A Productive Sunday

This was one of those days when I decided I needed a "me" day. Just to do what I want to do. So, after I fixed breakfast for Jim and Rob (lol, okay, we'll say that's what I wanted to do) I spent a good part of the day finishing up this baby quilt for a friend's new baby.

I did this in the quilt-as-you-go manner but when I put the blocks together, I used a little bit different technique. Well, the same technique as I always used but a bit different in construction. Instead of cutting the front sashings one width and the back another, I cut BOTH front and back sashings two inches wide. When attaching them, I took a half inch seam. Like I told Judy, you can't be married to the quarter inch seam thing when working with these numbers! It really went a lot faster. Oh, I found these particular instructions on sew-whats-new.com.

I also worked on Kerrington's little sundress that I've had started for a while now. I'm doing the hand work around the neck and armholes and will add some froo-froo decorations, I think. I'll take it with me to work on while watching her today.

Judy and I went to see "The Time Traveler's Wife". It was interesting and afforded Judy a few hours in cool comfort since her a/c is on the fritz. She came to our house later and we had leftover tacos and I made a fruit pizza.

Time to get ready to go see Miss K. Have a good Monday.
