Unfortunately, I haven't much time for sewing, but I have gotten a few things done over the past few weeks.
One thing I haven't gotten to is Cooper's quilt (it's weird not calling it Goose's Quilt!), so it's still sitting with just a few of the over 600 circles quilted.
I've gotten a few things made for myself that make this mommy life a little easier. One is this padded piece for the car seat handle. It's basically just a mini quilt (think mug rug size), but I used four layers of batting.
The shape looks all funny now, but that's because it's been wrapped around the seat handle for a month.
I bound it with ribbon I had on hand, which worked pretty well. I just wrapped it around the edge & sewed both sides down at once. The top side looks pretty nice, but I got in a hurry towards the end & it got messed up a bit on the back side.
I did manage to finish up a nursing cover as well, using the same green fabric.
I also finally managed to finish up my August blocks for the String Me Along Bee. They were much easier than I expected, so I feel even worse about putting them off so long.
Now I'm working on September's block for Sharon. She asked for something made with half square triangles. I've gotten the triangles all sewn together, now I just have to figure out how I want to put it all together.
I'm also still working on a crochet blanket, but I haven't had much time for it lately. One of these days I need to get a picture of it!
And of course, saving the best for last, I can't leave without sharing this:
Make sure you head over to Freshly Pieced to see what everybody else has been up to this week.
Until next time...
