Dave calls them my hobo blankets. These quilts have been everywhere, sleepovers, picnics, the beach, camping. They've been through three boyfriends, four moves, and 10 cats. I love them and I will never get rid of them, but Dave needs something a little less .... well-loved ... to sleep with. So, I'm going to make him his very own quilt. I got it all cut out today. (Thanks to mom who has all the tools)
And yes, I said I'm making Dave his very own quilt, and no they aren't very masculine fabrics... too bad. It's going in my bedroom, I want it to match my decor... if he wants to share my bed, he'll deal with it. (on another note these aren't actually the fabrics I left at mom's, after checking out her fabric stash - which is almost as impressive as her yarn stash - she let me swap the fabrics I had bought for some that she had bought... the pink and green fabrics were mine, but the rest were hers)
I got it all laid out... I love this pattern. Super easy and can be sewn in an afternoon. I've done three quilts (all for Sam's kids) with this pattern. It's the only pattern I've ever sewn, but I don't care. I like it. No muss, no fuss. Quilt-in-a-day.
I'll probably sew it this weekend while Dave is songwriting. Right now my machine is buried under a mountain of stuff I shoved in my studio while cleaning the rest of the house. I'll need to get some border and backing fabric, but this is a start.
Of course, as I was laying the last corner out, Tux decided it was time to get a little exercise and chased Rocky right across it. I had to start all over again.People ask me why I don't want kids... believe me, three cats are more than enough trouble, I don't need to add kids to the mix
They don't look very repentent either
Anyway, off to knit now, want to make a trip to Vineyard Alpacas at the end of the month, and I need some product for her.
