Friday Fo/No

Good Friday Morning!!! It’s been a glorious week full of Squish and even some quilting and sewing! So, what did I get done?

Sleeping baby was one of my biggest accomplishments. LOL

Excuse my “readers” condition, I only wear them around the house, not out. LOL

Once Squish went home I went up to the studio to work on my projects. I got half the appliqué top quilted, got through more than half of my blocks for next week’s 2022 RR, and last night I got a request from ScientistGirl. She’s leaving on a week long trip with the Navy for her job. We don’t know where she’s going, it’s top secret, and she’s limited on what she can take. So, she needed something she can hang from a lanyard to store her ID, driver’s license, credit cards, money. I got to work and came up with this little pouch.

There’s a clear side for her ID and a cloth side to disguise items. Nothing fancy, but I could kick myself for not matching the stripes on the clear side. Oy! And, I got it a little snug, the cards need wiggling to get in and out. But it’ll do for a week.

OK, now the big show! One of those days of quilting allowed me to get a runner done, which will now become a crib rug.

This is where the project began:

I took a class on piecing curves and learned an easy way to do them. Love them!

I got the top and back done and then it waited for quilting, the story of my life!

I plotted out markings to do point to point quilting and then used different fillers to “fill” in the areas created. What fun!!!

Click on each circle to see a larger version, ignore the wobbles.
In between all the circles I did some echoing.

And now, it’s done and will lay on the floor in front of Squish’s crib.

That’s my week, and today will look a lot like the previous 4 days.
Squish and Sewing!!! Yay!

A knitter, sewist, quilter, mom, wife, doodle lover, and now a G (grandma)!, but not necessarily in that order. Just ask my family, they'll tell you who comes first. Psst, it used to be the doodles, now it's Squish!!!

  1. Great job on the curved piecing and pieced back – and the quilting is awesome! Squish is such a cutie. I remember those days of accomplishment when I kept my grands – especially with the twins! But such sweet and precious memories. I like the card holder you made for your daughter. Please pass along my thanks for her service to our country!

  2. You are so blessed to have that sweet baby around so frequently. Lucky grandma – and lucky baby to have you taking care of her.

    1. Amen! Although when I get up at 5:30 to go get her, I am not feeling especially blessed, our recent temps have been in the singles and teens! But then when I get home and get her out of the car seat, bliss!!! > >

  3. Hi Chris! Ahhh. Nothing better than holding a sleeping baby, is there?!! You did an outstanding job quilting your curved piece. Nice, nice, super nice job. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you. Give that sweet little head a few extra kisses for me! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Aw, thank you Laura, I am trying to let go of my issues about my appearance. I realize Squish isn’t going to have any photos with me if I don’t give myself grace and stop focusing on my lack of cultural beauty. Now Diva wants a pillow for the rocker in the nursery, so back to my scraps from the fabric line to see if I can eke out a pillow! > >

Cat got your tongue?
