It's a girl!


I was going to do the whole post in pink in honor of my favorite cousins new little baby girl but it's too hard to read!

She arrived on Oct 11, all healthy and red hair and dimples. Not that I get to see first hand, sigh. But mommy called to let me know. I soooo wish that Wisconsin and Colorado were next to each other~ With apologies to anyone living in the states between us, I would like to get rid of those areas so that we could be closer.
Now I need to know what is seriously wrong with me - (Flori and Leigh, you be quiet!) I did not get her baby quilt done yet! As you can see from the picture it's not even cut out yet! I have never been this slow before! I have excuses, but really that is all they are. I mean so what there were colorguard flags and band uniforms and purses for the shop- there are always things like that! And it's not like I am not excited about this little cutie pie, because I REALLY REALLY am! She is even partly named for me!
I wonder if I was afraid to cut into the fabrics. Maybe it was fear of cutting?
Well, tomorrow I am going to whip out that rotary cutter and get my buns moving!~ That is just all there is to it!

Take it out of the pretty folder/stand and rumple it up, let the cat sit on it, drop it on the floor, and maybe THEN it won't look quite so ... so .... artistic, just sitting there, looking lovely!

Congrats on the new little girl!

Well, it seems to me that you have a "quilt block". This is a scientifically proven phenomenon and can be cured by taking the following simple steps:

1. Drink TWO strong cups of coffee. Preferable from a cup with a flamingo on it.

2. Eat a cookie while opening up all the fabric you intend to use to make this quilt.

3. Turn on the iron while you grab some cheese and crackers to snack on between cuts...

All that being said, I am sure that now you understand the steps necessary to pull yourself out of this stagnation. The cure is quite simply proper snack implementation. Let me know if you need more suggestions. I have a plethora of snack ideas that have gotten me out of several serious situations.

Congratulations on the new baby girl cousin! With the cold winter not far away, that new baby could sure use a cute and cuddly baby quilt! Hope you get busy on it soon. :-)
