February 27, 2009 - Baby hats and a sofa blanket

Not much quilting happening here. I have been working quite a bit for my job, and catching up on laundry. I have made 11 baby hats so far, here are the 2 most recent. This is Bernat Baby Jacquard, Lemon Pie. I never knew Lemon pie had blue and green in it!

I also made a fleece blanket throw for the sofa. Instead of fringing it, I hemmed all the edges with a fancy stitch on my sewing machine. Kind of a boring picture. But it is warm on those cold winter days. Which seems to be going on forever.

February 17, 2009 - Working at home

Today I am working at home for my job as director of operations for a non-profit, as well as doing housework. Lots of laundry and dishes waiting to be cared for. And I still need to unpack from our trip to San Diego.

While that all takes place, I have a whole chicken simmering in a pot for soup. It smells so good! And I am trying to resist opening my Netflix and Blockbuster DVDs that arrived today.

February 16, 2009 - Phoebe is coming for another visit!

I just talked to the breeder last night and we have arranged for Phoebe to come visit March 5-21! We are very excited. It is very sad to have a home without a dog. I never would have thought I would think that. Now I know the truth : )

February 8, 2009 - A Long Absence

I was out of town for 2 trips in January so I haven't updated in a while.

My cousin is involved with the quilting club at the grade school where she teaches. They had a number of quilts that needed binding and because it's my favorite part of the quilting process, I volunteered to bind 3 of them. So that is what I did last week. It was very satisfying and I got to watch a bunch of TV episodes on DVD that I have wanted to see.

Next I will continue to work on and finish my Star Student quilt, then my son's Irish Chain quilt.

Plus I have found a place to donate my baby caps I have been knitting--the local hospital where my kids were born. The hats are just so fun to knit and they are so cute!
