Can I push the deadline any more?
Okay! I have finished the binding on the quilt below in the "Unconventional Baby Quilt" posting, just need to trim those pesky threads...(in my 'marvelous' machine quilting stitches- I'm really not great at it, but I'm just 'doing it' anyway!!). I suppose I should wash it, since it's going to a 'baby' and it would be nice to make sure the quilt won't fall apart with the first washing.
In the meantime, my grandson, Kai, walked over to me on the couch and 'snagged' it to wrap around him to watch "Frosty the Snowman"...
He's my critic. My official critic. He just LOVES to snuggle with my 'flimsies' (tops done but not quilted). I guess it passed inspection. It's 'snuggle-able'.
I love you too, Kai
...............Maybe I'll make a 'pillowcase' to hold the quilt, instead of wrapping it in 'shower' paper (which I would have to get to a store to purchase on the day of the shower- bad idea) , then tie is with ribbons (which I have in the house). Okay, I have to take care of that now....later (did I tell you the shower is in less than 4 hours???? Yikes!)
