I did end up getting to most of my Christmas gift projects from my queue this year, but sometimes you need to admit defeat. I wanted to make Quentin a set of blocks from the scrap wood we had left over after building the chicken coop. I did pretty well. Cut out the pieces and sanded...oh about 8 of them. I managed to get some of them done while Q and I were playing outside but the weather has been so rainy that there hasn't been much outside playtime recently. So the blocks will have to wait for his birthday. Or maybe he'll get to have them before his birthday if I finish them months ahead of time and don't want to wait to give them to him (more likely scenario).
Here he was "helping" me trace out the shapes for his blocks on the larger pieces of wood.
Everything turns into a game of peek-a-boo right now. Where's Quentin??
There he is! Peek a boo!
Do you ever have to admit defeat on well-intentioned projects? Or at least postpone them for another time. I sure hope I'm not the only one!
