I take it all back

I know I said in yesterday's post that I haven't been doing much of anything lately, but it turns out, that's not actually true! Besides keeping the house in (somewhat) order and the laundry done (not as easy, when I'm soooo pregnant), I've managed to do a few creative things after all. Although my nose is nightmarishly (is that a word?) stuffed up today, lying around just makes it worse, so I got up and sewed together my quilt center. I think it's absolutely beautiful. There's still a pieced border to add, as well as an outer border, so much to Casey's delight, it will be quite a bit bigger than the two quilts I've made before. I really think it's pretty, so I couldn't wait to share.

Also, I've been wanting to try some embroidery for awhile now ('cause I need another hobby, right???) and I've been meaning to make quilt labels for my quilts before the years get totally away from me and so I decided to tackle the Wonky House label for my first project. Yes, it's crooked, no, I didn't measure, but I like it anyway :) I'll be making one for my Quirky Boxes quilt next. It's a fun thing to do while sitting around watching TV in the evenings. I bought this book and just love it! Anyone have any sources for free embroidery patterns on the internet??? Please share!


  1. pretty quilt top! I can't imagine maneuvering around while pregnant, let alone making a quilt!

  2. i agree with do you do it? the quilt is wonderful! i always dread making labels...i have lousy handwriting so maybe embroidery would be the way to go. yours is cute.
