No, I Haven't Forgotten or Given Up

I had to finish a quilt that someone ordered and I kinda-sorta procrastinated. Maybe. A little bit. So I spent the last two days working on the quilt literally all day long.

Today, I decided out of the blue to make cases for the Nintendo DSis that my two big kids got for Christmas. I wanted to buy them cases but they're about $25 each. So, I had each kid choose some fabric from my stash and I made up a pattern as I went along. I think they'll turn out nicely.

It's kind of a service to me and Morgan because now we don't have to spend money on cases, but I think my kids like the fact that *I* made the cases for them.

I'll post pictures as soon as they're both completely done.

Will you teach me to sew? Seriously?

I do quilts. But that's it. Oh - and pillow-case-couch-cushion-covers.

Pictures are not forthcoming.

I aspire to such greatness. Seriously. My older sister totally rocks in the sewing department-- as does my mom. But me, eh, not so much. I've sewn a few ragtime quilts. Very basic. I do make ducky towels. oh yes, and scrunchies! woot!

But I can do beaded socks like nobody's business.

I did make a super hero cape for my four year old. It is quite the coveted dress-up item. But I get anxiety thinking about making more and possibly messing up. lol
