I did finish hand quilting the baby hearts quilt and added the binding last night. I still need to hand stitch it down... cause after I got to my recliner it seems Peanut had overtaken it! I picked him up to move him and he landed on my lap, belly and chest... he was laying down and comfy! and Sophie jumped up onto the foot part. I was unable to do any hand work with those helpers.
So I pulled out the next 2 quilts I was thinking about hand quilting. The baskets and the cat and mice.
I asked the kids.... they said the baskets... which is nice and small and should go quickly.
I was going to stop at Joanns on the way home from bowling to pick up some hand quilting batting...but since that basket one is small I 'think' I can piece the leftovers from the baby quilt to be big enough.
One more week of the kids being home........ not that I am counting down the days until January 3 when they go back to school! =).
Grant me patience today... Emily will try and quilt her quilt this afternoon.
I gave myself a little gift this morning. I had purchased a year subscription of Craftsy earlier this year for me and the kids. The deal gave me a $25 coupon each quarter. Well, that got spent this morning buying some fat quarters of a pretty red and cream line that was marked down, a charm pack of that and a charm pack of purples. Yes, it was a little over but that $8 was worth it! I also purchased one of my 'free' classes today - a hand quilting one that looked good on the reviews. I can't wait to watch it. I also saved off a slew of free patterns (ok - 11) in case they go away tomorrow. Some dress patterns, little coin cases, skirts, pj's, microwave bowl holders....
I think today will be showing the kids that lava cake video and have them make it for dessert tonight!
