ok. i know i said i'd be gone for a few days. but i finished two more super old projects, and that's cause for a post, right? and i am making progress in turning the guest/sewing room into the nursery. i plan to keep a corner for my machine and a bookshelf for my materials, but the rest needs to go away. so, tackling the piles has a dual purpose. and i only have 5 months to use it or lose it!
first up - a flannel baby receiving blanket, made with some dinosaur flannel that was in my grandma neppl's stash. this is one of the first "patchwork" projects i started, probably 2 1/2 years ago.
i didn't measure it, but it's smallish, made with 5 inch blocks. i made a little twill tape tag(in the bottom right), and stamped ct on it, you know, for craftytammie. but i need to figure out a way to make a tag that will fit my whole name on it. something i've been playing around with. anyone know a place i can pick up a fabric ink pad? hobby lobby and my local sewing/scrapbook shop didn't have any.
the second thing i finished is a tank top, which i started 4 years ago! i was embarrassed to pull it from the pile and see that it only needed a hem. oh, and one spot in the gathering under the chest area needed fixed. seriously, i felt shame. so in five minutes or less, i added a new top to my spring wardobe - and yes, i will be able to wear it, because it's a baby doll shape! plenty of room for the growing belly. i'm 16 weeks now!
