so, yeah…

17 May

remember that quilt i started in january? it was a lap quilt. a quick project. heh.

well, i guess it could have been quick if i had actually put forth an effort, which, clearly, i did not, because, looking at my calendar, i see that it is now may (you do the math). i’ve been in a weird uninspired funk and i haven’t felt like sewing, crafting, reading, (ahem) blogging, etc., but today i woke up and thought, “i’ll finish it today! i will!” and what do you know? i did.

sewing maps

i love the backs of quilts, if done neatly and correctly. it’s almost like a fabric map of city streets, lines intersecting and running parallel and hiding something unknown and interesting underneath the surface.

the lap size quilt is actually pretty big. it would be great to take on a picnic, assuming i did such things. or it would be perfect for a baby, assuming i had such things. now i just have to do the actual quilting bit, which i’ve never done. i know someone, though. i’ll let you know in another few months…

    Aaaaand off to AA I go…

    that would tie things up nicely – a picnic and a baby! and the wine? don’t you know it’s an adult juice box? that’s what you bring to a picnic, so it’s clearly acceptable. we could introduce e to authentic al fresco dining…
