It’s taken awhile but I’m slowly getting there with the playmat project. I can’t believe I thought I would be bored with Steve gone, I have so much more to do around the house. Steve pitches in a lot and it took him going away to remind me. Anyway, after measuring and cutting a bajillion fricken squares and figuring out where to place them, I popped them into little baggies and they’re waiting for me to sew into panels.
It wasn’t until last night that I was reminded of an old childhood book of mine… one with a quilt. A quilt I seemed to be subconsciously remaking for my children. How awesome is that!
You can see my half-arsed attempt at a pattern. It’s going to look good. Now that I’ve cut it all out I just have to be careful to keep the seams the same. I had a chat to my quilt lady and she’s going to help me put the back on and bind it altogether once Steve gets back and can look after Aidan. Aidan doesn’t like the quilt shop. Five minutes in that place and he wants to get out of there, the same goes with spotlight… must get that from his father.
