But I have to confess: I do not have the time to fix the places where seams have come apart, nor do I have the energy to be that particular. So, I opted for the quick-and-awesome choice: wall hanging!
That's right. Those are embroidery hoops, and I cut up (gasp!) the quilt to fit the hoops. This way, I get to enjoy their handmade beauty every day, and didn't have to do any fixing of seams. Furthermore, when I have a house with my own sewing room (cough IhopeyoureadthisMr.rhymeswithsmile cough), these can go on the walls of that room. Until then, they're next to my side of the bed. So I get to see them first thing every morning!
And, next ... a little bit of fun. I only cut up half the quilt to use in my wall hangings. So, I still have half the quilt that I'd like to pass along to someone who wants it. It's 18 squares (3x6) and three of the sides are hemmed (it's pictured above ... the second picture from the top is a pretty good view of what's there). Measures maybe 30"x60". So, leave a comment, and tell me why you want it. I'll randomly pick someone next Wednesday at 5:00. I hope it's you!
Finally - Little Girl! Look how precious.
|Maybe she looks like me?|
|She really is happy most of the time.|
|something in the basket was funny, I guess.|
|It has been determined:|
She looks like her dad (and I believe
she's wearing one of his old shirts)
