Finally

I've actually been doing some sewing! The last thing I made that was quilty was back in May 2015. So ten months later I finally got back to my sewing. I didn't have much of a choice...I had promised a friend of mine that I'd make a t-shirt quilt for her daughter's graduation. That's the end of May. So this week I got busy and got the top all put together. Now it's on its way to Joanne so she can work her magic on it.


There's going to be a new baby in the family, so I bought this minky fabric to make a blanket out of. Aren't those hippos cute?


And then I bought this hippo fabric to make a quilt out of. I found the green fabric the other day and it's perfect with the hippos. I bought extra so there may be some other baby accessories made to match the quilt.


That's about it for now. I did celebrate my birthday this week. And I got a new job that I start on Monday. So all in all, life is good! :0)
