I’ve gotten alot of quilty stuff done this weekend…NOT!
Friday evening, Co Def #1 had a friend over for a few hours (I hate and despise the term ‘playdate’), then it was out to dinner for us. I managed to sneak in a little quiet time at the bookstore Friday evening, knowing what was in store for me come Saturday afternoon.
The Boys went to a Houston car-show Saturday morning, leaving myself and Co Def #2 all by our lonesomes…somehow we managed just fine in spite of not being pestered by the Testosterone Twins all day. I picked up a pair of flannel pajamas for her…you know, it gets SO cold here in Texas during the artic winter months (cue the eyeball roll)
I thought the sewing motif was pretty cute…the dolls themselves, yes, Lalaloopsy dolls, are tacky as all get-out. But that’s just me. I guess I should be happy they’re not American Girl dolls, huh?
Co Def #2’s friend came over Saturday afternoon and it was non-stop inside/outside/movie time/where’s the popcorn/coloring/crafting/dressing the dog up…bless her patient heart and generally driving me up the freakin’ wall time until about four o’clock. Give me a houseful of boys any day! At least they can entertain themselves. Not girls, though. Nuh-uh, one must have all manner of things to do so as to avoid catfights and assorted sulking.
So, this is what I managed to eek out in the sewing department…
The Popsicle top is completed and I finally got all that paper peeled off the back. You know, that’s the ONLY bad thing about paper-piecing. Sure, all your points match and everything goes together wonderfully well, but you still have to pull off all that stinkin’ paper! Anyway, this one’s ready for quilting. I also got half of the plethora of HST sewn into rows…it’s amazing how fast they go together when you put the pedal to the metal. I missed my calling…I should’ve been a racecar driver.
