I can hardly believe it, this is such a "cold" summer. Today it's 78 degrees ( 25 Celsius) and that's only when it warmed up in the afternoon, this morning I needed a sweater. Here's a photo of sewing down the binding on Sabrina's quilt. I'm using a dark green binding to match the sashes on the quilt. And the backing is a flannel with dolphins on it. I looked up the name "Sabrina" and it has something to do with dolphins--I don't know what exactly. Remember Sophia Loren's first movie, "The Boy on a Dolphin?" (1957). Well, I'm digressing all over the place. Meanwhile, as I was enthusiastically sewing these three quilts, I have let my sewing-computer room go to rack and ruin--there's bits of fabric and batting all over the place. No matter, I will be trying to use up all these scraps right away on the next quilt. It seems that I have now given away my baby quilts to a new baby cousin (probably my second cousin or first cousin twice removed or some other technicality of relationship) and also my daughter's neighbor was having a breast operation and there went my emergency Get Well Soon quilt. Furthermore, the "Mommy and Me" at the library where my youngest works needs an I Spy quilt. So I have lots of quilts to sew. One thing I want to ask anyone reading this post--have I Spy quilts gone out of style? I had a lot of trouble finding a web site that was selling those bits of kids fabric.
And I'm also posting a photo of my latest creation, a crochet baby sweater that I made for my great niece. The pattern is on the Internet at http://www.coatsandclark.com/ pattern number WT2154. Except that I added the crochet flowers myself.
