Not Knitting, but...

I am pregnant with a baby girl! and I am sewing! I don't know how to sew, so it is a learning process. This is actually the first item that I have ever made without my home ec teachers, my mother, or a friend. Needless to say, it is a simple pattern.

Yesterday, I went to Joann's. I picked out the pattern. I spent a million years trying to find the perfect fabric combinations that had enough left on the bolt for all the projects I want to make. Finally, I came home, ate, napped, and got to work. Voila, this morning, I finished my baby quilt. (I figure it can double as a picnic blanket as the reverse is all the checker pattern.)

In addition to the lovely quilt, I am going to make a bumper, bed skirt, basket liners, and a pillow for the glider.

The kitties really like the pattern paper. They hid under it, nested into it, tried to eat it, ran and dove into it, and used it as a sheild. Hopefully they didn't damage any pieces I need. If they did, I will still love them.
