Quilt For Skylar
Posted by thedarwinexception on May 24, 2008
Well, I finished another project today – had to show you all a picture of it. I really like it. No, it’s not even a knitting project (surprise). It’s a sewing project – if the prom gown did nothing for me, it at least got me in the mood to sew again.
So I have that stupid baby shower next weekend – I think it’s next weekend. Sometime soon, anyway, so I decided to make a quilt for the baby. Katie knows it’s a boy (which she says she is going to name Skylar – which I think is a girl’s name, but whatever….) so I made a baby boy quilt, with 4 inch baby boy motif squares like dinosaurs and Harley’s (huh – who knew I had Harley material, right?), Mickey Mouse (leftover from Val’s boppy pillow), Nemo, bugs, Winne the Pooh, etc. The 4 inch motif squares are surrounded with smaller checkerboard squares in orange and blue. Then I did an orange sash and a blue sash on the outside, and did the back in an off white fleece.
The middle of the quilt to see the squares –
Cute, huh? I really like it and I like how it came out and how really easy it was to do. I’m cutting out squares now for a girl one for Val’s baby. So I really hope Val likes the quilt!
So, the new guy across the street moved in. Yeah, they sold the house. My old lady hadn’t even been dead a week, and her “family” had the house sold. That has to be some kind of record. New guy seems OK – but he’s kind of weird – he was mowing the yard today and before he turned the mower on he was outside reading the manual for the lawn mower. I guess it was new. Amused Paul, anyway.
So are we all glad that David Cook won Idol? I was glad. I really liked him. Although I felt bad for David Archuletta for coming in second. I’m betting his dad beat his ass for that. (Come on, you KNOW his dad beat his ass for that.)
But, nothing else going on for this holiday weekend. I’ll probably finish up the one more sweater I’m making for the shower – a little bear cub cardigan with ears on the hood of the sweater and bear buttons., then finish the girls quilt and maybe make some sleepers for the shower, if I feel like it. What are you guys doing? Anything special for the holiday?
