I have accomplished a few things recently that I haven’t blogged about, so I thought I would just put some odds and ends together today along with my current WiP.
While this is the last thing I finished recently (umm, this morning), it is the project I am the most giddy about. My niece is going to turn 1 year old on September 18th (holy cow, where did a year go!?!?!), and I am super excited to be flying out to visit with my brother, sister-in-law, and niece for her birthday weekend. I whipped up a sweet little simple drawstring bag using some soft flannel fabric to use as a gift bag for her birthday. I plan to buy a few books for her to put in the bag. Not being a mother/parent, any suggestions for good gifts for a 1 year old or for parents of a 1 year old would be welcome!
I also whipped up a second Cocoa Leaf Mini Quilt on Monday. I will be taking these to my customer on Friday, and I am definitely looking forward to where the queen sized quilt design is going to go!
So that leaves me with what is on my design wall staring at me: the Three Flocks backing. Maybe it is because I cut so many HSTs yesterday, but I am finding it hard to work up the energy to finish putting the backing together. Even though I know these HSTs are all pre-trimmed and just needing to be pieced. I will make some progress on it this week… I hope…
