Fransson!'s Preppy the Whale.
There are lots of pieces to cut and I found the key is to stay organized. It's easy to get confused with so many different sized pieces so I have a post-it marked pile for each component.
Once everything was cut I set up camp on the deck and started chain piecing my way through all those piles... I'm making good progress and only have a few more whales to go. As long as the sun keeps shining I should be done in no time:-)
