Here we are on the heels of the weekend again. But this one - this one was golden! On Saturday I wrapped up 3 (yes, THREE) projects that have been meandering their way towards "finished", and today we went bike riding as a family along the riverfront. Thank-you, autumn!
Oh, and I also had the most perfect binding experience of my life. It was practically holy. Brandon can attest that I sang more than one "alleluia". Tutorial to come.... just as soon as I have another quilt to bind.
Excuse me, would you like one of these?
Really? No? Even if they have baby socks on them?
Well, in my family these puppies are baby essentials. We believe in the pacifier. And, we mostly try to keep them clean. I used Dana's super duper tutorial to whip them up. Life would have been even peachier if I had a serger, but pressing and hemming did the trick. Sides, my mother-in-law says sergers tend to suck your time with all the threading. So, I like to tell my not-often-apparel-sewing self that I really don't want one. Someday, when I'm fully evolved and sew all my own clothes, I'm sure I'll revise that.
Anyways, these pacifier chains have been on the to do list for some time because I wanted to send some to a certain preggo sister for whom I made this quilt. Package is out the door in the morning. Hurrah!
I'm not sure, but it's possible that the best thing about finishing is deciding what's next.
