Happy Labor Day! I am very much enjoying a job that has paid holidays, and wishing my husband could share this benefit with me. I am also very thankful for a mother-in-law who took my children to the park and to lunch toda! With that break I did a little laboring of my own:
Here I am piecing my first quilt (this is from a few days ago). I set a self-imposed deadline of today to finish this little quilt for my baby girl. I am proud to say I made it! Onward with the Christmas crafting! (If only I were kidding...This year will involve more woodworking.)
Most of the fabric is Heather Ross' Crafty Chloe line from Hancock Fabrics. The rest is from bed sheets that are no longer serviceable. I used our old cloth diapers for the batting, and let me tell you, those diapers are dense! You see, I am trying to keep myself on a strict budget. The more things I use that I already own the better. Repeat after me thrifty =crafty. I don't think I'll be making anymore quilts in the near future. But for now, both my little ones have their very own quilt made just for them by family.
