So, it may be February, but I’m so proud to say that I indeed have finished my long languishing Christmas Quilt!
Lord almighty, it’s been quite the couple of weeks. I’m really glad I went hard and heavy working on the Christmas quilt earlier this month, because without my nose to the grindstone there would have been no hope of finishing by the UFO contest’s February 4th deadline.
Here’s what it looked like last time I updated.
And here’s the backing I chose! I loved the poinsettia option, but it was just too pricey for my cheap ass.
So, what’s happened with the quilt, and life, in the last two weeks? If you have a weak stomach, proceed with caution. You have been warned.
We’ve been having quite the weather here the last couple of days. Rain, rain and more rain…with daytime temperatures hovering around freezing (and dipping below at night). I’ve managed to make it in to work every day so far, but I had Midwestern Interesting* parts of my commute each day with slippery stretches of road. Snow? Expected here in the Winter. Ice? A bit more of a problem. But, it’s been manageable.
Anywho enough about the weather: just wanted to share updates on some projects and a couple of plans!
Wow, I didn’t realize how long it had been since I last posted. I was kind of on a roll with the maternity wardrobe, though, so it’s good to have a bit of a breather after completing that.
Speaking of which, I didn’t win Pattern Review’s Wardrobe Contest (Nor was I expecting to. Haha. Expecting. See what I did there?) but am so glad I joined in: 8 more pieces of clothing to my tiny maternity wardrobe is quite the boost, and I’ve been wearing almost all of them regularly! Also, my buddy, the lovely sewing Energizer Bunny Nakisha, got second place! Woohoo! Awesomesauce.
Anywho, eyes on the prize. I finally finished my little guy’s quilt, and on the day of my baby shower!
