These last four days have been great.
I got to spend an evening and a day with a very special boy, my grandson.
The dinosaur pillow was a big hit with my grandson.
It served many purposes, including: jumping, playing game boards, reading, doing puzzles on the iPad, and a “not taking a nap but just resting” pillow.
I also got to spend a day with my friend, Nancy.
I wish I had taken pictures of the Christmas stockings she made for some friends.
We visited Poppy Quilt n’ Sew in Georgetown, Texas.
We both found great fabric for future projects.
Today, I started working on a floor pillow for my granddaughter.
One of the games we play when we are together is “I SPY”.
I found some fabric in my bins that I used to start this pillow.
While I was looking for more fabric for the “I SPY” pillow, I found a fabric panel that had school images and the map of the United States. It was used on my bulletin boards when I was teaching.
My granddaughter is interested in maps, so I started making a pillow top.
I am not happy with my attempt at quilting, stitch in the ditch, so this may end up in the UFO box.
I might just put both of these projects in the UFO box and ask my granddaughter to design a pillow top for me to quilt.
It was good to get back to my sewing machine, but I guess I just was not into anything I made today.
Do you ever have days like this?
