Could Anna seriously be any more amazing? She’s colorful, she’s inspiring, she’s pregnant and still sewing…I’m so jealous! You know you want to go check her site out. Go drool over her fabric stash and amazing quilts that peek out of every post, even when the post isn’t even about quilts. She’s amazing. Seriously. Go look!
Yesterday I mentioned pictures that were taken on the non-missing camera. For once I plan on following through with my intentions. Here they are…only two, I know, but I haven’t picked out my other favorites yet so you have to settle for these.
Notice that lovely black and white and pink quilt they’re all piled up on? I finished that Monday night. It was the first time I’ve ever hand sewn anything and I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I used twice the amount of batting as normal and did the binding by folding over the backing material and stitching that to the front. It didn’t turn out exactly straight and my corners are in no way mitered, but the babies really like chewing on the extra thick binding and they both like it a lot, which is all that matters. I’ll try to get some better pics of the quilt itself today, but it’s pretty gray and gloomy outside so it may have to wait…stinkin’ April showers!
Today I’m making a tablecloth so I can take some shots of the kitchen and show it off. I’m in love with this whole house, it’s so much better than the one we just moved out of, and the kitchen is perfect. The kitchen was the room that decided it for me – it was too perfect to pass up. I’ll show you soon.
Well, the baby is sound asleep and I need to take advantage of that and go do something productive around here. Much as I hate to…lol. Maybe I can get some sewing in real quick…whaddya think?
