Two things I am juggling this past week. Some baby quilts to stash away for emergency baby shower gifts and the February instructions for my Garden Party Down Under Block of the month project.
I have two daughters that live within 15 or 20 minutes of me. We are long ago past the new grand baby stages, but they often are invited to baby showers and ask if I have a spare baby quilt hanging around. Well, yes I do. I keep a stash of them all ready to give them. They hit me up with three just before January so my supply was getting pretty low. This past week I got busy and turned out two. Just need those bindings hand sewn down and we are back in business. I am back at my Garden Party Down Under with February's instructons given out on the 1st. I have run into a little issue with the extension of the vines into the half square triangles. The directions said mirror image of the two vine and leaf sides, which I seem to have misunderstood. The top vine section was suppose to be the same curve as the lower one. Now I could scrap the entire border and also the second one I have almost done and start over, or figure out some different design to join it to those half square. The appliqué is all done on this finished border and part on the second. I'm voting for figuring out a new design to join them.Zoey our little 11 month old Yorkshire Terrier has found herself the perfect afternoon nap place. Not a care in the world. I was tempted to join her after discovering my mishap on my BOM. Sometimes a dogs life is just the right place to be.
