However, I admit I've been doing a lot of this. I'm holding Allison in this photo and she is smiling at me for the first time. That was a fun afternoon. Being Nanny is wonderful.
In the middle of my blog nap I needed a boy baby quilt in a hurry. I went to my 2 1/2" square scrap bin and made 16 patch blocks and bordered them in cute owl fabric I picked up at Just Sew.
This owl fabric is darling. The quilt will be for my sister Teri's new grandson. It was fun to stop everything and make a quilt start to finish in 2 evenings. I enjoyed it.
Don't you love to see stacks? I was mentioning to Stephanie of Loft Creations about loving stacks of fabric, quilts and things. Stephanie had this post with stacks of dishcloths. Above is my stack of table runners I've been working on for the past couple weeks whenever I could sneak in some sewing time.Some of the runners have big pinwheels . . .and some of the runners are from kits I bought last Christmas from the girls at Quilt Taffy. Oops my shadow is in that picture.These are all gifts. I've got to give them away soon so they can be used and enjoyed this season.I've also been making these. But they aren't finished yet. More on that later this week.I'm also working on this. It is a Christmas table cloth I'm repurposing. I sure wish I'd started this one months ago. But I have to remember it is a wonderful season of giving and doing. I want to enjoy making things for Christmas. And I've also been getting some things in the mail! More on that later this week too. (Gifts are fun.)
