well, who knew that posting a few random blocks that I embroidered would create such a stir?! not I, folks, not I. I've received phone calls, emails and all sorts of funny comments, and for that, I have to snicker.
Here's the 411...One of my absolute favorite things to do in Utah is to buy more fabric.
Love it. Favorite.
Do you realize how many stores are dedicated to selling ONLY fabric? AND in Utah County alone...it is...well, absolutely wonderful.
My mom, becca, and lizbert (2 of my 3 sisters) were out and about one afternoon and found some clearance fabric at Broadbent's in Lehi (just off of main street). It is that cactus green fabric. So, because we all love a good deal, I bought 3 yards of it. I had some left over brown fabric from a quilt I had made for Kirstin (aaron's sister) and thought to myself, why not make another quilt! I have been making a bright (non flannel) quilt for our bed (try a king size...ahh! way in over my head) and I thought, why don't I practice the actual "quilting" part on this mini blanket before I ruin the one that I'm making for the big time bed. That was my intent. As you look closely, you will notice NO real quilting done. Darn. Yeah, I messed up in the cutting stage. So, I did the old standby "rag quilt".
But is it for a baby? yes.
Mine? Sure, whenever I have one.
Am I pregnant? Nope.
Are you? Let me know.
Should I give it to you? Maybe.
Will I? probably not.
ha! I took those pictures this morning on my front porch. Some of them look like the thread is almost glowing. I don't know why. I am thinking my flash might have been on. They aren't the greatest, but you get the idea. Oh, and don't you love our flag on our front porch? me too.
