Man, does it feel good to be home!
It was really nice visiting my family for 2 weeks. I had a great time and it felt like it went too fast, but being home feels amazing! It was really cool that my sister let me use her sewing machine so I could continue my participation in the Project Run and Play, but it really made me remember how much I friggen LOVE my own sewing machine!
I really wanted to just play with it when I got home, but I had SO much stuff to do with unpacking, laundry, cleaning, and taking care of the kiddos. And of course when Quinn was napping, I found a time where I could maybe do a little something.. Wouldn’t you know it, as SOON as I sat down in my chair that little bugger woke up! It is like there are bells on that thing for him!
Anyways, much later today I found a few minutes where I decided I might want to try to do some quilting.. I’ve been thinking a lot lately of trying a new quilt and just need to DO it. So I decided to make a log cabin block. I think that is what I did, anyway! Quilting is still totally new to me and I just sort of guessed at what you are supposed to do for it.. I used up some scraps and cut them in 2 inch strips with differing lengths and just sewed, piecing them around together, squaring them up.. Of course Millie joined in right away and sat on my lap while I cut and sewed and she picked out the fabrics for me to use.
It was so sweet, she felt totally a part of the process and was totally proud when I finished the little block :) I wanted to take pics and she insisted that she hold it while I did so, lol. I have no idea what I will make out of it, I really just wanted to use my sewing machine after 2 whole weeks without it. I am really attached to the thing, apparently. That or I am a crazy nerd.
Is this even a log cabin? I’m not sure but I like it:) Maybe I’ll make more blocks like this and make a baby quilt or something.. There are a couple pregnant ladies I know :)
