Not sure what I'm doing here, I remember thinking. Not sure that I like this fabric ( purely because everyone else did-slap me ). But I cut and I pieced and by the time I came home I had the beginnings of a quilt for..... for what? I wasnt sure.
The boys didnt need another. I didnt want to make something for the baby yet which was still very new and I didnt want to make it and give it away because, to be honest, once those squares were all happily side by side, I completely loved this fabric.
Every Saturday,give or take, we rent a movie for us all to enjoy and make far too much caramel popcorn and something easy for dinner. The boys and I all squish on the sofa snuggled up and husband settles into his big old chair and we enjoy family movie night. We've done this for over a year now and its a lovely family treat. Up until now, the only with a quilt for snuggling was the person in the chair!
But this quilt has languished on my shelf next to the one I started for our bed.
Until I wrote my list that is.
You know those great big scary hairy lists you write before your baby is born? All the things you simply must get done because you cant see them happening if you leave them until after the arrival??
Yep. One of those lists.
