Its finished!


I am not a quilter, but I have always wished that I was. I started this quilt back in February at my mom's house (where I could raid her fabric) and finally just finished tonight (hand stitching the binding is hard! My fingers really hurt!) This is a ragged squares quilt for beginners and its not perfect and puckers everywhere, but since I made it, I love it almost as much as a third child. I would like to dedicate this to Jenny, Chante and Angie, the stalwart members of the sewing club (may it rest in peace). I now want to make one like this but I don't think my skills are quite there yet.

I finished crocheting hats for a bit, and am now thinking of new projects for some new babies, but I haven't been inspired yet. They all live in warm climates! I will think of something.

You should love it, it is great. And I am sure you are up for trying the other one. My latest sewing was a halloween costume for a 29 year old (the orginal Peter Pan in our family). We miss you guys but I am glad to see you are settling in nicely. Angie

Wow, I just start on hard quilts, so mine is more than like a child. It is larger than life, and Daniel hates it. I always bring it our because I worked so hard on it. Keep up the great work!

You are so talented. I have never tried a quilt and I don't think I can follow rules:-)
