On the Line....

It 's Saturday.  We've had a cool front come through -- a high of 73 degrees scheduled for today. 

It was a day at home...playing with the pups, vacuuming, dusting... all those things we would like to pretend happen magically.  If I'm going to do them I definitely want credit. 

The fun thing I did was cut out quilt blocks from the fabric above.  I usually talk to my mom and my mother-in-law on the drive into work.  I told my MIL that I planned on cutting these blocks out for a baby quilt this weekend.  

Her response:
"Man, you  folks have a lot of babies..."

Truth be told... these are the same blocks I have been planning on cutting out for a couple of months.  Things get in the way.  Summers being short -- quilting takes 'the back seat'.  I just couldn't spit out the words that I just haven't gotten around to it and this is the same project I keep dreaming out in office meetings, those church bulletins when I should be paying attention, and there's even that walmart receipt with  a doodle while I was waiting for a train one day.  

Life is busy.  Summers short.  But I think this is going to be a great Baby Quilt.

Yes, that is really lovely fabric. Once you cut out the pieces you won't be able to stop. It will make for a sweet baby quilt.

Pretty fabrics for a baby quilt. I know no one having a baby nor have not known anyone having a baby for a long time. So no baby quilt making here.

Those are gorgeous fabrics for a baby quilt. It will be nice to see the quilt when it's done.
We had a cool down here too and I've spent the whole day on the deck...haven't done that in a while. Felt so good to just do nothing :)

Great colors for a baby quilt! It's still too hot here to sew; I'm cross stitching. There just isn't enough time for everything, is there?!
