It’s been a long weird couple of weeks. We had some family emergencies that took up some time. We are fine and everyone is healthy. It’s family drama I would rather not discuss publicly. Rest assured all is good at our house.
Plus, I had a major project in the works. The project could not be shared on social media because the recipient follows me. It’s been nice to take some time off and focus on stuff.
Today was the shower and now I can finally share. Did you know I’m awful at keeping secrets? This has been torture. So here it is.
Remember my scrap pack post for December? This is what I had in mind. The baby is a boy but I didn’t want something overly boy, more neutral.
The back is perfect for my amazing friend. Cotton & Steel Mustangs, the rest is all scraps from my stash. That cheetah is from Melissa’s quilt. Bri LOVED the cheetah addition.
She is so dynamic and has varied interests. She loves gardening, horses, writes wonderful poetry, and LOVES professional wrestling. Her twitter feed blows up every Monday night while RAW is on. Her tweets make for great entertainment for my Mondays. Her shower was BABYMANIA and had this awesome cake.
I would say she is pretty happy with her new quilt.
The quilting is a little different for me. It’s just squares and rectangles. I tried circles in a free motion layout and that went to shit. After ripping out many stitches I went to something different but not challenging. My blue chalk from marking the circles decided it didn’t want to wash off the first time. I grabbed some Shout and coated those lines and they came right out. The quilt also got a sun bath for good measure.
This quilt makes me smile since it’s all scraps. The top, batting, backing, and binding are all scraps. They work so well together.
Can’t wait for Pdawg to have a new friend and explore the world with. Bri will be an amazing mother and based on today’s shower, little man will be well dressed and warm.
