There has not been much sewing lately, mainly because of this little buggar,. his brother and my mother. It seems when I sit down to sew I am asked to take care of one of the three. Then when I come back, I have no desire to continue sewing. Trust me when I tell you that this little guy, his brother and my mother trump sewing anyday.
Funny story about this little guy. This is his first bath. He was wide awake when she put him in this chair to bath him. He fell immediately asleep. She washed his hair, face, moved him around and he was totally asleep. I guess he felt so safe and warm. His mom and I just shook our head, we have never seen anything like it.
On the sewing front. I have made it a goal to finish all of my quilt tops this year that have been hanging around forever.
I am working on my son's quilt. I have showed it to you before.
I just threw it over my bed...sorry and it is all wrinkled. This week I took off part of the bottom and added a row of flying geese to the top. I was not happy with this before but once I changed the row to the top, it made me all excited to get this done.
Then the idea came to me so I texted my son. I asked him if he wanted me to make this a king size quilt. This quilt just fits the top of my bed and hangs maybe an inch over the sides. The length is perfect.
He wrote back and said a King size would be good.
I wrote him back and said it may take a while. I plan to make flying geese for the side. It will have to be in black since I no longer have any of the fabrics. You can see that the blue on the side does not match the blue in the middle. Oh well...what can I say, this quilt has been almost 20 years in the makings.
So...he writes me back and said "That's ok, it's like a fine wine going for the 20 year taste.
I thought that was so funny.
Well...today I am going to cut out the flying geese and hopefully, get this done before his birthday in a few weeks. Wish me luck. Gotta get her out of here.
