quilting and snuggling





Gosh, how is that for a choice? Play on the long arm or snuggle the baby???


As long as the baby will have it I chose my little Maggie. sigh, bliss!



See this bright quilt? Vanessa is getting a new bed. Obviously a new quilt is in order- She chose a full size bed, so a full size quilt would be the best right? Well, we started out with some swap blocks, she wanted white sashing, and white borders to really set them off, and by the time I finished adding all that it seems to have morphed into just about a king size quilt. It measures out at 106 X 95. What the heck was I thinking???? I suppose she can always fold it in half and have double the warmth? Yikes, it is a bit easy to get carried away isn't it?


Speaking of getting carried away, I need to go trim quilt number 3 that I just finished the quilting on!! yeah!!! there will be show and tell later. Or if sweetie pie falls asleep you know I'll be doing something else..............

How did/do you get anything done?? Sweetie Pie is just gorgeous -- I'd never put her down...even when she sleeps. :)
Vanessa's quilt is beautiful. I can't wait for show and tell.

I cant believe how much fun I had while you were quilting! My view was extraordinary! The tape got a bit uncomfortable a few times, but other than that it was wonderful. Thanks so much for taking me with you.....

She is gorgeous!
I just had a "baby snuggling" weekend too - sure miss those days with little babies, but not the nights!!

Sweet baby! Looks like you are getting a lot done in both the snuggling and the quilting department!

Hey Mare, what a cutie pie! I'm just green with envy! It wouldn't be a hard choice between quilting and snuggling...LOL
The quilt is looking good, big, but good! Just a bit carried away you say??? Hugs, Finn
