One great thing about young cousins is how eager they are to please. They'll fetch you cans of pop from the fridge in the basement, or cookies out of the jar on the kitchen counter. I managed to trick Jules into being my little sweat shop worker! She helped cut out the rest of my blue kaleidoscope triangles, placed pieces right sides together and made neat little piles for me to chain piece, and even ironed them open as I got done sewing them. I wish I'd taken better pictures of the little assembly line we had going.

Before you go thinking I'm a horrible cousin, I did allow her to have some fun this weekend. We went tubing/skiing/swimming out on the lake,
crashed flew a remote controlled airplane in the back pasture, played with a llama, rearranged the furniture in my old dollhouse (only after evicting some spiders), played Qwirkle, and even checked out a local quilt shop we hadn't been to yet. All in all, it was a pretty spectacular weekend. Thanks to her help I managed to get quite a bit of quilting done. YAY!
