This weekend I had a wonderful time creating. I made this very simple fall table runner in a jiffy to get my quilting fix in…the rug continues to grow…and the baby vest I started just needs a few wooden buttons to finish it up.
I’m thinking this will be a gift for someone. It uses what quilters call a Charm Pack, which is simply a pack of pre-cut squares from an entire line of fabric. If you are new to quilting it is a great beginner project.
Tony decided to put up the crib on Saturday morning. It is fun to have it up and begin dreaming about the look of the room. I think it will be rather eclectic with lots of homemade touches. The rug will soon have another color change. It feels fab on the feet!!
Saturday morning I also ran to the knitting shop quick. (Seems like I always need exactly what I don’t have when it comes to knitting!) I started this darling baby vest, and like I said yesterday, could not stop. I need to pick up some wooden buttons for the side and shoulder and then it will be complete. Easy pattern for this self taught knitter and I am so grateful for the fact that you don’t have to put it over babies head to get it on. You can find the free pattern here.
