how about that?! Poor neglected little bloggy. It's been a busy season - birthdays, baby showers, therapy appointments, my son totaled his car [he's fine, thank the Lord]....have to remember to BREATHE sometimes, right? How is your Christmas stitching going? I'm only making one thing, more about that later.
Remember the baby quilt I was making?
Looked great on the design wall. I really loved it. Then I started putting it together, and remembered why I don't do piecing. I'm rubbish at it! No pics of the rows I put together, they're long gone. I found a quilt I'd made awhile ago [couldn't find a pic of it!] and gave her that.
Mum and I went to Shirley's last week, and saw Shirley's dog Greta in her new coat - has fur trim around the hood, isn't that too much...
Shirley had put some magnetic tape on the back of three quilts I made years ago, and put two of them on her fridge
and one on her back [steel] door!
Too funny, I'd forgotten I'd made all those quilts, I'm sure glad she's enjoying them!
This arrived in the mail from O'faigh, bless her, cannot WAIT to see what's in there....
It may end up being the only thing I open on Christmas Day, since mum gave me my teapot early, and my son not only got me a Happy Light already in use but also a new wireless mouse, also in use. Our family is awful about not being able to wait.
Hubby made it to the Hostess outlet before it closed. Yes, I have a big grin on my face.
So. Back to the half-square triangles. I took all the ones that weren't pink, and was going to put them together in a quilt for hubby.
I. Never. Learn. Not even the cupcakes made it better. I was looking at my design wall today, thinking these blocks not only look awfully girly, but they also look wonkier than they should. When he came home, I asked him if he thought it was too girly, and he said no until I mentioned that it was for him. Then, they were too girly.
Out came the Liberated Quiltmaking book by Gwen Marston, and we're heading in a new direction....
I'm having so much fun I can't stand it. I hope you are as well. Life has slowed down a bit, and since this is the only thing I'm making for Christmas, I hope to see you more often! Be blessed!
