A while back, I snapped a few detail pics in Vanny's room.
I'm eagerly anticipating visits with my new bestie, Evangeline.
Jess is crafting, sewing and preparing a wonderful little "nest" for baby Evangeline Handy!
We both agree that it's much more fun to craft for somebody...namely Vanny!
Yesterday, I purchased a sewing machine for my birthday! Jess helped me unpack and gave me the abridged version of how-to-sew-for-the first-time-since-making-heart-shaped-pillows-in-jr high so I could start sewing right away, instead of
reading every word of the instruction booklet for 3 hours before ever turning on the machine educating myself via the Brother Sewing Machine Instruction Manual. For such times, I'm thankful to have an experienced sewing machine operator as a friend. What does a beginner pick for their first project, you ask? A cozy quilt for Evangeline!
Dear Jess, thanks for arranging, encouraging, pinning, baking cookies, staying up too late, ironing seams, providing band-aids and talking me down from advanced quilts on my first attempt so we have a chance to finish this century. Dear 7x7 block quilt, we're dominating you!
