The view from my lap.
Does anybody really enjoy seam-ripping? I've heard some say that it's kind of theraputic for them. I'm not one of those people. I really don't enjoy ripping out a seam that I just spent time sewing. However, I will say, there was something rather invigorating about sitting near the window light with this quilt made from scraps (plus a little extra from Wal-Mart) that I'm making for Malia on my lap. I love making something much from little.
I hit a snag in the whole process, as it is the first time I've machine-quilted. My grandmother has always graciously hand-stitched the other quilts I've made for my babies, but this time I decided 1)not to bother her, and 2)that I would like to do it all myself. Well, it's proven to be more difficult than I expected (thus the seam-ripping).
However, I am nearing the end and am actually quite excited about the end-product. Hopefully, end product pictures will soon follow. :)
