Dave's isn't the only July baby in my circle.
crazy lady celebrates hers a few days before Dave. And when you get to our age, and have known each other for eleventy-billion years (okay, 25...), finding the perfect present can get a little tough. But while I was racking my brain last month, Mom happened to hop on Ravelry post a picture of some quilted place mats she was thinking of making. Sam noticed and mentioned how much she liked them.... and the seed of an idea was planted. The pattern was something easy enough that even I couldn't mess it up too badly. So I went stash diving.
Now my quilting stash isn't very big. Mostly leftovers from the Kitten Kaboodles I have made and the odd fat quarter I've bought on a whim. With money tight, I was really hoping I'd have enough of something that looked relatively decent together, without having to hit up the fabric store.
Of course, this small success has me thinking about doing some more quilting... I do have those fat quarters Mom gave me for my birthday....
