The baby quilt is pinned and ready to quilt! I had to make another run to the fabric store - I had mis-remembered how much fabric the backing needed, and didn't have enough. I probably would have had "just enough" but didn't want to fuss that much with it - it would have been 'exactly' wide enough for a small border, and I mean exactly. The stress of the thought of having to be that exact was enough to send me to the store. I can use the extra material later, I'm sure - it is a very nice pink for baby girl things.
Up today on the agenda - laundry, quilting, and a trip to the vet with Jasper - time for some shots - and baking, an apple pie at least. I got the lawn mowed yesterday, and started a list of other yard work to do. I might do some of that today too (not likely, but I might!). I'm taking a few days off next weekend, and that may be the best time for me to tackle some of those projects. I'll be honest - I'm a wimp for yard work in the heat. We are back up in the mid 90's again during the day - too hot to do much yard work for me! I mowed the lawn yesterday after going to the grocery store, and had to blow my hair dry again - it was soaking wet.
I also need to design a bookmark for book club. We read "If I Stay" by Gail Foreman. My plan is to crochet a cello. I have it mapped out - now to see if it works out when I crochet it:
Dawn and I found a couple of storage containers on sale for $12.00 as Walmart yesterday. One fit right here very nicely - now my WIP's can be stored so they don't get dust and cat hair on them.
The other one hasn't found a permanent home yet - I don't really like it here, but it is a place to put it while I think about it awhile.
