One Stitch at a Time
In one of my industrious stash-busting moods, I decided to use some calico scraps to make a baby quilt. It's turned out to be a rather expensive stash-busting project! Well, not expensive -- but not "free," either, once you count the batting and backing. But I'm enjoying the new experience of quilting. And this is the perfect project to start on because it's small.
So far I'm about half done with the quilting. It's great having something to occupy my hands while watching a movie! My inner perfectionist is slightly frustrated by "learning by doing," but I know it's the only to learn a skill like this. So I'm taking it one stitch at a time, and I figure that any children the Lord may bless me with won't be measuring my stitches.
At least, I hope not!
