Last weekend I really needed a break, so I basically let G2 watch TV for the whole day on Saturday. I know I am not going to win any mothering awards for that one, but by Saturday evening I was a much happier mom. I also think she was fighting off the headache / sore throat that is going around, otherwise she wouldn’t have sat still for that long even if I let her. During all the free time I had while Caillou was babysitting, I managed to finish the top for G1’s quilt – Peaches and Cream.
I am happy with how it turned out, and, more importantly, so is G1. I know it would be better if there was a bit more contrast in my two peach fabrics, but I wasn’t going to replace it.
I am planning on machine-quilting it with straight lines, so it shouldn’t take too long. I don’t think I’ll meet my goal of finishing by the end of September, but maybe by Canadian Thanksgiving (Oct.10). I can dream, anyway.
