Lizzy has pajama day at school tomorrow and to stop her from taking the boy cars blanket that she is so attached to, I'm going to entice her with a girly quilt. So this is what I did yesterday while butterscotch looked on. The pillow is now stuffed and the binding is half way sewed on. This is the fasted I've ever put together a quilt.
I also started a scrap quilt, that I've titled "How small is too small?"
I actually got alot done yesterday considering that I'm sick and I had 2 sick kiddos.
Lots of Popsicles at my house!
Tip: The best thing for a sore throat: chips or fries, and soda. Just try it. The carbon really gets your throat wet, and the salty and crunchy chips/fries scraps the "Yuck" of your throat.

Friday Night Sew In
I had so much planned but Friday was a day from hell for me. First I locked my keys in the car and then my bank denied my check at Walmart because they wanted me to verify my account. Now its embarrassing when this sort of thing happens, but its horrible when you have the money. I still don't understand why they didn't just call or send a letter or something, freezing my account seems a little extreme. With all this I didn't get to sewing until 10:30pm.
Here's what I did:
I even had vintage thread.
And here it is. Beautiful, right? I found this quilt at a thrift store for $5. I was truly happy. I also cut circles, tutorial coming soon.

Yay I finally finished another quilt. (Which I haven't done in 6 months) It measures 28 1/2in. by 28 1/2 in. It's such a bright quilt but the picture didn't pick up on it because of our lack of sun these days:(
