Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

I Slept So Good!

I have a new quilt on my bed!

My kids can’t figure out how their friends can sleep without a quilt on their beds.  They do feel so nice!

I love scalloped borders.  It takes a little more time, but it’s well worth it!

I started out with a total different idea when making this quilt, so I don’t have a pattern.  The fabric is Sweet by Urban Chicks for Moda.

This quilt makes me think spring….even though we just got another 10 inches of snow.

Gotta go!  There are ladies here ready to quilt.

Miles and Miles of Thread

This is where I spend a lot of my day yesterday.  I started quilting this last week, and I was determined to finish it!

I haven’t quilted anything since before Christmas, so what do I start on?  A king size quilt thats 116 inches square. I finished it at about 11 PM.  Dreamboy was ready to kick me out, because the longarm is in his bedroom.  (Actually, his bed is in my longarm room.  I was there first.)  I took the quilt upstairs and laid it out to look at it.  Then I just kind of shoved it out of the way and went to bed.

Here’s where the kids found Georgie this morning.

My project for today is to get the binding on it.  The hand stitching is going to take a while.  I’m thinking I’m going to scallop the borders.

I’ve been finding some stuff while digging through my sewing room that will offer further proof that I’m crazy.  More on that later!

I need to dig through a bunch of unfinished knitting projects too.  I’ll bet I can find some things I want to finish and maybe a few to frog.

I also found out that quilting and cleaning don’t go together.  My house is a mess.  I suppose I should do something about that today as well!

Time to get moving….maybe!  I should knit just a few rows first.  My knitting has been neglected this week!
