DH has had a bad cold for the past few days. The only time he ever snores is when he is congested. Last night it was so bad that I finally got up and went and slept with Ian in his twin sized bed. Not much better. I had to sleep on the outside for fear of pushing Ian right off the edge. I should have just slept with Maddie in her double bed, but I was afraid Ian would complain because I had slept with her last time daddy was snoring! This is all to explain why I didn't get much sleep last night and why I felt the need for a nap at 9:30 this morning!
Yesterday I got the baby quilt top all put together and even found a cute blue striped fabric in the stash to use for the backing. That's three yards down - 1000 to go! After my refreshing nap, I got everything loaded onto my quilting machine. Quilting on baby quilts always goes so nice and fast. I just did a simple little meander with little loopy-loops. Very delicate looking.
I was so inspired by getting the baby quilt done that I went in search of a backing for the beautiful quilt top that Susan sent me. I found a huge piece of a green on green print that will do just fine. Kind of a grassy green color. Another 4 yards out of the stash! I got the backing pieced and pinned onto the machine this afternoon. My goal for tomorrow is getting this one quilted.
When I was rearranging my stash a few weeks ago, I cleaned out the cabinets over the washer and dryer. Any piece of fabric over about two yards went up in this cabinet. That way I don't have to dig through the regular stash for a piece big enough to make a backing out of.
Hhhmmm....what to work on next? Maybe, while I am in the mood, I should work on quilting all the tops I have sitting here.
