Thanks for all the baby gift love! Sometimes I wish I could work on small, quick projects all the time. I’m sure that would get boring, but they’re so great for instant gratification. Unlike all of my UFOs — they have delayed gratification. It’s probably much greater gratification when it finally happens, but for me, my long-term projects, sure do take a loooong time.
At the risk of causing SweetiePie to have heart failure, I’ve resurrected my most pressing loooong term project, the wedding quilt. I started it before TheFirstChild and SweetiePie got married, but shortly after the wedding, I got sidetracked … and somehow never got back to it. The plan is to put the newlywed monogram on the quilt and I think that’s where it took a wrong turn. We got locked up trying to figure out what font to use for the monogram.
(That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) Yesterday, I finally dragged my big sheet of paper to work and hooked my laptop up to a projector at lunchtime, so that I could get a big enough monogram for the quilt. I took the picture above with my cell phone, ’cause, you know, we aren’t allowed to have cameras at work. Uh-uh. That’s not a camera. It’s a phone. Say it with me now…it’s not a camera, it’s a phone. That’s not a picture you’re looking at, it’s a phone call.
Last night, I came home from work and started pressing and cutting. I’m hoping I’m over the hump now and that I’ll get back to work on this quilt. I HAVE to chip away at my UFO pile — it’s driving me nuts!
And, um, I can’t drag out a UFO and not start something new, can I? Did you notice that Cassie is going to have a crochet-along for those adorable pillowcases that Beate at Rose Hip makes? I’ve got some fabric and as soon as I get some thread/yarn, I’ll be ready to get started.
You should join us! Cassie promises to walk us through these pillowcases, step-by-step, and if you don’t know how they’re made, I promise you’re going to discover a cool little surprise in the technique. Go check out Cassie’s post, grab her button, and play along with us!
