Lots and lots of cutting for the little quilt. Some of the pieces are teensy and getting the paper off the back of the fused fabric is a challenge. Then when you get it off, it is full of static electricity and wants to stick to your fingers so it makes that step take about twice as long. It's getting very close to being all cut out - I have arranged and rearranged a lot and made changes here and there. I think it takes more time designing one yourself than using a pattern mainly because sometimes what I think is going to look good, doesn't. I truly am enjoying working on this for the little one. And her birth is imminent - probably in the next couple of days. I am thinking of Norah and her entire family so much. It will be good when the little girl is in her mommy and daddy's arms.
This is the last pair of hot pads that I made - they are for one of my favorite people who loves sock monkeys. She wasn't with us when we went to Frankenmuth for dinner before Christmas, so I took them along to guild this week for her. Lori is one of the girls who made several of the pin cushions I have. Thought these would go along with her sock monkey collection. And I have her round robin to work on this month - guess what it's theme is? You're right!!!
