Wow, I managed to get a lot done.
This morning I woke up bright and early.
I got all of the fabric pressed.
I started with the monkey/jungle green fabric and got all of it cut into squares.
Yep, I'm making quilts....baby size quilts.
8 in total. 4 girls-Princess/Barbie, 2 boy-superhero/transformers, and 2 monkey/jungle.
Even for the bigger kids (huh, Hunter's the oldest at almost 4), I figured they would like the super soft fabric and maybe size won't matter so much.
I know a lady with an embroidery machine and I'm thinking of asking her to embroider each kid's name on their blanket before I put the backing on. Either that or their initials. I think it would look nice with their names though.
I had 2 little helpers all day, and neither one had a nap. Rylie chattered away in her room for almost an hour but never fell asleep.
I finished sewing the top of one of the monkey quilts.
I still have the rest of the fabric to cut, but after cutting the first set of fabric my poor wrist needed a break. All of the material I cut today was flannel.
I didn't do any kind of pattern, I just threw all of the squares in a bag and pulled them out one by one, so as long as I didn't get 2 in a row it was good. The picture is a little deceiving because there are some off white squares next to the light green backing material squares and they almost look the same in the picture.
I also managed to make an almond pound cake, and a loaf of pumpkin bread.
It was a busy day and now I'm beat. My eyes are very heavy and I'm hoping I will be able to get out of bed tomorrow morning......
