another late night

 Before I forget, the word game site is and this is the word in a word that I like. They give you three minutes, which I don't care for.  But you can write the word on a piece of paper and take your time.

Tonight I have been sewing.  Emma needs her quilt by Feb 19, which is her baby naming.  The 18th is a Friday and is her first birthday (as well as Marty's). So, quilt.  I had made a string quilt forJordan - Jessica's friend Randy's first baby. She has always said it was the best gift she got.
Here are Jordan and his little brother on the quilt. They are too gorgeous!  I have one block left -- do I make more and give Emma a similar quilt? Jessica thinks it is a beautiful quilt. Dunno.

 On the one hand, I have strips up the wazoo that I could easily sew together and make something really cool.  On the other hand, I have multitudinous (is there such a word??) experimental things and leftovers sitting around.  I'll think about it over the weekend.

Or maybe I won't think at all, but just keep sewing and see what happens.  This seems like a better alternative.

Just keep sewing and follow your muse.

I feel your pain! I have been documenting my quilting saga this week in trying to get the family xmas quilt done. You would think I would learn that xmas comes every year at the same time so there is no suprises here, but yet I stuggle to get the quilt done every year! Maybe next year I will make a vow to get it done by August - we'll see. I think I would use up the strips that are already cut. I know whatever you do it will be wonderful!

Whatever you make I'm sure Emma will adore it because it will be from Nanny and made with love!
