|Baby Girl Quilt|
I spent a good part of the afternoon sewing the baby girl quilt. The borders have been attached, the batting and backing are in place, and I've machine quilted "in the ditch" between the horizontal rows. I didn't sew between the vertical columns because one, I got tired and I tend to make more mistakes when I am tired. The borders have been taken to the back and pinned in place - I will sew them down by hand, next week.
It is a very soft, pastel colored quilt, but, I am pleased with how it turned out. The quilt is backed with the elephants in circles fabric (cotton flannel).
In the evening, I wrapped up the baby boy quilt and made a card to go with it. I also looked up directions to drive to the church and the venue where the reception will be held, afterwards. I am hoping I will be able to get a ride with cousin P and her daughter, but, if they are unable to take me, then, I will drive myself.
Today, I called and reminded family and friends about next Saturday's prayer gathering.
Lunch was rice with lentils and mackerel curry. For dinner, I cooked steak and broccoli.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A working sewing machine
- Electricity to run the sewing machine
- Being able to play with fabric
- A warm, sunny day
- Video chatting with my daughter
Today's joyful activity was sewing the quilt.
Plans for tomorrow include attending my cousin's grandson's Christening and reception, afterwards.
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?
