So this is the piece work I did, but I soon realized that I wouldn't be able to finish my project on my own. The last time I quilted, I just ran that sucker through my sewing machine and it turned into this mess of threads and knots. I did figure out why, after the fact of course. I didn't have a walking foot for my sewing machine. A what?
It looks like a medieval torture device. The added dilemma seems that you can't readily buy one in town, you have to order online, and being as I was in a time crunch and had no idea how to judge which of the many models to buy I cheated. I called Mamaw up for a favor. My mamaw is a Sewing With Nancy fanatic, not to mention she has every fancy sewing, embroidery, and serger machine you can have. I sent my little project down to Mamaw's to have her finish and voila! A blanket was born!
Special One Leidner, I hope you are into black lights because that was my inspiration for your blanket. Now hurry up and say hi already!

Presentation was a little lacking, and it was soupy as all get out, but it tasted so good! And we got dinner wrapped up and put away in time to hit up the free movie screening of The Princess Bride in the park. I love that movie!
The night was clammy, the benches were really uncomfortable, and after that lasagna I might have made Wayne lactose intolerance. Still, it was a great night! Have I mentioned I love this movie?

Among getting married, turning thirty, and inheriting a dog, a lot of things have changed since last I posted. I've also cut my hair.
No false promises this time, I'm not even going to fake you guys out like that, but I am going to try and be better. To make up for lost time I'm going to revisit the past year. Why not, right? It's better than the facebook. I kid, but not really.

So I'm back on the baby blanket makin' wagon and this time it's a knitted lace blanket. It was a fairly simple pattern to follow but the biggest issue was my hands kept cramping, gross.
My grandma hooked me up with some very pretty, very soft and most importantly FREE yarn but I found out about halfway through that the little bundle to be is a girl. Whoops! It's a pretty blue, so I'm not sweating it too much.
I'm gonna take a short break from baby things but I've got a quilt in my mind I'm itching to start on.
Ps, so I'm cat sitting for my mom and I start watching TLC A Baby Story and I'm seriously get choked up every other story. Wtf! Hormones are a dumb, I'm gonna drink a beer to balance it out.

My next attempt was with quilting. My first practice blanket turned into a pillow after the seams went from parallel to intercepting. Don't ask, I'm not sure how I managed that myself. Around this time my coworker announced that he and his wife were expecting so, of course, I had to put my skills to the test! I bought squares and arranged patterns, re-arranged patterns, started sewing...and then put it down for months. I still have not finished that blanket but luckily I had a spare that I had made that worked out beautifully. Enjoy Eveline, the sweetest baby who NEVER cries.
