Fun Project

After a show there's always a down time, at least mentally. For me, the first few days after a long show like the Guild Fair are days to kind of lay low, get my energy back.
So, once I did, I worked on a project that's been on the back burner for a couple of months. This summer a couple of babies were born to grandchildren of a very special person to us. The great grandparents of these babies aren't with us any longer but in their memory and to honor their daughter (grandmother of the babies), I like to make blankets for the babies. There were 2 already that I'd done blankets for. You can't have some with blankets and some not, so when I found that there were 2 more coming, I pulled out my fabrics.
This quilt is very similar to one I made for another baby a year or so ago.
 Who wouldn't like a cute farm scene on a quilt!
 Tractors and fields, barns and cows....
 You can't see the binding well, but it's black with white polka dots. I didn't have any fabric specifically saved for that so in looking what I had left over from other projects, like that lady bug quilt, there was enough of the polka dot to find the quilt. It fits nicely.
That quilt's done and ready to ship.
The other quilt is in the process of being quilted. I'll have a picture of it next week. I hope to finish it today or tomorrow!! I love the theme of this one too.....can you figure it out yet?
This week I have to finish an order for a dress, ship a couple of things like baby blankets! and even weave a new warp that's in the planning stages.
Just a regular week here. Projects begun, worked on and finished. Life as usual!
Until next week, keep weaving!!

I love that farm baby blanket. Sounds like you are very, very busy.
