you all know you cant have babies without a quilt or two... Last week for me.. was spent sewing up a storm. Two Quilts for Two identical baby Girls!
added amount of stress... these quilts came with their fair share. First of all I was so worried about making just the perfect quilt for her. I was trying to create something to suit their rooms, something plain, not too quilty, something modern, something with a babushka, something that matched her colours.. something quick as i had to make two... and i got myself in a HUGE mess! I had sewed two quilt tops together.. and HATED them!! I let them sit and torment me for a week and as the days counted down... It was Monday and i wanted to have them both done for the baby shower on Saturday. No pressure or anything!
My Lesson learnt.... Don't try and sew something that isn't you. People love gifts that are apart of you. Gifts that have your stamp of love and style.
pattern for you. Its a simple Quick fun quilt to put together. I think the pattern will make up a larger throw size version.
Oh... and Lesson number 2 learnt... REST!!
After a super busy week of sewing, kids, sports, dinners, the usual groceries, cleaning, washing, PLUS roadshow, late nights, my new exercise routine, baby showers, Fathers day and festivities,... i need to REST!
I had a nice early night planned for my hubby and I in front of the TV but instead i was lucky enough to spend the night in Hospital!
Yep, i spent the night in hospital with a kidney stone. Not fun! Doctors orders..Hubby's orders.. to take it easy for this week. SO i might just spend a few days in bed....
