So far this year is looking up to be The Sewing Year. I made a couple simple baby blankets back when I was expecting Pokado, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I sat down and really got to know my machine. Since then I’ve been kinda busy with it:
First Patchwork Quilt–a baby blanket made for my SIL’s second child
Second Patchwork Quilt (First Rag Quilt)–a baby blanket made for another SIL’s second child
And finally, the Dearliest took a turn one night turning long pieces of landscape fabric into some rather large bags for his insulation vacuum. Reports came back that the bags worked well, indeed.
(Yes, I did eat ice cream and watch him sew…after cutting out the fabric for him. Do you know how AWESOME it is to watch a man sew?)
Next project: Turn a dozen or so old work shirts from the Dearliest’s previous company into a quilt, incorporating the logos and shirt pockets. First order of business is researching how to best cut shirts for making blocks!
