Although we have been spending more time outside and enjoying the beautiful days, I HAVE been working on a few projects. First off....a blankie for baby Colton. I should have known he would come early, but for some reason I just got it done. I actually didn't do a lot on this one. Both the front and the back were a panel---even the chenille applique. So I only had to quilt and bind it. BUT I still love it. I used a receiving blanket for the binding and I LOVE the stries. If you don't know how to sew very well head over to JoAnns and try one of these cute panels--they 4 different designs in both boy and girl colors--just a suggestion.
Next up on the list...
I started this 9 patch tablerunner at the craft retreat and finally finished it. I made it from scaps of about everything I have ever made:) The worst part is that I pieced the binding with 5 inch pieces. It looks bad and was a PAIN to sew through all of those seams. Live and learn I guess.
Then it was back to making receiving blankets. Todd's cousin had a baby girl recently and one of his high school friends will be having a boy soon. SOOOO I took advantage of JoAnn's sale on flannel (2 bucks a yard---yay!!!) and got going.
