has taken on a whole new meaning. My aunt was out shopping, saw some really cute pajama pants, and bought me some. She got to talking to my mum about them, and they decided they would make good quilts, as they're 100% cotton! I think so too...and they were only $3 a pair.
Together, they picked out the largest sizes they could find, so I'd get more bang from their buck. How fun is that??? I can't wait to come up with a quilt for these!
I just started making a gift for my brother's upcoming birthday, I'm using a free design from Wendy at Sugarlane Quilts, it's so darling!!! Thank you Wendy!
Years ago, after our father died, I took my brother on a fishing trip. He's 11 years younger than I am, so he was a little guy - I think maybe6 or 7? All we caught was a tree across the river, but we had a lovely time. I'm pairing this with a gorgeous fishing-themed fabric, and making a big cushion for him. I hope he likes it, and that it brings back good memories. I'll show you when I'm done.
Another freeze warning tonight, I'm going to be huddled under quilts, stitching away. Sounds kind of nice, doesn't it?
