** I would like to start off by asking that anyone reading this please say prayers for all those affected by the explosions during the Boston Marathon. **
I spent half my weekend emptying out the basement and relocating my sewing nook. We then found out that the workers need to get into the room that I put everything in. The room was so packed that they couldn't get to the closet they need. Great. We need to reschedule. And clearly, I need to purge.
I am happy to say I finished the baby quilt. It was pretty easy, but sewing the ties was a bear -- 101 in all. I want to be sure the quilt lasts through several washings. (The first one I made in 2008 belongs to Jordan and it's still his favorite. I reviewed the pattern here.) I groaned throughout the entire process but I'm very happy with it. I will give it to my coworker after I share it at the next BMQG meeting. :) If you like the fabric, check out my Spoonflower shop!
It feels great to get something done, right? I have many more projects on deck. The next one being my Pearl Bracelet hexagon project. DH made my design board this weekend. I am so happy to have it. After looking at what I had already sewn on the board, I realized I need to take about half of the hexagons apart. Ugh. As I say, when sewing, you have to be willing to take it out. On the upside, I already feel the creative juices flowing for other projects.
