Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, most of you will remember a while ago I wrote a blog post about a super secret thing I couldn’t show some people who read this blog…well, it’s now ready for the big reveal. So, everyone settle down while I lead Florian and Jacob through all this 😀 (Yes Florian and Jacob, this is deliberately set up so you’re reading this after I’ve gone to sleep. )

In the baby room there is a present that looks like this 😉 (There aren’t any gift tags bc I have no idea what to write on the damn things most of the time)

…Yes, I want you to open it. For those of you who don’t have such a present in the baby room, this is what they’ll see.

Baby quilt!!!!! It’s (still) brighter in person, but that’s probably bc I’m using my phone camera at 7 in the morning 😛

The back shows off the quilting gorgeously!!!!

Most of you will remember that I had to send it off to be quilted. The quilter supplied everything else, including the binding, so all I had to do when it came back to me was hand stitch the binding down at the back (Oh, Jacob and Florian, if it starts unravelling let me know and I’ll fix it 😉 ). I learnt several things while doing that

-hand sewing isn’t as bad as I keep thinking it is

-using a thimble is really fiddly. Not using a thimble is painful. I think I need more practice at hand sewing…

-hand sewing is so slowwwwwwww. Put something fun on tv and just mooch through it. Don’t time yourself, you’ll just get irritated that it isn’t going faster…

-keeping secrets is haaaaaard! There were so many times I nearly sent them pictures of the WIP to exclaim over how pretty the whole thing is. It’s sooo pretty!!!!!!!

-I now want to make All The Quilts. Send help. (Or fabric…)
