Now you see it…..

This tub had been holding all the things that I had started but had yet to finish. (Actually my mom helped me with many of these last year at Spring break…YIKES) Anyway, they sat and sat because I got interrupted by good things, by bad things, by, well, life. Anyway, as it turns out, now I really need the space and so one of my goals was to finish all those projects.

1. Minkee lovies – to be donated to the NICU that Taylor was in when he was born. Perfect size for preemies and just great all around. They aren’t really meant to cover up the baby, just to give them something soft to hold and love. They’re great – plus they used up scrap fabric. Yes, I too, hate to throw things away that might have some sort of use. It seems to run in my family.

2. Six bags. A few details need to be finished…I will be hand sewing the lining seams when I watch TV (or when they sell!) So I guess it’s not really done…but done enough for me to get it out of the box. There is one bag that didn’t make the photo shoot. And OK – I have to be honest….there were 7 bags, but I was so mad at one that I just threw it in the trash. I know, I said that I don’t like to throw things away. You see, for those of you who are unaware, sewing can be quite the emotional adventure. And this was beyond hope…maybe it’s not nice…and I probably should have tried to recycle the item. Sorry!

3. Cheater Quilt – Winnie the Pooh and his friends. SUPER DUPER cute! And of course minkee for the backing. SUPER DUPER cuddly! I call it a cheater quilt, because it’s really just a panel that looks like a pieced quilt. I machine quilted around some of the pieces to give it a more authentic look, and to hold the batting in place. Since I was using minkee, I didn’t want to quilt all the way through.

It’s just what had to be done. It made me think of Cathy. (Hi!) If she has another baby maybe I’ll make one for her. JT probably doesn’t need it now. What do you think? If he does, email me. Oh….or I could send her this.

It’s a cute hooded towel I made a while back. Ok, sorry I’m getting side tracked.

A few other things too…boppy covers, aprons…the usual. A real quilt (crib sized) had to be moved to a new location. So technically I didn’t finish everything in the box…but close enough. Anyway –

Now you don’t! Magic? I wish!

    I had wondered about the little size blankets. Good idea to donate to the NICU. Good luck getting everything else finished up too.
    Proud of you!
    Love, Mom

    very impressive — lots to cross of the to-do-list, which always makes one feel better…

    You’ve done much better at getting things done than I have – procrastination has overcome me!!!

    That’s great! I understand the frustration of sewing sometimes. A few items of mine have unexpectedly met the garbage when emotion has overcome me. LOL
