6pm - I decide I want to make baby Jessica a quilt. Decide on a design and go check out my stash of pink
6:30pm - Start cutting random strips of pink and sew them together.
8:30pm - Decide that just plain strips are boring and think of something I could applique on one of the strips. Elephants come to mind.
9pm - Find a elephant outline on google images. Print it out and get the elephants cut out and fused on. Do a blanket stitch by machine around each elephant. There were three. Finish piecing the top.
10:50pm - Go to weekend job. (not to worry, I get to sleep there)
Saturday 9am - Leave work and go buy a backing fabric. Bring it home and wash it.
11am - Start basting. Take phone call from Mom. Realize that Tim has a step daughter who's six that came as well. Crap. Forgot about her.
12pm - Decide to make a My Little Pony tote bag for the older sister Madison
1pm - Go buy ric rac for the tote bag. Finish tote bag. It looks great.
2pm - Start quilting the quilt. Loopy meander with a flower here and there.
3:30 pm - Attach binding.
4:15 pm - Throw the quilt in the wash.
4:45 pm - Take the quilt out of the washing machine and take it to mom and dad's to dry because that's where we're having supper.
4:50pm - Realize you don't have your camera to take pictures of the quilt.
5:30 - Give the nice warm quilt to the baby. :o) And the tote bag to the sister.
5:31pm - Realize that you may just have to make a quilt for the older sister after all!
The quilt pictures were taken with Dad's camera and he was kind enough to e-mail them to me. Thanks Dad!
