loving Thursdays

It’s Thursday again – my day without kids – well, for six hours or so anyway.  My day for trying to squeeze in all those tasks that can be done much more quickly without  the company of a four year old or a nine year old.  So while I am doing the ironing/visiting Medicare/visiting the travel agent/paying bills/getting petrol, I will be dreaming about quilting this work-in-progress.

I put this together during the holidays back in January. It took very little time, and was lots of fun to do. I have backing fabric, I have batting, I have binding fabric. I just need some time to baste it and quilt it!

Size wise it’s a small lap quilt, perfect for in the car, on your lap, or for a baby. I’ll possibly make another for my niece Leah – because she’s having a baby in July! I’m going to be a great-aunt! Who’d have thought it…

You can get the pattern for this quilt from the talented Kate.  Go on, make one!  But I’d better get back to that to-do list. Now!
