An attempt...

At sewing that is.  I made two and a half blocks of my little man's quilt.  And boy is my wrist/hand sore tonight because of it.  Guess it is still too soon.  They came out great though.  I love them.  Now I have a total of four done. Oiy, I need a total of 77!!!  I got a long way to go.
The dinosaur one was my first block.

So far the one on the left is my favorite.

And I have news...a good friend of mine is having a baby.  This will be number three for her.  I am sooo excited for her and her new husband.  But this also means that I have two baby quilts to make now.  Can't wait to find out what each of my friends are having.  I wanna go buy some great fabrics!  This hand better heal real soon.
Speaking of buying fabric.  A friend of mine is having a yard sale tomorrow and her mother is selling a ton of fabric!  I can't wait, I am hoping she has some great stuff!  Hmmm, wondering how much money I should bring...

Ho Hum

So I am kind of sad.  I had surgery on my wrist last week and have been in this half cast since.  Haven't been able to do, scrap, even take care of my kiddos.  And typing, well that is not fun to do with one hand when you are use to using two. 

Nice and swollen, huh.

I am just dying to work on my sons quilt again.  I have the blocks all in order.  Just need to pin them and sew.

I am also waiting patiently for my best friend to find out if she is having a girl or a boy, so she can pick colors for her nursery and then I can pick colors for her quilt.  So many pictures on the abundant number of blogs I have been reading are so inspiring.  I can't wait to get going.

Well, bye for now, this typing is not fun.

Quilt #2

So I have begun to cut quilt #2 (for my little man).  Although he is not so little anymore.  He starts kindergarden on Tues.  How time flies.  The pattern he chose for his quilt is not big enough for his bed, so I have to make more blocks than it calls for.  I hope I figured it out right.  I am planning on 77 block.  OIY!  And we had to buy some more fabric since after going through his stack of fabric he picked out last yr, he decided he didnt want three of them.  So this is what was left.
The bottom fabric (red baseball) will be for the binding.  I am hoping I have enough.

And so we took another trip to the fabric store.  He was so excited and found so many he liked.  But he was very clear with which ones were for his quilt.  This is what we ended up getting.
Birds, airplanes, dinosaurs, all so him!  Not sure why he picked the red, but he said he wanted it.  And that is what this quilt is all about.  What he wants.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.
