The American Beauty is shaping up nicely. It goes quickly and there is visual progress. I am using Eleanore Burns method of applique with fusible interface. The points are not that sharp but good enough for me. I haven't done much paper piecing.
We did science experiments this weekend. My DS#1 was trying determine which beverages glow under a black light. Tonic water was the only winner.
DD#1 was trying to determine which ice cream melts the slowest. I think we determined that it does not matter which stabilizers are in it, but how dense the ice cream is. Ben and Jerry's win.
Here is a rousing game of operation. If we can get the small child to quit cheating all will be good. (It is good with a little cheating too.)
