While the cat's away, the mouse will play. With scissors.

I keep my ongoing hexagon project in a little basket downstairs on the side table next to the couch.  This way I can pick it up here and there as I find time to sit and work on it a bit.

I really love this little hexie project.

The other day I was upstairs, taking a shower or some other necessity while the baby napped and Carver was left downstairs enjoying some Fireman Sam or Barney for a bit.  

This is usually not a problem.  


When I came back downstairs, I found this guy in some trouble.

He's just recently take a fancy to scissors and all the fun that can be had welding them.

Apparently my little hexie basket's days of going unnoticed by this little fella are over.

I found him working on this quietly on the couch.

I thought I had just found him in time and this was the only damage done.  He said sorry mama and we had a talk about scissors and how we
  only use kiddo scissors and we 
only use them on paper
with mama helping.

Then last night I sat down to catch up on some Hulu with my hexie basket and I found this...

and this


Lucky for him he was sleeping quietly and cutely in his bed so when I went in to "talk to him" about this new discovery, 
he was looking so sweet and innocent I just had to laugh and kiss his cheeks and snuggle on him a bit.

I think I'm going to leave them so someday when the hexie quilt is done and old and we're wrapping his little baby in, I can look at those little scars and remember the curious little imp of a boy I was blessed to have and all the fun little rascally things he did.

After all, memories are what quilts are all about right?


  1. That's a great way to look at it.

  2. You're a good sport about the incident.
    My little one got a hold of my scissors once and When I saw what he did I laughed too.
    You inspired me to write a post about it too.
