But sometimes... you just need to feel accomplished, right?
So the husband came home Thursday and announced that one of his coworkers is pregnant. YES! Baby quilt time!
"How far along is she?" "I dunno."
"When is she due?" "I dunno."
"Does she know the gender? Is she finding out?" "I dunno."
(Insert annoyed face here)
I finally dragged it out of him that she just found out she's pregnant, and he *thinks* she's roughly 8-10 weeks along. Sheesh.
Now, this is where the miracle of miracles occurred. My husband.... dramatic pause.... helped design a quilt. He picked the fabrics, he picked the inspiration quilt, and he even decided how he wanted it quilted!
He chose the Cat in the Hat fabric set from Robert Kaufman fabrics. He wanted it neutral and fun.
He googled, on his own, for similar quilts. He found this one, at Poppy Seed Fabrics.
He debated on whether a free-motion meander would be best or if the straight lines in the original were best.
He emailed me all his choices yesterday, and today, I present to you, the Cat in the Hat quickie quilt!
And the pieced back with other Seuss characters:
All bundled up, with a matching taggy type of toy:
So now, I feel accomplished. I've actually finished something, so that daunting pile of WIPs isn't filled with drudgery anymore. I haven't touched them, but at least I did something, right?
And I leave you with a fun sight from last night... my toddler, the hoarder. That would be three quilts (two are cheaters), four trucks, three stuffed puppies, and three balls. Oh, and a sippy cup. He sleeps like that most nights. :)
