I'm having so much fun sewing along with the "Sewn" quilt blog. Leila posts a new block pattern every week and explains some quilting techniques too. It's perfect for a newbie quilter like me! Here are a few of the blocks:
This really has been the summer of sewing. Maybe it's because my garden is so small so I have more time? Who knows, but anyways, besides making quilts and bibs for friends' babies, I've finished a skirt for Hailey, for myself, and for my neighbor, made a quilted table runner for my Grandma, and a quilted pillow for my Mom, and did a few other misc. projects-- like this buttoned hand towel thing-a-ma-bobber that Leif can't pull off the stove and throw on the floor. I like these style of hand towels because Leif really enjoys throwing everything on the floor. Even things like ceramic bunny mugs, cell phones, and crock pot lids. It's a constant battle. You know, it'd be better if he threw hand towels on the floor, now that I think about it.
Okay, while I'm here, can I just confide that some times I consider giving up on this little blog because I am not organized enough to do it right! I can never figure out where the heck the camera is when I want to snap a quick picture, or where the camera is when I want to take pictures off of and put them on the computer, or where the card reader is, or where the charged batteries for the camera are hiding.......it never ends! Am I the only one with these types of problems? :-) A solution I've considered is to ask for my own camera this Christmas. Even a cheap little one would do the trick. Maybe then my camera card won't always be maxxed out with Lego movies and trampoline antics.........maybe. But I guess, until then, I can do more "literary" posts when I haven't any pictures to share.
