I got around to going to Walmart and getting some orange paint so that I could finish my nephew's t-shirt. I needed orange for the beak and feet. And no, I did not have any red paint either so I couldn't make my own orange! In case you can't figure it out, my niece LOVES Pink!
I also got Nine's b-day quilt loaded onto the quilting machine, but I am still trying to decide how to quilt it. I got my last order from Huckleberry Quilts for Aurifil thread. They have decided to no longer carry it and are having a huge clearance sale. Their prices were amazing to start with and now are to good to be true. Check out the website for more information.
My mom has pieced another baby quilt for another cousin who is having their first baby. I took her the fabric in April. She has the top pieced and has passed it back to me for the quilting. I think the baby is due in June so I'd better get a move on it! I also need to start the quilt for my BIL and SIL - whose baby is due in August. I have a whole pile of things to make them - the baby quilt, a hooded towel, and a flannel two-sided blankie. I found some flannel at Jo-Ann's that has the old-fashioned Pooh Bears floating around with a bunch a balloons. The pictures and colors are soft - not the bright primary colors. I bought a pale yellow for the back.
Last weekend I pulled out some blocks I had been working on and threw them together to see how big it would end up. It made the perfect size for a certain 1 year old baby boy that I know, but I won't mention names, in case he is reading this over his mama's shoulder. (I have VERY bright nieces and nephews.)
Speaking of my niece and nephews, me and my sister have some very unusual things in common. I have one niece (my sister's DD) and the 4 nephews. My sister has one nephew (my DS) and 4 nieces. Hhmmm! We also both married men that go by their middle names. We also both have the same mother and father. Coincidence? I think not!
OK, it is obviously time for bed! Hope everyone has a great weekend.
