Back to it

It's been a while between crafty sessions - due in part to the arrival of Harris Pedro - the newest addition to our family. He is a darling child most of the time - BUT - he doesn't really let me put him down for long enough to really get stuck into a sewing project. I have a sling that I carry him around in and I have mastered the art of typing with him in the sling so sewing is the next fronteir.

I did manage to cut a few things out before I had him so I have a few little projects to start with.
This below is going to be a toy giraffe. And I have a couple of aprons to sew up as well. I might start with the aprons to get the sewing finders back into touch.

I have decided that I am going to have an ongoing project this year of making a quilt. I am going to start off with a really easy pattern of just squares so I can get the techniques down pat. I would like to have it done by winter so that we have a nice rug to put over our laps when we are watching TV - but we will have to see how we go. I have a pattern so I am just in the process of deciding on fabrics now.
