I must have been crazy...

I'm working on the back for the new quilt (which is taking longer than the top!), and was thinking about how long it took me to finish up Coop's quilt.  I got curious, and couldn't remember exactly when I basted it, other than remembering I was pregnant out to here & miserable crawling around on the floor to pin it.  I just looked back, and realized I must have been insane.  Or nesting.  Or...something...but probably just plain nuts.

Here Raven is "helping" me baste Coop's quilt, what ended up being just 10 days before I had him. 


And here's me two months before that (I apparently didn't take any pictures of myself after that...huh...), so I was still very much growing. 

Yes, I had some of my maternity pictures taken while standing in a soybean field.
There are corn pictures too. :)

Did I mention crazy?  I remember I was sweating buckets, it was so hot, even though I had the AC cranked & was freezing poor hubby out of the house.  And I was watching some random kids' cooking competition.  I was in such a hurry to get it done, and somehow I still thought I might be able to finish it before Coop was born.  

Anyways, there's really not much point to all this, except to remind myself that I really can't complain when it comes time to baste this quilt.  It should be a complete cakewalk compared to the last one!

Until next time...


  1. Pets are ever-so-helpful when it comes to "assisting" with sewing projects! :)

  2. Yep, I think you were ever so slightly crazy ;-) it was worth it though!

  3. Does this mean you are working on number 2? After all, if you are basting?...


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
