So, I am jumping on this Bloglovin bandwagon...we'll see how it goes. I'm always up for something new. I have a hard time with Google Reader sometimes, going back and forth in and out of my blog...maybe I'm just lame at it. Who knows. This even has a cool app for your phone, so when you are stuck somewhere, waiting to pick up kids from school, you can browse through your blogs for a little 'me-time'! That's what I like to do anyway. Haha! Add me though if you are on this Bloglovin train! :) Let's be friends!!
I do love technology tho. ;) So I will leave you with this....
This is not a quilty post. This is a random ranting post.
I watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers the other night. The one from 1978 with Donald Sutherland and the crazy mayor lady from Witches of Eastwick. OMG...HOW is it that I have NEVER seen this movie before?? It needs to be in my alien, horror cult classic collection. NOW! So awesome. And I was shrieking at the end. ♥'d it.
It's snowing...again. I'm uber sick of the snow. Isn't it supposed to be spring?
Mimi the pug sheds like it's going out of style...like it's 'cool' to shed. I have tried the 'Furminator' from Petsmart. It does a good job, but I'd have to brush her like 3 times a day...then she still sheds. I tried getting a t-shirt to put on her to contain the hair. She refused to move. And pouted. And still shed.
Here she is...not moving.
So, I am going to try some vitamins. Sigh - we'll see if that works. Otherwise, I will just have to continue to send the kids to school, covered in hair and vacuum everyday for the rest of forever. She's still cute and I ♥ her. Furball and all. If you have any advice or tips, please share!!
I have a couple quilts going now..waiting for the backing to come via mail, and I need to audition some backing fabric for the other...oh yah-and I'm starting a triangle quilt that I'm super excited about. Hint: MINT GREEN! EEEK!
A friend of ours is having a baby this week. I had wanted to make them a quilt, then forgot about the due date.
Robot Husband so graciously informed me, I had 7 days to make a quilt.
I found a super cute pattern here, to make a car seat quilt.
How often do those cute little bundles of joy, kick their quilts or blankies off their car seats or strollers?
See the little ties?
Tie it on to the car seat handles or stroller and, voila!
I quilted this with free motion stippling on the outer border, then did circle loops in the white middle border.
I am by no means a mathematician. I was having heart palpitations the entire time in the middle, wondering if I was going to run into the other row, or over a row etc. Sigh....amazingly, I didn't and it turned out.
I don't ever really plan ahead my quilting. I just sort of go for it.
One of these days that is going to bite me. Hard.
Luckily for this baby, it didn't. :)
I had some highly cherished Sophie fabric in my stash, which I used for the middle. Oh, how I love that Sophie line.
Why do they have to stop making lines? I want it back! NOW!
I took this quilt with me to my local quilt shop, looking for matching fabric for the back, the border and the binding.
Apparently the quilt shop owners feel the same way about the Sophie line as I do. :)
